Buzzard Yurt sleeps up to six and is set apart from the other yurts on a small plateau on a hillside with remarkable views. It can only be accessed on foot via a short, but steep grassy path up the hillside. You can park at the bottom in your own grass lay-by.
Flanked by mature oak and ash trees, with stunning, panoramic views across the valley, it provides a wonderful vantage point for watching local wildlife. You may be lucky enough to spot deer, foxes and buzzards! The hillside is covered with native grassland where butterflies abound.
A ‘field kitchen’ beside the yurt is kitted out with a camping gas stove, and cutlery, crockery, utensils and pots and pans are provided. It also has its own barbeque and fire pit (all wood supplied for log burners and fire pits). There is also a composting loo hidden in a little copse next to the yurt.
Buzzard has an extensive wooden deck with outdoor furniture for you to relax and enjoy the view. Fresh water is on tap at the bottom of the hill, and we will leave you with a supply of water to get you started.
