GLAMPING IN A YURT NEAR LONDON
More than just glamping!
A stay in our lovely community orchard yurt is a unique experience and funds our wonderful community orchard project – providing free fruit for the community and an educational green public space.
Some years ago a few of us formed a small environmental community group, in our village in South Herts. We ran a number of small environmental initiatives and were later awarded a grant for a big community orchard project, which is the site where our yurt is now based. Here we have planted over 80 fruit and nut trees on the 5 acre site, we have a bee hive, and a willow bed for coppicing. The yurt allows us a dry space to meet and take shelter when we are working in or celebrating the orchard. We also rent it out to help cover our essential overheads for the project, so anyone staying here is directly helping support this community initiative. Although a public site, the yurt and fields are very quiet and unique in the fact the yurt stands alone – not part of a commercial venture, for truly unique glamping.
If you would like to stay, yurt prices start at £60 p/n, to find out more please contact us at
