Orchard view Yurt
Staying in this beautifully presented yurt gives you a rare and – so often nowadays – hard to come by opportunity to have a secret and secluded location all to yourselves and nature. No one overlooks you here, in the fields below the treeline where the Mendip Hills dip down to the west Somerset coast.
The magic of this very special experience includes a hot tub. orchard view yurt has the sense of an oasis. The hut and its hot tub sit in a fully enclosed garden. which you will only ever share with the visiting birds high up above on the thermals above the ridge of the valley.
The whole area leading up into the Mendips is not only one of the UK’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but the farmstead itself is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. This means that the countryside here is unspoilt. One of the favourite spots for you to discover is a viewing platform tucked into the edge of the woodland in the top corner of the field above the yurt. From here you can see the sea and, on a clear day, right across the Bristol Channel.
The adventure starts when you park up your car and load your belongings golf cart and our driver will transport you to your Unique hideaway. The route to the yurt takes you on a short walk, gently uphill through an historic orchard – in the autumn the trees are laden with delicious apples.
Down in the village, just a short stroll away, there is a village pub and Chinese takeaway. For a change of scenery, you can set off to the long sandy beach at Weston-Super-Mare just three miles away at the bottom of the valley where you can look across the sea to the tiny wildlife islands of Flatholm and Steepholm. The Victorian pier and the long promenade are great for strolling on a warm summer’s day or even on a blustery out-of-season one to blow the cobwebs away! Or you can head up into the Mendip Hills and take in the incredible panoramic views right across the Somerset Levels, or climb the trails up to the top of the famous Cheddar Gorge and the less well known but equally stunning Ebbor Gorge.
