Little Green Yurt - Southern CumbriaBroughton in Furness sits just on the southern edge of The Lake District National Park and that's where you'll find this Little Green Yurt, situated amongst idyllic rolling Cumbrian countryside.
The Little Green Yurt is not just green in colour either. It's furnished with many locally sourced products and accessories too .... we love this coffee & tea idea . The Yurt is tucked away, on a working farm campsite which encourages Green tourism and runs the Lakeland Pack Horse walking tours.
Furnishings includes a bespoke double bed made from locally harvested oak and you'll be kept toasty warm on those cooler days via the wood-burning stove, which was also locally manufactured. The wood-burner has a flat top which doubles as a cook space, though a double calor burner is also provided along with all the basics you'll need for catering.
Showers, loos and a place to wash your pots are shared with the farm campsite - these are a short distance away down a rough farm track, adding to the sense of a true 'rural retreat'. You'll need to bring your own towels and tea towels; torches are also recommended as the route to washing facilities is uneven.
A basket of wood and gas for the cooker are included and there are two futon beds in addition to the double bed. For detailed information, including cost and availability please go to the The Little Green Yurt website.

Wild in Style Yurts
Wild in Style have two different syles of Yurt, both unique in the ambience they provide.
The traditional Yurt, viewed by some as the most beautiful yurt, has steam bent walls and roof poles with an oak ring which has been bent to form the crown.
Their other Yurt is completely different in both look and feel as it uses bamboo. The properties of which are amazing, as bamboo has a tensile strength greater than steel! The strength of the bamboo means there is less requirement for so much wood also giving it a light and airey feel.
The Yurts have a double gas burner - with a toaster attachement(great for heating Naans and making croutons) and a Jaffle iron which is perfect for campfire toasties. Crockery, cutlery and cooking pots and utensils are all provided as is salt, pepper, spices, oil, tea and coffee and tea lights.
There is no fridge, so bring a cool box and the camp shop should be able to refreeze blocks for you. There is a 12volt supply for lighting and if you who need to run a laptop, charge a mobile phone etc a second battery can be provided upon request. It should power one for 6/8 hours but once this time is up you are back to the sounds of nature!
A wood burning stove, keeps the place cozy during the cooler months and each yurt will comfortably sleep 4, on futon/sofa beds. Freshly laundered bed linen is povided for you.
