We are sure that you are going to fall in love with at least one of these Yurts for your next Lake District holiday. Have fun choosing!

The Lovely Yurt Company

Set amongst 20 acres of natural woodland and just a 10 minute walk to the shores of Windermere in the heart of the Lakes.


Located at the southern end of the lake at Windermere the woodland makes an ideal setting for these three Yurts. In spring time the daffodils and bluebells add carpets of colour and in the winter the wood affords spectacular views over Windermere lake. The yurts nestle in secluded clearings with plenty of open space and stunning views over Lake Windermere and beyond. The site is a private woodland rather than a traditional campsite and therefore enjoys a high level of freedom and privacy.

The stream fed hot water shower comes with this incredible view! and is for the sole use of guests at the yurts. Additional toilet/wash facilities are just a couple of minute's walk from the yurts.

There is a fresh water tap in the woodlands for those mundane tasks like washing up, in addition to ten litres of drinking water in each yurt.

Made from local sustainable wood and designed to blend with its natural surroundings 'Crogin' is by the river in the pretty Eden Valley, perfect for watching fish jump, owls swoop and maybe, just maybe spotting the elusive otter?


Furnished with a good comfy bed and warm snuggly duvet the yurt has been designed to blend in with its surroundings, whilst providing you with the comforts not normally found with outdoor life, such as a wood-burner for those chilly evenings and a well equipped dedicated outdoor kitchen.

The loos and shower are eco-friendly and designed for minimum impact on the local environment - they will even supply you with eco-friendly shampoo!

One of the facilities which really makes Drybeck stand out from the crowd are the provision of a dedicated cookhouse for each accommodation. These include an electric supply, running water, an oven with hob, and a fridge plus all the utensils and crockery that you will need. We also love that each cookhouse has its own decking with table and chairs.
