We are delighted to announce that our brand-new yurt is now available to book for stays between April and October. The aptly named Orchard Yurt is nestled at the far end of the orchard and is the epitome of luxury glamping on Exmoor. We know you’ll love it as much as we do!
After receiving planning permission to add a yurt to the orchard, we commissioned a handmade yurt by Somerset company Avalon Yurts. Not only does it blend seamlessly with its natural surroundings, but it’s also incredibly spacious, with enough room for a king-size bed, comfy bean bag chairs, clothing storage and a wood-burning stove.
Next to the yurt, you will find our bespoke oak-framed gazebo built by the extremely talented Harry at Horizon Shepherds Huts (who also built our huts!) Designed for basic cooking, the wooden gazebo houses a gas hob and all the cooking equipment, utensils and crockery you’ll need for alfresco dining. Plus, garden seating, which you can move out onto the decking to enjoy lunch in the sunshine or keep under the covered gazebo if unlucky with the weather.
Relax and recharge with everything you’ll need for a memorable stay
Of course – no luxury glamping stay on Exmoor would be complete without a fire pit and wood-fired hot tub. Picture yourself now, cosying up around the firepit, toasting marshmallows and reminiscing together under Exmoor’s dark skies. Heavenly, isn’t it? How about relaxing in your private, wood-fired hot tub with a glass of bubbly in hand, illuminated by romantic fairy lights and twinkling stars? There’s no better place to enjoy quality time together as a couple. You might even consider a digital detox. Who needs a screen when you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings of our orchard in the company of your favourite person? We highly recommend taking yourself offline for your stay – it’s good for the soul.
Sustainable glamping on Exmoor
Here at Orchard Escapes, we’re all for celebrating nature and making planet-friendly choices. Orchard Yurt is, therefore, completely off-grid, using solar power for the lighting (indoor and outdoor), USB charging points and a 12v fridge. We’re also keen to locally source as many products and produce for our guests as possible, including:
- Logs for the wood-fired hot tub from our farm
- Eggs from our farm
- Meat from Little Oak Farm (5 miles away)
- Bread from Glenmore Bakery in Minehead
- Tea/Coffee from Miles
And we welcome you to experience a taste of Exmoor, helping yourselves to our apples, pears and plums from the orchard in the autumn.
