The Lakeside Yurt was unusual, romantic, relaxing and exactly what we had hoped for. The hot tub was amazing! We were left in peace all weekend and haven't slept so well in years. Can't wait to return.

Ms Beirne, Swadlincote, February 2014

We had a wonderful week, it couldn't have been better.

Mrs Heron, Derby, November 2013

It's unique and we enjoyed the peace and quiet.

Mrs Aldridge, Rugby, October 2013

The Yurt was everything we had hoped for and more. The location and the privacy were perfect for a romantic getaway, and also great for just relaxing and unwinding and getting away from the world! Luckily for us the weather was brilliant, and we especially enjoyed the fishing, rowing round the lake and the fact that we could take our dog! The uniqueness of the Yurt and it's facilities and surroundings made this a very special break!
