    We arrived at the Yurt for a 7 night visit but unfortunately we had to leave 2 nights short. Upon arrival we were really happy with the setting absolutely beautiful surroundings however that’s as far as it goes. Upon reading past reviews we had high expectations of a romantic luxury break but we were pretty disappointed to find the yurt very dated, the outside area absolutely covered in cobwebs/dirt.

    We arrived at the Yurt for a 7 night visit but unfortunately we had to leave 2 nights short. Upon arrival we were really happy with the setting absolutely beautiful surroundings however that’s as far as it goes. Upon reading past reviews we had high expectations of a romantic luxury break but we were pretty disappointed to find the yurt very dated, the outside area absolutely covered in cobwebs/dirt. The stargazing skylight was so scratched and dirty you couldn’t see out of it in the daylight. Water in the hot tub very murky as if it had never been cleaned out prior to arrival. I then went to use the bbq however only one side would light. Drinking glasses all chipped pretty much all crockery very dated. Nothing matches!! We were absolutely plagued by flys the entire time we were there. So generally a pretty disappointing time! Wildlife however on another league you could spend hours just watching all different species of birds and the fishing was great! We personally will not be returning in the future.
