    “It was just what I needed.”

    A perfect break from everything without losing the mod cons. There was no tv and this was just perfect. We had a pc to watch movies in the evening. It was so lovely to wake up to the lake and geese, ducks and swans in the morning. After a few days the ducks got so used to us they would come onto our decking, have a look around then go back in the pond. Be careful not to leave the yurt door open when out of site as the ducks will go inside! It was so peaceful and nice to wake up in the ...

    A perfect break from everything without losing the mod cons. There was no tv and this was just perfect. We had a pc to watch movies in the evening. It was so lovely to wake up to the lake and geese, ducks and swans in the morning. After a few days the ducks got so used to us they would come onto our decking, have a look around then go back in the pond. Be careful not to leave the yurt door open when out of site as the ducks will go inside! It was so peaceful and nice to wake up in the morning and not see houses, people or cars. There was a limited bus service into Tewkesbury and Evesham. Both lovely towns. Like going back in time when you come from a city - in a nice way. People are so friendly. The owners were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The bed was clean and comfortable. Having a dishwasher was a real luxury. I loved sitting on the decking in the morning and also going in the hot tub in the evening. It was a real escape. Even though the owners house and other yurts were close by the yurt was so secluded it felt like being alone in the countryside. For those on public transport the bus can be flagged down by the side of the road. They do stop running at 5.45 from Tewkesbury. We didn't try to get a taxi back so not sure how much that would cost. The hob worked well. There was a fire in the outdoor seating area and it can be made more sheltered on a rainy day by closing the sliding door. Excellent place to stay. Have looked at other yurt holidays but they don't have the extra home comforts like this one does.

About the property

A truly unique Gloucestershire holiday home!

This 16 foot round modern yurt is set in an idyllic location overlooking the owner's fishing lake, on the outskirts of the pretty village of Beckford, on the Gloucestershire/Worcestershire border, in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Surprisingly spacious, this wonderful cosy Gloucestershire holiday home is ideal for a romantic retreat.

This unusual Gloucestershire holiday accommodation has been stylishly furnished, including a fitted kitchen, delightful roll-top bath and a dining area from where you can enjoy views across the lake.

The hand-built wooden veranda outside this Gloucestershire property is an ideal place for alfresco dining and enjoying the peace and tranquillity on offer.

Guests at this Gloucestershire holiday home will also enjoy the sole use of the outdoor hot tub, set next to the yurt overlooking the lake.

The delights of the Cotswolds, including the village of Broadway, are close by, as are numerous National Trust properties, the town of Cheltenham and miles of wonderful English countryside.

A real hidden gem, and a very special Gloucestershire holiday property.

About the location

BECKFORD

Evesham & Tewkesbury 6 miles; Cheltenham 9 miles; Broadway 11 miles.

The pretty village of Beckford boasts many amenities, with an excellent country inn, Norman church and nature reserve, in one of the most unspoilt areas of England.

The regency spa town of Cheltenham, with its range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants, pubs, and famous Gold Cup horse racing, is a short drive away. Also close is Broadway, a quintessential English village, one of the most beautiful in the Cotswolds, offering a superb range of unique shops and boutiques, top class art galleries, restaurants and hotels and steeped in history with its origins dating back to Roman times. The surrounding open countryside offers agricultural shows, open gardens and village fetes, plus many lovely walks, cycles trails, museums and National Trust properties - something to suit all tastes at any time of year.
