Ash Yurt is a high quality luxury yurt with large windows, French doors and a beautiful clear dome. Other than its sister, Oak Yurt, it is unlike any other yurt in the UK. Its unique interior design provides a cottage feel inside a canvas and wood structure. A spacious, light living area combined with Douglas fir rafters and lattice work make it a special space for family and friends to enjoy. An integral kitchen, bathroom, private ground floor bedroom and special upstairs sleeping area brings something very different from the usual glamping experience. The furnishings ensure you have all the comforts of home whilst enjoying a relaxing break in the heart of beautiful farmland.
Ash Yurt and Oak Yurt are based on a small working farm in a rural location near the villages of Waldron and East Hoathly in the picturesque countryside of East Sussex. The surrounding landscape is predominately farmland with peaceful country lanes leading to the nearby villages and main roads. Uckfield and Heathfield are the closest small towns with the pretty county town of Lewes within a 20 minute drive.
