Want to STAY IN A YURT?
We have five beautifully handcrafted yurts at Oak Cottage that you and your family could stay in. Yurts have been used in central Asia for centuries as portable round tents. The yurts here are put up every March and come down in late October. The first yurt to ever come here was a traditional style Mongolian yurt made using traditional techniques. This yurt is very slightly smaller than the other yurts and its name is Oak. It is the nearest to the facilities and kitchen. Oak has a bright colourful interior in keeping with traditional Mongolian style.
The other four yurts we have are named Ash, Hazel, Apple and Maple they have all been lovingly hand made in Norfolk. Each yurt is named after the type of tree which it stands next to in its garden.
All the yurts have a cosy wood burner for those colder days and nights a basket of wood with firelighters are provided to make your stay extra cosy, additional baskets can be purchased at £7 each. There are 3 solar powered lanterns to provide lighting in the yurts at night, in the day the light pours in from the central crown at the top of the yurt which is wonderful for star gazing at night.
Each yurt is uniquely furnished with a blanket box, chest of drawers, cushions and blankets. A comfy double bed and up to two futons for additional beds and seating.
Outside a tented canopy provides shade and shelter for a table and chairs and BBQ.
The communal facilities provide clean and hot showers and toilets with underfloor heating. There is use of a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer. The beautiful and well-equipped garden kitchen has your own fridge, cupboard, cutlery, crockery, cafetière if there is anything else you require during your stay please just ask. Eco washing up liquid, cloths, tea towels are provided as is olive oil, salt pepper and sugar.

“Thank you so much for such a wonderful week and for being such amazing hosts! You really made it a birthday to remember. Highly recommend staying in a Suffolk Yurt Holidays Yurt”
“We just wanted to message to say that we had a wonderful time last weekend, and the stay surpassed our expectations all over again, even though we are 'old hands'! It truly is THE most relaxing experience, and we unwind there like nowhere else. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.”
“We took our two young children who quickly made friends with the other children and it was great to have such a safe environment for them to have the freedom to run around in. They loved at the age of 5 and 2 to have such independence!”
