DELIGHTFUL YURT SET AT THE TOP OF A PRIVATE ORCHARD, IDEAL FOR WALKING

REGRET NO CHILDREN OR INFANTS

Designed for two, this accommodation is superbly positioned to walk directly  from the door and up onto the Black Mountains, or simply sit back, relax and take in the far reaching views across the rolling border countryside.

The property is set in an area where there are some great walks.  The Black Hill (from On The Black Hill fame) and The Black Mountains can be reached directly from the property. The 285km Offa’s Dyke Path (the ancient border between England and Wales) is easily reached for the more enthusiastic walkers.  Longtown has a handy, award winning village store and is just a 5 minute drive away.  Or take time to visit one of the many castles, such as White Castle, Skenfrith and Raglan Castle.  For shopping Hay-on-Wye, with its famous Literary Festival is just a 25 minute drive away.

The accommodation offers: 

Living/sleeping area - with wood-burner (basket of logs included), large beanbag and floor cushions. Sleeping area has a handmade double bed. Bathroom area: with roll top bath and hand-held shower inside the yurt and a compost toilet outside.  Kitchen area: with a wood fired pizza oven and sink, cool box, situated outside and partially covered by a sail.  Dining area: dining table and chairs, situated outside.

COUNTRY PUBS:  Great Welsh Border pubs within easy reach, from The Bridge at Michelchurch Escley, The Temple Bar & The Dog in Ewyas Harold, all get rave reviews and there's a traditional country pint to be had in the nearest village of Longtown too.

WINE & DINE:  Romantic meals are assured at Toi et Moi, a fabulous French restaurant in the pretty Golden Valley village of Abbey Dore, booking essential (01981 240244). Hay on Wye & Abergavenny have great restaurants too. Enjoy a Michelin starred lunchtime treat at either The Walnut Tree Inn  or The Hardwick.

WALKING: There is some seriously fine walking from the door. The Black Hill (from On the Black Hill fame) & the Black Mountains themselves can be reached directly from the yurt.  Simply head off through the gate! The 285 km Offa's Dyke Path, the 8th Century Border between England & Wales, is easily reached (if not completed!) for the very keen...or just take a long walk down the lane to the pub!

CYCLING:  As great as the walking is, there is also great road biking along the picturesque lanes, and challenging mountain routes up on the hill. There are MBT centres throughout the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains for those who like to get a little muddy!  Bike hire is available in nearby Hay on Wye.

TOWNS & VILLAGES:  Longtown, with its award winning village store, Hopes of Longtown, is just a 5 minutes drive away, perfect for the morning papers and to stock up on local supplies (highly recommend the ice cream)!  Hay on Wye, with its famous Literary Festival is just a 25 minute drive away, with 30 plus independent bookshops and stores, as well as some lovely places to eat.  Abergavenny is 30 minutes away with the Abergavenny Food Festival each September now proving one of the best in the UK.  The Cathedral City of Hereford, with the Mappa Mundi can also be reached in 30 minutes.

CULTURE & CASTLES: The Norman Conquest saw a large number of castles springing up in the Welsh Marches, many of which still remain in some form or other today. White Castle, Skenfrith, Longtown, Grosmont and Raglan Castle are certainly worth a visit for a touch of local history. There are lots of beautiful old churches and abbey's around too.

SLEEPS 2: Designed just for two.  Beautiful handmade bed, with deep, cosy mattress - bedlinen and towels included.

RELAXING: Wood burning stove inside the yurt with plenty of logs available. Large beanbags, coffee table, floor cushions. Outside dining table and chairs, plus two hardwood reclining chairs with cushions for the deck.

COOKING : Hand made kitchen with really clever wood fired oven (really well suited to stonebaked pizzas), basin, hot and cold water. Equipped with all the crockery and cutlery you should need, handy washing up liquid, salt, pepper, tea, coffee, milk & local Tyrells crisps provided.

KEEPING CLEAN : Roll top bath inside the yurt, lashings of hot and cold running water, shower attachment.  A clean and very civilised compost loo!

MAKE A FIRE: There's a wood burning stove inside the yurt with logs at the ready to keep you really warm, a fire bowl outside the yurt for toasting marshmallows and getting back to nature, plus a wood burning pizza oven for rustling up some alfresco fayre.

STAYING CONNECTED: There is an electric charging socket within the yurt for phones / ipad's etc. We managed to get 3G whilst in the yurt, we can't promise that everyone will, but the EE/Orange network certainly kept us connected.

PETS: Sorry, no pooches allowed here.  Have a look at Black Mountains Yurt for a pet friendly stay.

ACCESS:  Access is all year round as this is the only  yurt with us set up for snug winter stays.  It is located at the top of a hill through an orchard, so those with mobility challenges might find access tricky .....and please pack your welly boots in the winter!

KIDS:  Please note that this is an adult only property.
