Our Yurt Village is a traditional Mongolian design, brought up to the 21st Century. Hand built, the structure is wooden framed with canvas covering and the space between is filled with natural sheep fleece and Mongolian horsehair insulation.

There are four bedrooms around a central main communal yurt. The bedroom accommodation comfortably sleeps 25 and there is capacity to sleep 3 additional people on futons in the main room. The main room has a bespoke built kitchen with electric oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster, sinks with hot and cold running water and all the pots and pans, crockery and cutlery you need.

The two main bedrooms have sets of bunk beds sleeping 10 in each with an en-suite toilet and sink located just off each room. There are two smaller rooms which each has an accessible/high dependency bed and a set of bunk beds which can be used for additional sleeping or for staff

The buildings were designed with accessibility in mind and are regularly used by groups of young people with additional needs who have found the accommodation comfortable, calming and creative.


In the summer months we also have a fun camping ground located around a central fire pit and bench seating. This makes a perfect environment for young people to experience camping, the joy of safe campfire, cooking schmores, telling stories and singing songs.

Booking the centre for a residential is easy. Accomodation can be booked from one night minimum.
