An ideal setting for a group of friends or families with children, you can enjoy your own space in your accommodation, but make the most of the communal kitchen/dining area, campfire, and large fields to play in!

4 authentic Mongolian yurts, one beautifully handcrafted UK made yurt, a gorgeously spacious geodome, and 2 luxury lodges each with a comfy double bed and double futon/daybed, with plenty of room for a 5th and 6th person on campbeds/roll out mattresses. You will be kept cosy and warm with a wood burning stove, blankets and rugs. A dining table and chairs, plus an electric socket for charging your essentials, make this a camping experience without any of the discomfort!

Outside each yurt is a deck area with bench and table, near to which you will find a barbecue, gas camping stove, and picnic table.

A large Dutch barn provides communal cooking and dining facilities for 20, as well as showers and loos. A games corner in the communal barn has some child friendly activities such as colouring-in books, playdough, and board games as well as books, magazines and maps of the local area.

Just outside the kitchen is a large undercover area which allows for outdoor cooking and seating for 24 - perfect for big groups wanting to barbecue together, and get some shade from the sun (or cover from the rain!). A communal fire pit is in the corner of the yurt field, great for a big group get together in the evening, watching the sun set, and toasting marshmallows.

Nearby Fyne Court and Hestercombe Gardens are perfect places to explore - especially with children who love the nature trails, with ponds, rivers and streams! West Somerset Railway offers a great day out, with old fashioned steam trains winding you through the beautiful Quantock Hills to the stunning North Somerset and Exmoor Coastline. The Quantocks themselves are also an amazing place to discover on foot and by bike. A local pub and restaurant within 2 miles provide excellent venues for group meals, we can also recommend local catering companies and outdoor adventure activities for hen parties.
