Somerset Yurts, West Monkton, Taunton, Somerset

2 - 36 10 Bed

Rural glamping site offering a flexible venue for wedding parties with marquee space for 120 guests, near Taunton

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Somerset Yurts, West Monkton, Taunton, Somerset, sleeps 2 - 36 in 10 bedrooms.

Somerset Yurts is a lovely Yurt (and Dome and Safari tent) glamping site spread over about 3 acres on our Dairy Farm, with a wonderful old Dutch Barn or party tent site that will be yours exclusively for a 3 night weekend and to host your wedding reception. Both sites have access to water and electricity for your entertainment and catering requirements.
In addition to our Dutch barn, there is also a large flat marquee site in one of the Yurt fields – so there’s space for you to hire in a large party tent to host your guests with more of a festival wedding setting – we’re flexible and want to help you create the perfect event for you to celebrate with your friends and family.
We can host up to 120 guests for the evening reception – and we can sleep around 30 guests across our gorgeous yurts and safari tents, with extra space for campers too – contact us for more details.
We’re not licensed for the formal ceremony, so you’ll need to do the legal marriage part elsewhere; if you need suggestions for that please get in touch – but we can help you host your evening celebration the way you want it in the beautiful Somerset countryside.
