Gurt Yurt

Open: April 1st to October 31st

The Yurt: The site is in the Mendip Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set in your own private corner of the meadow, the yurt is an oasis for wild life. You may be lucky enough to get a visit from our local deer who often amble into the meadow, normally in the morning. You will certainly be serenaded by the wild birds.

Facilities: The yurt has a king sized brass bed and the bedding is Egyptian cotton. The skylight lets you stargaze all night. AS well as a wood burning stove there is an electric blanket for extra comfort on chilly nights. The veranda is great for watching the sun sink at the end of the day. Hammocks are available outside. We have some impressive sunsets over the Severn Estuary from May through to August.

You have your own private hot shower and wash house next to the yurt, the toilet is a compost toilet. You have a kettle, toaster and single hot plate in your yurt so you don’t even need to brave the elements for a cuppa on chilly mornings.

Local Area: There are many well-regarded pubs within walking distance at either end of the Batch. The Crown and the Nelson at the bottom of the hill, the Star and the Swan in the opposite direction and Thatcher’s Railway Inn over in Sandford. Churchill is a village on the western edge of the Mendip Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, about 8 miles east of Weston-super-Mare, and about 15 miles south-west of Bristol. There are many walks, cycle paths, and climbing opportunities nearby. Cheddar offers many beautiful walks, trails, cycle paths and lovely tea shops, and is also walkable from the yurt.

Your neighbours: You may find deer, foxes, squirrels, owls and the unseen badgers hanging out already. The rescue chickens will almost be certainly be round to check you out. The meadow has a variety of wild flowers including wild orchids. The wood behind the yurt is a mix of ash, oak, hazel and hawthorn hiding you from view for most of the year.
