The Space This 6m diameter handcrafted Mongolian Yurt is off-grid and the only glamping style accommodation on the Island. We have 1 double futon and 2 single futons sleeping 4 in total. All the beds fold up easily for ample seating through the day. A central wood burning stove will ensure a cozy stay even if the weather takes a turn. A dinner table, chairs and 2 traditional Mongolian chests complete the furniture. Guest Access Guests will have access to all crockery, cutlery, pots/pans and glasses. A small gas stove is available to supplement the large BBQ grill for cooking outside. We provide a small supply of logs for the wood burning stove. Separate to the Yurt is a newly refurbished toilet and shower facility and a large outdoor stainless steel sink unit for washing up. All linen, bedding and towels are provided. Guests have access to the whole garden and any eggs our small flock of chickens can provide. Interaction with Guests We live in the adjacent house and both work in our shop, the only one on the Island also next door.
