"Fantastic introduction to glamping!! Going camping will never be the same again. The yurt is beautiful, comfortable and is warm when the fire is lit. All the kids loved it, especially the camp fire, would love to come back soon."

"Super camping, thought of everything for us! We enjoyed every minute - being our first camping trip, it is definitely glamping for us!"

"An incredible first experience staying in a yurt. The location was perfect, the yurt was beautiful so cosy and romantic. Enjoyed having a fire going and outdoor cooking. Back to basics has been bliss. And to top it off we got ENGAGED! This will be a memory we will treasure forever and we will be back in the future. What a way to make memories! "

The yurts themselves are nestled in trees on the edge of Sopley Lake. Backed on to by a meadow and stream, lined with wild flowers during the summer months. The lake is abundant with wild fowl and fish (fishing is available from May), and other visitors to Sopley Lake yurts include a barn owl and roe and fallow deer.

We have four sites available with a total of five yurts, each site has it's own private facilities including campfire, bathroom with eco-loo and hot shower, and fully equipped sheltered cooking station. The yurts have been individually decorated by our interior designer, each yurt is unique and filled with furnishings from the Far East, North Africa and the Middle East. All you have to bring is personal items. We provide towels and bedding, tableware and kitchenware, and can even stock your fridge with food for the BBQ from the local farm shop for your arrival. Sopley Farm at the entrance also sells seasonal fruit and veg picked from the surrounding fields. Logs are available on site. We are also dog friendly!
