"How lucky am I to be bought here for my birthday. A wonderful surprise, I absolutely loved it - posh camping. A very lovely chilled out time with my boys in such a great and unique setting. We loved the yurt and how everything you need really is here. The camp fire was brilliant even if the dog wasn't so sure and the yurt was lovely and cosy especially at night. Would love to come again - thank you!!"

New for 2015! The Maharaja's Yurt. Heavily influenced by the fabrics and furnishings of India and particularly around Rajasthan, our interior designer has been working on this new yurt for the last six months. We are very excited! Book a stay in The Maharaja's Yurt.

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!

Whether you are after a romantic weekend (see our Love Yurt), getting away with the kids, or looking to experience glamping in the UK, Sopley Lake Yurt Camp will surpass your expectations. We also cater of the quieter yurt hen party. We have increased our capacity for 2015 to 24 persons.
