Dragon Yurt II
The Maharaja's Yurt is our brand new offering for 2015. Our interior designer Helene is putting together the interior with a mixture of Middle East, Asia and the Far East - but the strongest influence yet will be from India. Did you know the Mughal Empire that ruled over most of India until the Raj was created by a direct descend of Genghis Khan, hence the connection (Mughal/Mongol).
The Maharaja's Yurt will come with one double bed and two single floor mattresses and is equipped with a wood burner. The main circular rug is currently being hand made from felt in Kochkor, Kyrgyzstan using traditional methods. All the woodwork is hand painted and decorated. No nails, no screws, just horse hair string where required. Facilities include fully equipped (and we mean fully) cooking station with BBQ, double gas ring, warming oven, sink), camp fire, your own private hot shower and eco loo. Well insulated, the yurt quickly becomes warm and cozy in the wildest of weathers.
This sized yurt has proved very popular for couples and small families, providing an affordable option for a luxury yurt holiday.
The view from the yurt overlooks Sopley Lake, teeming with wild fowl and fish. You are shrouded by trees and behind the yurt is a meadow and stream. Sit around the camp fire under the stars, or cuddle up in our cozy yurt by the wood burner.
