Yurt in Ceredigion, Wales: Embrace a slower pace of life at this enchanting retreat, situated in the rural Welsh countryside, hidden amongst magical trees and surrounded by lush greenery.


Gorse Yurt pays respect to a traditional style of glamping, one where you wade through the trees to reach your secluded paradise and forage for goods to later be enjoyed under the stars.This quirky haven is complete with all the necessities for a relaxing, comfortable retreat back to nature. From its gorgeous soft furnishings to warming wood-burner to keep you nice and snug on those cooler evenings. By day, the Toono window allows natural light to illuminate the space with ease. If this wasn’t enough, you have an abundance of Welsh gems just waiting to be discovered right on your doorstep.

Your stay at Gorse Yurt will begin by wandering through the enchanting woodland that surrounds it, walking up the steps to reach the place you’ll call home for a little while. You will instantly fall in love with its thoughtful design and lovely furnishings. The warm, calm aura of the yurt is infectious. It is light and spacious, the perfect escape for couples or young families. The sumptuous double bed takes centre stage, there is also a comfy sofa bed, if you have a little one with you. Fond family memories will be made as you stargaze through the traditional Toono window above. The charming compact kitchen area reminds us of the earlier days of glamping, it is complete with a two ring gas hob with a kettle and a water container for drinking water. See what delicious meals you can rustle up and enjoy around the wooden dining table and chairs. If the weather is in your favour, head out onto the decking area and dine al fresco!

There is plenty of gorgeous outside space for you to enjoy, with lots of peaceful spots to sit and soak in the tranquillity this location has to offer. Your beloved pooch is more than welcome to join you!. The raised decking area is simply idyllic, the perfect place to see what species of wonderful wildlife you can spot or listen to the birds sing their morning song. The awning provides plenty of shade (or shelter from the rain!) should you wish to sit back and get lost in a new book. Grab some fresh local produce and cook over the rustic barbecue as the sun dips behind the trees, then settle in for a magical starlit evening. The owners can provide locally sourced charcoal for the barbecue and there will be a starter pack of logs available for your use.

A short distance from the yurt, you will find the gorgeous shepherd’s hut and separate outhouse. These facilities are shared with another hideaway on site, Rowan Yurt (5184). You will have your own private allocated shower within the shepherd’s hut and a shared Belfast sink. The shared kitchen area is spacious and superbly equipped with everything you’ll need during your stay. Including a gas oven, kettle, electric power points and your own fridge. There is even a cute dining area and warming wood-burner to keep you toasty throughout the seasons. If you are looking to holiday with friends or another couple, these yurts are the perfect solution. However, you are assured privacy, with your own secluded areas to enjoy. You will also have your own off-grid toilet with a compost loo, just a few steps away from the yurt.


The toilet at Gorse Yurt is off-grid, with a compost loo, this is a great sustainable alternative. The yurt itself is also off-grid, there is no TV or Wi-Fi, making it the perfect hideaway for a digital detox!
