Chestnut Yurt is our most cosy space. Chestnut faces onto spectacular ancient woodland, with a charming view from the lozenge shaped window. The yurt and its adjacent safari kitchen are under an old chestnut tree, hence the name! Arrival in October will guarantee a harvest of nuts from the tree to roast on your fire bowl…
Chestnut Yurt is generously distanced from the other 2 yurts on the South site (Redwood and Birch Yurts). With the safari kitchen area not facing either of them, the feeling is entirely private.
In the safari kitchen there’s running water, a 2 burner gas hob, all the necessary cooking implements, fire bowl, small Weber bbq, storm kettle – and supply of campfire wood for your fire bowl.
Get refreshed inside a spiral enclosure made of split chestnut from Adhurst. It’s tucked away in the chestnut coppice behind your yurt and is completely unique.
Your privy (or earth closet) is set slightly apart from the yurt, but if you prefer a flushing toilet there’s one at the rear of the black barns by the car park.
Inside the yurt are solar fairy lights, a wood burner with a supply of logs – from the woods – for your log burner. There’s a supremely comfy iron bedstead but if slumbering under the trees is your thing, try the hammock – suspended between 2 old trees beside your private safari kitchen.
From our own experience with Chestnut yurt and its safari kitchen, this one always comes out as the favourite for couples and also for solo guests. Or, if you’re in a glamping group, it also works well with its 2 neighbours, Redwood and Birch yurts.
