Our Plans for 2022
We've been running the yurts for 11 years now, during which time we've met (and made friends with!) a wonderful range of people - couples, singletons, families, cyclists, walkers, students, ages ranging from 6 week old babies to those in their 80s, every one filled with an enthusiasm for our lovely Suffolk countryside and our own little bit of meadow heaven. It's been a wonderful experience for us but nonetheless we're beginning to feel the strains of putting up and taking down yurts each year and so the time has come to make some changes. At the end of this season we'll be waving a fond farewell to the yurts and are planning to convert the barn into a self-contained holiday let; we're aiming to capture the "spirit of the yurts" within the conversion and of course will continue to celebrate the great outdoors with campfire pits, pizza ovens, woodland showers and starry nights! A lovely local builder will be doing the work and you'll find some photos on our blog of the pergola he created for us from driftwood, which hopefully will give you a flavour of what's to come...
The barns has two double bedrooms (both en-suite), a bedroom with one single bed and a set of bunk beds (with adjacent bathroom with bath) as well as two travel cots and will be open for spring 2022. We owe each and every one of you a huge Thank You for supporting us over the years, we've really enjoyed being the "yurt people" and are looking forward to our new venture (the "funky barn people"?) and will very much hope to be welcoming you back.
Excitingly, we are delighted to have received support from the East Suffolk Council Plan for the Future Grant Scheme, which will enable us to install electric vehicle charging, supply electric bikes for you to borrow, as well as a bank of solar pv panels, to ensure a holiday with a minimal carbon footprint! All continuing in the ethos you will have enjoyed whilst staying in the yurts.
