Why we've chosen Somerset Yurts:

Pack your backpack and jump on your bike and head by train to Taunton, from there cycle the few remaining miles to the Somerset Yurts. If you haven't got your bike, let them know on booking and they can come and fetch you. The low environmental impact and sustainable nature of Somerset Yurts offers a great green getaway in a beautiful part of England, easily accessible from London, the South and the Midlands. The yurts are located in a south-facing field overlooking Taunton Vale and the Blackdown Hills beyond. If you want to explore the area, there’s plenty to see and do nearby; including exploring Hestercombe Gardens and the Quantock Hills; and further afield there's attractions to suit almost any taste from tranquil pretty village pubs to guided adventure activities. All yurts (complete with double bed, futon and woodburning stove) stand on private decks near to which you’ll find your own picnic area, barbeque, and the communal fire pit.
