Our Range of Yurts

Sea View Yurt

We will let the pictures do most of the talking. A yurt is a simple yet sophisticated, beautiful, and comfortable circular structure developed over millennia to help nomads survive and thrive in some of the nicest and also some of the most inhospitable areas in the world.

The yurts at the Hillfort are Mongolian Gers and unlike the steeper roofed Kyrghyz yurt style they represent elements of the Buddhist faith. With the Shape, colours, decorative stylings and ornaments of the wooden elements of the yurt influenced by the artistic style found in Buddhist monasteries of Mongolia. Such yurts are called “uyangiin ger”, literally meaning “home of melodies”.So if you feel like impersonating Ghengis Khan for a week or fancy being enchanted by the home of melodies, please enquire about booking!

 

 The Location

The Sea View Yurt is situated on a perch at the top of our campsite, giving some of the best and most effortless views of the beautiful Strumble head, also including what we believe is the best sunset in Pembrokeshire as the sun sinks into the Irish Sea. By effortless we mean that this view is attainable by taking one step out of your yurt door! If you’re feeling a little more energetic there is a rocky outcrop 50 yards to your right to give an excellent perspective of the yurt, coast, sea and skyscapes. Out to your left with a bit more of a walk is the Hillforts very own mountain which gives a complete 360 degree view of the Pembrokeshire national parks amazing coast line and a watchman view back over the campsite.

Fire Pit and Terrace

The yurt is in its own private clearing with a picnic bench and a kitchen hut complete with pots, pans, cutlery, camping stoves etc.  A fire pit with a grill top is provided for camp fire cooking. It’s the perfect spot to sit and watch the sunset.

Firewood (£6 per bag) and kindling (£4) is available, we’ll deliver it right to your door

.

Group Sizes

The yurt is 6m in diameter so there is plenty of space for a group size ranging from 4-6 people. The yurt is setup with a double bed, comfortable sofa beds and dining area. We can alter the layout and furniture to suit upon request, please feel free to contact us and we’ll see how we can help.

The Yurts Warmth and Facilities

The yurt is insulated and we have found warm enough during the summer months and  is comfortable enough at most times. We have packed a few extra blankets into the chests in front of the bed in case there is a colder than usual snap. You just bring your sleeping bags/sheets & pillows according to your needs.

A kitchen hut is provided for your self-catering requirements. With two camping gas stoves and a full range of kitchen cutlery etc. If you need anything else please ask John and he will always endeavour to help you with a whisk for fresh cream or a fish filleting knife for your freshly caught mackerel.

Hillfort Yurt

Our Hillfort yurt is situated in its own private enclave, having a large circular area of grass hidden the gorse, with enough space to park your car, have a fire, play games and relax at your private picnic bench. The yurt stands at an access point to several of the snaking footpaths that run up the small mountain behind, Garn Fechan. So we thought we’d call it Hillfort yurt as it stands guard of these trails.
