Our yurts were designed and created in Seattle in the shadow of Mount Rainier. The materials used within the build are superior so they are often used as full time residences in the USA.
The tall design allows for full size french doors so you don't need to stoop. The picture windows are over 2 metres wide and give you a great view as they are made of a scratch-resistant polymer but it's 30 mm thickness ensures your visibility is not distorted. Most yurts in the UK have solid doors and do not have windows but we believe natural light and a clear view are really important to your holiday experience.
Our lattice is made of the finest northwest Douglas Fir, treated with Verde Oil, making it the strongest in the industry. The yurts are designed to withinstand a minimum wind load of 95 miles per hour and can achieve snow loads of up to 280 pounds per square foot. So you can be completely confident about the strength of the structure - it's as strong as a cottage!
The fabric of the yurt is vinyl coated polyester and the internal liner is made of eagle army duck canvas. Two layers of insulation will also ensure you're cool in the sun and warm in the night or in seasonal weather.
Above you are beautifully crafted Douglas Fir rafters leading to the central compression ring with the clear dome to the sky. Perfect for viewing the stars!
