Pippin is located in a pretty spot at the top of the gently sloping 4 acre mature apple orchard, nestled under the shade of a beautiful old oak tree, with delightful views of the orchard and surrounding fields. Pippin measures 18ft in diameter, large enough to comfortably sleep up to four people, with room for a fifth (child only) if required. The internal wood frames are comprised of a mixture of ash and hazel and the beautiful stable doors are made from douglas fir and oak – all sustainably sourced from nearby woodlands. Pippin is furnished to a high standard, as are all our yurts – providing such a comfortable and cosy living space that you may not want to ever leave!
Pippin comes fully equipped with everything you need so that all you have to bring is yourselves and some food and drink!

Due to the natural setting of our yurts, people with mobility difficulties and wheelchair users will find that access on the uneven and unpaved terrain is not possible. However, please do contact us for any mobility queries you may have.
