From Woodland to Yurt

Our yurts are made using top quality timber selected from local woodlands

  • These woods are managed primarily for nature conservation.
  • We aim to make our yurts as environmentally sustainable as possible.
  • We use prime quality kiln-dried oak from Southern England for our tonos.
  • Quality takes time. After the timber is cut we season it for many months until it reaches just the right water content for steam bending. Once bent it is seasoned for a further three months. Typically from cutting the wood to finished yurt takes well over a year.
