Somerset Yurts is situated on Hill Farm, an arable and dairy farm in the Quantock Hills. We are around 5 miles north of Taunton, the county town of Somerset.

You will find your yurt nestled in a beautiful, peaceful field that boasts stunning, uninterrupted views over Taunton Vale and the Blackdown Hills beyond. In such serene surroundings you’ll soon unwind and find yourself immersed in the countryside.

Most Mongolian yurts in Mongolia are orange, so we had to have an orange yurt! A lovely bright yurt with a really sunny feel. We picked Furzeclose field for its name, as Furze is an old English name for Gorse, which has a golden flower, matching our golden yurt.

The Yurts are furnished with everything you’d expect, including a regular power supply, comfy double bed, double sofa bed, table and chairs, and a lovely crackling warm woodburner to keep you toasty in the evenings.

What's in the yurt?

double bed, double futon/sofa bed, wood burner & log basket, table and chairs for 4, small chest for your belongings, rechargeable lantern, bedside light, coolbox – ice packs from freezer in facilities, mirror, electric point for charging lantern/radio/phones etc. Bedding and blankets for bed and futon (bedding is £20 per bed, or you can bring your own)

Outside each Yurt is a picnic bench, BBQ, and prakti camping stove – it’s like a gas stove, but uses charcoal.

The barn provides a regular kitchen with home comforts if you don’t fancy BBQ’ing or cooking on the camping stoves provided. The barn also houses wonderful hot power showers and proper flushing toilets…this is luxury camping after all.

Picture yourself relaxing on your Yurt deck with the BBQ gently sizzling, the cows grazing in the distance and nothing but the sound of birds singing in the background.

We’re easily accessible, only about 15 minutes from J25 of the M5 (about a two and a half hour drive from London for example), with trains into Taunton from Exeter and London Paddington.

PLEASE NOTE - We have three more Mongolian yurts at our glampsite - Moonslade yurt, Gotton Down yurt, and Cherrygrove yurt. All are identically furnished, but have different colour painted doors and roof poles.
