Somerset Yurts , Hill Farm, West Monkton, TA2 8LP, Taunton
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 our site nestled over 3 beautiful, peaceful fields that boast 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.
Below you’ll find more information about the types of accomodation we have available for you.
We have 4 traditional Mongolian yurts – Cherrygrove, Moonslade, Gotton Down and Furzeclose – and one UK made one – Meadow Yurt.
The Mongolian yurts have a lovely cosy feeling to them, with multiple layers of fabric and felt to keep you warm and dry, and wonderful bright hand painted roof poles with tradition mongolian patterns.
The Yurts are about 6m across and inside you’ll find: a double bed, double futon, table and chairs, a couple of smaller side units and the woodburner. Outside there is a BBQ and picnic table. There are plenty of Prakti charcoal stoves available to freely borrow if you fancy trying a charcoal hob…we cook with one at home a lot over the summer….and a couple of back up camping gas hobs if you need the control of gas. As with all our accomodation it’s a short walk to the facilities barn which provides a regular kitchen, hot power showers and proper flushing loos.
Meadow Yurt is a slightly different design – it’s the same width approx 6m across and it has the same contents inside – double bed, futon, table / chairs side units and woodburner – but a slightly different layout and yurt design. It feels a little more open and spacious due to a different design of the roof poles and is made of a beautiful oiled cherry wood. Outside contents the same as the Mongolian Yurts – a picnic table and BBQ.
There’s a map of the site and details about the dutch barn facilities below.
