Indian inspired yurt with annexe set between the yachting town of Cowes and Newport, the capital. Buses every 10 minutes from stops that are 3 minutes away. Half a mile to the beautiful Parkhurst forest, a haven for walkers. The County Showground that hosts various events and the Military Museum are close by as is the cycle track which runs parallel to the river. There is bike hire near the Red Jet. Stunning views and sunrises viewed from the yurt garden. Ideal for couples and solo adventurers.
Cosy yet spacious insulated yurt with surround sound for mp3/ smartphone/tablet. There are tea/coffee making facilities, toaster and fridge. You are welcome to use our microwave in the lobby of the main house. The annexe opposite the yurt is a great place to sit and have breakfast or just to chill out. We have various visitors to the garden such as butterflies, blackbirds, wrens and if its a warm day you may spy a pair of buzzards circling above. A breakfast basket is served to your door each morning and homemade cake will welcome you on arrival.
The yurt and annexe are solely for our guests. Our ducks (and dog!) are free range but are very friendly and share the garden with you. The toilet is situated through the garden in the lobby and has a basin with hot/cold running water. You are very welcome to use the shower room in the main house (just ask). Parking is off road in our driveway.
Interaction with guests
I'm usually around if you need anything or want to know about the surrounding area or the island in general
Other things to note
Although there is electric in the yurt water needs to be collected from the outside tap at the top of the garden. 2 large, filled containers will be left for your arrival and you may not need to refill them depending on length of stay. The garden is lit by fairy lights and sensor lights but please use a torch at night if going up to the lobby as the ground is a little uneven.
No smoking in yurt or summerhouse please.
No barbecues or naked flames such as candles or nite lights, this includes inside the yurt and summerhouse. (Insurance regs).
No pets due to the ducks
No loud music at night.
Due to insurance rules only those booked are allowed on the premises
Please take care in the garden due to uneven ground and always use the torch provided at night outside
PLEASE KEEP MAIN GATE LOCKED BECAUSE OF PETS
