Imagine a holiday where your children have the freedom to be children... a holiday where the night sky is so dark you can see the Milky Way and the background noise is a babbling brook and birdsong.
Live your dream at Hidden Valley Yurts
Hidden Valley Yurts is a small, family run yurt ‘glamping site’
We provide luxury eco-friendly yurt "glamping" holidays for families and groups. Glamping is a perfect get away holiday break - a chance to enjoy the simplicity of a camping holiday without having to pitch your tent . The felt lined yurts with their wood burning stoves are warm and cosy whatever the weather. A comfortable king size bed and beautifully decorated Mongolian furniture create a relaxing and luxurious (but quirky) holiday home. Hidden Valley Yurts is all about peace and quiet – no loud music, no gift shops...just the sound of the stream and the birds and occasionally a bit of mooing from the adjacent farm.

Located in the stunning countryside of the Wye Valley
Hidden Valley Yurts is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Our 80 acre valley is a stunning mix of species rich wild flower meadows, ancient woodland and coppiced hazel which provides a habitat for a wide diversity of wildlife. Deer, badgers and foxes share the land with our alpacas and Jacob sheep.
Rare butterflies, birds and insects abound and the gently babbling brook which runs through the valley (alongside the yurt field) attracts kingfishers, herons and dippers.
We have something for everyone...
As our guests you can experience a simple, eco friendly holiday at a pace that suits you. You don’t need to leave the farm – children relish the opportunity to build dens in the woods, dam the stream and adopt our Springer Spaniel for the weekend while adults can chill on the beautiful deck, cook pizzas in the wood burning oven and enjoy massage and holistic therapies in their yurt. The central campfire under skies so dark you can see the Milky Way is the perfect place to meet new friends, For those that like to see the local area, there is a wealth of activities – mountain biking, canoeing, horse riding and climbing are all within easy access. For keen walkers, footpaths cross the farm leading to all this stunning area offers – Tintern Abbey, the Wye Valley walk. For hill climbers the Black Mountains are just 20 minutes drive away.
Green Tourism... the new black!
We are passionate about sustainability... but that doesn’t mean we expect you to suffer for our beliefs...its your holiday and we are happy to look after our bit of the planet, while you relax and enjoy it. Behind the scenes we are working hard to be as environmentally sustainable as we can – all the wood that built the decks and buildings was grown and milled on our farm. The off cuts are burnt in the wood burning stove and even the sawdust is used in the compost loos. The water is heated by solar – but there is electric back up on cloudy days. We have our own spring water, green reed bed drainage and we run our farm under a scheme called Tir Gofal (Care of the Land). The buzzing of the bees and the singing of the birds confirms we are on the right path.
We'd love to share it with you...
