Spend a magical glamping holiday in our Shropshire-made Mongolian yurts. Perfect for a romantic weekend break or a fun family holiday for up to 6 people.  You have a wonderful secluded spot, offering total privacy as we only offer the one unit so you have no neighbours (other than our livestock and the abundant wildlife!)  If you are looking for accommodation for a larger group of up to 12, we are offering private hire of our Straw Lodge in the Autumn of 2020 – contact us for more details!

Nestled in their own private slice of our organic farm, our yurts bring you closer to the beautiful Shropshire countryside. The unique design of our two interconnected yurts provides shelter from the elements with a relaxing, cosy atmosphere.

What’s inside the yurts?

Our yurts are fully equipped for the best glamping experience. Inside one of the yurts is everything you will need for a cosy night’s sleep. There is a comfy double bed and set of bunkbeds. In the other connected yurt is a living area, complete with dining area, seating, large sink and a woodburner.

Just outside on the decked area, you’ll find a gas barbecue, gas hob and gas powered fridge. The outside bathroom contains a compost loo and camping shower. If you’d prefer an electric shower, this is available at certain times of day in the main building.

At the right time of year there is also an edible garden including marigolds, mint, gooseberries and damson trees. Meaning you won’t have to go far for that quick snack.

Things to do during your stay

You will be left to your own devices during your stay, and are free to explore our picturesque organic farm. We have farm trails weaving around the farm, which will take you around our pastures, woodland and along the river. Why not say hello to some of our friendly animals as you explore?

Our organic Farm Shop is a short walk away, where you can purchase delicious local produce to prepare in the yurts. We can also provide you with a hamper of your favourite goodies to make your stay stress and decision free – just let us know when you book.

Our yurts are designed to help you reconnect with nature, your loved ones and yourself. They are well and truly off-grid. For this reason we have no Wi-Fi facilities at the yurts. There are electricity sockets available for use at the farm in the main building, but with the Shropshire Hills as your playground, this is the perfect place to switch off!

The nature of our yurt and surroundings lends itself perfectly to families that home educate, there are so many new experiences you can enjoy with your children whilst they learn about the natural world first hand.

Want to know more about our history and what makes Fordhall special? Well, it is quite a story. Most of which can be summarised by this article in the Telegraph written in 2006 only weeks before Fordhall Farm was saved from development and placed into community-ownership
