Get away from it all in our magical yurts

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 for community groups and workshops/retreats – contact us for more details!

About your destination: 

Shropshire was recently named as one of ABTA’s 10 Destinations to Watch in 2024.  This idyllic English county on the Welsh borders has some of the country’s most beautiful landscapes, towns and villages. Shropshire is not only a rural gem, it was also the birthplace of the industrial revolution so there is a lot to explore in the county from your eco-friendly base here at Fordhall.  Find out more here.

About your accommodation: 

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.

Don’t believe us? See if for your self

Outdoor living

Our yurts feature a handcrafted outdoor oak frame with larch roof to offer more sheltered space. Providing shade in the summer and cover from the elements so you can sit outside in the fresh air whatever the British weather brings.

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 wood burner. There is also a double futon.

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 yurts 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
