Welcome to chiltern yurts
Nestled at the foot of the Chiltern Hills in a treelined amphitheatre lies the small boutique glamping meadow of Chiltern Yurts.
Our luxurious and enchantingly authentic Mongolian yurts are ideal for a country retreat to relax and unwind in an idyllic setting. Go to sleep beneath the stars peeping over the ‘crown’ skylight and wake up to a tranquil oasis of nature and birdsong.
Surrounded by beautiful rural countryside, including miles of tucked away footpaths alongside the Grand Union Canal and Tring Reservoirs, ideal for walking and cycling, and abounding with wildlife.
Only 35 miles from London, escape from the city for a long weekend, or stay a while longer to fully savour the delights of the countryside.
About the Yurts
Our unique and spacious yurts are entirely hand made and imported directly from Mongolia. Authentically designed and crafted, with colourful hand decorated woodwork, the cosy interiors are rustic and comfortable. The felt linings offer a truly luxurious experience. What really distinguishes an authentic yurt from other canvas structures is the stunning crown wheel at the centre of the roof and the solid wooden door instead of a zip!
Each yurt is self-contained, offering a private loo and shower hut, and its own cooking facilities including a BBQ and fire pit. Our guests are assured plenty of privacy and space to enjoy.
You'll have the opportunity to sleep in one of two spectacular yurts, click below to find out more about your stay.
Glamping is for everyone of all ages who want to spend time outdoors and breathe the fresh air with all the benefits of home comforts.
All you have to do is bring yourself and be ready to enjoy nature and the outdoor living. Our guests’ comfort and privacy is really important to us, and we hope we can offer you a relaxing and memorable break.
We want everything to be as easy as possible for you during your stay, so along with a warm welcome, everything you need will be ready and waiting for you on arrival.
Situated on the edge of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there is so much to explore and so many places to visit.
