Somerset Yurts is run by husband and wife team, Mark and Emma Cavill along with our two young boys, Will and Tommy. Having spent 10 years in hectic corporate life around the Thames Valley, we decided the time was right to move back to Mark’s family farm and settle down in our beloved West Country. Spending many weekends traveling back and forth from Somerset to Berkshire, while we were still working, we really grew to appreciate the slower pace in Somerset, the countryside, big skies, and peace that the farm provided. We started hatching plans to share this slice of rural tranquillity with people looking for a break from their daily stresses; and knew that yurts, combined with the beautiful Somerset countryside, would provide a really unique ‘glamping’ experience, so Somerset Yurts was born!
Our farm is a dairy farm, with around 120 cows over 300 acres. We love showing guests around our farm, introducing our cows and calves, and showing the milking process. Children particularly love this, and it’s great to see them getting a grasp of where their milk, cheese, butter, cream and yoghurt comes from.
You will find your yurt nestled in a beautiful, peaceful field that boasts stunning, uninterrupted views over Taunton Vale and the Blackdown Hills beyond. In such serene surroundings you’ll soon unwind and find yourself immersed in the countryside.
Our four yurts are all luxuriously furnished with a double bed, double futon, dining table, throws, rugs, and a wood burner to keep you cosy and warm during your stay. You'll also find a BBQ and gas stove in your private picnic area, or you could opt for campfire cooking over the communal fire pit.
The Dutch Barn is the unsung hero of Somerset Yurts. Home to a spacious and fully equipped communal kitchen/dining area, and a large bathroom with proper flushing loo’s and hot power showers – the perfect partner to your lovely yurt!
