Stayed here for a week, to try glamping. It's still camping! Setting unique, so peaceful and secluded. Surrounding area fabulous. When yurt was new it would have been spectacular, but aside from creepy crawlies (it's on a lake, in a forest, so we expected those!), there were other areas which let it down. Spot cleaning excellent, lovely clean bedding and towels, loads of hot water. But place looks tired and run down, chipped paint on radiator, plus lots of dust, a patch of mushrooms growing inside yurt, dusty drawers under bed (only clothes storage area so we lived out of our suitcase), bathroom damp with lots of mouldy paint around skirting. Kitchen sink sealant peeling, a dead woodlouse in bathroom cabinet which was noted on a review last month, alongside an empty can, so this has not been cleaned for some time. Small details, easily rectified which have been overlooked and which spoilt it for me. With a little more care and attention thus could be a wonderful place again. Sykes have chosen not to publish my review to date which was similar to this, and I have tried unsuccessfully to contact them. I believe it to be a fair assessment, I am fussy about details!
Decided to do something a little different for our anniversary this year. And so glad we did what a great getaway very secluded and private our yurt was clean and tidy. A large comfortable bed large bath tub and a well stocked kitchen. The under floor heating was Brilliant. The hot tub was beautifully hot and after a day out walking we chilled in it. The sauna was a great way to relax aching muscles. Even in December the yurt was in a sheltered area that meant we spent time outside having bbqs feeding swans ducks and geese. The owners we met at the start were very helpful and showed us around and how to work things. Would highly recommend for anyone who wants a getaway to relax. Some beautiful walks and places to visit
We absolutely loved staying at this yurt.. The outside area was a little tired but that's living outside! It just added to the rustic charm of the place. We had a fantastic week, we spent so much time watching the wildlife and making friends with the ducks and geese (especially Wonky with the dodgy wings who ended up feeding from our hands). I still miss the early wake up call tapping on the yurt door! The sauna and hot tub are perfect for relaxing and we BBQ'd 5 nights out of the 7. So peaceful, so beautiful and we have already booked to come back next year :)

Our 4th visit to this lovley comfortable yurt and definetly not our last the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings cannot be beaten and the view from the deck is amazing the owners are really friendly and helpful Thank you for letting us share your delightful yurt x
We had the most amazing week here, completely private and secluded making it the ideal getaway when you need to unwind and relax.. We made good use of the facilities, especially the hot tub! It was just perfect and exactly what we were after. We can't wait to go back.
The yurt was fab, really enjoyed our holiday.. Waking up to the lake view and the wildlife was a setting like no other.
Will definitely book again
There is no better place for unwinding and getting away from it all in beautiful surroundings and watching nature.. Absolutely fantastic !!!
Would recommend it’s the only place ever stayed and not met a sole unles we .... Would recommend it’s the only place ever stayed and not met a sole unles we went into town so secluded and very private
My partner and I really loved this holiday.. It was so peaceful and there was so much to do around. The setting was absolutely incredible and it was very relaxing. The yurt was lovely and warm and cosy. The surrounding towns were beautiful and very dog friendly!
It does however look quite tired and it could do with some work doing on it. The hot tub was very old and the bubbles barely worked and the sauna never got that hot. However, these were small things compared to the overall experience, hence the high rating. Overall a lovely experience and I would recommend!
The sheer peace and quiet and being surrounded by nature yet only a 15 minute walk to a really good pub
We were so impressed with Lake view Yurt that we are going to make another booking for next year on the same lake , but try one of the other Yurts only because we were a little too close to some badger sets and did not want our little Jack Russel to get into trouble.. All in all it was a fantastic holiday and we cant wait for our next visit.
I can see why people put so many good things about this secret place it’s very magical and me and my wife loved every minute of it..
Absolutely brilliant idyllic and peaceful.. Loved the sauna, hotub, the private lake for hubbys fishing. Had a fantastic holiday there would definately recommend it.
Location, literally on the lake, and the abundance of wildlife was incredible.. The complete privacy was an unexpected bonus. The yurt itself was probably hi-spec when it was first put up but is now a bit tired and in need of sprucing up. That said we will definitely stay again as this was one of the most relaxing holidays we’ve ever had.
Our second visit ididnt thinking could be beaten but I was wrong it was even better the weather helped it was hot all week but the peace and quite it was fantastic fishing was good went out in the boat every day it was what dreams are made of we will be back
Although are stay in the yurt was extremely relaxing, with the views being fantastic, the outside sitting are is in desperate need of tidying up.. The outside seating was very shabby with some of it being broken. When we arrived we were told that the Sauna was not working, which was a little disappointing as we were really looking forward to using it
This is the fourth time we've been to the yurts and each time although a little different they have been the best holidays ever.. ....we are definately going to return
Seclusion and facilities.. Would be great if price could reflect number of days (we stayed 3 nights but paid for a week, might be reasonable for high season, but for the end of October...).
All of it it was fantastic peaceful clean comfortable hot tube and sauna was great fishing was good too
THE most relaxing holiday ever..
There is only one word for this place and that is AMAZING :) booked this for my fiance's birthday we did not know what to expect as we have never stayed in a yurt before, but omg was we blown away!! From the yurt to the surrounding area and the wildlife, it's just the most perfect place for you to relax, unwind and recharge your battery's. My fiance was in his element, fishing and out on the private boat, also the private hot tub and sauna make it that extra special, the underfloor heating made the yurt so warm and cosy and had the most comfortable bed, we enjoyed our 3 night stay here and will definitely be back:)
We liked the overall feeling of being totally alone and buried in beautiful surroundings. It was so peaceful and with daily visitors from our duck families. We had a few days with rain but didn't spoil the experience. Didn't expect the yurt to be so big, then the extra outdoor part just makes it plenty. We used the rowing boat at least once a day to visit all the wonderful hidden pockets around the lake. Lovely people that own the yurts too!
The whole thing was brilliant, the owners were lovely, the boat was lots of fun, the hot tub was amazing and we loved the pizza oven in the chimney.
This is a really nice place to stay. It is in a wonderful location and the outside is done really well. The owners have made it comfy. It is a great place to relax and the wildlife is lovely to watch.
Myself and my girlfriend booked Lakeview-Yurt and oh my what a absolute pleasure I highly recommend this Yurt... The hot tub is so nice,, the sauna is a great temperature and we burnt the chimenia all weekend... The Beckford Inn is superb for food.... The projector is a nice touch as is the bath next to the bed.....
Our weekend break was fantastic at Lakeview Yurt; it was so relaxing!
So peaceful and relaxing. They really have thought of everything and have gone the extra mile to make this little place spectacular. We loved it and will be back!
We loved this holiday, it was so secluded, idyllic and away from it all, waking up to the lake and surrounding greenery, in particular the wildlife on the lake. We also had use of the owners rowing boat, parked right outside our Yurt and we went for a Yurt that had its own hot tub and sauna. This was better than we imagined and we would do it again. Being able to fish in the lake whenever you want is also a great plus.
Great location with fishing, nice walks and peaceful surroundings.
We liked being away from all the hustle and bustle but still surrounded by home comforts. The hot tub was just divine to relax in with views of the lake. The local birds were so friendly and the rowing boat was romantic. The home cinema inside the Yurt was such fun too. All in all we couldn't have wanted for more!
We had a warm welcome from the owner, the location of Lakeview Yurt was perfect, very warm and cosy. The views and peaceful setting was one of the best things, with lots of different wildlife around! The outdoor chiminea was nice of an evening (especially for toasting marshmallows)! The hot tub is always a nice bonus too! Overall was a nice relaxing break away!
We loved the quirkiness of the Lakeview Yurt, a wonderful experience that we would recommend to anyone!
This was the most relaxing holiday we have had in a long time. The Yurt was great and the area is beautiful - so peaceful and relaxing. The lake is fabulous as are the geese, ducks and swans. Loved every minute of it.
Very peaceful and private, underfloor heating was brilliant and the location was beautiful. Very friendly welcome given by the owner! The private hot tub was a delight on cold evenings and the lake was busy with wildlife and looked stunning.
It was the position of the Yurt. The quietness, lots of different wildlife and the fact you are more or less totally isolated in the most beautiful of surroundings. Hot tub and Sauna for your own private use was an added bonus. We loved it!
Exactly as it was described - a perfect secluded retreat with everything that we could want, all supplied.
Fantastic lakeside location secluded and peaceful. Enjoyed a row on the lake followed by relaxing in the hot tub even in the cold of november and then supper sat outside cooked in the chiminea oven with a glass of wine. Couldn't get any better. We loved it.
The Yurt was fantastic - so relaxing and such a unique experience. We used the hot tub everyday and even cooked pizza and baked potatoes on the chiminea!
We loved staying in the Yurt, the bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was lovely and just the right size for two, it was nice to have a dishwasher. There is now an indoor toilet and the bath was huge. The under floor heating soon had the whole Yurt cosy and warm. We spent our evenings in the hot tub and sauna, it was lovely to lay back and look up at the stars. We will be booking again.
Peaceful and quiet in a secluded location but lots of places to visit easily reached. Able to relax and enjoy the hot tub sauna, and the lakeside. The extra comfy bed made sleeping so easy. No TV or internet made relaxing even easier, listened to lots of music instead.
Peace and quiet; pheasants on the decking and a visiting kingfisher. A wonderful setting.Toasting marshmallows in the fire pit and sitting in the hot tub after a days walking. We will definitely go back.
My husband and I had one of the best week's holiday ever at Lakeview Yurt. The beautiful setting and peaceful surroundings were a big bonus. We loved the lake and the wildfowl, made lots of new friends with ducks, swans, geese and especially two baby Moorhens! The accommodation was ideal, spacious, classy and had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! The owners were lovely and made us very welcome. Can't fault it, and we will certainly book Lakeside Yurt again in the very near future.
The yurt had everything that you could think of in it. It was an amazing place; quiet and relaxing. We loved it and would go back. A dream romantic getaway.
Myself and my wife of 2 days decided to spend our 'Mini moon' at the yurt and absolutely loved it! Hidden away and perfectly secluded it gave us exactly what we were looking for after a busy couple of months leading up to the wedding.
Admittedly from the outside when you arrive (and we arrived in pouring rain) you could be a little put off but once you step through the door you couldn't be in a more welcoming and homely place. Everything inside was clean and modern and the underfloor heating and stove were added bonuses.
Even during a fairly miserable week in October we managed to be out in the brilliant hot tub at least twice a day and made use of the pizza oven and electric grill plate on the veranda which overlooked the lake. We even managed to jump in the little rowing boat and enjoy a late afternoon row across with the three resident geese in tow!
The position of the yurt makes it perfect to explore the local area and we spent a day at the races in Cheltenham and saw all sorts of other sites. The local pub in Beckford is reasonable but for a really great pub meal jump in the car and head to the Royal Oak in Gretton. Fortunately we discovered this place early on in the week and returned several times.
If you can manage to get in to the Lakeview Yurt then you won't be dissappointed. The guy who built the first 2 yurts was in the process of building a third which now appears to be open.
This is the last night of our 3 night stay. We have been blown away, the yurt and location is perfect. We met the owner who was very friendly, we followed him to the yurt and he showed us around, an indoor toilet has been added 2 weeks ago which is good, there is also a new Japanese BBQ which we used a lot. We cannot fault anything, the bed is most comfortable we have ever slept in and the bath is gorgeous. The local pub The Beckford Inn does amazing food. Sitting out on the decking overlooking the lake with a glass of wine and the chimenea burning has been the most peaceful thing I've ever done. We have adopted lots of duck and swan friends, bring a lot of bread :) There is a visitors book in the yurt filled with amazing reviews so not sure why people haven't also done TripAdvisor reviews. We are sad to go home tomorrow, it's been the most relaxing 3 days of our lives. Enjoy xx
The location is superb,hot tub and sauna lovely. Total seclusion and no interruption, plenty of wildlife to feed and watch.
Totally relaxing seclusion from the busy world and escapism into wonderful yurt world! This is our third visit to the the owners retreats and each time it is indeed a treat! The lake is just outstandingly beautiful to wake up to each morning and can be enjoyed from the hot tub too! The geese, the ducks and the excellent fishing make this a truly back to nature experience, but perfectly complimented by modern luxury.
Love the Yurt. It's a great original idea and alternative to camping. The scenery from the yurt is beautiful and the facilities make it; the hot tub is great. Love the chiminea and watching the stars at night. The wildlife were great to watch and feed. The chicks are very cute and fluffy. It's a great place to chill out relax and watch the world go by.
Loved the isolated spot, the privacy, the interior of the Yurt - it looks amazing and is bigger than expected! Underfloor heating and attention to detail with quality furnishings. Bed and bedding were lovely, good roll-top bath, bioethanol fire and steam oven. Hidden away from the rest of the world, enjoyed the long, lazy days doing nothing!
Loved this! Lakeview Yurt was beautiful and had a beautiful view. Owners very helpful.
Liked everything about the Yurt. The peace and quiet was great to re-charge the batteries. The hot tub and sauna were amazing.
The yurt is located on the far edge of a lake. No passers by, no other buildings visible. It is so peaceful we were able to completely unwind. The decking outside the yurt overhangs the lake and we were able to sit out in the evening next to the chiminea listening to music, sipping some wine, bliss! The yurt is well equipped, with a very comfortable bed and roll top bath next to the bed! We loved the hot tub and used it every day. Close to Cheltenham, steam railway at Toddington, great retro cinema in Evesham. We would certainly re-book! The owner was very friendly.
It was the most relaxing holiday I have ever come across. The location was to die for
It was peaceful, quiet, beautiful, private and extremely relaxing. The hot tub, own private boat were great.
Also plenty of things to do locally like bike rides, Go Ape. Such wonderful surroundings.
The location is wonderful; so relaxing and the Yurt is awesome!
We loved everything about the Yurt, fantastic surroundings, comfortable bed and ace hot tub, sauna and bath. It was everything you'd need for the most romantic getaway ever.
Position and the layout of the property were perfect. The facilities were spot on and the jacuzzi and sauna really made it special!
The owners were so friendly and it had everything we needed to make it a home from home. We would definitely return again.
The perfect setting of pure seclusion and the amazing view over the lake and hills. The sheer touch of luxury of the yurt, the hot tub, the sauna. All exceeding our hopes or expectations. The perfect romantic getaway from it all!
WOW what an amazing place! The tranquil setting is stunning with picturesque views over the lake and the yurt is just beautiful- the owners have gone that extra mile to make sure it's comfortable and well appointed. Loved every second of it. This holiday will take some beating !!
Away from it all in the most beautiful of settings and yet just 5 minutes walk to the village. The Yurt is lovely,clean, warm well equipped and the view across the lake amazing. The solitude made it the most restful time of my life. Loved the sauna and lazing in the hot tub, just being able to do exactly what I wanted with no-one else around was wonderful. Lots of local facilities when needed but a complete get away from it all heaven.
A weekend at this wonderful oasis was a surprise from my partner for my 30th birthday and I can honestly say it was nothing short of amazing!
This place is a hidden gem, private and in a stunning setting. Located just beside a lake off the beaten track it is the perfect getaway for a romantic weekend.
A private hot tub means great nights under the stars (don't forget your champagne) and the candles around the edge are a nice touch. The private sauna looks across the lake and you can dine al fresco in the morning with a heated table to sit at.
The owner was very friendly and helpful and obviously cares a great deal about the property and the environment using a compostable toilet which is a lovely feature.
There's not much around the area unless you have a car but it is perfect for leisurely drives around The Cotswolds and is 20 minutes to Bourton on the Water which is worth a visit (with afternoon tea highly recommended). The Gardeners Arms in nearby Alderton does a lovely quiet meal and nice local ales.
Will definitely have to visit again sometime for romantic relaxation!!
Location superb, fantastic outside facilities. Overlooking beautiful lake. Hot tub fantastic. So beautiful and mostly peaceful, totally relaxing escape.
This holiday was superb and was truly better than expected. We wanted an escape and got exactly that with luxury that was unexpected. Peace, tranquillity, seclusion and privacy; perfectly apportioned accommodation, extremely comfortable, well considered and everything catered for.
Lakeview Yurt is the most peaceful, tranquil amazing place I have ever stayed. The owners have taken their time to find the best spot on the edge of a beautiful fishing lake with fantastic views. The Yurt itself is well thought out with everything you need. The best part for us was being in the hot tub on a clear starry night listening to the wildlife, you couldn't ask for anything better. We will be back again!
Beautiful setting of the simple yet luxurious Yurt. The isolated position, the sauna and hot tub made for the most relaxing time I've ever experienced.
Simply brilliant! We will be staying again, what a find. Must be the best Yurt in the UK. Superb seclusion and a stunning location. The facilities are spot on, the hosts are lovely and helpful.
Something completely different! The owners have thought of everything and all the little touches really made the holiday extra special! The yurt is completely secluded, perfect!
We stayed here for 3 nights, just to have a short break and chill out. And it did not dissapoint.
The yurt was perfect, as was the location. The facilities were fabulous especially the hot tub and the sauna.
As hard as it was to wake up from the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in, the views we did wake up to were spectacular.
We had an amazing time. We will be back and will be recommending it to all of our friends.
