Amazing location, perfect for getaway especially in current situation.. Loved the boat, hot tub and log burner added an extra touch
Miss Barmi

We were unable to lock any of the doors at the yurt.. We rang the owners about this on the second day, but they could not fix the problem until the following day. We therefore had to sleep two nights without the property locked, so did not feel very safe/comfortable at night time

We had an absolutely fantastic time, staying in the secret island yurt and would recommend to anyone looking for and idyllic, romantic break away from the huddle and bustle of every day life.. Would definitely come again. The lake is so picturesque, a lovely way to spend a weekend.

Fantastic yurt, excellent location and very private.. Nicely furnished and the bed is extremely comfortable
Mr Greer, January 2020

Very tranquil and peaceful holiday.. Could do with cupboards in bedroom, enough room for them. Hanging hooks by hot tub would be useful for gowns. There was an unfortunate fishy smell which we could not locate, but didn't spoil things overall. We would love to return next year.

Met our expectations because this was a 2nd visit to this Yurt.. This is not a 5 star hotel type holiday it is a Yurt but you are by the side of a wonderful lake where you have privacy, peace and just the company of the ducks, swans, herons etc. The trip round the lake in your own little boat is maybe the only time you will see another person. We did not. The hot tub, barbecue and outdoor log burner are just extras to be enjoyed. You know the owners are available should you need them but they leave you to get on and enjoy your time away from the outside world.

Excellent place to stay, felt much freedom allowed to explore on the lake and completely left alone :)

Absolutely amazing retreat filled with brilliant wildlife.. 100% is a 10/10 accommodation.

Our 4th visit, 1st in this yurt,this is the best of them all in our opinion, far more space and extremely well laid out.. As previouse visits it was so peaceful and restful here which adds to the charm. Crispy and orange sauce (the ducks) are quite tame now, eating out of our hands and knocking on the glass to be fed each day. Saw lots of wildlife, Heron, Kingfisher and Moorehens. Lovely to have the use of a boat with electric motor, so quiet you can get close up to the birds without distrubing them. Definitly our favorite holiday destination - will be back next year. David (owner) is so friendly and even rescued our telescope which we left behind and is keeping it safe for us to collect next week.

The idea is great but the execution left lacking, the finish was poor and the appearance tired.. the photos looked fabulous, which is why we chose the location, but the reality left a bit to be desired. all of the paintwork requires attention, very tired looking. the windows needed cleaning, none of the remotes worked apart from the projector which had to be set up on books to enable it to be set onto the screen. the wood shavings from the air con duct were still where they dropped them after it's installation. any attention to detail seems to be a failing according to the visitors book entries. three nights was quite enough, after that, I think your clients may start complaining. I hope this helps improve future visitors experience of the secret island yurt, we wont be back. sorry. this was a, disappointing, birthday treat for my wife.

Fantastic location could not fault the views and if you want a holiday with complete privacy peace and tranquility this is for you How ever although the views and location are outstanding with it comes cobwebs insects spiders and ducks geese and other birds a plenty so if you don't like being that close to nature it won't be for you The accommodation and outside could certainly do with some maintenance and it wasn't particularly clean and did not smell very good Air conditioning leaked ,carpets and curtains filthy and smelt awful and general cleanliness not great on the inside Outside area untidy barbecue tables and chairs dirty and whole area on veranda in need of maintenance and tlc Hot tub amazing but sauna comes with cobwebs Would certainly consider going back again but would go back in a heartbeat if it was cleaner and smelt better

The setting is beautiful and the yurt is so comfortable.. We ended up feeding swans from the hot tub! Such a lovely and relaxing place to be, and the owners were super friendly and helpful. Had everything we needed and more.

The second time we have stayed at this wonderful yurt. It is a little piece of private heaven! Fantastic views and totally away from the outside world. Everything you need for a relaxing break, everything worked well, lighting, heating, kitchen. Hot tub and outside area well lit and warm. We will definitely return!!

Great place to get away from busy urban life would recommend for couples who would like to escape to the country.. Really well located with Oxford and Gloucester very close.

The Yurt was just as advertised. It was clean and inside everything was as shown in the pictures. However the outside was a bit tired and could do with a bit more TLC. Fishing was excellent, Bed so very comfortable. It had all the amenities you will need. Cooker, Induction hob, Fridge, Freezer, Dishwasher, all in good order. Wonderful Chiminea. We toasted marshmallow and sat outside long into the evening. We just listened to music and fed the very friendly duck. Hot Tub would work well for a short while, then sort of give up. Not sure about the Sauna. I would much rather a good shower instead. But you can't have everything I guess. I would go back in an instance.

This is the second time we have stayed in one of these yurts.. Would highly recommend it if you want a quiet, peaceful, private, relaxing holiday with plenty of places to visit should you wish.

This was our 3rd vist to the Yurts. The 1st in The Secreat Island this place is just grand if you want to do nothing but chill out or if you like to walk then it has some fantastic country side.The owners are very frendly and helpful i would say the only thing i think could improve this one would be a gas BQ like the secreat island yurt has but thats just me being lazy to sit in the hot tub at night rain or shine no matter just MAGIC !

It was an unbelievable experience.. Probably the most luxurious experience you can ever hope to associate with "camping." The hot tub was divine and the cinematic projector was an absolute winner!

There are a lot of positives about this beautiful place... the nature, scenery, the two gorgeous geese and black swans who followed us everywhere, in particular. However, the reason I would not rebook are to do with the night traffic. It totally spoilt a serene, calm peaceful break. On the Thursday night of our break, I was awake from midnight til 4 am trying to work out where the traffic noise was coming from... if it was motorway, low flying aircraft or some sort of train. If you take earplugs for the nights you will have a wonderful week!!!

Our holiday at the secret Island Yurt was absolutely fantastic, one of the best holidays I have ever had. It showed me the nature and beauty of England and reminded me why I still take holidays in my home country. The Yurt's facilities were amazing and the setting was true paradise, plus the owners are so welcoming and friendly and happy to give advice to us novice ramblers. I have already started planning when I can next go back; it was very hard to leave such a wonderful place.

Peaceful and quiet; the best sleep I have had in months. I love this place; it is absolute perfection. The lake, the wildlife and the yurt is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend staying here and cannot wait to return again someday. The owner is very nice and has obviously put in a lot of hard work to make this a little piece of heaven.

We loved our break at Secret Island Yurt. It was so peaceful and we were surrounded by wildlife, including the geese and swans who would greet us each morning! The hot tub was fantastic and we made use of the rowing boat on the lake, which was a unique experience. The yurt itself was very cosy, comfortable and really warm, even during the time we were there in late December and early January. There were all the amenities you'd need, delivered in a tasteful way. We plan to return in the summer and would certainly recommend to friends and family.

An absolute romantic retreat! It breaks my heart to unveil this Secret Island Yurt review as we want it all for ourselves! A perfect oasis! The Yurt is astonishingly spacious, very cosy with a nice warm touch to it and gorgeously decked out. The kitchen had everything you need, the bed was extremely comfortable, the projector was a treat to see our pictures together and the lake was magnificent. It was simply mesmerising looking out over the lake gazing at ducks, ducklings and swans. It was an overall amazing experience with someone I love, sitting under the stars in the hot tub in a dimmed light took us on a magical feel of peace and romance. Trust me you will not want to leave this fascinating fairyland! Highly recommended if you are looking for a romantic escape, we are definitely revisiting this amazing place soon.

A perfect place to escape, chill out and relax totally. You could park your car up and lock yourselves away for the week if you wished as the Yurt was equipped with all mod cons and had everything you needed - even a hot tub and sauna. There were excellent walks and wildlife to enjoy, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute we spent there. We will definitely be going again!

Our stay at Secret Island Yurt was one the most relaxing holidays I've ever had! The Yurt had everything we needed and more. The attention to detail in the décor and facilities was phenomenal. We particularly enjoyed using the hot tub and the rowing boat. The location was beautiful - our own private lake with wonderful wildlife literally on our doorstep!

We were amazed by the setting and the luxury offered by Secret Island Yurt. You really do feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, with no sounds around but the wildlife. The Yurt itself was a far cry from what you'd expect 'glamping' with a full kitchen, comfy bed, ample seating and even cinema screen and projector. Outside, the seating, sun loungers, BBQ and hot tub make for absolute relaxation. We're desperate to go back and are already looking at dates.
