After making and selling yurts for several years we decided that making attractive, fun and cosy festival accommodation was to be our next step.  Simon one of our company directors lived in a yurt for some time. The mutual love of these structures that we shared made us decide to share the joy with others. We were called Yurts and Squrts in those days.

We struggled like many with cramped and noisy festival camping and were fed up with leaking tents and cramped camping areas. So, we decided that luxury festival accommodation was the way forward. We were sure that we weren’t alone in wanting to experience festivals but in a hassle-free and  comfortable way. Pre-erected yurts, lots of space, heightened security, cleaner toilets and  showers would make festival life so much more enjoyable. We were so right, festival boutique camping is now an integral part of festival culture.

During 2011, we created the ultimate glamping yurt, taking our concept one step further. Our 16 foot diameter yurts are the ultimate in decadence. Complete with fitted carpets, double beds, carefully sourced wooden furniture and sumptuous décor.  Designed to give our customers a spacious and luxurious stay.

In 2013, we took our luxury yurt concept a step further,  bringing you our lovely hand crafted 14 foot diameter yurts. With wooden framed window, locking door, wooden double bed, the best quality Egyptian cotton bed linen, fluffy towels and the option of adding wine coolers too!!

Then in 2014, we introduced 18 and 20 foot dorm style  for those of you who want to lodge together.

During 2015, we streamlined our packages and introduced our extravagant beauty parlour with gilt mirrors, chandelier, GHD hair straighteners, hair dryers and usb charging points.

In 2016, we introduced our new custom made mattresses to replace air beds for good.

For 2017 we will launch our lovely pop up glamping yurts at Vallum Farm.

We offer our beautiful 30 foot party /event tent which is stunning and we have our 30ft diameter wedding yurt too. Both are perfect for barefoot weddings and private gatherings. We can provide a 15K  PA system, led party lights and a dedicated sound technician too.

Cloudhouses aren’t just for festivals, they are for theatre space, corporate event space, kiddies themed party spaces, over flow accommodation for your family gatherings and more.

What our customers say

Just a quick note to say to thanks once again for a fab weekend in your super duper 18ft yurt.
As usual the whole team were so helpful and friendly, the showers were better than my shower at home
and a great weekend was had by all. We will definitely be wanting to book an 18’ yurt again next year so if you could put my name down or let me know when I should contact you that would be great.
