Priory Bay’s yurts are this year’s new addition to the gorgeous, seaside hotel. Using eco-friendly materials made on the Isle of Wight, you can tick off your conscience when you arrive.
Each of the five structures is 20 foot in diameter and styled by different designers to include a king-sized bed and luxury cotton linen; sofas and bean bags; soft lighting and exterior candlelit lanterns; as well as ensuite bathrooms, featuring either an overhead shower or roll top bath and that all-important flushing toilet!
Each yurt is just steps from the hotel’s private beach and has a stylish stable door with French windows opening onto a secluded terrace, where guests can laze around in their own private area, watch the sun rise if they’re awake, and be completely left at peace to relax and admire the indigenous red squirrels, butterflies, dragonflies and birds of prey that surround the hotel. There’s even a dedicated yurt butler service to bring you whatever you need – hardly camping as we know it, is it?
Should you wish to leave your beach-hut paradise and make the short walk to the beautiful country house hotel for some food, there are two restaurants with formal and less formal dining options available, with a focus on excellent, locally-sourced food. While you’re there, enjoy a swim in the outdoor pool or a round of golf on the hotel’s six-hole course.
The yurts are available until 30 September and start at £200 per night including full English breakfast at the adjoining Priory Bay Hotel.
