Meadow Yurts


Simple living, fabulous location

Nestled in the wild flower meadow at Swinton Bivouac is our small group of seven Meadow Yurts. Each of the Mongolian-inspired dwellings is handmade in the UK and is complete with wood-fired log burning stove, its own loo, outdoor seating with stunning views across the valley. 2024 will see the launch of four, new style yurts, each with an attached ‘bedroom cabin’ with log burner and double bed for extra cosiness.

The Meadow Yurt field is a short walk from the Bivouac Café, shower facilities, barbeque areas, fully stocked communal ‘camp’ kitchen, Resident’s Lounge (perfect when you need to throw yourself into a deep sofa with a cup of tea, while you browse all the local information!), and communal, wood-fired hot tub.

Meadow Yurts sleep up to four people (one double and two singles). Each yurt has sumptuous bed linens and Swinton Estate robes and towels and private loo, with shower facilities just a short stroll away. The fully stocked, communal camping kitchen is situated in the Yurt field and we’ll also keep you stocked up with seasoned logs.

Our Meadow Yurts are electricity-free, so do remember your torch!
