Looking to get away from it all? From the hustle and bustle, the traffic, the noise? Longing to come to a tiny, friendly and beautiful island? Perhaps for your annual refill?

Our beautiful sixteen foot yurt is just a stone’s throw from idyllic Lawrence’s beach on St Martin’s. It is situated in its own field and feels sheltered and secluded. You’ll barely see anyone walking by!

The yurt can accommodate up to 4 people, has a covered outdoor kitchen, compost toilet and solar as well as gas shower. Best of all, there is no electricity! So it’s perfect if you’re looking to truly get away from your normal busy days.

Hear the birds flying above you and watch the incredible stars at night. It’s the ultimate relaxing holiday in the most healthy of environment! Plus, you can have organic vegetables straight from our fields and all sorts of other lovely food from the shop, bakery, pub and cafes on the island.

Facilities

Our yurt has a comfortable double bed plus two single mattresses that are stored underneath. All linen, towels etc. are provided. It comfortably accommodates two people, but two adults and two children also work. Inside the yurt you will also find a woodburner, chest of drawers, a sofa, and table with 4 chairs. There are fairy lights, two battery powered lamps and a solar mobile phone charger.

Outside you’ll find our covered kitchen with running water and a twin gas hob plus all the pots and pans, crockery, cutlery and utensils you will need to cook any meals.

In a separate little field, through a charming little opening through the hedge, you’ll find the shower and toilet units. The compost toilet is pretty simple and straight-forward with a little wash basin inside the cabin too. In a separate structure you’ll find our gas and also solar powered shower.
