OUR STORY

Whilst living in Kenya in 2009, Tom fell in love with luxury camping and felt that there was a huge gap in the market at his home and native county of Yorkshire for this alternative way to holiday. After researching various options Tom discovered the huge benefits of the beautiful structures known as yurts. Light and airy in summer and warm and cosy in winter the yurts were ideal for the UK ‘Glamping market.’ Yorkshire Yurts holidays was born 2010. Due to requests from guests wanting to hire yurts for parties and weddings, in 2011 Yorkshire Yurts purchased their very first large 33ft yurt suitable for a whole host of events and special occassions. Strong demand and positive feedback has meant the business continues to evolve and over the years both the number of yurts and the team has grown. In 2012, the difference between the holiday and hire business ensued the Yorkshire Yurts holiday division became known as Yurtshire whilst Yorkshire Yurts continued to specialise in Weddings, Parties and Events.
