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 occasions. Strong demand and positive feedback has meant the business continues to evolve and over the years, whilst 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.
Tom formally worked as a qualified Chartered Surveyor before setting up Yorkshire Yurts. A self confessed yurt lover Tom set up the business in 2010 as a ‘one man band’ and is now proud to have a great team of passionate fellow yurt lovers behind him.

Fantastic company with outstanding customer service!...the previous company we booked bailed on us last minute and Yorkshire Yurts step in and saved us...the event we planned wouldn't have been the same! Can't thank you enough...highly recommended!
Just wanted to say thank you thank you THANK YOU so much for your amazing marquee for our wedding on Saturday!!! We absolutely loved it, and the staff who came to set it up were so helpful, super impressed how quickly they put it up also!! They were really accommodating with the extra decorations we wanted to put up and gave us a hand with this, we wouldn’t have managed this ourselves.
Fantastic service, lovely people to deal with, great value. We hired a stretch tent and chairs for our wedding ceremony and Yorkshire Yurts made the whole process straightforward. Would highly recommend.
We hired a beautiful petal pole marquee from Yorkshire Yurts to host our wedding. Yorkshire Yurts were amazing at keeping in touch and helping with planning and layouts etc. The site visit was really helpful in ironing out any concerns we had about the logistics and location. On the week of the wedding the friendly team arrived on time and everything looked beautiful. We cannot recommend Yorkshire Yurts enough!
We had a really amazing day thank you! The marquee was a perfect set up for us, it worked really well. The team that set up were brilliant, really helpful and clear on what they were doing and the whole process from start to finish has been really easy, so thanks for that! The Celeste marquee was brilliant, the clear sides helped us make the most of the view from the tent and people loved the flags on the top.
We had an amazing day. The Petal Pole Marquee looked fantastic, especially in the evening light. It was brilliant working with you.
Yorkshire Yurts were fantastic to work with. Their customer support was second to none and I would highly recommend them to anyone. They also provide a great selection of options and were very flexible with any changes we requested.
We were delighted with the Yurt. It looked great and we got lots of compliments. We used the wood burning stove on Saturday night and it looked AMAZING (and kept us toasty!). With the lighting inside as well, it just made for such a great setting to our evening do.
We could not speak highly enough of Yorkshire Yurts, they are absolutely outstanding! Communication was brilliant, especially having had to postpone our wedding 3 times due to Covid. Nothing was too much of a problem, everyone was extremely approachable and helpful. Set up was fantastic, extremely efficient and the team working were very friendly, and went above and beyond to ensure that everything was perfect for us. The Yurts looked absolutely amazing on the day! We had multiple comments on how stunning everything looked, especially with the fairy light canopy. We have had lots of requests from friends to send details in regard to Yorkshire Yurts, as they were so impressed.
We loved the marquee and it was perfect for our wedding. The service you gave in the lead up to the wedding has been brilliant, and the staff setting up were lovely and really helpful- they were really great.
Thank you for all your help and advice, ensuring that the whole day went smoothly and was a great success. There were many favourable comments on how nice the Celeste looked and, without a doubt, it contributed to making this such a special event
We had a fabulous party, and loved the Yurt. It was a great size for our party & the log burner kept everyone warm.
