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.
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.

Thank you and the team for all your hard work for our wedding! The yurts were stunning, we loved them!
Thank you so much for everything, it couldn't have gone smoother. The whole team were fantastic from set up to pack down and made the whole experience just great!
The Marquee and Yurt worked out really well, so thank you.
You gave us a perfect day, thank you.
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.
The event was a huge success and I can’t thank you enough for your help and support. Everything went very smoothly.
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.
The marquee was stunning and the team putting up were great. Very professional, efficient and nice chaps too!
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.
