THE SITE

If you’re struggling to find a suitable site or need some inspiration, do take a look at our venues section for a list of recommended and trusted venues, in and around Yorkshire.

 

Things to consider when choosing a site:

Access
The site must have good access for up to a 12 tonne vehicle to be able to get within 20 metres of the set up location. Any problems with access must be discussed with Yorkshire Yurts at least 2 weeks in advance of the event as the hirer may be liable for costs associated with additional labour/delivery charges.

 

Condition of land
It is the hirers responsibility to provide a fully grassed, firm, level and well drained site. It must be able to easily hold pegs at least 2.5ft into the ground. Any grass should be arranged to be cut by the hirer at least 3 inches or less, 1-2 days before the event.

 

Area for structure(s)
As well as the condition of land it is also the hirers responsibility to check that the size of the site is suitable. An extra 2m is required around each structure size, to allow space for guy ropes. If you have any doubt as to the suitability of a site, this must be discussed with the Yorkshire Yurts team at the time of booking. Where necessary, a site survey can of course be undertaken. Site surveys will incur additional charges, so do ask our team for more information.

 

Overhanging Branches/Trees
Any overhanging branches or trees must also be cut back by the hirer in advance of Yorkshire Yurts arriving on site. The hirer will be liable for costs associated with additional labour, if not actioned before the Yorkshire Yurts team are on-site.
