How Did Yorkshire Yurts Start?

How Did Yorkshire Yurts Start?

If you’re interested in knowing a little bit about our history, here’s the rundown…

Whilst living in Kenya in 2009, our chief yurt man 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. Tom discovered the huge benefits of the beautiful structures known as yurts, being light and airy in summer and warm and cosy in winter. With these yurts being ideal for the UK ‘Glamping market’, Yorkshire Yurts holidays was born 2010.

Requests kept coming in from guests wanting to hire yurts for events and so in 2011 Yorkshire Yurts purchased their very first large 33ft yurt. In 2012, the difference between the holiday and hire business ensued the Yorkshire Yurts holiday division became known as Yurtshire whilst Yorkshire Yurts continued specialising in weddings and events.

We have a fantastic team which has grown with the business and with the brand and we continue to provide excellent venues for events as well as that off-the-grid peace and quiet for relaxing glamping breaks.
