Harptree Court

Not suitable for children

Not suitable for pets

A yurt with its own en suite roll-top bath and a lavish interior of Georgian antiques...

This year, the stately grandeur of the manor house at Harptree Court has overflowed into this incredible three pod yurt, packed with Georgian antiques, a roll-top bath and a few other touches of class. Quite what a traditional nomad of the Mongolian Steppes would have made of the dishwasher, hot running water and wifi on offer, remains to be seen!

Sleep looking up at the stars and throw open the shutters in the morning then wander through to the bathroom pod and back into the beautifully furnished lounge. For day trips, historic Bath is nearby as well as miles of rolling countryside, or you can just laze in the hammock all day, soaking up the ambiance of this thoroughly civilised luxury yurt.

Our guests say...

It was perfect and just the right balance of luxury and outdoorsy. The yurt is a wonderful space and its position of total privacy and uninterrupted views was ideal.



We could not have had a better stay!!! We REALLY didn't want to come home! The yurt was so comfortable, the bed was like sleeping in a cloud, the towels were fluffy and smelt devine, the lemon cake was out of this world, the owls were hooting every night, the rollmop bath was so deep, the water piping hot and lots of it etc etc!! The wind blew and the rain battered down but the sound of it all had such a soporific effect that I had the best nights sleep in many a year!! It was soon lovely having the run of the grounds around Hartree Court's estate too. It felt like they really liked having you there and were one of the family. I could go on for hours about what a great retreat this was for us but suffice it to say that we would have no qualms in booking it again. we know it would be a real pleasure, once again.



It was amazing. Perfectly placed and beautifully decorated.



The yurt was stunning and just the perfect selection for this time of year. With a wood stove and electric blankets we were always lovely and warm. There was a roll top bath that made this yurt extraordinary. We cooked the whole time we were there in the very well kitted out kitchen and just soaked up the atmosphere and stunning views and grounds - perfect!



Had the most wonderful weekend in beautiful The Yurt at Harptree Court. Absolute isolated bliss in acres of field. The furniture, quaint wood burning stoves and especially the novelty of a luxury bath inside the yurt made for such a unique weekend away. Linda and Charles had catered for our every need before we arrived, providing a veg box and gluten free alternatives. They were also so helpful during our stay and provided us with a lot of information about walks in the surrounding areas and the best pubs. I would recommend The Pony and Trap nearby. Also don't miss the amazing breakfast cooked up at the house. Can't wait to come again!



We had a fantastic time, it was just what we needed to get some headspace. Our only regret was only booking for 3 nights instead of 4. We came home totally rested. The peace and tranquillity were amazing, as were the hosts.



It was wonderful. A splendid yurt so comfortable and the decoration was just superb. The wood stove was very appreciated in the evening and everything was provided for. Due to a strike in the port of Calais we arrived much later than we thought so the local pub and the "welcome basket" were most appreciated. It was a great breakfast the following morning. Thanks again Ms and Mr Hill! Wonderful place so peaceful and quiet and we were very private. Our only neighbours were the deers we saw. Great place!



We spent three magical nights in The Yurt for our honeymoon. It was exactly what we were hoping for; peaceful, relaxing and with beautiful scenery. The Yurt is as luxurious as a yurt could possibly be. The bed was warm and comfy, the bathroom and kitchen scrupulously clean, the supplies provided were just what we needed to help us settle in with ease. The hosts, Charles and Linda, were friendly and welcoming. They happily provided information on local walks, eateries and taxi firms. The grounds of their stunning home are beautiful and provided a perfect backdrop for our escape to the countryside. After a hectic few weeks we were able to relax completely, soak up the view and enjoy the fresh air whilst not having to compromise on the quality of the accommodation. The local area was very pretty with plenty of footpaths and country pubs. The Pony and Trap pub/restaurant, just a few miles away, was a very pleasant bonus. We had a truly wonderful and memorable time and we wouldn't hesitate to return to The Yurt at Harptree.



We had an amazing time staying in the yurt at Harptree Court. The hosts (Linda and Charles) were very kind and welcoming , offering help if needed but in general staying out of the way and allowing us to enjoy our holiday on our own, which was perfect. The yurt itself was in great working order, and had everything we could dream of needing. It was a magical place to stay, and I could not recommend it more.



"Amazing venue, quality of premises was superb and the ambience and romance of it was absolutely first class - would definately return and recommend to others"



"We loved our 3 nights in the Yurt and were very sad to leave. Harptree Court is beautiful and we loved exploring the grounds and our beautiful view over the fields. Our stay was just as we'd hoped total escapism and we loved sitting out by the fire pit and also the cosy woodburners inside. The bed was beautifully comfortable and the Yurt had everything we could possibly need, the starter pack of goodies to eat were all delicious. The Local pub and the Pony and Trap near by were wonderful and we couldn't have had a more enjoyable stay. We'd certainly recommend staying here and hope to be back again!"



"It was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Will def be back next year. The best thing was the privacy and complete feeling of luxury and relaxation. There was nothing negative, the whole experience was magical."



"Yes,yes,yes.Everything wonderful.Peaceful.Private.Sheep.Owls.Even brilliant weather.Lovely roll top bath."



"it was a fantastic place with lovely grounds. Great value for an enchanting place."



"The weekend was amazing and I enjoyed every part. The yurt was beautiful and the views were breathtaking."



"The furniture and decorations are beautiful. The bed, huge and very comfy with electric blanket, which was very useful on cold nights. The roll top bath was a real treat. Nice toiletries.  Was great to light the fire pit to keep warm outside when star gazing, saw lots of shooting stars in one of the biggest skies I have every seen.  The Waldegrave Arms in the village was a short stroll away and well worth a few visits, food and people there very nice.  Lovely hamper and lemon drizzle cake was a lovely touch.  Would recommend this very glamorous form of camping to all.  We certainly will return.  Loved it."



"Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Chilly evenings outside and log burner inside. Peaceful and luxurious with creature comforts but under canvas. Truly wonderful."



"It was so peaceful, it was just  so romantic. We were left alone to enjoy our holiday without intrusion. The owners were friendly and helpful but left us to it, they were there if needed.  Worst part.... leaving. Neither of us wanted to!!!"



"It was such a wonderful experience. The place is beautiful with stunning views across the countryside and such a great feeling of space and peace. A truly magical experience. Lovely hosts, great accommodation and a great location."



"We had a fantastic time! Everything was perfect. Linda's lemon drizzle cake was delicious, and the bed was the most comfortable bed we've every slept in. We will return."



"The most beautiful setting - a single yurt nestled in the edge of a woodland next to a lake that overlooks fields and trees. All set within the grounds of a splendid family estate with a secret walled garden, ornamental pond, lake and livestock. We lit the wood burners and read books, cooked our own breakfasts, made fresh coffee and slept so soundly in the full size bed - complete with sumptuous pillows and electric blanket. Lots to visit nearby - but I recommend a torchlit walk to the village pub for rare venison, a pint of beer or glass of wine and a roaring fire."



"We had the most amazing time at The Yurt at Harptree Court, from the moment we arrived we felt we were in a different world. The Yurt and facilities were truly luxurious and with the driving rain and wood burner lit in June it made it more of an adventure, we did have some sunshine, but strangely enough we loved being there in the different temperaments. We loved putting our welly boots on to walk to the main house for a beautiful breakfast in the morning and then again when heading to the local pub in the evening, where we were welcomed with open arms by the locals, a real treat in this day and age (although that is sad to say, but true). The whole experience was first class and the local area very tranquil and pretty."



"Our honeymoon at the yurt was fantastic- from the moment we drove into the grounds we knew we'd found somewhere pretty special! Charles & Linda were amazing, the yurt was absolutely breathtaking and the views were picture postcard perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything more perfect, even with the typical British summer (rain all through our stay!) we had such a fantastic time."



"We had a really lovely time! The yurt was everything the advertising said and more, and Linda and Charles Hill were SO welcoming and kind.  We had  a wonderful walk around their grounds and gardens before we left.  Lemon cake and homemade bread a particular hit!"



"The entire stay was amazing. From the warm welcome from Charles and Linda to the moment we reluctantly left, the holiday was everything we imagined it would be. The yurt itself was incredibly comfortable and well equipped, and may well have spoiled 'normal' camping for me forever. The location was perfect for exploring Somerset."



"The treehouse was just wonderful, and everything had been thought out so well. We loved touches like the under floor heating and the little lights running up the stairs. Everything was of a very high standard, including the cosy cosy towels."



"If camping had always been this elegant we'd have been doing it all our lives. Amazing hospitality and attention to detail. Would recommend a visit highly to everyone."
