Spotlight on ‘Yorkshire Yurts’

You may have seen them associated with glamping or on programmes filmed in Mongolia, but what exactly is a Yurt?

“A yurt is a circular wooden framed tent structure with a lattice wall and a cone shaped roof. The outer fabric shell of the yurt can be made of felted wool, coated canvas, or a modern architectural fabric.”

I particularly love them because they are so versatile and the space inside is light and airy, free of any poles and ropes, they are great value to hire and they give an extra dimension to a wedding, party or event.  So much so that I had a winter birthday party in one earlier this year complete with roaring log fire, sheepskin rugs and a winter wonderland dinner table!

For weddings they can be used for a ceremony, reception and by linking two together you can add on a ‘chill out’ area, bar and  dance floor. The yurts give you a blank canvas to decorate how you want with the option on a really hot day to take off the sides leaving the beautiful lattice frame  open.  You can even hire a small one to sleep in on your wedding night – complete with fire and  Egyptian cotton bed linen – what could be more romantic!
