Glamping or Camping?
Yurt, Bell tent or Tent?
“We stay for two nights and wish we had come for a week. There is something magical about sleeping in a yurt, with its transparent window in the roof and cocoon-like cosiness”
Catherine Mack, travel writer The Irish Times, and co-editor www.greentraveller.com. Catherine's recent trip to Cape Clear Island, published in The Irish Times: http://www.irishtimes.com...
Yurting, what’s that then?
“A diamond in Ireland's crown of emeralds" "...as close to paradise as I have been recently”
Catherine Mack, travel writer The Irish Times, and co-editor www.greentraveller.com.
Evenings in a yurt are an experience not easily beaten for cosiness and comfort! With soft furnishings, large scatter cushions, beanbags, real beds and log-burning stove - you can picture it now can’t you? Star-gazing through the top clear circle of the yurt, sitting out on the decking on balmy evenings or chatting round the stove, the peace and tranquility of the island will envelope you.
Things we take care of for you in your yurt:
Fresh linen and cosy duvets, with pillows, on a double bed and on the two single beds if required. Your stove ready to light with fuel for your first night. Gas cooker with all cooking utensils, pans, cutlery and crockery. Fire extinguisher and fire blanket for your safety. Solar powered lighting and a cool box for perishables. Solar heated hot water with wet room showers and separate toilets. All the fresh air and open Atlantic views that you could wish for.
Awaken in your Bell to the sound of waves gently lapping at rocks below you, then cast back the door to the amazing views across the sparkling waters of South Harbour to the hills with their quaint meandering roads and stone built walls, showered with wild flowers and gorse. With the sun seeping through the weave of the canvas, enjoy your leisurely breakfast while you plan your day, or prepare for your own personal pow-wow. Relax, you can always go for a walk to the lighthouse tomorrow...
On entering your yurt or Bell, instead of turning your back on nature outside, you will become closer to it, sheltered in your canvas cocoon.
