Anthony and El-Jay have developed a great concept...a small, family friendly group of yurts in varying sizes to accommodate 2-6 people. Each yurt has beds or futons and wood burning stoves... The facilities are basic but clean - there's a communal outdoor 'lounge' for cooking and relaxing, a washing up area, couple of showers and loos - our hosts offered... More

The site location is stunning, with beautiful views over the River Yar. Anthony and Ell Jay were exceptionally welcoming and helpful and catered for our every need. The yurts were clean and had all the crockery and utensils we needed, including ice packs and cool boxes. It was fun cooking in the communal tent and we gathered herbs from the... More

We had a wonderful week at this beautiful site. Stunning view down to the river and so quiet. Ell Jay was lovely and worked so hard to make sure everyone had what they needed and were happy. Our yurt was very comfortable with a big wooden bed and futon and we enjoyed lighting the woodburning stove every evening. Everything was... More

Nicely appointed yurts on a spacious pitch, so you don't feel crammed in by your neighbours. The large communal area under a big dome had two gas barbecues to make cooking easy. The showers are really good and the whole set-up is very eco-friendly. There's no electricity on the site but solar lamps keep it well lit at night. Site... More

Beautiful beautiful stay! Lovely staff and owners, sweet accommodation. My husband and I would go there again in a heart beat. Warm showers, clean bathrooms, and a very peaceful location overlooking a river.

I read about this place and the amazing reviews it got so decided this was the place I wanted to spend my birthday weekend. Oh boy what a big mistake that was! To start with it took them a while to reply to our emails but we got all the instructions on how to find the site and that worked... More

We were very sad to hear your review, particularly because you made no mention at all of your issues to us while you were here and gave us no opportunity to rectify things. Our shower to guest ratio is average to good for camping and glamping sites, with there usually being a maximum of 30 guests using 2 showers. There... More

Our first visit to the Isle of Wight was made all the happier from the comfort and hospitality provided by The Really Green Holiday Company. We were made to feel comfortable and welcome on arrival and throughout our stay. Our small yurt was perfect for 2, and provided everything you could need. Although the site was fully occupied, we did... More

The site was great and fantastically located for a lot of family trips, the facilities and yurts themselves were fab, but hands down the best thing about the site was the staff. Friendly and helpful through and through, they made the time to chat to us, recommend places to eat and visit and even stopped in the car to say... More

Just back from a great couple of nights stay at the Really Green Holiday CO. It's a lovely relaxed site, slightly ramshackle in a way that befits it's eco credentials. There's long grass for a four year old daughter to run around in, secure gates so the same daughter can't escape, really helpful site managers Anthony and Ell Jay, hot... More
