This was a wonderful birthday treat. The yurt is in a lovely secluded area, with its own bathroom. Excellent facilities and the decor is beautiful. Our stay was made even better by Shirley and Michael who are charming and go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The yurt is a really novel way to stay... More

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay in the yurt. The facilities were superb, our family of four was exceptionally comfortable and the setting was truly wonderful. The owners, Michael and Shirley, couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We were so happy with our stay that we have already booked our... More

Set in its own private garden, our yurt stay was peaceful and relaxing, even despite the rain! The yurt is beautifully decorated and everything you need is provided. Would definitely return, hopefully with some sunshine!

I can't put it into words how lovely Mike & Shirley are. We arrived at South Worden late & tired after driving in the rain for over 6 hours - yes you guessed it the sat nav has issues. Mike was there to greet us with his trusted torch after waiting for 45 minutes outside in the rain. We were... More

Besides the beautiful rooms available, South Worden now has a beautiful, completely self-contained, family-sized yurt. It has an outdoor cooking/barbecue area and a separate bathroom.The perfect holiday if you just want to relax and get away from it all.

We had a weekend break at South Worden. It is located somewhat off the beaten track but we had no difficulty finding it from the website directions. We received a warm welcome, the bedroom was very well appointed (a Bang & Olufsen TV no less!) and spotlessly clean. The breakfast and service were excellent. If we wanted in B&B in... More

My husband and I had a wonderful 3-night stay at South Worden, and left wishing we could have stayed for longer. Michael and Shirley were great hosts, our room (Ground Floor Wing) was very spacious and comfortable, and the large bathroom with underfloor heating was a real treat. The cooked breakfasts are absolutely irresistible, and Michael and Shirley very kindly... More
