“Our 4th Fabulous Yurt Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Our 4th stay at Caalm Camp and it was as fabulous as ever. It may have been cold and raining outside but inside Daisy our Yurt we were warm and cosy.
This is a perfect relaxing holiday location. My son is 4 and he's loves the yurt, haybarn with its luxurious facilities,collecting logs, seeing the animals and generally relaxing
We highly recommend this Holiday.

We had a wonderful night staying in one of these beautiful yurts. Although the weather was extremely cold, the yurt was very warm and cosy and the bed was especially comfortable with lovely cotton bedding and warm duvet. Each yurt has its own bathroom which is yours for the duration of your stay. The large kitchen is very well kitted out with everything you could possibly need, and there is a large communal dining room if you don't feel like eating at one of the nearby pubs. I would certainly recommend Caalm Camp to anyone who is looking for a luxurious camping family holiday or even a romantic weekend getaway.

We discovered yurt camping last year, after becoming fed up with never being able to trust the weather enough to drag out the tents again and had stayed in two other yurt camps before trying Caalm Camp. Compared to our previous experiences Caalm Camp was fantastic. The welcome we had was really friendly and we were left to enjoy from then on. The very high standard of facilities is what really made the difference for us, with brand new kitchens, a really comfy communal lounge and our own personal bathroom where we could leave all our toiletries for the length of our stay, a simple yet great idea that saved a lot of hassle. The weather was, (of course!) really cold during our stay but with the wood burners in each yurt and being allowed as many logs as we wanted it was really cosy. We've already planned to come back in the Summer with more friends to take over more yurts and cannot wait!

Room Tip: We had a nose round all of the other yurts during our stay and they are all of the same really high...

The Yurts were beautiful and warm, the communal area was perfect for our group and the shower rooms a real delight to use. All in all it was a lovely experience and if we had had more time and the weather was warmer we would have made better use of the fire pit and enjoyed the area which looks enticing.

I wasn't sure at first about booking a yurt as a had images in my mind of it being a bit `cheesy or tacky' and am normally used to camping. After staying here however I would not hesitate in going back again at any point. It was fantastic value and slept 5 of us with comfort. Even though it was -5 outside, it was incredibly toasty inside with the log fire burning and unlimited wood supplied. In addition to the fantastic yurt experience, the facilities such as the kitchens, lounge and wet rooms were very modern and well maintained. I'll be coming back again soon with others...

What a great weekend experience, the Yurts are so toasty warm with the weather being so cold outside with very comfortable beds and fresh linens. The facilities are very modern and above what you would expect when "glamping". 100% recommend using the Caalm Camp :) I will definately be going again.

So comfortable. With the Yurts you get the experience of the outdoors but without having to suffer the consequences of the weather. With great facilities and great staff we were able to enjoy a great (and memorable) evening!
