Guest Reviews

Just Some of Our Many Reviews….

Our fourth visit to West Wood Yurts, but our first time in the Shepherds Hut and we absolutely loved it. The views from the decking are stunning, the weather was on our side, and the Shepherds Hut was lovely and cozy with everything you need included. On arrival we were shown inside and the various amenities explained.

The Hut was absolutely spotless, as were the shower/toilets located a short walk away. A 5 minute stroll takes you right onto the Gibside National Trust Estate whilst a 25 minute walk will take you to the far end of the estate where the Beer Garden is situated and is a must do visit on a Friday and Saturday evening. This is the same area for the Market Place and Chapel. The stroll back (uphill) took us 35 minutes. Seeing the the estate after dark is another experience again.

… Can’t wait to return, sooner rather than later.

We have just got back from four nights at the Yurts. It was amazing!!! I think it’s important to stress here that we are not campers. Far from it. I don’t know one end of a tent peg from another, and my partner knows even less.

We hired one of the large yurts as in our party were myself and my girlfriend, and our collective brood of four children aged six to eight. The yurt was plenty big enough for us. It is really well stocked with just about everything you could need although I’m sure, like us, you’ll still pack nearly everything you own into your car……..just in case!

…I really can’t recommend this holiday enough. And I can’t really explain why it’s so good! It just is. You’ll have to go yourself to understand. There is one thing I’d like to improve…… My mobile phone signal was excellent whilst there. Is there anyway it could be blocked so that no one could contact me?!!!!!
