For 2018 Withybed will have four yurts on the site not three as shown in the picture.
Withybed Yurts are positioned beside a farm track near to the Deer Park on Stroud farm which is a mixed farm with cattle, sheep and cereals.
This yurt camp is facing west to maximise the stunning sunsets. Roe deer often come and graze between the wood and field edges. Tawny and Barn owls will be heard most nights. In May and June listen out for the Nightingale too.
A small seasonal stream runs below the site between two woods on either side of this private campsite.
Withybed camp has three sleeping yurts, two of which have one double and two single beds with a futon that will be made up if required in the booking, then one yurt with 4 single futons. A fourth yurt is the living area with a dresser including a two ring gas hob, low table and seating.
Other facilities include a covered washing up area with solar powered fridge and single point to charge phones. A compost loo and bath under the stars (very popular!) with hot water from a wood fired hot water tank, gas shower.
During the winter of 2017/18 there have been alterations to the general layout of the site and the decking has been enlarged to enable us to put up one more sleeping yurt to accommodate groups of up to 14 people.
The site is child friendly and we welcome up to two dogs on this site. Hen do's and group bookings are also welcome at Withybed.
There are excellent train links nearby at Sherborne, from which Stock Gaylard is a 10 minute taxi ride, there is a taxi office at the station.
We recommend Dike & Son, our local family run supermarket in Stalbridge for groceries. They sell a range of local produce plus all the well known brands you use every day.
In addition we can provide Venison from the estate POA.
