With jaw dropping views down the valley over Bassenthwaite Lake and just a stones throw from Keswick, our site at Kestrel Lodge Campsite makes for an ideal location for exploring the Lake District and northern fells. A fantastic local pub within walking distance, superb scenery from the door of your yurt, a better location for your Lake District glamping holiday you will be hard pushed to find.

The space
Back to Nature Living

Furnished with a distinctly Moroccan feel with woolen rugs, bright colourful throws, twinkling fairy lights, solar lighting and large skylight, our Yurts are cosy, comfortable and definitely different, guaranteed to make you feel completely relaxed and away from it all.

Sit back, take a deep breath and relax. Feel the warmth of the wood burning stove, look up and let your eye be drawn up the roof poles, past the Moroccan lantern and through the large skylight where you will see the stars twinkling in the night sky…

Endless possibilities await on the holiday that lies ahead you.

Modeled on the ornate Turkmen Yurt and made in the U.K. from light coloured ash sourced from sustainable woodlands our Yurts are extremely strong and are capable of withstanding anything the British weather can throw at them. The outside cover is made from a thick water tight poly cotton canvas. High enough so you don’t have to bend down when walking around and set on a raised wooden tongue and groove floor come and enjoy a back to nature holiday without compromising on the usual luxuries you would expect from you holiday.

Long Valley Yurts. Yurt holidays with a breath of fresh air. Based in four beautiful locations with the Lake District National Park and another in the Peak District, come and enjoy a holiday with a difference. Kick off your shoes and relax.. 'A truly magical experience' is how some of our guests have described staying in one of our bell tents or yurts. Sitting back with your mug of hot chocolate, enjoy the warmth of the wood burning stove and watch the solar fairy lights twinkling against the canvas as you drift off to sleep. Waking up the next morning to the sound of birdsong with the prospect of a day of exciting new adventures ahead is all part of the Long Valley Yurts holiday experience.
