This was our 3rd vist to the Yurts. The 1st in The Secreat Island this place is just grand if you want to do nothing but chill out or if you like to walk then it has some fantastic country side.The owners are very frendly and helpful i would say the only thing i think could improve this one would be a gas BQ like the secreat island yurt has but thats just me being lazy to sit in the hot tub at night rain or shine no matter just MAGIC !

It was an unbelievable experience. Probably the most luxurious experience you can ever hope to associate with camping. The hot tub was divine and the cinematic projector was an absolute winner!

Peaceful and quiet; the best sleep I have had in months. I love this place; it is absolute perfection. The lake, the wildlife and the yurt is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend staying here and cannot wait to return again someday. The owner is very nice and has obviously put in a lot of hard work to make this a little piece of heaven.

Our holiday at the secret Island Yurt was absolutely fantastic, one of the best holidays I have ever had. It showed me the nature and beauty of England and reminded me why I still take holidays in my home country. The Yurt's facilities were amazing and the setting was true paradise, plus the owners are so welcoming and friendly and happy to give advice to us novice ramblers. I have already started planning when I can next go back; it was very hard to leave such a wonderful place.

An absolute romantic retreat! It breaks my heart to unveil this Secret Island Yurt review as we want it all for ourselves! A perfect oasis! The Yurt is astonishingly spacious, very cosy with a nice warm touch to it and gorgeously decked out. The kitchen had everything you need, the bed was extremely comfortable, the projector was a treat to see our pictures together and the lake was magnificent. It was simply mesmerising looking out over the lake gazing at ducks, ducklings and swans. It was an overall amazing experience with someone I love, sitting under the stars in the hot tub in a dimmed light took us on a magical feel of peace and romance. Trust me you will not want to leave this fascinating fairyland! Highly recommended if you are looking for a romantic escape, we are definitely revisiting this amazing place soon.

There are a lot of positives about this beautiful place... the nature, scenery, the two gorgeous geese and black swans who followed us everywhere, in particular. However, the reason I would not rebook are to do with the night traffic. It totally spoilt a serene, calm peaceful break. On the Thursday night of our break, I was awake from midnight til 4 am trying to work out where the traffic noise was coming from... if it was motorway, low flying aircraft or some sort of train. If you take earplugs for the nights you will have a wonderful week!!!

We loved our break at Secret Island Yurt. It was so peaceful and we were surrounded by wildlife, including the geese and swans who would greet us each morning! The hot tub was fantastic and we made use of the rowing boat on the lake, which was a unique experience. The yurt itself was very cosy, comfortable and really warm, even during the time we were there in late December and early January. There were all the amenities you'd need, delivered in a tasteful way. We plan to return in the summer and would certainly recommend to friends and family.

We were amazed by the setting and the luxury offered by Secret Island Yurt. You really do feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, with no sounds around but the wildlife. The Yurt itself was a far cry from what you'd expect 'glamping' with a full kitchen, comfy bed, ample seating and even cinema screen and projector. Outside, the seating, sun loungers, BBQ and hot tub make for absolute relaxation. We're desperate to go back and are already looking at dates.

This was the most amazing holiday I've had for a long time. A beautiful tranquil setting, the perfect romantic getaway. And I mean perfect! We will definitely be returning.

A perfect place to escape, chill out and relax totally. You could park your car up and lock yourselves away for the week if you wished as the Yurt was equipped with all mod cons and had everything you needed - even a hot tub and sauna. There were excellent walks and wildlife to enjoy, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute we spent there. We will definitely be going again!
