We had a fantastic holiday. We loved the private hot tub and swimming pool will definitely go back for another holiday and recommend to friends and family. At least 5 stars to the owners.

The Rowan Yurt was extremely comfortable and cosy, the owners had thought of everything and it was a wonderful trip. The hot tub was lovely, even in the rain! The property is secluded and private which makes it really peaceful. The use of the pool was a great extra and the on site shop was really handy. I would recommend this to everyone and will be returning!

The idea of a yurt really appealed to us as we had never stayed in one before. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would recommend to anyone thinking of something a bit different with peace, quiet and seclusion. The hot tub, sauna, steam room and swimming pool were all enjoyed regularly and were very clean. The log burner was sorely missed when we got back home the hot tub too. For someone who is partially sighted, the farm was a very welcomed break, we managed well with the decking and the lay out. We will be going back if not later this year then early next year. Thank you for a great holiday.

The Yurt was perfectly positioned in magical woodland. There is not one thing that the owners had not thought of to make it perfect, luxurious and rustic. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely be returning and have strongly recommended it to friends and family.

A very relaxing break, the perfect environment in a beautiful village, a beautiful farm and close to a pub. The Yurt itself was perfect - the hot tub is excellent, really enjoyed the sense of privacy it provided.

Had a fabulous stay in a luxury yurt, with great facilities on site. There was an indoor swimming pool with sauna steam room, we especially loved having our own private hot tub. Can highly recommend this property for a romantic, away from it all break.

The Rowan Yurt was amazing! This was the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in, during the last forty years. The owners had sensitively and thoughtfully furnished, furbished and equipped The Yurt. We lacked nothing in comfort or convenience, with lots of extras. The hot tub and the nearby swimming pool (with steam and sauna) made for an absolutely perfect holiday.

Loved our stay in The Yurt, definitely going here again. The best thing about it was that you were just in the middle of the forest and all you can hear is the nature.

The most relaxing holiday we have ever had. Pub just a few minutes away, great food and drinks. Loads of possibilities for a walker. Very romantic setting, tastefully furnished, great jacuzzi, very quiet and private. I would strongly recommend to anybody.

We had a totally amazing stay. The Yurt was Incredibly comfortable and so well appointed. We loved the unlimited logs for the burner but we didn't need to use lots as it got hot very quickly. Loved that the Yurt was set in your own romantic woods. Loved having a private hot tub, but also use of the pool, sauna and steam room. Everything was spotless and so well thought through. The owners were fantastic and genuinely helpful people.

If it's something different your after ,then you won't go far wrong staying at the Rowan Yurt in Hepworth. Situated on Uppergate Farm in a secluded area the yurt has everything you need for a comfortable stay . The kitchen has microwave, toaster , gas hob and fridge and numerous kitchen utensils so everything's covered there and also a lovely large walk in shower , toilet etc. In the yurt itself you have a large double bed with bedside cabinet and dresser , wood burning stove ( logs supplied) , table and I pod dock for music, now there's no TV but I see this as a benefit as I say something different a chance to relax , unwind read a good book or do what we did and make best use of the yurts best feature, the Hot Tub !! You also get free use of the farms private swimming pool and with tokens can use the steam room and sauna , the local pub the Butchers Arms is about 2 mins away , there are numerous extras to this holiday like the use of toweling robes for the hot tub , slippers , fruit basket , milk I could go on and on , so don't hesitate this is an experience not to be missed and would make a fantastic surprise for a special occasion.

This was booked as a complete surprise by my husband as a treat and some 'us' time. This was the best 4 days I have had. There is no WiFi or TV in the yurt but that made it even more relaxing. We had a completely secluded hot tub, a log burning stove with all the logs you need and exclusive access to an indoor heated swimming pool. The yurt is set away from the rest of the farm and has everything that you need. It has underfloor heating so it's not cold at all, even without the fire lit, a beautiful bathroom and a well stocked kitchen. The owners offered if we would like to help with the animals on any day and if we would like to go egg collecting, an nice opportunity to get close to the animals. They have a small shop on site that is well stocked with home grown produce, locally made jams and some emergency items (pain killers, hayfever tablets etc...). The surrounding areas have lots to offer so you can spend your days out and about and even though you feel like your in the middle of nowhere, it's not far from somewhere!! This was a truly relaxing break and I would recommend anyone to go!!
