WE NO LONGER FEATURE THIS ACCOMMODATION ON QUIRKYACCOM.COM but we have similar places in our large directory. Take a look! We have left a link to the accommodation's website for your convenience.


This tranquil glamping site in the heart of the Wye Valley is just across the lane from woodland and the River Wye, the perfect getaway hidden in the Forest of Dean. Beautiful yurts and canvas tents designed with quirky little touches give you a comfortable and unique place to stay.

The two larger spaces, Glade Yurt and Bedouin Tent have private hot tubs outside! Whether it is to relax during the day or to stargaze at night, the hot tubs are the perfect addition to your trip.

The wonderful handcrafted Glade Yurt is the newest addition to the site. Small paths and stone circles lead up to the entrance, beautiful tree panels enclose the living area and the inside is spacious and cosy, sleeping up to 5 people. Wooden tree patterns are sculpted into the walls and the furniture is handmade and covered in colourful rugs and sheepskins. There is a wood burning stove and a well-equipped, private kitchen. The shared washrooms, hot showers and loos are only 10 metres up the path.

The 24ft Bedouin Tent has an equally welcoming atmosphere, with its wood burning stove, soft electric lamps and comfortable furniture around the fire. It is set in its own little meadow and has a hammock and firepit to make the most out of your time outside. It sleeps up to 5 in a double bed, a double sofa bed and an extra foam mattress. There is a spacious kitchen and separate dining table.

For a romantic break in simple but ample facilities, hidden and with private garden, the Peppermint Tent is perfect. It has a cosy double bed, a low ethnic table and chairs, cooking facilities and also an outside barbeque firepit.

Prices start from £240 for the Peppermint Tent, £390 for the Bedouin Tent and £420 for Glade Yurt for 3 nights.

2 more Bell Tents are under construction.

Deer, peregrine falcons and buzzhards will pass through the site adding to the full nature experience. Badger Barn is the perfet starting point for beautiful long walks through the 8 miles of woodland or along the River Wye. Coleford, 2 miles away, has all the necessary supermarkets and shops to stock up on supplies.

But while you are there, why not complete your holidays by booking a fireside massage or other treatments.

Badger Barn Yurt Retreat is open from April to October.
