Sopley Lake Yurt Camp

Christchurch, Hampshire, England

Beautifully furnished glamping. Authentic Mongolian yurts & Bell Tents near the New Forest + beach. Groups for up to 40. Closed in winter

Sopley Lake Yurt Camp is ideally situated, only five minutes from the New Forest National Park and 15 minutes to the beach. Walk to the local pub, get your lamb steaks for the BBQ from the organic farm shop just down the road and pick your own fruit and veg from the surrounding farm fields. Fallow and roe deer often visit the camp, and a tawny owl lives in the surrounding woods. The lake itself teems with wildfowl and fish.

The authentic Mongolian yurts are filled with beautiful soft and hard furnishings from as far afield as Kyrgyzstan, Korea, China, Morocco and India. The facilities on site are all private, including fully equipped outside cooking station, hammocks, bathroom with eco-loo and hot shower and campfire. There are four pitches lakeside, with five yurts accommodating from 2 to 8 depending on the yurt.

Roast your marshmallows over your campfire, stare at the stars from your hammock or cosy up in front of the wood burner inside your yurt. After all, this is glamping!
