Yurts + Gypsy caravans on the shores of Lake Windermere. Horsedrawn wagon or motorhome for touring the Lake District too.

Wild in Style is run by Alex, who builds the yurts and so tailors them exactly to his needs.. they are all just a little bit different and have interesting and quirky designs. Set in a wood right next to Lake Windermere, you get the best of both worlds, access to the lake, or pottering about in the woods - whilst the mountains of the Lake District tower above you, inviting you to climb them! 

They also offer Horse-drawn Gypsy caravan holidays for those who want to try something a little different...... Remarkable value for money, as you don't spend whilst experiencing something truly unique!

Alex also teaches Bushcraft and is part of a collective at 'Into the Wild' to bring new and interesting skills to holiday-ers travelling through the county; be it to learn the art of fire making, understanding nature, making baskets, eating wild foods or learning how to use plants for medicine.. Go climbing, canoeing and ghyll scrambling - isn't that just what the Lake District is about? Why not stay in a Yurt, Berber Tent, Romadome or GeoDome and have a new adventure?

Accommodations sleep between 1-6 guests. Hawthorn and Holly Yurts and Zingaro Vardo are dog-friendly.

Monday and Friday changeover days. Midweek stays from £270 for 3/4 nights for yurts and a cabin. Gypsy wagons from £220 per night . Closed in winter.
