Netherby Estate Woodland Yurt - Dog Friendly Stay


A hidden gem on the England-Scotland border, Netherby Yurt is hidden away in its own private woodland clearing. With acres of land that's yours to explore this really is an outdoor lovers paradise. 

From the Yurt you can see up to the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders in one direction, the Lake District in the other, and the Solway coast is close. With a whole host of woodland trails across the Netherby Estate also mapped out as an option for you during your stay you really are spoilt for choice! 

The Yurt itself is beautifully decorated with a boho vibe. An array of soft furnishings from beanbags and footstools to rugs and throws, coupled with the log burner give the place a really cosy feel. The coffee table made from upcycled driftwood and adorned with tealights further added to the cosyness once the light faded and the fire was roaring, The vintage suitcase at the foot of the bed made me reminisce of Harry Potter and Hagrids hut. 

Just outside the Yurt there is a firepit with natural log benches placed around the sides for enjoying in the evening (unfortunately for us the weather had other ideas!) There is also a BBQ (you do need to bring your own charcoal) as well as a wood fired hot tub. The hot tub is surrounded by a sea of trees and you really do feel like you're miles away from everyone and everything!

As well as the Yurt, guests have access to their own private cabin which is situated just a short walk away. The cabin is fully heated and includes a fully equipped kitchen, sofa and bathroom area with shower, toilet and sink. All bedding and towels are included but it is worth mentioning you might want to pack a robe/extra towels for the hot tub! 

I would highly recommend packing a torch for if you do need to walk from the yurt to the cabin (toilet) at night. The path down is very dark and although there are a few solar powered lights that dot the path, we found that these weren't working. I'd also recommend packing a camping stake for pups. Although this is fully private it is also open woodland and inquisitive pups are likely to wander! 

We loved our stay here and enjoyed every second, despite the constant rain. It was just made even more cosy listening to it from inside the yurt!
