Glamping At Mountain Cottage Yurts

Sharing is caring!

Glamping is something I am very keen to experience more of. When I got the chance to enjoy an overnight stay glamping at Mountain Cottage Yurts in Dorset, I was excited to see what a glamping experience was going to be like for me.

Located near Wimborne, Dorset, you will find yourself away from it all in this remote location. We followed the address instructions and used landmarks to find the location. As you get close to the site, the road is very narrow and you will potentially lose any mobile phone signal. 

The Coventry Arms pub is in a very handy location opposite the turning you need to find Mountain Cottage Yurts. This was a great landmark to follow. The address for a satnav and information is Brickyard Ln, Wimborne BH21 3RJ. Once you have arrived at the site, you will find free parking for the duration of your stay.

Accomodation At Mountain Cottage Yurts

As the name suggests the accomodation at Mountain Cottage Yurts is in fact yurts. There are four on site in varying sizes with different facilities depending on which you stay in. 

The yurts are named after flowers and all lit with solar paneled lights. I would suggest taking additional torches to be able to see once the sun goes down. However we did find a good supply of battery operated candles for guests to use.

Each yurt is a good distance away from each other, all sitting on it’s own decking area. Facilities near each yurt include a fire pit and barbecue should you wish to use it.

I was really impressed when walking into our yurt to see that everything was provided down to the linens and duvets and pillows. There was a log burner inside to keep us warm through the night and a complimentary basket of logs to use.

Personally I wasn’t too concerned at having a real bed, but if this is important to you then the Orchid yurt will provide you with this comfort.

We stayed in the largest yurt, Meadow which sleeps six. Our beds were futons and whilst they were a little hard, I did manage to have a decent sleep. Being wrapped up in fluffy pyjamas and a dressing gown helped add that little bit of extra padding.

Facilities At Mountain Cottage Yurts

Also onsite is a shared outdoor kitchen with everything you could possibly want included including a fridge to store any chilled food you bring with you. We found plenty of cooking stoves, which would be enough for multiple families to be able to use at the same time.

The kitchen area has a lovely cosy feel to it with it’s bright furnishings and welcoming atmosphere.

The kitchen area is also where you can find and charge any battery operated candles and lanterns if needed.

Right next to the kitchen is a wood burning pizza oven. We had researched this before our stay so bought pizzas to cook for our evening meal.

There is plenty of kindling and logs available to use in the kitchen area with an honesty box next to it if you decide to use them. If you need more, the hosts are just a few minutes walk away to request more from.

We really enjoyed using the pizza oven, and it really does make the pizzas taste amazing. When I cleaned it out the next morning, I discovered it was still warm right at the back of the oven.

The bathroom facilities provided everything we needed. The shower room was very clean and tidy and included hot water, baby changing area and sink and mirror. I knew before we went that the toilets on site are compostable toilets.

I admit I wasn’t looking forward to using these, but actually apart from being a little smelly, they were fine and perfectly OK for our stay.

The toilets were out of the way of the yurts, and this was great. We did need to make sure we took torches with us after dark as the path wasn’t lit up very well.

If you’re taking small people with you, there is a small outdoor play area right next to the kitchen. It’s here you will also find the large outdoor communal bench seating. I can imagine children would have a great time using the equipment provided here.

What To Take To Mountain Cottage Yurts

There really was so much provided already at Mountain Cottage Yurts, however we did need to take items such as toilet roll. Charcoal for the barbecue, food and drink, are also needed.
