Jericho Yurt

Pricing

Jericho Yurt is priced for 2 people from £95 per night. All bed linen and towels supplied. You may bring your own pillows against possible Covid infection from previous guests if you want to.

There is also room for up to two children or one adult sleeping on single mattresses, and a camp bed provided in the yurt: The cost for extra people is £15 per person per night. All extra people will need to bring their own bedding (sleeping bags), towels, we supply pillows. There is enough space for a baby under 2 years in their own travel cot at no extra charge, but we do ask politely that you make provision to remove all nappies at the end of your stay. Owing to the abundance of sheep and lambs in the fields we are very sorry but we can NOT allow dogs, however well behaved.

Jericho Yurt is situated on a raised deck in open fields with fantastic views to the front, and the woodlands behind through a transparent window we’ve made in the back wall of the yurt. Delightful solar powered fairy lights grace the inside and out for a truly romantic setting.

We’ve styled Jericho on a different theme to Old Larch using the natural beauty of ‘stagged’ oak branches. It’ll sleep two very comfortably, with other beds available for extra bodies. A wood burning stove will keep you toasty, with free wood supplied, or for you to scavenge, (axe and chopping block supplied!). Close by is a converted trailer hut with a ‘separet’ long-drop loo, hot running water and shower with a window onto the beautiful surroundings.

There is a kitchen protected from the elements with everything you need, the water is delicious and filtered so perfectly safe to drink, so please don’t bring plastic water bottles. There is also a chiminea for barbecuing or sitting around whilst you gaze at the big starlit skies, listening to owls hooting and the badgers snuffling in the woods. Kids will love sliding down to the field and swinging in the hammock. We have also provided an Ooni pizza oven for you to enjoy.

We respectfully ask our guests to conserve water, and please bring less plastic where ever possible. Our water is delicious and filtered so please resist the urge to bring plastic water bottles 🙂

There is now an EV charging point at the house for the convenience of EV owners.

What our guests say

The location of the site itself is relatively off the beaten track, but by no means off road. It is situated just next to a sleepy little village with a good pub and a local, independent shop. The yurt and set up was fantastic. Very rustic with many of the facilities hand made by Richard, the owner, such as a beautiful live wood table and there was a wood burner in the yurt and a chimenea. Overall a lovely stay and certainly plan to visit again. Richard was a real pleasure to talk to. He seems to genuinely care about the premises and the guests. One thing we will remember is Tuppence the duck. A real character that marches towards you when he sees you, runs round your legs and pecks them in a friendly manner. He lives in the pond where the boat is, which, incidentally is well worth a go of (a number of buoyancy aids are provided).

Beth – March 2024
Jericho Yurt is a magical place.  The setting is incredibly beautiful and we had the most amazing sunrises each day as well as some lovely sunsets. Richard was so lovely and helpful, a very easy and joyful experience.  The grounds feel like being back in an ancient forest, wandering around is very peaceful.  The 600 year old Oak tree has an energy all of its own - its quite simply magic !  The yurt is so very cute and cosy - we just loved it.  Highly recommend this very special place.
Karyn & Paul – September 2023
Thanks again for a remarkable stay in the glorious Jericho yurt. Our second visit did not disappoint and having brought our daughter this time around, it was a very different kind of stay. We made use of the swing, the slide and the thoughtfully planned treasure hunt on site (and we brought a few treasures of our own to share) and a fantastic time was had by all. Even Tuppence the duck gave us a warm welcome back! We stayed for an extra day this time and it was still not long enough, so we will definitely be back again at some point. So much thought has gone into making the yurts comfortable and well equipped with a touch of luxury to boot! A true gem for nature lovers, romantics and families alike with so much wildlife to see right on the doorstep, it’s no wonder you get booked up early. We can’t wait to come back soon.

We had a wonderful time at Jericho Yurt. The setting was beautiful and it was such a special place to spend time together as a family. The yurt was decorated in such a way that it felt really cosy and the fire produced tremendous heat, ensuring we were toasty throughout the night. The hosts had provided everything you could possibly need allowing us to have a memorable break.
Sam – May 2023
This was the most magical stay, and is very special to us as we got engaged under the wishing tree on the Bodynfoel estate. The yurt was just perfect and cosy and romantic, my fiancé and I got to spend so much quality time with one another. Richard, Flavia and Clare who greeting us were so lovely and accommodating and we had some good chats with them. They have created such a stunning space to get away from the hustle and bustle and just be with nature. We will come back here to celebrate our anniversary for as many years as we can ! We just adore the place to bits ! Date of stay 21/04/2023

Peaceful relaxing everything you needed great views and Richard and Flavia were brilliant.
Robert – May 2022
Thanks so much for looking after us and providing such a splendid setting! A 3 night weekend away in Jericho Yurt and the website really cannot do the setting or set up justice – helped by amazing weather for our trip. Very easy arrangements and great communication from Richard and Flavia before the booking and during our stay. We were actually doing a craft workshop for 2 days locally and using the yurt as accommodation and a base to explore from – its perfect for this with loads to see and do in the area. Really lovely set up with solar lighting, a hot shower, your own composting loo – very self contained and private in a beautiful setting. The Yurt and its facilities are great for a camping/not camping stay – very comfortable and we took advantage of the lovely walks on some evenings – and a river walk down to a local pub for food on one night. Really excellent all round, highly recommended and we will be back!
Kevin and Craig – July 2022
We had a fantastic 5 night stay in the Jericho Yurt, it was only a short walk away from the car, but far enough to have complete privacy. The set up there is fantastic as you have shelter to cook and dine if it rains and the toilet and shower is connected to the decking. There are open fields and green hills in every direction which gives you the feeling of ultimate freedom to explore. With many things to do as well as walking, including a treasure hunt for children which was great fun, we highly recommend to anyone wanting to connect to nature and escape from reality. Thank you to Richard and Flavia for being great hosts and for all of the lovely touches, this place is truly extra special.
Grace, Chris & Rose – August 2021
An absolutely amazing place to stay. Very warm and friendly hosts, beautiful surroundings and everything you could need provided, as well as some wonderful extra touches.
Michelle – May 2021
Thank you Flavia and Richard for a wonderful stay! We absolutely loved staying in the Jericho Yurt and had the most great experience. The location of this yurt was fab, very picturesque and we loved watching the sheep and lambs go around their daily business in the fields around us. Our 2 young girls loved their stay and loved going on the scary swing and rowing boat on the pond, an added bonus was having a slide attached to the yurt.. it kept the girls entertained. The girls loved the treasure hunt, finding treasure in the iconic locations around the estate was a lovely touch and activity. A ribbon was also left in the yurt to attach to the very old wishing tree at the top of the meadow which again was a lovely idea. We had the pleasure of watching the rare sitings of the pied flycatcher nesting and feeding her young at the back of the yurt, so lovely to see nature at its finest. A great place to stay for those wanting to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet, perfect for couples or families. Richard and Flavia were great hosts and were always on hand to help, we will definitely be visiting again. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Ash, Sarah, Olivia and Ella. Xx
Sarah – June 2021
The most incredible and magical place I have ever stayed! The hosts, Richard and Flavia were so accommodating, kind and inspiring people! Every single detail about and around the Yurt had been carefully thought about, I cannot fault this place at all. Set beautifully in rolling fields, there was so much to explore around us. We had originally planned to go out for tea one night but we abandoned that idea as we wanted to spend as much time in our surroundings as possible! The Jericho Yurt is the perfect place to recharge your spirit and soul. We cannot wait to return!!

Steph – June 2021
Our time at the Jericho Yurt was magical. Me and my boyfriend had been on a 2 week road trip prior to arriving, and what a perfect way to end our trip. Richard and Flavia were an absolute delight, super welcoming and lovely. The grounds of the hall where the yurt was situated are beautiful, green, full of animals and adventure. The yurt itself was even more fantastic, beautifully decorated. I love the hippy vibes.. and the bed was MEGA comfy. It also had amazing outdoor space with unreal views, great cooking and dining space. Thank you for a lovely time, can’t wait to come back again.
Jamie – June 2021
We really enjoyed our stay at Bodynfoel, both in the Guest Rooms and the Jerico Yurt. It was also a pleasure meeting Flavia and Richard. They both made us feel very welcome and at home, we loved the informal atmosphere which contributes to the comfortable stay. Also respect for their efforts to minimise the environmental impacts of their business' activities. We had some car trouble on the way in and really saw the help Richard gave in arranging the mechanic as the extra mile, it saved our break-away and lifted the mood massively.
Sam & Kirsten – June 2021
Fantastic family stay our 2 year old loved every minute of it!
Oliver – September 2020
Rain certainly didn’t stop play on our delightfully chilled weekend in October. The special touches provided: the cosy decor, twinkly lights and the oh so warm log burner, meant we hunkered down and enjoyed every moment of our time. Occasionally we ventured out to roam, what a great location, to come back to a beautifully toasty yurt. We will return. Thank you.
Mandy & Chris – October 2020
The yurt was really special and the wood-burner was so cosy to come back to after braving some showers on some of our walks. The view from the yurt is amazing and it was just lovely to sit and watch the trees and weather changing. Chiminea was great as well although it wasn’t immediately clear how the grill worked - we guessed the metal grate just needs to be inverted? All very comfortable and peaceful and relaxing.
Liz – Sept 2020
What an amazing couple of days! Thank you for kindly sharing this beautiful part of the world. We had a great time finding blackberries in the woodland and we were even able to make jam with them. This yurt is truly magnificent and everywhere seems well kitted out. We're super grateful for this getaway and hope to return! Love from Georgia & Tom
Georgia & Tom – August 2020
We desperately needed a break from the rat race and get back to nature
Kim – September 2019
We absolutely loved our stay at the Jericho Yurt! We felt so welcome from the minute we got there - the yurt is wonderful and we felt so comfortable during our stay. Already planning our next trip!! Would highly recommend
Kirsty 30/08/2019
A fantastic spot - perfect for getting away from everything! We just had the sheep and squirrels for company! Flavia and Richard are very welcoming and have thought of everything to make the stay comfortable!

Lisa 16/08/2019
Had a fabulous peaceful stay, off the grid, sheer bliss!
Beth 16/07/2019
We absolutely loved it here. Was so nice to be cut off from city life and to feel surrounded by the wilderness. The yurt felt so private and secluded.

Kirstie – June 2019
We had the most amazing stay at the Jericho Yurt! We were made to feel so welcome by richard. The facilities were great and there was lots to do such as different routes for walks, take the boat out on the pond and sit out and look at the stars. Will 100% be recommending to my friends.
Paddy 12/06/2019
Easy to find - good directions. Met by owner who was pleasant & helpful. Yurt was lovely, just as we had imagined & in beautiful surroundings. Both children (7 and 10) loved it. Wonderful walks through bluebell woods and across open fields. Lake was lovely - took out with ten year old. Both children loved the slide, swing & wishing Tree. The weather was pretty dismal but we had bought plenty to do when we couldn’t get out. The owner came out to warn us about Storm Hannah & offered a room in the house if we thought it was too frightening with the children. It arrived at 3am & was a little scary, woke us all up, but we felt safe enough to stay & it added to the adventure. All in all a great place - a little pricey but worth it for having the freedom and space which is so rare these days. It was private but felt very safe. Children asked if they could come back every year - so I would say it was a success & would recommend to friends.

Lisa 16/08/2019
Our stay was just brilliant. Richard and Flavia are excellent hosts and the little extra touches, marshmallows, treasure hunt and nature walk ideas, board games, were just perfect. There was plenty to do within walking distance and it felt like we were the only ones there because the other accommodation is well spread out across their estate. The place was extremely clean and tidy considering it was a yurt in the middle of a field with an outdoor kitchen. The yurt was themed accordingly and had everything that we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It had lovely memorable elements such as the wishing tree, rope swing, rowing boat and plenty of walks to do. We will definitely be recommending Bodynfoel Hall and will be returning again in the future.
Lucy – August 2019
We absolutely loved our stay at Jericho yurt. Such an amazing and beautiful place to get away from it all. Loved all the little finishing touches, the decor, fairy lights and stunning table. So much to do in the surrounding area too. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Anna 13/04/2019
We stayed at the Jericho Yurt for 2 nights and it was fantastic, so serene and peaceful watching the squirrels and the sheep. The views of the surrounding hills and fields are wonderful. The Yurt itself and the decking area are so well constructed and everything is there that you could need for a relaxing stay. We made tea on the chiminea and ate as the sun went down. My fiancée is 8 months pregnant and not once was she uncomfortable staying in the Yurt. We would definitely come back and stay again. 30/08/2018
Simon – August 2018
It was so peaceful,tranquil and totally relaxing. It made us smile,laugh and talk more to each other and watching wild life was great

Janet – April 2019
A lovely 2 night stay in beautiful surroundings! We loved the interior of the yurt as well as the kitchen and utilities. A great place!
