Our clients frequently remind us of the beauty, quality and durability of our yurts. Each time we make one we find the compliment we receive a marvelous reward.
I've now been living in the Yurt for over a week and I wanted to send you a review of how things have gone with our new home.
Firstly and in short the the Yurt has surpassed all of my expectations! Everyone thought I was crazy moving into a tent as they put it during the biggest storms that the UK has seen in years and the Yurt has taken some punishment. It remained warm, dry and perfectly still throughout and proved itself beyond any doubt that this is my dream home. This was a gamble but it has paid off better than I could have imagined.
When the Yurt arrived it was very well packaged and took an hour to unwrap and lay out all of the components. Each component was well labelled and easy to organise ready for the build. I was amazed that it took two of us only 4 hours to build!!!!!! We were and still are truly amazed at the quality of the build and the attention to detail in the design and each element just fitted perfectly like a giant jigsaw. The woodwork is beautiful and the felt really makes it a warm and cosy home that both my son and I absolutely love; with the log burner blazing away it is really quite magical inside and incredibly warm no matter what is happening outside. I find living in the yurt to be so relaxing and snug.
Buying this yurt is the best thing I have ever done and has made such a difference to the quality and enjoyment of life when I am home and the amazement on peoples faces when they come through the hobbit door is a constant source of amusement. The naysayers are all now looking at your website with a strong recommendation from two very happy yurt dwellers in a very wet and windy but very snug UK. Thank you so so much for our wonderful new home.
Alison and Rob, Ibiza Hi Ratna,
Yes! we have, Rob and the team are putting them up at the moment, they are taking pictures, although I'm yet to see them.
Rob is incredibly happy with the build quality, so thank you! i will send pictures over to you as soon as I have them.
We love our yurt. Love it!!
Rob, we are incredibly impressed with the build quality, thanks to you and your team.
I couldn't be more happy with my yurt, it is nothing less than a work of art...
Brilliant yurt! Brilliant Service! Thanks for getting here on time. The yurt is very well loved...
Great Yurt - thanks Rob. We used it for the first time a couple of nights ago - it's fantastic!!! I'll send some pics in due course. All the best.
Hi, Rob & Ratna! (and Chris too!)
It’s been 3 months since Chris was here pitching the yurt and it’s been a very happy 3 months. All my visitors are of course totally intrigued and think it’s the coolest thing ever. It’s everything I imagined it would be.
So I just wanted to pass along a few pictures and also to tell you, once again, how very glad I was to have found the Yurt Workshop.
I’ve named it “Eowyn’s Eyrie” (If you don’t recognize the name, Eowyn is a Lord of the Rings reference).

Hi Rob and Ratna!
Greetings from Juva. I am right now at my yurt site to clean up for summer.
m happy to report that the yurt survived the cold and snowy winter very well. The weather conditions varied a lot. In the beginning
(November and December) it was very humid and rainy. After that, lots of snow and very cold (sometimes almost -30 centigrade)
I visited the place once a month for a few days to check that things are all right. Everything was and is. Once, in March, there was about 30 cm of heavy snow on the roof. The roof held nicely, but of course I removed it from the roof immediately after I arrived.
Also, there was a furious storm right after Christmas. The wind broke a 30 meter spruce in half and the top (15 meters) fell right beside
the yurt (six meters from the wall). I was not here when this happened, but learned about it afterwards. The yurt itself was not
effected by the storm, though.
All the best

Just thought I'd send you this photo I took today. We were at StoudOnWater in the Cotswolds with two of our llamas (Spud & TwoTone) helping to raise money to restore the canal. The yurt is about 5 years old now and it's still as sturdy and comfortable, as when we got it.

Thank you Yurt Workshop, our Glamping business wouldn't have gotten off the ground without you! This past summer our handmade yurt has never been so busy, accommodating Glampers from all over Europe in total splendour.Our hand crafted yurt is beyond expectation, incredible attention to detail and finishing, thank you Rob & Ratna its perfect
The Cloud House Farm team extend their deepest gratitude to Rob & Ratna for building a magnificent yurt.
So what can I say Rob, your yurts are seriously tough and will be recommended by me to anyone...the yurts are,as I like to say, better than a Ferrari. Thanks to you and the team.
HI Rob and Ratna,
The yurt arrived yesterday and we pitched it straight away with my dad. It is just splendid. Excellent craftsmanship!
And Rob, thanks for the advice that I should get the door. It really is great!
All is well in Juva!
Derval McGovern, Tea Pot Lane Yurts
I always reccommend your yurts to people who are interested. I have 2 other yurts that were cheaper to buy (all I could afford to get started!) and there is no comparison to yours I will have to replace those in another year or so whereas yours has been up all year and causes me no problems!
Two years on and we still love our Yurt...thanks Rob & Ratna
...as we unpacked it we were awed by the workmanship and attention to detail. Each item was simply beautiful and once we pitched the yurt we just sat outside and admired it. The help you provided in selecting our yurt, the on ongoing updates, the organisation of the delivery...wonderful yurt, wonderful service, thank you and your staff for our new home.
...though I am still getting a lot of satisfaction just strutting about looking at it, sitting looking out at the world beautifully framed in the door's window, purring etc you get the picture!
I cannot thank you enough for making such an beautiful yurt! Everything about it is simply perfect. The joinery is the finest I have seen on any yurt. You guys rock!
David and Celia, Spain
Wanted to let you know that we are thrilled with the yurt. We sleep fantastically in it and feel very at home.
It's simply beautiful! Thanks!"
Dan and Juss, Spain
IT LOOKS FANTASTIC, you guys do an incredible job. Can only say we love it. Now time to enjoy the yurt and think about the next one!! Take care u4, thanks for making it over & sharing the incredible art of yurting! We all thought it was an incredibly special day.
Chris Dean, Spain
Just a quick email to tell you how much we love our yurt, it looks fantastic!...it went up beautifully, looking nicer and nicer at each stage. The walls, roof poles and crown went together easily and even at that stage it looked fantastic. I have started doing yoga and meditation in the ger, it is such a lovely, relaxing and peaceful place.
So this is to say a huge thanks to you both for building such a beautiful ger, the work and care that has gone into it is obvious, the quality of the woodwork and the materials are superb.
Thank you so much. It is a beautiful yurt. The attention to detail is wonderful. Everything works so well. The packaging is also brilliant and I will reuse it when travelling.
We love the yurt! We all love it and cant keep out of it. Your service is brilliant and against the odds you had made in time.
Erik and Caroline van Hulst , Holland
Finally, after three days of hard work, I am able to relax a little bit in my cosy hammock and write you an e-mail to say thank you for the beautiful yurts you have made. What a great piece of workmanship! Also our compliments for the way the parts were labeled and packed. That made everything a lot easier.
On thursday we started at 7.00 a.m. and we had both yurts up at 5.30 p.m. (is this a good time for non-experienced yurt builders :-))
So, once more, thank you for a great job and please express our thanks to all the people who have put their efforts in the making of our yurts. (the paintwork on the crown is fantastic!)
Charlotte Phillips, Northern Spain
Its fantastic! You really have thought of everything and I appreciate the quality of it, well worth the money so Thankyou very much. Another ýurtmaker helped me put it up and he's well impressed and has been taking notes. Which is great as he's just starting out.
Francis Baxter, Baleares:
We´re loving the yurt, just loving it. It´s a true work of art, thank you.
Max Machin, Estepona, Spain:
It's the best thing I have ever bought. I love my yurt!
Richard Everiss Director for Yorkshire Planetarium, Leeds, England:
The Ger itself is simply a thing of understated beauty. Adapted to meet my requirements it could have been a disaster but the care and attention which has been lavished on it during its construction is evident. Rather like finding a smooth pebble on a beach, so Robert and his wife Ratna have hand crafted a building that is wonderful to touch and feels naturally balanced.
Kathy from Barcelona, Spain:
..thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you - The yurt looks amazing and is beautifully made, "maker of fine yurts" is certainly an appropriate title. It is beautiful and warm, even in sub zero temperatures.
Polly & Ben, Brighton, UK:
Hello again, just to say we love our yurt, it is a thing of beauty. We are really glad to have found you and it.
Henrietta, Yurt Hotel, Spain:
I have been meaning to email you for days now to say how much we love our new yurt. It is really beautiful, thank you very much! I just wanted to wait until we had some photos to show you. I had to wait until we had a changeover.
Here they are...
Thank you again for our lovely yurt.
We love the Yurt - put it up this spring time and we love the traditional feel and shape.
The ger went up perfectly thank you and was loved by all.
We caught up with a few of our old customers to see what they thought of their yurt and our service. Here is what they said - follow the links below:
