Yurt Specialist Rob Matthews outside his own yurt
Rob & Ratna Matthews established the yurt workshop more than 18 years ago. They first learnt yurt making from one of the UK's most experienced yurt makers and then traveled to Central Asia to continue training and refining their technique and design. In fact they have never stopped learning and continue to improve on the design each year.
They make high quality luxury yurts, specifically adapted for the UK and European climate. Using traditional designs and craftsmanship and the best of modern materials they specialise in making beautifully crafted yurts.
With a focus on traditional methods they have an extensive woodworking shop where we craft the beautiful oak crowns and the splendid doors and windows we are known for.
The Yurt Workshop is one of the longest established yurt makers in Europe and has made 100s of yurts which have been sent to many countries including UK, most European counties, USA, Australia, and more.
Rob is a highly respected yurt maker and pioneer of high quality, innovative and authentic yurts. The workshop yurts have a number of features not found on other yurts and of course we pioneered the Glass Wall yurt some years ago and more recently we introduced another first with the double skin roof for extra protection in all climates.
In fact, the Yurt Workshop is the only workshop in UK & Europe making hand crafted authentic yurts we know of. As a result the Yurt Workshop remains unique in offering high quality authentic designs made for the UK & European climate.
