The Yurt has certainly seen some extreme weather since we put it up in September – including gales, hard frosts, and now snow and prolonged freezing temperatures! This weekend we headed back to Somerset, thanks to the well salted motorways, to stay in the yurt and to see how it was holding up in the snow. I was delighted the snow had stuck around for me to photograph, and we couldn’t believe the icicles on the back of the yurt! Amazing.

I was rather dubious about staying in the yurt overnight, but with the woodburner stacked up with some well seasoned oak, lots of sheepskin rugs on the floor, and a warm blanket on the bed, we were absolutely fine.

We look forward to welcoming guests no matter what the weather now!!
