As if the floor
within were gold
And every wall
Of jewels all
Of wealth untold
As if a choir
In robes of fire
Were singing here
Nor shout, nor rush
But hush ....
For Angels are here.....

Stepping into the yurt is stepping into another world........
where whirling imagination can dance free.......
Thank you Carleen and Chris for all your amazing care and attention to creating such a beautiful space for ceremonies........Each and every pole has been lovingly bent and shaped to create this circle room........ You both showed such dedication and determination to craft this perfectly, against all odds and challenges...... A strong and sturdy structure ........This will be appreciated and loved for many many years to come........
I certainly vouch for your craftsmanship and attention to detail..........
And very happy to give a glowing recommendation........
Love and gratitude - Jennifer

Having travelled the length and breadth of the country to find a good yurt maker – we were astonished to find that Yurtshop was virtually on our doorstep! We commissioned our first yurt from Chris & Carleen in 2010 and now in its 5th year it is still going strong. We then had a cover for our old Mongolian Ger made by Yurtshop and that has proved to be just as reliable. We have people staying in yurts throughout the year and so it is imperative that our yurts robust and water-tight.  The quality and craftsmanship is superb, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Yurtshop to anyone interested in buying a yurt.

I absolutely love the Yurt I purchased from The Yurt Shop over 5 years ago.  Chris is a true craftsman, and the quality of his work is second to none.  My yurt has been in use year round as a Yoga Studio since purchase, it has managed to withstand some tremendous storms and heavy snow fall with no damage whatsoever, despite it’s exposed position on the South Downs.  Chris and his team have been extremely professional and helpful throughout, (even lending me a yurt whilst mine was being made) always available for advice on after care and maintenance – a service that is often overlooked by other yurt builders.     My Yurt Shop Yurt as bought pleasure to hundreds of clients of all ages over the years – I will never tire of the joy and wonder  I see on peoples faces as they enter the yurt.

Dear Carleen and Chris,

Just a short line to share with you the pleasures that Kathryn and myself have enjoyed while using the yurt which you erected on our farm.

I have to admit that I had little idea what my wife wanted and having been to see other people who manufactured yurts your operation was well above any competition, not only in friendliness but in professionalism and personal relationships.

We have as you know had a few minor problems with this yurt and your response in dealing with these problems has been quite outstanding, a quality that the rest of the industry does not seem to understand.

I wish you both every success in your venture as I believe yurts made to the standard that you provide have great potential in the future.

Kind Regards – Peter Philips

We've had our Yurtshop yurt up now for over 2 years, in all weathers, and on the whole are extremely satisfied. We have fallen in love with it as have, I can safely say, all our customers who use it. We decided to use Yurtshop because after quite a bit of research it was clear that successfully putting up a yurt in the uK, and keeping it in good condition, is not necessarily a  straightforward affair. On retrospect we are very pleased that we didn't opt for a cheaper or imported yurt which would have been very much a false economy. We have definitely benefited from Chris's long experience of making Central Asian dwelling's suitable for use in the UK's very different climate. These yurts are about as robust as they could be and visually stunning too. We opted for a white canvas which is lovely and also a larger size roof wheel to maximise light. We went for a slightly larger yurt at 20 foot and are very pleased we did so. All in all, thanks to Yurtshop's professionalism and perfectionism, we now have a truly magical space to escape to, even in the coldest depths of winter. Thanks Chris!

We have had the pleasure and privilege  of working with the Yurtshop on and off for the past 10 years. Both yurts we have purchased,one for the
Woodcraft Folk and the other for our personal use,have clearly been made with great craftsmanship, first class materials and love.The after sales service is superb with the Yurtshop happy to advise and support with great resourcefulness and attention to detail,We have also hired yurts from the Yurtshop and the quality of service and support has been outstanding. We are most happy to wholeheartedly recommend Chris and the team..

Since opening our glampsite in 2012 with our first Yurts from the Yurt Shop they have proved a tremendous hit with all our guests.
The craftsmanship and quality of the Yurts are second to none, they look amazing and never fail to get an "Oh wow!" from all our guests who stay in them.
Chris & Carleen have always given great customer service with advice before we bought and then with any other questions we might have had afterwards which have been few and far between as once up the Yurts have been problem free.
Many thanks from Little Halden Farm and we wish you every success.
All the very best,
Jon & Sara. 

Yurtshop were great, they worked with us closely when we set up our yurt holiday business in the Lake district, helping us make informed decisions regarding all of the details around the design of the yurt and the essentials for our forthcoming guests. Three years on they look as good as they did when they were put up and we have had NO problems with the yurts at all. Buying two yurts and then a further one a year later was one of the best investments we have ever made.

Hi Chris
Just a note to say thanks again so much for coming today to install the yurt. I so appreciate every piece of hand carved wood, stitched fabric and the hours you have all put into it to produce such a very special space to enjoy and teach in. 
Best wishes

Yurt Shop lovingly made our first yurt, Yurt in the Paddock, approximately ten years ago when we set up The Wasdale Yurt Holiday.  It was beautiful then and it is beautiful now! 

We have been hit by extreme weather over the years, being in the Lake District, but the yurt has stood up to it very well and makes us very proud owners.  We still stand and admire the craftsmanship of the wooden structure, as do our guests, and especially the ornate design with round roof poles which Yurt Shop offered at the time.

Yurt Shop have recently supplied a new canvas cover for this yurt, and although the measurements etc had to be given over the phone as we are 350 miles away, Yurt Shop worked very hard to make sure it was a perfect fit and even delivered it personally to us.

When it was time to purchase our second yurt, Yurt by the Stream, we had no hesitation in contacting Yurt Shop again.  We enjoy dealing with Chris and Carleen at Yurt Shop, who offer a very friendly and personable service and we trust entirely that what we ask for is what we will get.

We recommend Yurt Shop without hesitation and look forward to continuing our working relationship with them.
