A yurt is traditional Mongolian tent consisting of wooden walls, an insulating felt layer and a heavy waterproof canvas over the top. The yurts have been handmade to order by the finest Mongolian yurt builders and each one has been tested in the freezing Mongolian winter to ensure a warm and cosy holiday in the UK.
