Midsummer Evening at the yurt.

We are so lucky to have this beautiful place to ourselves for the next couple of weeks before we open to guests.

Evening drinks watching the Barn Owl hunting in the meadow, he flies right in front of us , before doing the circuit of the fields, we think he has young in the wood behind the yurt.

Summer Gardens

June brings an opportunity to visit some beautiful gardens near us.

The famous ‘White Garden’ at Sissinghurst Castle will be in bloom and

the eclectic and fabulous colours of Great Dixter.

Both gardens are 15 minutes drive from our yurt.

On the 6,7,8th of June The Wealden Times Fair is at Hole Park near us. A fabulous cornucopia of delicious things for the home and garden.

The 9th of June is also our excellent Biddenden vineyard’s Food Festival.

There are weekends available in June.

Welcome to the Cottage Garden Yurt Blog


With Spring on the horizon our thoughts are turning to the approaching weeks where we will start getting ready for our new season. Garden to prune, fences to re new, deck to varnish  and then the yurt to put up. It is always exciting, after the winter greyness, to see the buds and shoots of green appearing at last.

Our bookings have started to come in and we look forward to meeting new visitors and some lovely guests who have come back year after year and we now count as friends. Our challenge is to try and intruduce something new every year to the yurt or the garden.
