Set in a tranquil and secluded corner of an ancient woodland. Surrounded by bluebells and wild orchids, amongst the sounds of woodpeckers and owls, Kushti Yurt offers you the chance to escape the stresses of everyday life, re-connect with nature and re-charge your batteries. A true glamping experience! Kushti is decorated in an ethnic flavour with colourful textiles and rugs. A central fire pit keeps you warm and toasty. Laid out with a double futon and an additional double futon sofa bed. There is also a little day bed which could accommodate a small child up to approx 6 or 7 years old.

Passing through on my way back to Malta...Forest Garden is a haven of peace and tranquility, an ancient woodland tucked away from the busy throb of the modern cut and thrust of daily life and an opportunity to briefly step off the treadmill and experience momentary bliss under the stars in an authentic Yurt. Hosts Charles & Lisa could not be more welcoming not only with their cheerful sense of humour and obvious enthusiasm for what they are doing but Lisa's culinary prowess seals the deal with delicious home cooking. A fabulous 24 hours in wonderful surroundings with fabulous people...wish I could have stayed longer. Thank you both.

Management response:

Charles - Always a pleasure when you come to visit us. Glad you enjoyed your stay here and we very much look forward to you returning soon with your bride! Charles & Lisa x

About the neighbourhood
Once part of John of Gaunt’s hunting park, originally the woodland was part of Anderida Forest and would have consisted of mainly giant oak with hazel undergrowth which flourished over the damp clays and loams of the valley regions. Much of the oak has now been replaced by ash which exists today with a few oaks and a coppiced hazel understory.

One of the earliest historians of the Weald, William Lambarde describes the area in his 1576 ‘Perambulation’ as “in times past nothing but a desart and waste wildernesse, not planted with towns or peopled with men, but stored with herdes of deere and droves of hogges only”.
