I ran into this yurt which they call the Hobbit Yurt in Essex. It seems like a really nice campsite to relax, learn, and have fun in. You can tent camp or rent one of their yurts. Well, this particular one stood out for me so I’ll show it to you here and I’ll provide you with the link to their site so you can check out the rest, learn about their rates, and everything else that they offer. Here is some information on it directly from their website:

This very cute Yurt was hand made by a talented local guy called Mark. We hope to get him along to host a Yurt making course here at Wowo to pass on his talent, something not to be missed. It is a 12ft Yurt suitable for one couple with one double bed only. Set in our secluded wooded Tipi Trail, (see camping areas) this is the perfect romantic getaway. This Yurt is perfect for winter camping as it will heat up quickly and fortunately we are open all year round! You have your own fire pit outside right next to the river and also an empty field opposite to gaze across at or use as a playing field during the day.

I wanted to share these pictures of yurts and other round houses. All of these pictures are thanks to Mindful Living’s unique and inspired homes. Here is a little bit about the company from their website:

Mindful Living began the the business of building unique round homes in 1982. Now, a quarter century later, it has expanded and evolved to become the established business it is today. We’re proud of our business and the work we do; we feel that we have the best people, from our drafters and woodworkers, to our product managers and sales associates. The conception, implementation and achievement of our homes depends on each individual in the team, and because our homes are essentially shipped as a finished product, we have exact standards of quality and excellence. We’ve adapted our business practice to accommodate the needs of our clients, so that what Genghis Khan started hundreds of years ago Mindful Living has refined into state-of-the-art craftsmanship; efficient, affordable and exceptional.

Their smallest design is a 158 square foot (13′ diameter) wooden yurt structure called the Wolf Creek 1. From their they can get pretty large, but here is one of my favorites of their designs mostly due to the deck around the living space…

They call this the McKenzie series and they range from 669 square feet (24′ diameter) to 912 square feet (29′ diameter).
