Inspired by a passion for the outdoors and outdoor living we set out to change the way people camp and in 2008 set up Long Valley Yurts with just two 18ft Yurts at the beautiful National Trust campsite at Great Langdale.

Not only is it a truly stunning and wild location but it also conveniently provided us with a name for our endeavor with ‘Great Langdale’ being the Norse for Long Valley.

So armed with two 18ft Yurts, a name and not much else we set out on our own journey of discovery……….and what a fantastic journey it has been so far.

Move forward eight years and we are proud to say we are still working with the National Trust at Great Langdale and have expanded to offer Yurt holidays at three more stunning locations in the Lake District and another in the Peak District. Having helped pioneer this type of holiday experience we have now been joined by hundreds of other companies offering all manner of weird and wonderful types of accommodation.
