Orchard Glamping

The Merridale Yurts

What do you get when you combine camping with a little “glam”? The answer is “glamping” and at Merridale we offer this increasingly popular pastime with two on-site “yurts” (circular, beautifully-appointed wooden-framed tents). Popular as bridal suites during our wedding season, each of our yurts sleeps two and feature hardwood floors, plush bedding and proximity to our lovely orchard. We have two yurts on the farm: the “Yarlington Yurt” and “Tremlett Yurt”, both named after varieties of apples in our orchard. Our yurts are available between April and mid-November and are extremely popular, so to avoid disappointment, please book early!

More details below.

Our Yurts

Yarlington Yurt

Queen-size canopy bed, claw foot soaker tub with separate two-piece bathroom, spacious patio and gas fireplace.

Tremlett Yurt

Queen-size bed, separate bathroom with enclosed shower, covered back patio and gas fireplace.

Extra guests

Our yurts comfortably accommodate two people. However, an air mattress may be added to the Yarlington Yurt for 1-2 additional guests if arranged in advance (additional charges apply).


Our yurts don’t allow for cooking (who wants to anyway), but our Eatery opens at 11am daily and serves all-day Brunch 7 days a week from 11am to 5pm.

Other Notes

•  Free wifi is available on the property.
•  The yurts aren’t vehicle accessible – but we can offer a wheelbarrow to take your “stuff” down!  Please let us know if you need further assistance, and we will see what we can do to help you.
•  If you’d like to bring a furry friend, please ask about our pet policy.
•  Both Yurts have fans for hot days and a small gas fireplace for colder days. As Vancouver Island's fall weather can be unpredictable, bring warm clothes and slippers.
•  The yurts do not have fridges, but we can offer a shared cooler with ice for anything you wish to keep cool during your stay.
