Orchard Glamping

The Merridale Yurts

Picture yourself sipping cider while watching the sunset over our heritage orchard with the sweet scent of apples in the air. Then, cozying up under plush bedding while gazing up at the stars through the circular skylight. Merridale’s yurts are circular, beautifully appointed wooden-framed tents. Each Yurt sleeps two adults and features hardwood floors, plush bedding, full bathrooms, and proximity to our lovely orchard.

Both of our Yurts are named for heritage cider apple varieties that we grow in our orchard: Yarlington and Tremlett. Our yurts are available between April and November. Scroll down to view the availability calendar. To navigate to another month on the calendar, click on the arrows at the top right corner of the calendar. All rates exclude taxes and are based on double occupancy.
