Our Yurts

Environment

Yurts have taken the place of becoming symbolic of an environmentally aware low-impact renaissance in Europe. Our Yurts are built with a love and respect for the wood we choose, and it is all sourced locally from the sustainably managed slopes of the French Pyrennes

Quality

Finding the right Yurt for you can be tricky. Here at Kindred Spirit Yurts / dessine moi une yourte we engage with your vision, linking it in with our experience, to build your yurt. From choosing the timber to hand finishing, we draw on traditional technique and modern application to ensure trustworthy, quality and durable tents.

Support

Years of experience have given us a unique view into living with yurts. Whether considering your first one, or upgrading to the new, we can offer consultation and support for your projects.

Specialists in Bentwood Yurts

Using local materials, the frames are made of carefully selected, sustainably managed timber, and our aim is to provide long-lasting structures of elegance, simplicity and natural harmony.  Whether you are looking for a garden retreat, a small home, a 'glamping' space or a function room.

Our bespoke, hard-wearing canvas covers are individually tailored for each tent with hemp or woolen felt insulations and linings providing comfort and durability, ensuring many years of enjoyable use with our tents.

Over 12 years improving every
detail in designing and building
bentwood yurts.

was like coming home.

Fine Yurts made to order

Our Kyrgyz style yurts differ from the Mongolian Ger both aesthetically and mechanically. The steam bent wood work of these heirloom structures combines the typical domed roof buoyancy associated to these tents with a light, voluminous, airy feel “ as if reaching to the sky..”.

Steambending the wood adds a unique sprung effect to the structure, enabling it to weather the harshest conditions.

On the whole, we make bespoke yurts, working closely with our clients to help them realise the essence of their dream-tent.

 

 

Even now, I still experience that catch-of-breath when we put a yurt frame up for the first time.

what the Kyrgistani refer to as the "Eternal Homeland"
or the "Homeland of the Soul"

The yurt is simple, harmonious and calm : a focus for daily living - nature by design.

The circle not only bringing one back to centre, but at the same time unconciously bringing a 360° awareness of the environment and ones place therein.

"Whether the circle moves with you,

or you are moved by it, it is the same."

When we look up at the star filled sky on a summer evening, the dome of heaven stretching to the horizons and beyond, we begin to feel a sense of place.That place is a mirror of who we are, and a connection to our heritage.

Yurt specialists, Kindred Spirit Yurts, make yurts and other structures to amplify this connection, providing simple elegant tents in harmony with the surroundings

Beautifully and comfortable living spaces built with quality in mind

"Being in touch with the natural world is crucial."
