How it all started …..

Why Yurts?The Oxford Yurt-372

12 years ago,  Sarah Lay (the Founder), stumbled across this extraordinary community living in yurts and was bowled over by these atmospheric structures!

So, inspired by them, she hired one …. and a large, successful party later and she was hooked.   Soon followed the birth of The Oxford Yurt Company and more than a few more parties!  In fact, fast forward to now and we are delighted that each year we welcome hundreds of happy Hens and many more guests in between.


Our Food

We take our food very seriously, with each Season bringing it newly concocted menus over the winter.   All meals are cooked from scatch on site using locally sourced sustainable produce from Smart Greens and herbs from our kitchen garden and we cater for most dietary requirements so no one is left out.

Vegetarian/Vegan? an abundance of research now demonstrates the environmental benefits of a plant-based diet, and though we’ve no intention of policing parties, while enjoying the the greater outdoors it only seems fair to respect it.
