The Environment we offer …
When our guests arrive they immediately acknowledge that they have entered a ‘green’ and natural oasis.
The word ‘green’ often conjures up visions of composting loos while erasing hopes of any glamour, but our guests are always pleased to see that we have managed to achieve both!
- In 2015 we installed a comprehensive solar system which provides energy for guest’s appliances and gently illuminates the site at night.
- 2016 saw the erection of our upcycled outside bars and sofas from wooden pallets and a revamp of our recycling facilities.
- And as from 2017 our food will be locally sourced where possible, vegetarian, and as always super-inventive and delicious!
The Oxford Yurt is committed to respecting our local countryside and encouraging biodiversity. In doing this the site maintains and nurtures large areas of wild flowers which in turn attract a great number and wide variety of wildlife. Particularly abundant at the site is Clover which provides plenty of food for bees and butterflies, and in the spring and early summer the skies are filled with the sound of skylarks.
For lots of guests the opportunity to spend time in Oxford’s beautiful countryside is part of the site’s appeal, many of whom are able to make a new or refreshed connection with the natural world.
Guests take away a sense of living in harmony in the open air as they embrace the whole ambience of the site. It is our wish that they leave with an enduring sense of peace and a genuine regard for the countryside. And it is that purpose that underscores much of our mission.
