YURTS AND FARM EXPERIENCES
Stay in our Yurts or Temple Folly, and meet our animals on our famous farm tours and experiences.
With a sunrise and sunset view to die for – enjoyed from dining table or hot tub – luxurious Yurts and a minute’s stroll to Fairhurst’s at Berry’s Farm Shop and Café, this really is the best way to experience Wensleydale’s unique magic. Each Yurt has its own wood-fired hot tub, gas BBQ, dining table, loo and shower. Bedding included.
Come and meet our farm animals, and find out how we look after and rear them.
Each farm tour is unique, and varies depending on what kind of seasonal things are happening on the farm. Our sows often have litters of piglets who need to be fed; our rabbit loves to have his fur gently brushed; and our Shetland pony, Rolo, enjoys getting provided with tasty hay. We also have cattle, chickens, llamas and our infamous pygmy goats, who often come along on the farm tour!
The Temple Folly
This 18th-century circular temple folly is perfectly compact, comprising of two octagonal rooms connected by a stone staircase and outside balcony. A wood-fired couples hot tub provides the perfect place to relax and unwind, with a fire pit for an evening’s stargazing.
The Temple enjoys magnificent views across Wensleydale to Bolton Castle (which is floodlit at night) to the north and the Lower Force at Aysgarth Falls to the west.
Easy to find, close to the main road, yet very secluded with high trees and wall. The nearest villages are Aysgarth which is just over a mile away and West Witton which is 2 miles away. Askrigg, Leyburn and Hawes are also within a short drive.
Our deceptively sleepy site in the heart of rural Wensleydale has several other fantastic experiences to offer. The Healing Collective provide a range of complementary therapies, such as Indian head massages, reflexology and reiki techniques. These experiences can be enjoyed either from their on-site studio or right in your own yurt. Emmas Dale Retreats run several farm retreats a year from our yurts, featuring a lovely range of activities such as foraging, sound baths, soap making, guided wilderness walks, stand-up paddle boarding and more.
