The Yurt

The Yurt (or Ger), home to the Nomads of Central Asia for over 1500 years, is without a doubt one of Asia’s finest creations. Entering a Yurt is like entering a Temple of the Earth, its simplicity and sacred proportions immediately transport you to another time and place. The stillness, the beauty, the warmth and the light all delight the body mind and spirit. It is as if the majesty and beauty of Nomadic life is encoded in the very structure of the Yurts themselves.

About Fairlove Yurts

Fairlove Yurts is a family business. We have been making beautiful handcrafted yurts since 1995. Over that time we have made hundreds of yurts and have had literally thousands of hire customers.

We pride ourselves on the quality of the Yurts we make for you. Our Yurts are modelled on the Turkoman style, each one is made of coppiced Ash and Sweet Chestnut (occaisionally other hardwoods are used) all treated with natural preservatives. Each pole is hand crafted and the whole Yurt is unique – a careful balance of exactness of design and the organic naturalness of a handcrafted product made from greenwood.

The Yurts have beautifully fitted white canvas covers with contrasting black canvas roof caps. All the canvas conforms to BS 5438/5867, 3408 and 2087 for fire, water and rot resistance. We believe we make for you the best, most individual and authentic yurts available.

Our hire yurts can be decorated with traditional felts and tent bands from Central Asia, the floors come covered with exquisite kilim rugs and can be supplied with beautiful carved wooden doors. This makes them the most authentic and beautiful yurts available for hire anywhere. We of course have all the product, public and employers liability insurance required.

This business is run with respect and appreciation for the Earth on which we all live and in particular for the Nomadic Peoples of Central Asia. A special thanks too, to Hal Wynne-Jones for his support and inspiration.

Some of our past customers have included:


“Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you to you and your team for Friday’s event. The Yurt was fantastic and created the professional image we were after. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to clients.”

Charity Work

Over the years Fairlove Yurts has been involved in many different charity events, often providing discounted yurts, or at times yurts free of charge. We see this as an important part of our work, we all live on this planet together and whilst we need to run a business at a profit, that is not our primary reason for doing our work, caring for our fellow human beings and the planet we live on feels more important. We’re aware too that not for profit organisations and charities are often on a very tight budget. So if that is the case in your situation then please just ask if we can do a discounted rate for your event and, if we can, we will.

This year in 2017 Fairlove Yurts did our biggest charity event to date. We organised the build of an 18ft yurt frame on a course at la Burra Verde in Andalucia, Spain. Once the cover, liners and other bits of equipment were prepared, we drove the yurt to Lesbos in Greece and installed the yurt at the Pipka refugee camp run by Lesvos Solidarity. The yurt is being used as a Forest school kindergarten and a group space now. For more details look this up on our FaceBook page.
