About us

Island Yurts is a small friendly family company; our workshop is buried away in the backwoods of Ashey. This is where we handcraft and build every component of the Yurts. We have developed a wealth of experience and expertise in all things Yurts as we have been, designing, building and creating them since 2009!

Our yurts have a design innovation that enables us to engineer ever larger structures, while keeping the entire structure amazingly rigid and secure in all weather conditions.

This amazing strength of our structures enables us to install mezzanine floors into our Glamping Yurts, creating a partial second storey suitable for sleeping spaces or storage. I believe we are the only yurt company able to offer this innovation.


Living the yurt life!

At Island Yurts we live yurts everyday! I with my wife Trudy live in elongated 4 metre yurt which is attached to our houseboat Freebird. We Live here in Bembridge Harbour With 6 children and our terrier Bear.

You’ll usually find us sat on the stern with a cup of tea or kayaking about in the harbour sailing about on one of our ancient sailing dinghies. If we’re not there we’re either having an ice cream in the tollgate Walking the bear on the Duver or  more realistically playing taxi driver to one of the above six kids!
