Luxury Glamping Yurt Plans for UK Countryside Launched

There are plans to add six luxury yurts as part of the diversification project at Alnham Farm, west of Whittingham.

A planning report on behalf of Peter Sordy of George Sordy & Sons declares: “After analysis of the farming business; it has become necessary to consider future options, particularly given uncertainties post-Brexit and Covid-19.”

“Taking into consideration consumer and market trends and the location of the farm, it has been decided that the tourism industry is a viable option and one that would sit harmoniously alongside the existing farming operations.”

A shower and toilet would also be provided for each yurt, as well as a hot tub on the decking.

The goal for the proposed yurts is to be carbon neutral. Heating would be provided by log burners as well as solar panels. Reclaimed wood is used for decking whenever possible.

“This proposal is similar to a scheme submitted in 2017 at Pendwick Farm, which has been a great success, with a high level of demand for this type of remote holiday accommodation which allows visitors to enjoy and experience the surrounding rural setting and atmosphere as well as the National Park in an intimate way,” states the report.

“The application proposals provide a unique and luxury form of accommodation that is not presently offered in the locality and therefore will provide new opportunities for visitors to enjoy the special qualities of this rural setting.”

The Whittingham Parish Council supported the proposal but suggested that a planning measure be included to ensure removal of the yurts once it is no longer in use to avoid deterioration.
