|A Mongolian Yurt, or Ger as it is traditionally known, is a unique structure that has been used by nomads for a millennia. Yurts today are used for a wide variety of purposes, from permanent dwellings, to classrooms and glamping sites, the list is endless.
The traditional Yurts we make create a space that is both permanent and secure, yet can be easily taken down and relocated with little or no impact on its environment. Whether it's stargazing through the open roof crown on a summers evening, or stoking the wood burner on a cold winters day, a yurt will certainly evoke the nomad within you.
Yurt Specialists is a family company with over 25 years of experience in making beautifully handcrafted yurts. We make a variety of sizes, from 3.5 metre diameter up to 10 metre event yurts. Our customers include the National Trust, the Environment Agency, many schools and playgroups, healing practitioners, campsite owners, and a lot of people simply wanting an alternative way to live. We make all our yurts at our workshops in Inner Mongolia, and then ship them to Oxford UK. Buying a yurt from Yurt Specialists means you are getting a fair trade product, we don't use agents or middle men, this means we can supply high quality yurts at affordable prices.
The authentic design Yurt Specialists use is widely regarded as the strongest of the various types of yurts seen around East Asia. To making them suitable for more challenging weather conditions, we have made some minor adjustments, just to make our yurts more suited to 21st century living, by raising the wall height and adding windows as standard.
Yurt Specialists don't believe in charging for 'extras', all our yurts come fully insulated with sheets wool felt, a double layer groundsheet and a lockable wooden door. The yurts outer 'skin' is a heavy duty breathable poly-canvas designed for all seasons. All yurts come with both clear PVC, and traditional insulated crown cap covers, to suit everybody's requirements. Please see our further explaination regarding 'Components & Materials'.
