Welcome to The Really Green Holiday Company for a great Yurt Holiday!
Unfortunately, we suffered badly in storm Katie on Easter Sunday! We lost 4 out of our 7 yurts that we were getting ready for the season ahead. We also lost our fabulous Dome which is our communal area & without which we can’t offer our special holidays. We are progressing with plans to re-open but can’t confirm a timescale at present. Please contact us by email if you have any questions or are interested in a holiday later in the season. Please keep an eye on the website where we will keep you posted of our progress. Thanks to all our family, friends and guests for their support.
Glamping holidays with a difference
We provide high quality environmentally friendly camping holidays in comfortable fully furnished canvas yurts on the beautiful Isle of Wight.
We have seven comfortable Yurts on an organic farm overlooking the River Yar a short walk from the beaches, cycle tracks and glorious walks of the West Wight.
What makes us different?
We put the environment and our ethos of sustainability at the centre of our business, making it easy for guests to be as ‘green’ as they wish to be. We have won a Green Business of the Year Award and make a regular donation from profits to Friends of the Earth. Read more about our concept and our Green Policy. Our holidays are ‘Glamping’ with comfort and soul!
Camping under the stars in a canvas yurt is a relaxing and beautiful holiday experience. Our yurts are warm and comfortable, on raised wooden floors with a woodburner, proper beds and futons and all the equipment you need for your perfect stay check out all the standard furnishings and fittings. The yurts are set apart from each other with your own outdoor BBQ and eating area with a brazier for evening fires to gather round, and glorious views of the river and unspoilt countryside.
Our beautiful site is located on farmland at Kings Manor Farm, Freshwater, a working organic farm. It has extensive beautiful views of downland and the River Yar. It is a very tranquil setting accessed from a private drive far from the main road yet is very accessible. It is situated on the Freshwater Way, a public footpath linking Freshwater and Yarmouth, and is close to main bus routes. The award winning Red Lion pub are within a short walk along the footpath. We are ideally situated for walking holidays being on many well known trails, including the Round the Island route, and also for cycling holidays as we are on excellent cycling routes and can arrange discounted cycle hire.
We also offer pitch up camping for up to 5 tents if you wish to stay as part of your own bespoke camping holiday.
We have a good parking area but love it if you would like to leave the car behind, so much so that you get a 10% discount if you come on foot or with bicycles. We can collect you from the Yarmouth terminal at no additional charge in our electric car.
Unfortunately, as we are on a working farm, we are unable to take dogs.
We have solar and woodburner heated showers and washing area in a wooden chalet adjacent to the yurts. We are installing flush toilets in the chalet and will be retaining compost loos on site. There is a communal covered ‘Dome’ area for cooking and eating with sofas, books, games etc. We grow our own organic veg and herbs that are available for guests to use.
Groups, Schools and Events
We take whole site bookings for groups and events as well as being a great venue for smaller groups for birthdays, hen or stag groups etc. We are a great venue for Teambuilding events or weddings and can add extra tents or tipis, marquees or large event yurts, as well as being able to arrange for generators, catering, entertainment etc.
Schools have enjoyed fun and interesting trips and residential weeks with us and a wide range of curricular and extra curricular activities can be arranged. Our staff are all CRB checked.

The Isle of Wight is an outstanding place for world recognised events. From Festivals (The Isle of Wight Festival, Bestival), to walking events and cycling events and of course the sailing, we offer a fantastic accommodation base and packages including transport to them all.
