Hi - We are looking for a yurt (or possibly a tipi) - can anyone help?

Preference is for a good quality yurt but not the expensive prices seen on internet. Size is not an issue - interested in all.

Also keen for a stove to go inside - and in ways to waterproof naturally, without applying nasties.

Anyone experienced - We would love to hear from you!!!

Best wishes

There is a bloke in Northampton who makes yurts my mate bought one will ask around and see if I can find out a name. In fact I think another mate bought a teepee in Northampton too.

There are a few yurts situated at rocks east woodland just out side Bath. They might be able to help you, really good people and they are preserving an anchient woodland. http://www.rockseast.org.uk/
