Have you ever considered glamping in the winter? If not, you absolutely should! Between October and March are the most beautiful months to really appreciate yurting life. When you consider the history of the yurt, the yurt was in fact built for the freezing temperatures of Outer Mongolia. Luckily for you, we supply wood and coal for the wood burners – in Outer Mongolia they use cow dung!
The yurts are toasty and warm with the wood burners crackling, and it is an exquisite place to relax for a long weekend or short mid week break. During the cold winter nights the skies tend to be crisp and clear, creating the perfect environment for beautiful star gazing. An evening of sipping on hot chocolate whilst lying in your comfy bed star gazing through the perspex roof – it truly is a glorious way to spend a winter’s evening!
You would be forgiven for thinking it would be too cold to glamp at Caalm Camp in the Winter, but in reality it is quite the opposite problem. The yurts become incredibly toasty, so make sure you bring some light clothes as well as your fluffy onesie. Winter glamping offers a wonderful experience, whether you are looking for a family glamping holiday, group glamping break or a romantic weekend getaway.
Our top recommendations of things to do during your visit at Caalm Camp include: –

- Wrap up warm and enjoy a glass of wine or hot toddy by your fire pit outside your yurt. It’s a magical place to sit and just be still.
- Enjoy a nice long lie-in and stay wrapped up in bed inside your yurt. It’s such a toasty room, it’s a real treat to just sit, relax and be.
