Hidden in a meadow known as Night Pastures, each of our yurts has been hand crafted in wood from trees on the farm and hardwood that grew just ½ a mile away.
About Your Yurt
Natural light spills through an open oak stable door and three picture windows. Sit back and listen to the sounds of bird song and the rustle of the leaves in the morning breeze. Breathe deep as the fresh air fills your lungs.
A luxurious double bed, and two optional single beds complete with fresh linen and chest of drawers makes your rural retreat a home from home. On those rare occasions when the sun doesn’t shine, the natural insulation of wood floor, wool rugs and the warmth of a wood burning stove will keep you blissfully cosy.
Fully-equipped field kitchen with gas cooker, barbecue, washstand and fresh water tap, plus table and chairs – the perfect setting for memorable alfresco meals and moonlit dinners.
Snug ‘en-suite’ bathroom hut, complete with flushing toilet, Victorian sink, towels and a large walk-in hot shower means you can still enjoy the comforts of home whilst out in the field.

During peak times we have back-to-back bookings so we ask you to kindly vacate your yurt by the agreed time so as to give us a chance to make it lovely again for the next guest.
What time can i party to?
Nightpastures is located in a National Park and the valley we are in resonates for miles around. Fopr guests hiring a single Yurt we ask you to respct the other guests and keep noise levels to a minimum. For people hiring Yurts as part of the main venue hire, we do not permit any amplified music beyond 11.45 pm without a special concession first as other fees apply.
Chichester District Council require us to register for a special event license for any event which will go on past midnight and failure to do so results in an immediate fine for breaching noise pollution statutes and bylaws.
If you are planning your party at Nightpastures, please contact us first with your requirements and be sure to check our booking terms and conditionslisted here on the website.
