Plush Tents is an award winning, sustainable yurt village nestled in the picturesque South Downs. We offer glamping and venue hire for events in our magical woodland oasis. Our aim is to provide a break from the hustle and bustle of modern life and allow each of our visitors to truly relax and unwind. Lovingly built each spring, our village is more than just a pretty tent in a field. Each hand crafted Mongolian Yurt is nestled within landscaped woodland, designed for both tranquility and serenity as well as a sense of community. Our communal areas such as our endlessly versatile home yurt are a hub for a multitude of activities and often house cinema nights, yoga classes, children’s workshops and family get togethers. Our heated shower block, wood fired hot tub and private hammocks for each yurt add a touch of luxury and comfort to an outdoor experience making Plush Tents perfect for the whole family.
Our peaceful, secluded village will allow you to completely switch off from the modern world if that is your aim. We purposefully have limited wifi through the main site to allow this to happen (It’s available up at the reception if you need it). For those looking to explore the area we are only a short distance from the beautiful sandy beach of West Wittering, Goodwood motor circuit, Fishbourne Roman Palace, Kingley Vale and the historic city of Chichester. Close enough in fact to order a takeaway to be delivered if you can’t be bothered to stoke up the BBQ!
Fully furnished and space for everyone.
Each yurt is totally unique and designed for your comfort. They are furnished with vintage furniture, hand carved beds and feature antique or salvaged wood burners. There is 1 double bed and up to 3 single memory foam floor beds for children. Cots can be provided free of charge (please note that these do not come with linen).
Comfortable, luxury linen
All of our linen is luxurious Egyptian cotton, our towels are fluffy and we choose our pillows and mattresses for maximum comfort.
Your wood burning stove comes with a nights supply of wood. Our friendly staff will light it each evening for you and can show you how to keep it burning if you are new to the fire starting game.
Light and sound
Create your own ambiance with our led colour changing mood lighting, plug in your iPod to the sound system and relax in your own chill-out zone powered by rechargeable batteries.
Cooking and Catering
Each yurt has its own coal barbecue, gas stove, picnic table and a hamper full of all the cups, plates and crockery you will need. There are supplies of tea and coffee too for throughout your stay. Our communal treehouse kitchen features 2 x gas burning stoves and ovens, a catering sink and an ice box refrigerator for keeping your drinks cold.
Breakfast hampers and catering
For a decedent, locally reared breakfast order one of our delicious hampers created by Field & Fork directly to your Yurt for you to cook yourselves. If that sounds like too much effort ask our staff for the range of take away options available for delivery. Our on site catering wagon is open each day serving tea, coffee and light refreshments.
Our whole site is yours to explore, from home yurt with its sumptuous chesterfield sofas, cinema projector, sound system and roaring fire, to the wood fired hot tub, z line of hammocks and natural play area. We encourage you to join us round the communal evening bonfire to toast a marshmallow and watch the sun go down.
Toilets and Showers
Our heated, cosy shower and toilet block contains 4 reliably hot, gas-powered showers (2 for men and 2 for women). There are two types of toilets on the campsite: flushing toilets (3 Ladies, 2 mens & 2 urinals) and composting toilets (1 ladies, 1 mens) which are an experience which must be tried to feel truly at one with nature. Speak to our staff for instructions of how to use them.
There is plentiful parking on site. We close the gate at night and don’t accept cars after 11pm to keep the site quiet and safe. Parking is on grass so appropriate footwear is advisable. Chichester train station is 4 miles away and there are numerous taxi hires that can bring your guests to and from the site.
