Clare's Yoga Yurt

How to find it, hire it or join a course in it.

Clare's Yoga Yurt

Set in six acres of beautiful Ashdown Forest countryside, Clare's yoga yurt is the ideal spot for your workshop or course, for those times when soulless hotel conference rooms just won't do.

You have a direct access track into Ashdown Forest, with its ancient oak trees and woodland paths.

Quiet and secluded, but easily accessible from the local towns of East Grinstead, Hartfield, Forest Row and Tunbridge Wells, it's just an hour from London (London Bridge or Victoria).​

It's not just for yoga and meditation classes.

The Yoga Yurt has also hosted business Masterminds, personal development courses and team-building sessions.

Any workshop that would thrive being located in the countryside, away from the bustle of the office, would work well at the yoga yurt.

Please note that there is good mobile data reception, but no wifi or internet. It is intended for off-grid events.​

Available to hire for full days or evenings. Hire includes:


The yurt includes all the yoga mats, cushions and blankets you need for up to 10 students, plus optional meditation stools.

It can accommodate about 11-12 yoga students, plus the teacher, or up to 20 for a sitting-on-cushions workshop.

It stands on an insulated base which, combined with the yurt's felt lining and 7kW wood-burning stove, means you'll be warm and toasty, whatever the weather. Reasonable use of wood for the wood-burning stove is included in your hire.

The yurt has its own compost loo, too!

And there's a picnic area outside, for warmer weather.


The therapy studio (about 50m walk) gives you a second loo and a kitchen, along with table and chairs for your students' break times and herbal teas.

It also has its own 50' garden, which is a lovely spot for outdoor lunches.

Note: we ask that no food or drinks apart from water be taken into the yurt - because who wants to do their yoga on someone else's sandwich crumbs?!


Your students can enjoy herbal teas in the therapy studio and we provide Plawhatch spring water or filtered water, for those who prefer not to drink tap water.

If you want catering for your event, we recommend talking to Shane at Cafe CoCo in Forest Row, who can provide a delicious and affordable menu for you.


You can hire the yurt and therapy studio for a full day (8am to 6pm) for £250. Evening hire (6pm to 10pm) is £100.

For two-day hire, the middle evening is yours, as our gift.

Please note that we are not able to offer overnight accommodation in the yurt or therapy studio, even for a two-day hire, but we can help your students to find lovely places to stay, locally.​

How To Find Us:

Springfields, Colemans Hatch, Hartfield, East Sussex TN7 4HG

Sat Nav usually gets you to our track, opposite Parrock Lane, and then we're the first white gate on the left. Come through the gate (please close it behind you - there are deer in the forest!).


Please park in the field on your right, opposite the main house.

Directions From Forest Row:

  1. Leave Forest Row on the Hartfield Road (Co Op will be on your right). 
  2. After the village, follow the road round a sharp right hand bend and then a sharp left hand bend. After a further 300m there is a tall, white, wooden sign post on the RIGHT. It points to Parrock Lane, on the other side of the road. This sign post on the RIGHT is the corner of our track.
  3. Turn RIGHT up the track and Springfields is the first white gate on the LEFT. Come through the gate and park in the field on your right.
  4. If you reach Catwick Cattery or Colemans Hatch Church on the main road, then you have gone too far.

Directions From Hartfield:

  1. Leave Hartfield towards Upper Hartfield, Colemans Hatch and Forest Row.
  2. You will eventually pass Colemans Hatch Church on your right, then Catwick Cattery is on your left, as you come down the hill.
  3. Very soon after the cattery, there is a tall, white wooden signpost on your left and a bus stop. This is the corner of our track.
  4. Turn left up the track and Springfields is the first white gate on your left.
