Fred's love of tents and the outdoors goes back as far as he can remember. After graduating from Edinburgh University, Fred's yurt career began, making yurts by hand using traditional green wood working techniques in Garnons wood in Herefordshire. His first yurt is still one of his best and it continues to tour events all summer 10 years later. Since then, Fred's collection of yurts and tents has grown organically over time.
Lockable wooden doors, wood burners, a variety of beds and bedding, tables, mirrors and lighting now mean that Fred's tents offer real luxury away from home
Located in Mid Wales, Fred's yurts have now settled in one place for the quiet seasons. This time is spent developing the website, maintaining the tent stock, sewing new canvases, and making new yurts as well as maintaining vehicles and managing stock in preparation for the next summer season
With lots of exciting developments happening all of the time, future plans are to have a couple of exclusive luxury yurts set up in Mid Wales with stunning views, hot tubs, facilities and offering local gourmet food
The current development of a purpose designed yurt building workshop and comprehensive sewing room will provide some badly needed local employment and apprenticeships as well as providing somewhere nice to visit
