Fred's Yurts at Hay Festival 2024

Hay Festival is one of the biggest and best literary festivals in the world. With hundreds of speakers and events from a range of award-winning authors, Nobel Prize winners, comedians, musicians and poets, this really is a very magical place to be.

Hay guest from Bristol 2019

The whole place was brilliant. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. The service was brilliant and very helpful if anything needed doing. The restaurant in the evening was perfect and catered for all at an affordable rate. The showers were fantastic, always hot and powerful. The yurts themselves were beautifully decorated and the main yurt for the bar was beautiful. Breakfast with bacon and egg buttie was a wonderful start to the day. Well done on the hot water bottle initiative too. Everything had been thought out to a very high standard.

Lovely location. Friendly and helpful people. Yurt as comfortable as a hotel room. Good showers and appreciated the proper loos this year.
