The estate has been part of Charlie’s family since the 16th century, though he only purchased the land and began to develop it into the magical glamping haven it is today in 2012.
Though Charlie has transformed much of the 60 acres, he has worked around many of Fir Hill Estate’s original features.
The site of the estate’s old cow shed, for example, has been transformed with modern barns housing amenities and both indoor and outdoor social spaces.
The Mongolian-inspired yurts spread across the surrounding grassland are, of course, the main attraction.
Of the 12 yurts on-site, guests can choose either a Family Yurt which sleeps up to nine or a couples yurt that can sleep up to three. All bedding and bedlinen comes included within the accommodation, though visitors will need to bring their own towels for shower time.
During our stay, we were lucky enough to stay in one of the couples yurts which Charlie dubbed “The Honeymoon” yurt.
When Fir Hill isn’t offering luxury breaks, it also doubles up as a perfect place for lovers to tie the knot.
Charle explained this is what Fir Hill calls a “Wed Fest” – keeping in line with the summer festival vibe.
As such, our yurt was kitted and featured a dainty posy of wildflowers sat on the bedside table.
