You can walk from your yurt to the Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve through ancient woodland to Iron Age burial mounds and stunning panoramic views stretching from Brighton in the East to Southampton in the West. The Reserve contains one of the finest yew forests in western Europe, and includes trees which, at around 2000 years old, represent some of the oldest living things in Britain.
