We are Becca & Charlotte - founders of North Sky Yurts. We are two friends with a mission: to provide magical spaces for events that don't cost the earth.
We both live in Leeds and wanted a business that would take us all over Yorkshire. We'd been dreaming of creating, building and owning our own business so in October 2020, after 8 years in the corporate world, we took the plunge and registered North Sky Yurts.
After lots of research, we sourced our yurts in Yorkshire and created a bespoke design to make them as light and spacious as possible. We then trained to put them up and down ready for 2021. Then another lockdown hit but we used our time wisely building our network, finishing our website and growing our social media following.
On top of that we also acquired a bell tent hire business providing mobile glamping; which has always been a dream. We are now the proud owners of 37 bell tents and we hit the ground running with lots of garden bookings and now our summer is full of bell tent villages for weddings.
We are learning all the time and it's not easy work but it never really feels like work. We love getting to spend our summer outdoors and visiting lots of amazing venues. We love meeting our customers and making them smile. We were made for this.
We work perfectly together, bringing two different but complimentary skill sets to both businesses. You'll often find Charlotte chatting to our customers making sure we're all set for their event and Becca dreaming up new ideas.
Director of Joy & Chief Faffer
After an eye-opening trip to Mongolia in 2017, I fell in love with yurts. I've always dreamed of owning a business and knew I wanted it to be something unique.
I love to be outside, party and I believe in magic! Happy to impart enthusiasm and ideas on styling, fun additions to your event and throw in some sustainability tips.
Director of Calm & Chief Looker Afterer
After being in the corporate world since leaving university I knew I wanted to do something fun and full of adventure - which is exactly what we're about!
I love being outdoors and obsessed with making sure everything is just right for our customers. It's so exciting being a part of someones special day whether its a wedding, birthday, festival or retreat.

' 2020 was a year of change; it gave rise to more focus and interest in sustainability and how important communities are - from immediate family to neighbours and even national society. 2021 is hoped to be the year where all postponed weddings, cancelled festivals, rearranged corporate events and all those missed celebrations can finally take place.
Becca McClure, co-founder of North Sky Yurts in Yorkshire, says: 'With traditional event venues fully booked with rearranged bookings, there is a need for event spaces that are flexible. Yurts are a blank canvas that can be used in a multitude of different ways and styled to suit the event taking place.
With the growing demand for businesses to focus on sustainability, we made sure our yurts were made locally in Yorkshire, we have multi-use flooring (avoiding single use like a lot of other providers use) and our business cards are even made out of recycled t-shirts! To help counter the emissions from events, we also plant a tree for every booking for our customer'.
