US Rural Accommodation Specialist Yonder Launches In UK
Offering over 5000 rural holiday stays tapping into increasing interest in nature based travel for Brits
AUSTIN, Texas, May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Yonder, the US based travel platform that invites people to reconnect with the natural world with its nature based accommodation focus, is today launching its UK collection. It features 5000, and growing, accommodation choices across the country aiming to tap into the increasing interest in rural holidays.
Yonder was founded in 2018 by U.S. Montana-based Tim Southwell on the principles of connection, community and coexistence between people and the natural world.
As a permaculture farmer and farm stay owner, Mr. Southwell was frustrated by mainstream booking sites under-serving the farm stay community. This led him to discover the tremendous opportunity for a platform that not only connected guests to farms but to a diverse array of nature immersive experiences.
Today, Yonder is bringing the same focus to the UK and is launching with over 5,000 stays that bring travellers closer to nature. Through the Yonder site and app, guests can now book overnight accommodation at countryside farmstays, cottages and glamping locations.
Properties featured include Higher Wiscombe Holiday Cottages, a group of award winning, eco friendly holiday cottages located in a secluded 52-acre valley, a few miles from Branscombe beach in East Devon. Alternatively, The Shearing Shed, Old Farm Dorn, in a single storey barn conversion on a working farm in The Cotswolds. Or Hoe Grange Holidays, a cluster of self catering cabins and a traditional bow top gypsy caravan set on a Peak District farm.
"We're thrilled to bring the Yonder platform to the United Kingdom," said Bill Lee, CEO of Yonder. "When we started this business in 2018 our prime focus was to make it easy for people to find brilliant places to stay so they could reconnect to nature. The interest in this type of holiday has skyrocketed in both the US and UK, especially during the pandemic. Today, people are travelling with a greater intention and want to know both the story behind where they are staying and the impact their trips will have on both the environment and local communities," added Lee.
