A Magical Yurt Hideaway and Faeries in an Apple Orchard on Vancouver Island

This was my first time staying in a yurt! Merridale Ciderworks is a picturesque property in the Cowichan Valley featuring a bistro, bakery, two yurts, distillery and apple orchard.  The yurt was amazing and their cider is the BEST!
