Each yurt has a well-stocked rustic kitchen, shower, compost toilet and firepit. Go for walks on Dartmoor, kayaking or horse riding or take a drive to the beach. Experience the eco-friendly holiday of a lifetime! We will take you and your belongings down to the yurt by tractor and provide you with a good supply of firewood for your woodburner and open fire. There is no electricity at the yurts so lighting is by candles and paraffin lamps. Relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Take a break from your busy lives!

The West Country region

We are based on Dartmoor which is a protected area of outstanding natural beauty! There are amazing walks right on our doorstep. Climb Haytor or walk down to the River Dart. See the wild ponies grazing and the buzzards swooping overhead. Or if you like horse riding there are several stables close by.Our nearest town is Ashburton (5miles away). There you can find supermarkets, delis, an artisan baker and a prestigious cookery school! Totnes which is 13 miles away is also definitely worth a visit. Voted one of the ten most funky towns in the whole world, it is filled with individual shops and cafes and a wonderful Friday market. There are some beautiful beaches 40 mins drive away. Blackpool Sands is an award winning 'Blue Flag' beach with turquoise blue sea. Bantham beach is considered one of the best surfing beaches in Devon.
