Sunshine Yurt is a traditional Mongolian yurt in a totally secluded setting on Dartmoor in Devon. Sunshine Yurt is in a meadow next to a stream, with far-reaching views and all day sunshine (hence the name!). One of only two yurts at Dartmoor Yurt Holidays, you will have total privacy, with your own fully equipped rustic kitchen, shower, compost toilet and firepit. Sunshine Yurt is beautifully furnished with kilims, ethnic throws, Moroccan lanterns and a wood-burning stove to keep you cosy. Sit out under the stars and listen to the owls hooting. A five-minute walk across our fields and you can be on open moorland or walk down to the river for wild swimming. There is no electricity at the yurt so you really will be getting back to nature and enjoying the simple things in life. This is a magical holiday, suitable for all ages. An unforgettable experience!

About this location

The Devon region

Sunshine Yurt is on Dartmoor which is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty with breathtaking scenery, wonderful walks and magical tors to climb. If you love wild swimming or kayaking the rivers on Dartmoor are perfect. You can walk to the river from your yurt.

Or if you prefer the beach there are some of the most beautiful beaches in England just a short drive away. We have several picturesque villages nearby, all with wonderful old pubs. And Totnes, voted one of the 10 most funky towns in the world is also close by.
