From the owner

Enjoy a holiday with a difference. Get back to nature in a traditional Mongolian yurt, enjoying total privacy in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Each of our two yurts has its own woodburner to keep you warm and cosy, rugs and lanterns and a double bed and a futon. 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! Perfect for a family or for a couple wanting a romantic getaway.
