Our yurts have been hand-built to the highest standards and provide the perfect home-away-from-home for those looking for a luxury way to stay in the great outdoors. With their designs originating from Kyrgyzstan, our dome-shaped yurts have been hand-built in neighbouring Devon using sustainable ash hardwood.

Inside, you’ll find a Moroccan-inspired interior design with warm and rich colours, intricate patterns, and textures. Moroccan-themed brass or copper lanterns, ornate mirrors, and lamps add to the rustic ambience. Furthermore, embroidered rugs, pouffes, and cushions provide a homely comfort. * Yurt interiors may vary. 

Stepping inside the yurt, you immediately feel its cosy and inviting atmosphere. The circular space is ingeniously designed, with a central skylight or crown wheel allowing natural light to filter in. The interior is adorned with vibrant Moroccan-themed textiles, and rustic furnishings, creating a comfortable and homely ambience.

The main living area of the yurt serves as a multipurpose space, where you can relax, dine, and socialize. Seating arrangements surround a central gas-controlled log burner, providing warmth and a focal point for gatherings. A small dining table may be set up for meals. The kitchenette area is well equipped with a coffee machine, two-ring hob, kettle, toaster, wireless charging point and small fridge.

As night falls, the living area transforms into sleeping quarters for two adults and two children (up to 14 years old), with traditional futons laid out on the floor and a king-size bed for comfort. You can snuggle down and enjoy the night sky through the central skylight.

**Just a friendly reminder to pack an eye mask if you’re not a fan of early morning wake-up calls. It’ll definitely come in handy!

Adjacent to the yurt, you’ll find an outdoor seating area, where you can enjoy al fresco dining, soak up the sunshine, or simply take in the natural beauty of the surroundings.

The site offers award-winning amenities and facilities to enhance your stay, including laundry facilities, dishwashing areas, and a well-stocked shop offering essentials and local produce.
