Woodlandfun Yurts

Editorial Description

Woodlandfun Yurts is a unique and quirky little camp in the Devonshire countryside which has been carefully constructed with a real passion for outdoor living. Completely off-grid and eco-friendly, the Yurts are located in a large grass meadow which is surrounded by native woodland and extensive farmland. All the Yurts have a private balcony and veranda with a chiminea, and are very well equipped. The shared shower is inside a handmade Gothic hut, with a skylight offering views of the trees above while you shower.

Central to the site is a large communal fire pit, which is ideal for swapping stories around at the end of the day, and an extensive kitchen area has a large dining area, a wood burning stove, gas burner and barbecues, and even a clay pizza oven! There’s a variety of nature based activities available on site, such as bushcraft and forestry courses, and while there’s plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, the abundance of nature at this site makes it somewhere that you’d be happy to stay throughout a holiday!

Description

Tucked away in a valley in the Devonshire countryside is Woodlandfun Yurts. A unique and quirky little yurt camp, inspired by nature and built with a passion for the best of outdoor living. We have worked hard to put the best of camping back into "Glamping" and are more than just a home away from home. We give you a true and honest glamping experience, with all the adventure of staying away from home in a wild luxury setting. Our site is open for weekend breaks, Friday 3pm - Monday 11am.

Our site has a large wildflower meadow to house our yurts and a magical private woodland where we offer bushcraft and woodland workshops. There is nature in abundance, so if you're a keen twitcher or wildlife enthusiast, you won't be disappointed. There is a chorus of birdsong everywhere you go and if your lucky, you'll see our Wild Roe Deer feeding in the woods.

Our site is off grid and eco-friendly and-and we work hard to maintain the conservation of our beautiful site. We try to keep our site as exclusive to our guests as possible so only rent 2 yurts, The Hideaway 2 sleeper and The Homestead 4 sleeper. This means you'll have all the space you need to really enjoy your stay with us. Our yurts have a private balcony and veranda with a chiminea on each. We also have a large communal fire pit in the centre of the site. Our extensive kitchen has a large dining area housed in an open fronted barn. With a woodburning stove and clay pizza oven alongside gas burner and barbecues, there's plenty of ways to show off your culinary genius! Our shower is a very quirky gothic hut, built to offer you a unique experience in wild welfare. With two large skylight panels, you can look into a canopy of trees during a hot shower.
