Hunger Hill is open from April to October. There are 5 cosy Yurts with splendid views, set in a secluded two-acre meadow on a small holding with Kune kune pigs, ducks, chickens and a friendly old dog! The Yurts are furnished with comfy beds, kilims, cushions and sheepskins. Each Yurt has a wood burner and kitchen. Out side there is a fire pit with BBQ grill and hammocks. All Yurts are in easy reach of the main kitchen, toilets and showers. The Orchard Yurt has it own kitchen - dinning area, toilet and shower.Hunger Hill is a tranquil location next to the RSPB reserve on Aylesbere Common and close to spectacular East Devon beaches. It's a great place to holiday with friends and family.

I had wanted to do this style of holiday for many years but had trouble 'selling' it to the family. We needed a break from the day-to-day and COVID had seen to it that our other planned holidays were cancelled, so the search was on to find a short break somewhere in England. Everybody else had the same idea for the same reasons and it was proving difficult to find somewhere...until I researched 'yurts'. Once agreed, we booked an 'Orchard Yurt' due to it having its own private facilities. On arrival we were shown to our parking spot and through a gate to the orchard where the yurt, fire-pit, outdoor covered kitchen, shower, dining areas, log store, chopping block and axe were. We were then shown into the yurt which was a Tardis inside! just perfect! With the weather on our side we spent the break relaxing, visiting beaches, kayaking on the river Dart, chopping logs, cooking on an open fire and spending long evenings reading in the yurt by the log-burner. The facilities were clean, well stocked and very comfortable and we couldn't fault anything. This place is highly recommended by myself, my wife and my daughter and we are missing it already.

Room Tip: Meadow Yurts have shared/communal facilities, Orchard Yurts are more private...if you like that.

Unfortunately we will not get to experience Hunger Hill Yurt Holidays, my Wife who works in ICU (NHS) had made contact to see if there was any availability for the 14th August, my wife received a response a couple of hours later during her break from work confirming the availability of one last Yurt for the requested date, the email also included payment details, directions, information about our yurt, and that the owners would be happy to answer any questions we might have. My wife responded with our details and asked if full payment was required. My wife then returned to her unit in full PPE to attend to her patients, when she was able to take her next break she checked her emails again for a response only to find an email informing her that the Yurt had already been booked by another family? Is this how you treat all of your customers?

I’m so embarrassingly late with this review, life just got in the way after our return from Hunger Hill Yurts. We spent a week in the Orchard Yurt, where we were unlucky with the weather but lucky to have found such a lovely place to stay. Chris was very helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed BBQs and the fire in the evenings, plus the wood burner inside the yurt was very welcome when it got chilly. The only thing I would have found really useful was storage for clothing. We’ve stayed in a yurt elsewhere which had a wardrobe and it meant less chaos inside! However, next time, I’ll be better prepared. Thanks Chris, hope to see you again!

I looked at Trip Advisor before we visited and saw the 5.0 rating and having visited could not agree more. We (myself, husband and children 11 and 8) had a fabulous 5 days. The campsite is idyllic, the Yurts are gorgeous and comfortable and we loved the fire pit and hammocks. The communal kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped, bright and clean and the communal yurt was perfect for rainy meals and games. We will visit again.

Chris has really thought of everything. My partner and I had a fabulous, last minute weekend away and we were very sad to leave. You literally just have to buy your food as everything you could possibly need is there. Our yurt was great, we had our own stove, gas bottle and kettle plus a box full of essential plates, cups and cutlery, 6 of each so perfect for a family. Outside each yurt is a fire pit, two hammocks and a picnic bench with additional chairs. Chris includes a box of fire lighters which came in handy too. I had read previous reviews of breakfast that you can order, £20 for 2 people and it’s delivered by 8am to your yurt. I’ve included a pic above of what you get, though they also offer a cooked breakfast but after a bbq the continental option was welcoming. There is an abundance of firewood on site with an axe. It was a bit cold and we got through plenty. The axe comes in handy to chop smaller pieces for your indoor log burner. There’s also a yurt in the centre full of tables chairs and a sofa if you want to socialise or if the weather isn’t so great. There is a shared kitchen full of fridges, a large oven and lots of extras should you need them. There are also two hot showers, toilets and two sinks with hand soap and towels. Sidmouth is a 10 minute drive and Exmouth around 15 minutes. We cannot wait to return. What more could you want, a lot burner, bbq and star gazing as there’s no light pollution. Thanks Chris for a wonderful stay, we will see you again x
