Lovely setting, excellent facilities and ideally positioned near beaches and local pubs. Kat & her family made us feel very welcome during our stay. The yurt was nicely kitted out, so very comfortable and warm - a great way to holiday with kids. Highly recommend.

I think we were just a bit unfortunate with our stay given the rest of reviews. We stayed in the small yurt, which I think may be the oldest of the yurts and felt a bit tired. I don't mind insects and spiders (and accept it's camping) but the yurt was pretty much infested to

Response from CatMiddle, Owner at High Nature Centre
Responded 4 Sep 2018
Hi there Thank you for your valuable feedback. I'm sorry we didn't live up to your expectations on this occasion. You are correct, you did come at a particularly bad time. We are a small family run business which was dealing with a family crisis this year caused by a bad decision at the UK Home Office. This crisis resulted in me having to manage the business alone whilst also juggling the full time care of our 2 year old daughter. We did managed to resolve the situation by getting our story aired on the BBC news, but sadly it was too late as the season was nearly over. To be honest, it's a miricle the business was operating at all. We realise this crisis will have had a negative impact on our business and your experience as I was not able to maintain our high standards throughout the season due to depression and exhaustion. Sincere apologies. We hope to be back on track next year. Kind Regards - Cat (and family).

Very unique place. The Yurts are all handmade by local craftsman and completed off with hand made detailed finishings. They really are very special. I've just returned from a trip to central Asia which is the home of the Yurt, and these certainly compare favourably with those.

The Yurts are very comfortable and the site is very quiet. We came as a family of four with a 3 year old and 5 year old and the kids loved it. Not far from the beach (10 mins or so) and close tinSalcomb. The toilets do take some getting used to, but this is a small matter. The

"Ask Catherine the owner"
"All the yurts were equally good. Can't go wrong."
"There is wi-fi but all electric points are in the kitchen. This is a Yurt to get back to nature with minimum interruption form the modern world."
"Our yurt had a lovely view of the sea!"
