“Yurts on a real farm”
Reviewed 20 August 2011

We stayed here for a week mid August and despite the weather really enjoyed the experience. This is the second year that yurts have been available on this organic farm in Devon which is home to Devon red cattle,sheep, two pigs, hens and many geese. The boys, 12 and 10, enjoyed helping to collect the eggs and this is a popular activity with many of the children who stay here judging by the comments in the visitor's book. We were particularly impressed with the friendliness of the farmer, Ben. He made a point of seeking out the boys to help with the eggs after I had asked earlier in the day whether they could assist him and was happy to talk when he could have been getting on with other things. Our yurt was very confortable and light with a small wood burning stove which the boys enjoyed lighting and a place outside where they could also light fires for barbeques etc. I would warn people however to bear in mind that that this is a working farm and the yurts are an addition to the farm's activities and as a result sometimes there is a lack of attention to detail e.g things run out ( matches, firelighters), it gets muddy and there is also only a limited chance to dry anything out should it get damp. There is however a large room where children can play ( inluding a pool table which our boys really appreciated) with info on local places, activities etc and an adjacent well stocked kitchen with fridges and cookers. It was lovely to see all the geese run into the field of a morning and into the barns at night and all in all our week there was a really enjoyable experience.
