“Perfect Family Relaxation and Recuperation!”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed 6 nights in Sunshine Yurt with our two children. The yurt comfortably slept all four of us and was warm and much more spacious than camping. Our days were adventurous and fun and our evenings peaceful and relaxing.
The kids (and adults) switched off their electronics and got back to a simpler life.
Wendy and Larry and their dog Paddy were all very welcoming and helpful.
Day trips from the yurt were plentiful and great fun e.g. The Miniature Pony Centre, Kents Cavern, South Devon Railway, Torquay Beach, River Dart Country Park and swimming in Ashburton Outdoor Pool.

“Anazing”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed with my 2 boys, we loved every minute right from the start and the tractor ride down to the yurt. The yurt was beautifully maintained, the kitchen perfectly equipped. We only stayed for 2 nights so didn't brave the shower and the compost toilet didn't have much use - the cafes in Ashburton and the local pub benefited from the boys being squeamish about this.

Loved the horses, saw a deer, loved the fire pit, loved foraging for wood in the bluebell forest. A real break from iPads and iPhones. Will definitely be back.

“Magical”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

It's hard to describe the initial beauty and tranquillity of the sunshine yurt and the attentive and friendly service we received from Larry and Wendy. With the beautiful Dartmoor National park a mere stroll away, the location is pure perfection. The yurt is not only perfectly heated in the evening by the log burner, but also has no electricity- only candlelight; giving it such a cosy and peaceful feel. Completely going back to basics but so comfortably. Will be visiting again very soon.

“Magical weekend to remember!”
Reviewed 15 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We all had an amazing and memorable weekend staying in the yurts. I had booked the yurts for our group thinking they had looked nice and good value, however we were all blown away with how beautiful the yurts were and how magical the setting was. We enjoyed cooking on the fire, walking on the moors and cosying up the yurts in what felt like our own secluded world.
We didn't need for anything, the yurts were comfy and the little outdoor kitchens very well equipped. It gave us a a feeling of a beautiful simple country life. Wendy and Larry were so welcoming and prepared to help up with anything we needed, so thank you for an amazing weekend!

“expectations exceeded.”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was our first stay in a yurt and the experience exceeded our expectations. The yurt was clean and well furnished. It looked lovely at night with all the lanterns lit.The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. We enjoyed building fires to heat the water for the shower which worked well. The kitchen was well equiped and had everything we needed. Wendy, Larry and Paddy were great hosts making sure we had everything we needed but also giving us space to enjoy a very relaxing weekend away from the nose and stress of daily life.
