Enjoy a holiday with a difference. Get back to nature in a traditional Mongolian yurt, enjoying total privacy in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Each of our two yurts has its own woodburner to keep you warm and cosy, rugs and lanterns and a double bed and a futon. Each yurt has a well-stocked rustic kitchen, shower, compost toilet and firepit. Go for walks on Dartmoor, kayaking or horse riding or take a drive to the beach. Experience the eco-friendly holiday of a lifetime! We will take you and your belongings down to the yurt by tractor and provide you with a good supply of firewood for your woodburner and open fire.

Perfect for a family or for a couple wanting a romantic... Read more

We had a lovely stay, it is such a relaxing and beautiful place and the site has everything you could ever need. The outdoor kitchen, wood fire heated showers and fridge in the stream as well as everything else make it a completely rustic and back to nature experience. Loved the solar lighting, made it very magical.Thank you!!
