Yurt
Sunshine Yurt is a traditional Mongolian yurt in a totally secluded setting on Dartmoor in Devon. Sunshine Yurt is in a meadow next to a stream, with far-reaching views and all day sunshine (hence the name!). One of only two yurts at Dartmoor Yurt Holidays, you will have total privacy, with your own fully equipped rustic kitchen, shower, compost toilet and firepit. Sunshine Yurt is beautifully furnished with kilims, ethnic throws, Moroccan lanterns and a wood-burning stove to keep you cosy. Sit out under the stars and listen to the owls hooting. A five-minute walk across our fields and you can be on open moorland or walk down to the river for wild swimming. There is no electricity at the yurt so you really will be getting back to nature and enjoying the simple things in life.
