Holiday Rental House
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.

We will meet you when you arrive and transport your belongings to your yurt with the tractor and trailer. We will show you how everything works and then are happy to leave you to enjoy your privacy. But we are also on hand if you need us for anything.

A group of us have stayed at either Sunshine or Lake yurt every May for the last few years, using them as a base to go fishing on Dartmoor. The yurts are very comfortable and warm, equipped with wood-burning heaters and lit by lanterns. The...More

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...More

About the neighbourhood
We are located on Dartmoor which is an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are wonderful walks in every direction. You can climb one of the many tors or go wild swimming in the river. Ashburton is the nearest town and it's full of delis, antique shops and cafes. Totnes is a short drive and is famous for its quirky individuality. There are also lots of beautiful beaches to visit.
How to get there
You really need a car to get here and there is plenty of parking space at the house. Your yurt is a short walk across a field, passing the alpacas on the way!
