Discover nature in Devon’s hidden valley on a unique glamping adventure. We have four beautiful yurts that have travelled all the way from Mongolia. Each sits on its own decking base covered in coir matting to keep the interiors warm and dry. The yurts are decorated with colourful hangings and bed throws from India.
The three largest yurts each sleep six in one double and four single beds. One single can be put away to create space for a travel cot if needed. Our smallest yurt, Willow, sleeps four in one double and two small singles. Each yurt has a wood burning stove to keep it nice and cosy in chillier months. Nightlight candles, lanterns, fairy-lights, and one torch provided for use during your stay. Bedding is provided but you should bring towels.
Each yurt has its own camp kitchen with gas stove/oven and all crockery/cutlery and cooking utensils provided for your stay. A Weber BBQ and an open fire pit provide other options for cooking (and toasting marshmallows!). Each yurt has a nearby composting toilet but there are also flushing toilets in beautiful new bathrooms at the communal barn.
The communal barn has a large open plan kitchen, dining and living space where you can relax or party. Here you will find many of the facilities of a modern kitchen including gas burners, hot water for washing up, fridges and fridge freezers, a toaster, kettle and microwave. Cool boxes and ice blocks are provided for you to keep essentials such as milk cold at your yurt The barn has a wood burner with comfy sofa seating and a huge dining table made of a plank of redwood. The four bathrooms next-door each feature a basin, a shower and a flushing toilet with convenient benches on which you can store your belongings.
Sorry we don’t accept dogs to stay at Blackdown Yurts due to the proximity of livestock to the yurts. Sheep may be in the adjacent field during Spring and Summer months.
