Yurt in Devon: a large, luxurious hideaway set in acres of wildflower meadows and unspoilt woodland in the idyllic Devon countryside.

General

This huge yurt in the Devon countryside is the perfect rural escape, surrounded by four acres of green woodland and wild flower meadows, with views over a water-lily covered lake. There’s plenty of room for a family of up to five, whether you’re staying put for a slow week of reconnecting with nature, or you’re looking for a luxurious base from which to explore the stunning local coast and countryside.

You’ll feel relaxed from the moment you step inside the canvas doors at Poppy Yurt. The open plan living space is spacious, light and luxurious, with a stunning, traditional frame and clear rooftop feature, rustic wooden floors, colourful rugs and a log burner for a warm and cosy atmosphere. Cooking is an al fresco experience at Poppy Yurt - but inside you’ll find a fridge to store your ingredients and drinks, as well as a dining table and chairs. The welcoming owners provide a box of delicious locally-made treats, including their own home-made honey and local cheeses. In the main living area there’s a comfy double bed and a poppy-red futon that converts to an extra bed, if you need it. Double doors lead to a baby yurt next door, where there are bunk-beds to sleep two more people. There’s also a beautiful en suite shower area in the baby yurt too, for the ultimate in luxury camping. We’re sure you’ll want to switch off completely - but if you want to charge your phone or use a hair dryer, there’s electricity included too.

The outside space at Poppy Yurt is pure bliss. It stands on a wooden deck built into the side of the meadow, and it’s the perfect place to unwind amongst your green surroundings. There’s a full size barbecue for preparing a family feast, as well as an outdoor kitchen sink with hot and cold water. Both are under a canvas cover so you can cook in comfort, whatever the weather.

Children will enjoy roaming free, playing and exploring in the beautiful woodlands, meadow and orchard - and they may even bump into the owners’ free-range chickens! For the braver ones there’s even a little rowing boat that they can take out onto the lake (with your supervision, of course).

Poppy Yurt shares the surrounding meadow with Ashley’s Shack but both hideaways have been carefully positioned so that you’ll have your own space and privacy.

Out and About

If you can tear yourself away from this fantastic place, there's heaps to do nearby, whether you want bucket-and-spade fun, a spot of shopping or something cultural. You're in between Totnes, with its fab Friday morning market and eco-friendly shops, and Dartmouth, which boasts yet more great shopping and is a beautiful area for boating. Blackpool Sands, one of the South Hams' most gorgeous beaches, is just a short drive away, as is Greenway, once the holiday home of Agatha Christie and now a National Trust treasure.
