Yurt in Devon: Escape to the delightful Devon countryside in a luxurious yurt, the perfect place to kick back, breathe deeply and simply rela-a-a-x. A romantic retreat for two or a perfect family escape, Rosewood makes an ideal luxury camping break.
Getting back to nature is the name of the game in our gorgeous Rosewood Yurt, surrounded by almost an acre of meadow and more than 50 acres of woodland. But don't think it's anything like those memories of dodgy camping trips with rock-hard ground, soggy sleeping bags and middle-of-the-night trips to the loo. Oh no. This is luxury camping in an exquisite circular yurt, spacious, airy and kitted out to the nines with every modern comfort. From its locally hand-made, king-sized bed you can view the starry, starry night skies through the tent's transparent dome top, and the cute little dining table is perched in the very best spot for far-reaching views. The kitchen-area includes an oven, sink and fridge - plus all the cupboard space and culinary kit you'll need - and the fabulous en suite bathroom has a free-standing bath, no less, plus a real flushing loo and hot and cold running water at the touch of a tap. There's a rocking chair by the toasty wood-burner, a comfy sofa (cum sofa-bed) and pretty painted furniture, and if you decide to bring the kids they'll love the bunk-beds in the charming 'Little Rosewood' yurt right next door. And it's all in the best possible taste, an elegant and laid-back rustic style with floral linens and crockery.
Rosewood's welcoming Owners live on site, and are happy to help with any questions but will make sure you're nice and private. They run a garden machinery business, so you may hear the odd mower or chain saw starting up in the distance from time to time. In their own secluded spot, the splendid mummy and baby yurts stand on a huge raised decked area, all the better to enjoy glorious rural views, listen to the birdsong, read a book, play a board game or get hands-on with the barbecue. You even have access to the nearby shed, complete with washing machine, tumble-drier and heated towel rail. The meadow is newly planted (it'll soon be a riot of blooms and colour) and has heaps of space for fun and games. Or else simply stretch out on the sun lounger and enjoy your well-deserved break - doing absolutely nothing at all.
Out and About
Rosewood is situated in a genuinely unspoilt part of Devon known as Ruby Country, after the local Ruby Red cattle. It's close to the border with Cornwall - so whether for short breaks or longer stays it's thoroughly handy dandy for all kinds of outings. Lace up your walking boots for lovely footpaths that lead right from your doorstep, or pop on your cycle clips and peddle the local cycle routes. At the nearby Tamar Lakes you can kayak, windsurf or mess about in pedaloes, while the North Cornwall Coast is only 15 minutes away for traditional seaside outings, from surfing the waves to bucket-and-spade days. And if all that's whipped up a good appetite, fill up with fresh produce at the weekly farmer's market in Holsworthy. Go on - treat yourself!
