Enjoy a break in our beautiful Yurt, set next to a river, in its own private field and woodland, surrounded only by nature. Perfect for romantic breaks, fun family getaways, and those who seek peace and relaxation, with easy access to South Cornwall's many attractions. You have the entire half acre site to yourselves, including private kitchen, toilet and shower. Bedding, towels, Wifi, solar electricity, fridge, USB charging points, mains water and wood burner are provided

The space
The yurt is located on its own, next to a river, within a plot approximately half an acre, which includes a field, private woodland, outdoor play and kitchen area (with covered kitchen, BBQ, rope swing, cave and fire pit) and your own private toilet and shower. The site is secluded, private and for your sole use only. There is a beautiful bridge crossing the river, and areas where you can access the river and have fun building dams or trying to catch the fish. The immediate area around is full of old mine buildings, nature reserves, glorious woodland walks and many trails, paths and bridleways (see photos).

The yurt is very large (20ft diameter), insulated and sleeps 4 to 5, with a double bed and 3 single beds. Bedding and towels are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own if your prefer (please let us know in advance). The yurt also has clothes storage, a dining table and chairs, comfy bean bags, a small camping stove (for hot drinks only).

Wifi is provided (we have super fast FTP), but if you prefer to un-plug completely, we can disable the wifi for you. The site is off-grid, with low voltage power supplied by solar panels, providing lighting and USB charging points (total of 4). Water is mains-supplied (drinkable), and the fridge, cooking hob and shower are gas-powered.

Located next to the yurt is the shower and washing up facilities (separate wooden building, with mains water and gas powered heated shower). Toilet facilities are located in the same field as the yurt (only 30 meters away), and comprise a brand new solar-powered, luxury composting toilet (with urinal and hand washing facilities).

Cross-over the river / bridge from the field into the cooking and play area, where you can enjoy more outside space. Here you will have your own private BBQ, covered outdoor kitchen, fire pit, stream and rope swing. You are welcome to scavenge fallen branches / wood from around the wooded site. The kitchen is well equipped, and includes a 2 ring gas stove (plus grill), ample crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, and cooking equipment. There is a table and 8 seats (4 wooden, and 4 portable camping chairs), and a gas powered fridge, although you are welcome to keep drinks cool in the stream (there is a wine cooling crate attached to the bridge).

Where you’ll be

Troon, England, United Kingdom

Our small hamlet of Carwynnen is a site of archaeological interest, with Giants Quoit only a 5 minute walk away. Carwynnen is also fantastic for wildlife lovers, with one of Cornwall Wildlife Trusts best woodland nature reserves, Pendarves Wood, located on the door step. It is peaceful and green and we regularly see wildlife in the woods and fields - including rabbits, deer, foxes, badgers and lots of birds including Buzzards and Barn Owls (Otters have been observed in the river, although sightings are rare).
