Our contemporary yurt offers stunning views of the Taw Valley.
With a beautiful separate kitchen and a bathroom with a drawbridge wall, this is a unique + romantic space for two.
The yurt is kitted out with a wood burning stove for cosy and warm evenings.
Please be assured we have opted in to the highest standards of cleaning for each changeover to ensure a safe and enjoyable stay.

The space
We have built this yurt using wood harvested from the farm. The kitchen, bathroom and loo have all been built using recycled or upcycled materials.
The bathroom is an original vintage cast iron bath.
Towels and bedding are provided for your stay.
We have just closed the family run restaurant at the farm but the chefs have instead created Judy’s One Pot Country Meals which can be delivered straight down to the yurt. To pre order check their facebook page which will also show their current menu or contact Leila, Max or Olivia and we will happily do this for you.
We will supply you with plenty of logs for your trip for a super cosy stay.

Guest access
The yurt is private and has access down the field from the main farm. There is also access to the river which is great for a dip in the summer - there are fishing rights to the river so do be aware of any fisherpeople if are skinny dipping ;)

Other things to note
Chaps please pee sitting down or al fresco on the grass (not on the gravel). The sawdust is purely for the solid waste hole only - do not use saw dust in the urine separator.

For the TV, turn on with the larger remote and switch the digi box on with the smaller remote. The TV is then controlled by the smaller remote - press EPG for the guide and to change the channel.

For the drawbridge wall on the bathroom:
It's a bit of a Heath Robinson invention and is a two-man job.
Whilst one person is on the winch on the back of the shed, the other person gives the wall a little nudge on the inside of the bathroom.
The wall will lower to rest on the ground.
When lifting the wall back up, someone may have to help lift the wall to start it off but then the winch will do the rest of the work for you. Please be careful as the wall is heavy and we don't want any injuries.

We ask that the yurt is left as you find it.

We are a young(ish) couple from North Devon. Max grew up on a farm where we built our yurt that we now rent out on Air BnB. It was our first home together where we lived from 2012. We run three renewable companies from the farm and needed a tranquil spot of our own to rest our heads after work. The first winter was interesting and not one we repeated! I think the lowest temperature we registered was -11 over Christmas. It was strangely romantic at the time but we were a bit younger then. Hence the yurt is now up from March-September. We then bought our first flat in 2013 and based ourselves mainly there (also now on Air BnB) to get a little distance from work. We love to travel and explore new places. We have had some fantastic trips and have used Air BnB ourselves many times. We live in Ilfracombe pretty much full-time as we love to be by the sea and there are some fantastic places to eat. We have a ton of local knowledge so feel free to pick our brains. As hosts, it's all about the little touches for us. We try and provide a really personal service and have really enjoyed this first summer renting out our first homes. They mean so much to us and we really want to create a homely, romantic and relaxing vibe for our guests. We hope we are succeeding and look forward to welcoming you into our homes. Leila and Max

Max and I can be available to show you down to the yurt, or we can leave clear instructions on access if you would rather.
