Get back to nature and stay in a traditional Mongolian Yurt.  Sleeps up to 5

Our yurt set privately in a 3 acre field next to a babbling stream, at the bottom of the farm where there are lovely views of the surrounding North Devon Countryside.  Couples and families can enjoy the peace and tranquillity away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Walk over the wooden bridge to the yurt, children can play in the stream, add some more stones to the dam or just run around the 3 acre field.

Lit with candles and lamps and heated by a wood burning stove, the yurt has a double bed, a single and a 4ft futon.  All bedding is supplied, you just need to bring towels (a torch and wellies are also a good idea.) Although let for four the yurt can sleep more comfortably. Extras are charged at a small fee per person per night.   You are also welcome to pitch tents by the yurt for a small charge.  Back at the farmhouse there is also a bed and breakfast room available for non-glamping friends or relatives.

Just outside the yurt is the lovely new kitchen bothy and eco loo.  In the Kitchen Bothy there's a Belfast sink with running water, a gas hob and grill, pots and pans, cutlery and crockery for six, a bbq, coolbox, all you need to cook and eat your meals.  Also outside, by the stream is a private fire pit for your own use, no need to share with other campers and glampers.

A short walk away, at the top of the field, past the chickens from whom you are welcome to collect fresh eggs for your breakfast,  are the toilets,  showers, fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble drier and hair drier point

Thinking of having a party, reunion or family get together?  You can hire the yurt and the whole field and facilities for your party for a very reasonable price.  PLEASE SEE OUR GROUP BOOKINGS PAGE

About Westland Farm

How often do you get to stay in a hand-built home? At Westland Farm you can enjoy camping or glamping whilst feeling like you’re part of a working farm.
Set amidst the lush, rolling countryside of North Devon, on the edge of Exmoor National Park and close to some truly spectacular beaches, ancient market towns and country pubs, Westland Farm is a little piece of heaven we wish to share with you. We are a small friendly site, and wish to keep it that way.  We allow plenty of space for camping, no crowded fields even at the busiest times and some beautiful views of the countryside.  We welcome families who we love to show our animals to, explain how they are kept and welcome help with feeding time.  During the lambing season, which we plan around the Easter Holidays, guests are welcome in the lambing shed to watch and even help if they wish, there are often tame lambs to bottle feed and the more hands on types have even helped to bring new lambs into the world.  We are responsible for several young people who now have an ambition to become farmers, after helping in the lambing shed during their holiday here.    

Glamping Site Facilities
