Sleeps up to four people. Professionally made in the Yurtworks workshop here on the farm, this 18ft yurt is beautifully decorated and lined for additional comfort. There is a wood burning stove, gas cooker and all the pots, pans, crocks and utensils needed to be fully self catering. There is a double bed and a double futon,
The Oak Wood Yurt is lined with gold coloured serge liners on the roof and deep red liners around the walls, a Kyrgyz woven tent band wraps around the roof poles. It has a wide arched doorway opening onto a small porch covered deck.
It is well sheltered from the weather, surrounded by oak trees, hazel and gorse, while the yurt itself sits in its own secluded clearing, with a site for a campfire and outdoor picnic table.
There is a hammock in the trees and some useful sticks and tarps for some family den building.
Cornish Yurt Holidays is a small family owned business based at Sunnybank Farm, a smallholding of 37 acres stretching from the top of the hill to the sheltered banks of the river Camel below. We started the business in 2001 with only one yurt and since then have grown modestly, maintaining a healthy balance between what we do and the natural environment. This low impact but maximum comfort approach has defined Cornish Yurt Holidays as one of the most environmentally friendly sites of this kind.
The holding supports a handful of traditional Hereford cows, and a grey Shire horse called Moose who used to pull logs out of the woods, before she recently retired.
The land is a mixture of pasture, heathland and woodland and has been managed to maximise biodiversity and the wildlife that lives here. The discovery of the rare Pearl Bordered Fritillary butterfly has led to special conservation measures to enhance and protect the habitat to support their survival.
With burning log fires and big open skies on the edge of Bodmin Moor the yurts are in a beautiful spot. The river flows in the valley below and the moors lie behind. The views of North Cornwall stretch as far as the sea.
We only have three yurts, made here at Yurtworks, each one set up on a deck in their own secluded patch.
Camp fires, barbecues, den making stuff and hammocks help you create your own encampment against a backdrop of gnarly old oaks.. A much loved natural heartland with badgers, foxes, otters, roe deer and some very beautiful butterflies.
