The Owner Says

Each yurt sits on its own wooden deck with tables and chairs and a chimenea. Both yurts can sleep 5-6 people on a double beds, daybeds and futons.

Owl Yurt is further from the kitchen and shower facilities across a little stream for the feeling of being more in the wild and is slightly smaller being 19ft.

Both yurts are fully furnished and equipped with log burners for cooler evenings. Solar powered fairy lights add to the atmosphere along with solar powered lanterns.

The fully equipped kitchen can be found in the log cabin with a range cooker with gas hob and electric oven. There is also a microwave, toaster, kettle, juicer, cutlery and crockery, tables and chairs for a rainy day, plus storage, fridge and freezer. Outside is a dining tent with a bench table. Our outdoor cooking area includes a wood-burning pizza oven, BBQ and campfire.

Each yurt has its own private shower and flushing toilet facilities in the next log cabin. The water is heated by solar panels on the roof backed up by gas.

The fields the yurts are in are managed for wildlife so the terrain is rough with long grass and natural springs so wet areas. Around the yurts and log cabins the grass is mown so games can be played on the grass.

The field has small streams and long grass for children to play in and explore with wooded areas. The smallholding is 34 acres so plenty of space to look around and meet the llamas, horses and chickens. Keep your eyes peeled for pheasants, rabbits and deer.

If it’s raining there are board games in kitchen. Drawing books and crayons. Painting and craft sessions can be organised.

Activities

There are plenty of walks and trails directly from the campsite – including a walk to Porfell Wildlife Park (01503 220211), an animal sanctuary with exotic animals from around the world. You could head to Bodmin Moor for more challenging walks or enjoy the beautiful coastal path leading down into coves and beaches. Looe and Polperro take you back in time with their interesting streets wandering down to the harbour and beaches. The Monkey Sanctuary (01503 262532) is just the other side of Looe and well worth a visit, set on the cliffs it is the atmospheric home to rescued monkeys with beautiful views and gardens. Or visit the nature reserve on Looe Island by boat.

Food & Drink

There are plenty of top places to eat and drink around Looe (and plenty with great live music too). For something a little different, Ocean Earth (01503 263080) serve great Thai food and there's also a Chinese (01503 264500) and, of course, fish and chips (01503 263091). In terms of pubs, the closest to the campsite is The Jubilee Inn (01503 220312) at Pelynt – excellent food for lunch and evening meals – while The Rashleigh Inn (‘the inn on the beach’; 01726 813991) at Polkerris has the best views. Rick Stein's restaurant and café (01841 532700) in Padstow is the best for fresh fish. For everyday supplies, the village of Lanreath has a community run shop and post office (01503 220997) selling local produce and everyday needs. It's within walking distance, although up a steep hill. For more major supplies there's a Spar in Pelynt (01503 220239), a Co-Op in Looe (01503 262249) or major supermarkets in Liskeard and Bodmin.

Family Friendly

Campfires. Stargazing from bed. Home comforts under canvas. No wonder yurts are the accommodation of choice in the Mongolian desert. And with an exotic wildlife park within walking distance, Enchanted Valley Yurts could be in a foreign land too were it not for the British weather.
