Set in their own field, our yurts offer stunning views across Bodmin moor. Look up at the night sky through the roof light, open the door to allow the moorland air in, or snuggle up around the wood burning stove.
Using a design that has served the nomadic tribes of Mongolia for centuries, our Yurts have been made by a local craftsman from timber grown on Bodmin Moor. These vaulted tents have an intricate lattice for walls and steam bent roof poles to give them their distinctive shape. Book your Yurt here.
