Devon - Dartmoor

Dartmoor is an area of moorland in south Devon, England. Protected by National Park status as Dartmoor National Park, it covers 954 square kilometres (368 sq mi).
The granite which forms the uplands dates from the Carboniferous Period of geological history.

The moorland is capped with many exposed granite hilltops known as tors, providing habitats for Dartmoor wildlife. The highest point is High Willhays, 621 m (2,037 ft) above sea level. The entire area is rich in antiquities and archaeology.

Dartmoor is managed by the Dartmoor National Park Authority, whose 22 members are drawn from Devon County Council, local district councils and Government.
Parts of Dartmoor have been used as military firing ranges for over 200 years. The public are granted extensive land access rights on Dartmoor (including restricted access to the firing ranges) and it is a popular tourist destination.

Yurtcamp

Tel: 01626 824666 / 07768 665544

Yurtcamp Devon is the ultimate glamorous camping, or ‘glamping’, yurt holiday experience for those who seek the simplicity of living under canvas without giving up the quality and comfort of more conventional holidays.

We have twenty contemporary yurts of two sizes set in forty acres of beautiful Devon woodland. The smaller yurts are ideal for couples and the larger yurts ideal for up to six to accommodate family and friends. Each yurt has a log burner and is fully equipped for cooking, sleeping and relaxing in and has its own outdoor fire pit offering the facility for barbeques. As we don’t allow dogs on site your sausages are safe!

“The lovely yurts, the fire pits, the really comfortable bed, the café bar and the helpfulness of everyone exceeded all our expectations”.

Most of our yurts are sited in small groups offering a pleasant village atmosphere whilst allowing guests their own space. But for those seeking more solitude, we have yurts sited remotely in a tranquil woodland setting.

The overall interior effect is one of greater space and comfort than that offered by more conventional camping yet keeping that special outdoors camping feel.

Our yurts are designed and manufactured by us to a very high standard giving a fresher and spacious version of the more traditional models. With their beautiful, large glazed domes they are light and airy giving the feeling of being part of the great outdoors.

On site we have two farm animal pens, a games field, a zip wire, a woodland adventure course, a tennis court and children’s play areas plus our excellent café bar, The Wood Café, serving a wide variety of food and drink from breakfast through to dinner.
