We’re coming over all poetic. But how can we not when writing about a lone yurt in a southwest-facing field on a Cornish farm? We’d probably be breaking into verse before we’d even unpacked.
The poetic pitch is Albion Farm Yurt, in a secluded corner of on a smallholding at Mylor near Falmouth, where the owners have perched it as an environmentally-friendly alternative to a holiday cottage. It’s all rather clever really – the yurt is handmade on Bodmin Moor using a traditional Mongolian yurt design and coppiced wood, with woodburning stove and gas cooker inside. The sides can be peeled back to let the air in, and there’s a roof light too for yurt-based stargazing. And it’s all surrounded by trees among a large grassy area and local wildlife, which means staying here is back to nature but with stacked with home comforts. Something that also makes us feel a bit poetic…
Cooking/eating irons are provided and there’s a fridge and freezer in a building close to hand. You’ll also have your own cabin right next to the yurt, with camping loo, shower, basin, electric lighting and a towel rail. Albion Farm is ten minutes’ walk from Mylor village, where there’s the Lemon Arms pub, shops, butcher and fishmonger; the waterside thirteenth century Pandora Inn is a 15 minute walk from your pitch, along a creekside path.
