Might you like being on your lovely ownsome and knowing no-one else is around? So you and/or partner can snore with impunity, be as noisy as you like (ahem), walk around as nature intended and with not a stitch more, or let the kids shriek as loudly as they want without incurring glares from other guests? We bring you the lone dwelling at Albion Farm Yurt, on a Cornish farm on the edge of Mylor near Falmouth.
The owners of this superbly solitary yurt have perched it as an environmentally-friendly alternative to a holiday cottage, in a southwest-facing field and with easy access to the local village (although fret not, the yurt is secluded enough that no-one will see you prancing around in your birthday suit).
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.
Unlike many yurt sites, campfires are allowed and positively encouraged here, and cooking and eating equipment is even provided for you (a fridge and freezer is 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. If you're part of a large group or a couple of families, the owners will happily allow a few extra tents alongside the yurt.
Albion Farm is ten minutes’ walk from Mylor village, with the Lemon Arms pub, shops, butcher and fishmonger; the waterside thirteenth century and rather superb Pandora Inn is a 15-minute walk from your pitch along a creekside path, and the harbour to gaze enviously at yachts is nicely handy too.
Please note: the yurt can accommodate a maximum of 4 adults and 1 infant. Additional guests are able to pitch their own tent next to the yurt; please ensure you enter the total number of guests both inside and outside the yurt to your booking.

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pit.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
