West Kellow Yurts: Sea view from the Blue Jay Cowboy wagon

General

  • Cornish glamping with spectacular views, half a mile from Polperro
  • Hammock, picnic bench, outdoor seating and firepit on each unit
  • Eco-friendly with solar power, natural spring and wildlife pond

What a smashing little site is West Kellow Yurts in Cornwall, 10 minutes' drive from Looe and set on a hillside between Polperro and Lansallos. (Before you read any further, so look at the site pics…)

You might dither over deciding your fave feature of this scenic setting: the splendid countryside and sea views (really, look at the site pics), or the thoughtful touches put into the glamping accommodation placed on a nine-acre field of an organic farm. Want your own hammock to sway gently in the Cornish breeze by day or look at the stars by night? A campfire tripod, Dutch oven, barbecue and kebab stewers on each pitch? Own personal picnic bench and outdoor seating area for communal banquets? Done, done and done.

Matt and team have set everything up here so guests can start seriously relaxing the minute they arrive: a welcome pack will await and all accommodation has kitchen areas and an outdoor firepit. There's also a well-equipped communal kitchen on site with gas hobs, fridge freezer, microwave and coffee room, in the amenities block which comes with a luxury and modern wetroom with toilets and hot showers.

Also on site, wanderers will find a most pretty wildlife pond – again, have a look at the site pics…

Please note

There is no staffed reception area and there may not always be someone on site, so please contact the site when you are on your way with your estimated time of arrival and we will be there to welcome you. You must provide your booking ID.

    It was amazing. We stayed in one of the yurts and even decided to take an extra day. Everything is so well thought through on site. Great shower and poop ammenities, nice and tidy kitchens, and the views are breathtaking. It's the most relaxing place we've ever been to. All of cornwall is accessible by car from here. There's even chickens whose eggs can be brekfast. Man, i tell ya, that's some proper "free range" right thurrrrr.... And the fellas who run the place are cool and knowledgable and there to help. Shout out to Dan - you, sir, - ROCk!

    Great location. Matt met us as we arrived, and explained where everything was; facilities and local area. We stayed in the shepherd's hut which was cute and perfectly adequate for our stay. The facilities were good and clean and plenty of space. Although the tap in the hut is not plumbed in, there was a water barrel just outside the hut.
    Fire pit outside and log burner inside.
    My dog loved all the space!
    The lack of light pollution is amazing for star gazing and so peaceful.
    Good night's sleep and hot showers.
    Great place to reset and recharge.

Thanks Karen. Being able to walk into Polperro is always going to be a strong reason why guests book with us I think. We aim to maintain the sites best feature as a peaceful and pleasant retreat. We have recently fitted water foot pumps into the shepherds hut and star gazer hut so you don't have to fill up from the barrel of water outside as well. It's a bit more convenient if you just want to wash your hands quickly. We will start to leave handbooks out so guests can see which formation of stars are where. There is a good app on your phone for this as well.

Thanks guys for the kind comments. Yes, there is a central campfire area where guests can socialise if they wish to. However, if you want to just spend some time to catch up with your partner/friends, guests can enjoy the firepits which are found inside each enclosure. It's great as you can have the privacy/shelter from the bamboo screens if it's windy, but you can also move them outside the enclosure if you fancy a nap in the sunshine on a sun lounger. We are hoping to add giant jenga, quoits, boules and a pizza oven to the existing footy golf, bat n ball games and swingball. Guests are welcome to cook their own pizza or the staff will offer a few slices for free.

From the manager...

A glass of wine in a sun lounger with a sea view is one of my favorite things to do after I've finished for the day. Typically being around 75 metres apart from others, makes you feel like you haven't been packed in like sardines as well, which I think is important. I think the willow enclosures do give you a charming unique experience, as well as shelter from the wind.

Average weekend away. Overpriced for what it is!11/09/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Sky lark yurt
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We stayed in a Yurt for 2 nights which was lovely. There is zero electricity in the Yurt but you’re provided with a few tea light candles to light so I recommend taking a torch like we did thankfully. It had a double bed, chest of draws and a log burner inside with a basket of logs for the burner.
    The shower cubicles were fairly clean and always restocked. The shower was surprisingly nice!
    Dogs are accepted too!

    Disliked: 

    No electricity in the Yurt therefore had to keep food in a shared fridge (which wasn’t overly clean) along with other customers food. I would recommend bringing your own plates, bowls, cups etc as there isn’t a great deal there provided. And also a power bank for your phone otherwise you have to leave it unattended in the shared kitchen.
    When we arrived there wasn’t a reception to report to, I rang on arrival and a guy said he could see us and pointed us in the right direction. He eventually came over and gave us a couple tips about different walks for the dog and pubs etc. He seemed pleasant. We didn’t see this guy again the whole 2 nights we stayed. In fact, we didn’t see any staff.
    There are about 4 Yurts and 2 horse carts in total on this huge field. Seems like such a waste and so much more can be done with the place, it just looked and felt empty.
    Wouldn’t advise coming here with small children as there’s minimal facilities. More a couple thing to do but even we were unsure of what to make of it! The location isn’t great, very high up and the roads to get to it are like countryside tracks for one car only!
    We both felt like it was very overpriced for what we got unfortunately.

From the manager...

Hi guys. Yes, yurts aren't for everyone. Most people seem to like the candle light, switching off their electrical equipment and just relax in a sun lounger/hammock in peaceful location. Power packs are a good idea tho. Camp fires, bbqs, a glass of bubbles and the sounds of birds tweeting is heaven for some and boring for others. We often get complemented on the fact we have lots of space as well as we have chosen not to 'pack our guests in' to create that busy l non empty look you require. And no reception! That's one of our best features as well! 😂. Who wants to que when you arrive somewhere! But thanks for saying I seemed nice. Myself or Archie often greet guests, a few quick pointers and then we are on the end of the phone, ideally via tx msg if you need anything. Other wise we assume all is well. I think if you want high stimulus (I call it noise), then perhaps maybe a caravan park with music and arcades etc are more suitable for you. But the 1st restaurant is only a 15 minute walk down the road and this leads to all the family run shops. So in the whole, we are aiming to be a peaceful relaxing pleasant base to allow you to explore the local area or just unwind. Matt 👍

Local attractions

The narrow winding streets of the village of Polperro, a half-mile walk across the field and down a lane from West Kellow Yurts include several pubs (four with beer gardens) which often have live music and performances in the summer months.

If you're in Polperro in June, potter along to the Polperro Festival; if you're in village any other time of year, potter along to the Polperro Heritage Museum of Smuggling and Fishing (aarrr): you may already know that both snuggling and fishing have their place in Cornish history…

There's loads more to see within easy driving distance from your hammock whether you want a secluded cove, popular surfing spot, the walks of the South West Coast Path or well-known Cornish attractions like the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, both nearby.

Looe and Fowey, both harbour towns, are 10 and 20 minutes away respectively; Fowey via the passenger ferry from Mevagissey. At Looe, look for the trawlers on the quay (pic alert) and take a boat trip out from the beach to spy the sharks – you can hike the 12 miles of the South West Coast Path from here to Fowey if you fancy it…

Or get riled up at Adrenalin Quarry at Menheniot, 'throwing people off cliffs since 2009', where you can also zoom over the lake in a zipwire and take the Giant Swing ride – extra stomach possibly required.

Must see

  • Eden Project (10.4 miles)
  • Lost Gardens of Heligan (13.0 miles)
  • National Marine Aquarium (17.8 miles)
