Welcome to Yurtcamp Devon. Set in 40 acres of woodland are 20 contemporary yurts. Most of the yurts are sited in small groups, and for those seeking greater solitude some are sited individually. All are sited in beautiful woodland settings with wonderful walks on your doorstep.
A short walk from your yurt is a new fresh clean amenity block with separate male, female and disabled facilities including toilets, hot showers, hair dryers and mirrors.
Few modern campsites allow any sort of fire but we love a crackling of a camp fire and the smell of wood smoke in the air: it is an essential part of the Yurtcamp experience. We positively encourage you to make a fire in one of our fire pits and enjoy the primal satisfaction it offers. Many a tale is told and memories made around the camp fire.
There is plenty to do at Yurtcamp with the emphasis on family fun and plenty of relaxation, plus our assurance that we operate a low impact, sustainable development with minimum use of non renewable energy sources.
We also have a woodland management programme and work has been carried out to enhance the bio diversity of the site including the provision of bird and bat boxes, as well as continued monitoring of the areas protected species. Yurtcamp is located on the edge and in an area of ancient woodland and as such is designated a county wildlife site due to wide variety of flora and fauna.

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 make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
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.
