Blackdown Yurts: Buzzard Yurt (centre) is located at the end of the yurt field in a slightly raised position

General

  • Yurts with kitchenettes and barbecues on an eco-friendly smallholding
  • Jurassic Coast beaches and fossil hunting within 45 minutes' drive
  • Bat-spotting night walks on site; cosy shared kitchen and lounge

Bat fan? Flit over to Blackdown Yurts, where the hills are alive with (subsonic) squeaking…

This eco-friendly smallholding on the edge of Devon’s Blackdown Hills is surrounded by woodland that's home to several species of bat including Daubenton’s and pipistrelles – you won't spy them by day, but you may well do when they flit over to the ponds to feed after dark.

Best chance of sightings? Equipped with bat detectors, your hosts will happily take you on a night walk (subject to weather and availability) to meet the winged wood dwellers. And the action doesn’t stop at sunrise either, as the place has buzzards and swallows swooping overhead all day and the odd shy deer peeping about too.

This site is kind to the wildlife as well as being surrounded by it: the water comes from a natural spring, the lighting is solar, the toilets are composting and wherever possible the buildings around the place are made from natural, reclaimed or recycled materials.

Traditional Mongolian yurts are the order of the day here: roomy and cosy, with woodburners inside and barbecues outside. Each one is kitted out with a small kitchen and there’s a grander culinary arrangement in the communal yurt, where nomads seeking the odd home comfort can sink into sofas, charge up essential electrical devices and play board games.

Please note

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    We felt an immediate sense of peace and calm as we arrived at Blackdown Yurts. Nestled in the green valley, the yurts blend into the landscape. Beautifully crafted with quality woodwork inside and outside. The facilities, camp kitchens, fire pits and eco-centric bathrooms & loos are very well thought out in detail. Hosts are friendly, helpful and welcoming. It was wonderful being so close with nature and away from the whirr & trappings of modern living. We very much hope to visit again next year!

    The bedding was lovely and soft with the log burner providing a toasty touch too! The general cleanliness was excellent! I would highly recommend coming to stay here, you will not be disappointed! Phones can be charged in the main barn and the individual yurt fridge freezer was excellent! We will be back for sure!

    Disliked: 

    More lighting needed in the yurts, but easily fixed by bringing a good lantern!
    And a power socket (outside) in or near to the yurt would be useful.

Local attractions

If you’re all fired up by your wildlife haven stay, you’ll have a fine feathered time at Yarak Birds of Prey Experience, 20 minutes’ drive away; book in advance to spend some close-up time with the kestrels, hawks and golden eagles.

Those more moved by earth-movers and excavators can expect rides and rumbles aplenty on the assorted heavy plant machinery at Diggerland Devon (15 minutes) while a similar distance away (and utterly the opposite type of gig), Children of the Forest take kids and parents on woodland quests involving foraging and tracking, den building and campfire cooking.

Whichever stretch you’re heading for, and whatever you’re intending to do on it, the coast is about 45 minutes’ drive away. Exmouth is the sandiest, and therefore most suitable for bucket and spade activities; Sidmouth’s favoured by rockpool explorers and surfers, and the bit between Lyme Regis and Charmouth is a magnet for fossil hunters.

If you haven’t managed to extract an ichthyosaur, visit the one at Charmouth Heritage Centre, a shark/fish/lizard-like beast chipped out of the cliffs by a local expert in early 2016; further fossilised finds can be perused at the Dinosaurland and Lyme Regis Museums.

Brought your boots? Link up with the South West Coast Path for clifftop rambles anywhere between Exmouth and Lyme Regis, or head into the Blackdown Hills for higher wanderings, taking in pastures and woodland, deep valleys, ancient ruins and abandoned mines.
