A traditional Mongolian yurt in its own private and secluded setting on Dartmoor, with your own rustic kitchen, compost toilet and wood fired shower. Far reaching rural views, a babbling stream, a swing, friendly horses and all day sunshine. Enjoy total privacy in an idyllic rural setting.

The space

Come and stay in a traditional Mongolian yurt with beautiful hand painted poles and door. The yurt is warm and cosy with rugs and lanterns and woodburner. There is a double bed, double futon and single futon. A few steps away is the fully equipped rustic kitchen and dining area. There is also a firepit for barbecuing or just sitting watching the flames! We provide wood for all fires, including the wood fired shower. There are also several very friendly horses next to the yurt (but separated by a fence!)

Guest access

You have your own private area right next to your yurt but you are also free to wander around our 26 acre farm, explore the woodland and say hello to the horses and sheep. You can also access open moorland directly from the top field and walk to the nearest tors and down to the river for wild swimming!

Interaction with guests

We will be on hand to help if you need us but are also happy to leave you to enjoy the peace and tranquillity.

Other things to note

There is no electricity at the yurt. We provide candles for your lanterns and wood for your woodburner, open fire and your wood-fired shower. Staying at Sunshine Yurt gives you the perfect opportunity to unwind, de-stress and get back to nature!

A truly unique place to stay allowing a chance to be both at one with Nature but in great comfort in the yurts. The showers are great fun having to light a fire to heat the water - simple but very functional and allows time to relax rather than dash in and out of a shower with hot water on demand. Beautiful setting and walking on the moors behind is wonderful with all the expansive views, wild ponies, etc. It rained for our stay but the yurts were dry and cosy so don't let British weather put you off!

An absolute gem hidden away on Dartmoor. We stayed as a family with children aged 8 months to 14 years and every one of us loved every moment. The yurt is absolutely beautiful, cosy and clean and felt really special having us all as a family sharing the same space. The rustic kitchen is actually not that rustic and brilliantly equipped, the wood fired shower is fantastic and the composting toilet clean and hygienic. It really felt like every need had been considered. The ponies in the field were a huge hit with our daughters, we loved the campfire and toasting our marshmallows and the peace and quiet was amazing - just the babbling of the brook and bird song! It feels like a magical place perfect for getting away for quality time and recharging you batteries. We loved it!

Wendy and Larry were great and very welcoming! We absolutely loved this place - to have such seclusion and peace was really refreshing. The kids loved it here and made friends with the horses , their highlight was the tractor trailer ride! Going back to basics was made easy by the set up and everything being provided. Loved the shower! The yurt itself was so beautifully decorated and made extremely comfortable. We cannot recommend the place more highly!!
