Venture down the narrow hedge-lined lane to Little Coombe Cedar Yurts and you will be delighted once you drive in. A shared private parking-area for all four of the yurts has wheelbarrows to trundle your luggage along to Woodpecker. Furnished in a bright contemporary style, it is so very stylish with such a lot of space for everyone – the yurt is eight metres in diameter, divided into sitting, bedroom (with king-size bed), dining and fully-fitted kitchen areas. There is also an en suite shower-room and separate cloakroom, while an entrance hall/corridor links to the smaller yurt with a triple bunk bedroom and its own shower-room with WC and wash-basin. Under-floor heating and a wood-burner guarantee you will not be cold whatever the elements throw at you outside. WiFi is available, and inside Woodpecker has a TV, Blu-ray DVD player, Bluetooth sound system, electric cooker, microwave, fridge with ice-box and a dishwasher; there is even a washing machine tucked into a cupboard with an iron and ironing board. We think that apart from cooking or sleeping, and even the former can be done on the barbecue outside, you will spend most of the time on the large deck, soaking up the woodland setting and views or gently relaxing in the bubbling warm water of the wood-fired hot tub. You just won't want to go home.
You need have no worries about this gorgeous and very unusual glamping property. Equipped with everything, including the kitchen sink! You have all the benefits normally found in a cottage plus the added excitement of being in a very glamorous yurt, albeit clad and roofed with cedar. The large deck is quite amazing and no doubt where you will all unwind after a day exploring the local area. South Devon has so much to offer; glorious tree-lined estuaries, some fantastic beaches, Blackpool Sands in particular, pretty higgledy piggledly thatched cottages in tiny villages. as well as historic towns such as Dartmouth and Totnes which are well worth exploring. Also do try to visit Greenway, Agatha Christie's house which has now been totally restored by the National Trust. You can get the foot ferry across to the estate from nearby Dittisham. You can hire a motor boat, sailing boat, paddle boards and kayaks locally, and the Owners can arrange adult mountain bikes for hire too. And then when the day is done you know you can relax in the wood-fired hot tub (the water does take at least a couple of hours to warm up initially), or snuggled up around the wood-burner enjoying this outstanding setting.
