Owl Cedar yurt is set in beautiful, peaceful woodland. Absolutely glorious sunny mornings, perfect for breakfast outside. Very impressed with the high quality furnishings and the cedar wood construction. Lots to do nearby, Greenway, Coleton Fishacre, Blackpool Sands (which was not only beautiful but relaxing and not overcrowded) and Dartmouth. We used the hot tub every day; no problems heating the water and provided a lovely focus for each evening. The only negative for us was the amount of space in the bunk room, which was a bit cramped for three teenagers. We are missing the view and the sheep!
Mrs Rowe March 2020
We had such a great break. The property and location was perfect. We heard the hooting owls during the night and the views from the terrace were beautiful even when it rained. The property was very clean and the underfloor heating kept the place very warm and cosy. The space was a lot bigger than we expected too. We hope to return again for a longer stay.
The birthday card and gift to our daughter from Classic Cottages was a lovely personal touch. She loves Owls and was frilled to receive the Baby Owls book, thank you!
Miss Marfell March 2020
Amazing stay! Highly recommend, we found it amazing, so private, so quiet, clean & relaxing! 5* stay in the woods! ?? Jessica.
Mrs Flower August 2019
What a fabulous place to stay! We live locally but wanted a special place to go for a long weekend before our eldest starts school and this certainly was amazing. We especially all loved the hot tub at the end of each day and the feeling being in the forest - it was truly magical and we would love to come back again.
Mr Wilkinson August 2019
A slice of heaven!
Mrs Grose July 2019
This is a beautiful peaceful retreat set amongst quiet, naturally inhabited private land . The yurt, which really only resembles a traditional yurt in its shape, is a cleverly handcrafted wooden structure that ensures being at one with nature whilst still enjoying the luxuries of modern living. The wood fired hot tub is an extra luxury to be enjoyed all through the day but particularly on cold nights under the stars. The yurts are perfectly situated to enjoy the stunning beaches of the South Hams as well as the delights of Dartmoor and nearby Totnes, Dartmouth and Ashburton. My stay here was magical and peaceful. The owners were on hand if needed but otherwise I was totally left alone to enjoy these beautiful retreats. ( I had booked 4 days in Woodpecker then stayed for a following a week as I loved it so much, in Owl.) Woodpecker has a more open aspect, Owl is slightly more concealed within the trees. I would return to either in a heartbeat
Mr Klaess July 2019
Thank you very much! We really enjoyed our visit in this besutiful, quiekt and comortable accomodation! It was overwhelming!
Miss Blackwell June 2019
We had a really relaxing stay and would love to go back at some point. It was in a great location.
Mrs Kerr June 2019
This is the second time we have stayed in the owl yurt with our three children and we all absolutely love it and it was a joy to go back! It’s so comfortable, the beds and showers are lovely and the hot tub is just a great way to relax in the evening, under the stars listening to the owls ?? love, love, love!! Can’t wait to go back!
Mrs Bright May 2019
Breathtaking yurt makes you feel like you are in a treehouse. Beautifully furnished and immaculately maintained. Kids will love the bunk beds and adults will love waking with the sun through the glass rooftop. Will definitely book again as so much yet to see in the area.
Ms Hodge April 2019
Can’t recommend highly enough, exceeded expectations, will be booking again !
Mr Spencer April 2019
We had a lovely relaxing time at the Owl Cedar Yurt re-energising us as a family.
Miss Sparkes December 2018
couldnt of asked for a better place to relax! This was the second time we have been to the yurt and it was just as amazing as the first time! Couldn’t recommend this place enough.
Mrs Callaghan December 2018
We relaxed almost immediately upon arriving at Owl yurt
Miss Hiney October 2018
So peaceful and relaxing and the hot tub is wonderful
Mrs Webb August 2018
Owl yurt is an amazingly tucked away retreat surrounded by trees and wildlife including deer, buzzards, owls and butterflies. The yurt has amazing facilities of a high quality. The wood fired hot tub was a treat adding to the woodland adventure being able to light the fire and wait patiently. Location close to Dartmouth meant there was plenty to do. A thoroughly lovely place to stay.
Mrs Turner July 2018
The Cedar Yurts are wonderful...by far the best place we've stayed at in the uk - its pure luxury. The decor, the little touches, and the whole layout worked wonderfully for a family of 5. The area surprised me as I was not expecting to fall in love with it all. I wish they had a chain of these yurts all over the country - I only ever want to stay here!! The hot tub is such a magical addition to the whole experience of this holiday! I wish I could keep this little gem a hidden secret, as they book up quickly, but its not fair, maybe if everyone knows about this place then the standards of others will go up too. Thank you for creating this lovely place.
Mrs Kerr June 2018
Beautiful yurt and very comfortable we had everything that we could possibly need and the hot tub under the stars in the evening was just magical ??
Mrs Wallace May 2018
We had a great holiday at the yurt. The photos were very accurate and gave a good overview of the yurt, they didn't give any false impressions before booking. The facilities were great, all the little extras made the holiday feel very luxurious such as having all cleaning equipment provided, bin bags, dishwasher tablets, hand soap by all the sinks. Being allowed to help yourself to logs, which we used for the hot tub, was a really lovely touch and again we felt this made us feel welcome and a luxury. The yurt feels high end spec beautifully decorated, comfortable and cosy. Being right amongst the trees and wildlife was so enchanting. We feel so lucky to have discovered this accommodation. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought and love into the yurts which is evident throughout and have created a perfect holiday accommodation experience.
Mrs Durance April 2018
Lovely accommodation in a beautiful location.
Mrs Webster March 2018
We absolutely loved coming here with our three year old. It was the most perfect holiday and totally magical.
Dr Kilner February 2018
Amazing location, and very well-equipped. Peaceful, immaculate, imaginatively designed. Hot-tub a delight, and the sound of an owl in nearby trees just the icing on the cake of a starlit night sitting in warm water with only the breeze for company.
Reply from Classic Cottages
It certainly sounds like you enjoyed your glamping experience. How lovely that you were able to hear the owls whilst relaxing in the hot tub; it is a lovely tranquil setting. We hope you'll come back soon. Alison, Customer Support.
Mrs Fackrell December 2017
A perfect escape in a wonderful and characterful setting. We visited the yurts with friends over New Year and we all loved it. We will be back!
Miss Best November 2017
Perfect location , perfect place to stay , everything you could want for a perfect weekend or longer holiday . So cosy in the winter and I can see it being amazing in the summer with the large decked area . I have never seen so many stars , loved every second .
Mrs Richards May 2017
We had a fantastic time staying in the Yurt, everything was immaculate and high spec .
Mrs Welch April 2017
Absolutely amazing holiday loved stargazing in the evenings. The wood fired hot tub is fab nothing better than sat in the hot tub listening to the owls hooting. We enjoyed visiting Greenway and has a fab lunch at Dartmouth castle we will definitely be back!!
Mr Fry February 2017
excellent location, modern clean and fresh throughout. Wood fired hot tub is perfect, takes a while to heat on first night, but every use after that took 20-30 mins. Location is perfect with no traffic noise etc, we did not see anyone during our stay, which suited us great. Would definately reccomend and stay again.
Mr Carroll February 2017
A group of 4 of us stayed here in February and had a really chilled and relaxing time. Would recommend to anyone who wants a high standard and brilliant place to stay for a long weekend or week. The hot tub was fantastic and the wood fired stove inside kept us nice and cosy in the winter night. Would recommend this to anyone and would definatly come back. It is close to Dartmouth and local beaches and it is in a peaceful setting. 5 star place.
Mr Hickling October 2016
A stunning yurt in an excellent location. The yurt has so many quirks, from the hot tub to the log fire. The interior design is of an exceptional standard and the skylight really tops this all off. Couldn't recommend it any higher.
Mr Tatham October 2016
A superb family get away. Nothing beats sitting in the wood burning hot tub whilst watching nature!!
Mrs Piper September 2016
The owners had thought of everything you would need for a perfect holiday . We had a most enjoyable time in a beautiful yurt in beautiful surroundings . We can't wait to visit the next time
Mrs Litviniuc July 2016
Pricey in the holiday season, but please go ahead and book. Best rural holiday we have had so far! Everything was perfect!
Mr Webb June 2016
It was a high quality yurt that provided everything needed. In a beautiful setting.
Miss Anderson June 2016
Beautiful I had very high hopes for this holiday. Your description seem to promise a magical tree top holiday surrounded by nature , with in a short drive to a busy port side town, well it was all of the above and more you truly feel like your in another world it was the best holiday in Devon we have had. I didn't hear I'm board once from any of the kids aged 16,9 and 2. Wonderful Thankyou
Mrs Jacob January 2016
Amazing place, great romantic mini break to celebrate our first wedding anniversary . The yurt had great attention to detail and loved the extra touches of tea, washing /dishwasher liquids and shower gel. Really hope to visit again
Mr Scarratt January 2016
We had a lovely holiday, beautiful place and surroundings. Fantastic experience, would recommend. Loved it.
Mrs Webb January 2016
An amazing space with top of the range appliances, equipment and furnishings, Owl is in a very peaceful location with great walks to Dartmouth and Dittisham from your door. Perfect!
Miss George November 2015
The cottage was absolutely gorgeous - everything about it from the location to the decor and furnishing. Such a peaceful break and a great chill out holiday. The log burner was a lovely cosey touch to the yurt. Unfortunately we didn't get to use our hot tub due to the weather but it would've been a perfect end to the day relaxing in there.
Mrs Porter November 2015
We absolutely loved our stay and can't wait for our next visit. We were a little concerned about the log fired hot tub as in the past we have always had the usual plastic bubbling variety but it was so easy (and fun) to do and so much more comfortable to use. We are total converts, from now on it's log fired cedar wood hot tubs only for us.
Mr Foord November 2015
Owl surpassed all of our expectations. The fit and finish was perfect, the location was ideal and the site is brilliantly laid out; resulting in us feeling secluded and private despite the other yurt.
I also appreciated that we were left to our own devices and whilst I'm sure someone would have been on hand should we have needed, the info pack gave us all that we needed and it really did feel 'ours' for the duration of our holiday.
By far the most relaxing holiday we've had in some while and whilst in close proximity to Dartmouth we were also quite content with stargazing in the hot tub and reading a book by the wood burner.
Fingers crossed for a return visit in 2016!
Mrs Gray October 2015
Magical setting in a peaceful wooded valley. Hot tub great fun and the decking was an outdoor room at any time of the day. Beautifully furnished and so comfortable. Can't wait to go back.
Mrs Gomm October 2015
Lovely rural relaxing get away in magical accommodation and setting.
Mrs Jewell October 2015
We had the most amazing holiday at Owl. We all absolutely loved our luxury glamping experience. The yurt is beautifully furnished and fully equipped with everything you will need and more! The underfloor heating kept us toasty and warm and the wood-burner added to the overall ambience. The beds were so comfortable and the children really loved the quirky triple bunk beds. The wood-fired cedar hot tub was a very special treat, the most magical experience in woodland. We spent most of our time on the deck enjoying the peace and tranquillity during the last week of October, it really was a very special place to chill and enjoy the woodland around. Would highly recommend a stay, we wished we had booked for longer!
Mrs Kau October 2015
Fantastic facilities. Top drawer. Meticulous detail to the finishings. Very cozy, quiet feel to the location. Kids loved the 'tree house' , comfy bunk beds and even the apple trees in the grounds. Will definitely aim to be back next year!
Miss Smith September 2015
Really really enjoyed out stay! stayed there with my boyfriend to celebrate my 21st for a long weekend and it was amazing! Would most definitely stay here again as we absolutely loved it! It was so quirky and cosy and it was an ultimate "wow" factor when we walked inside! Location was fab as we were only a short drive from the main town/local pub/supermarket. Lots to do in the area also! akreday recommended to family and friends, truly a 5* holiday!
Mrs Ditchburn September 2015
Very high quality accomodation, a perfect getaway in a beautiful part of the country
Mrs Tatham August 2015
A wonderful place to stay. Very family friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to feel indulged but still in touch with nature!
Mr Cairns July 2015
Fantastic place to stay. Lovely setting, and a great location to explore this beautiful part of England. Definitely recommend.
Mrs Miller July 2015
We were lucky enough to be the first people to stay in the yurt and when booking there were only drawings of the property to view online, I am so glad we took the decision to give it a go. Owl Cedar Yurt is beautiful inside and out and it is set in peaceful, secluded surroundings. The owners have provided everything you could possibly need and they were extremely helpful in answering any queries we had. The yurt is furnished to a high standard and very comfortable, and sitting in the hot tub looking at the stars is the perfect end to the day.
