We loved our stay at Pheasant Cedar Yurt! The location was ideal, we felt like we were away from it all, it was very peaceful at the Yurt, yet the supermarket on the outside of Dartmouth was a short drive away. The Yurt was very comfortable and we enjoyed relaxing there and enjoying the view and the hot tub. The kids especially enjoyed the hot tub, and exploring the woods and fetching the logs for the hot tub from the store up the hill. We cooked or BBQ'd most nights and found it well equipped. The kids room was very compact but that didn't bother them at all. One thing to note, you really do need a robust yet not wide car here - the road down to the site is very thin and extremely steep (I wouldn't want to visit in the snow in our car!).
We enjoyed days out to Blackpool Sands (fine shingle, good cafe, beautiful spot, paddle board and kayak hire (great fun!)), Dartmouth (Beautiful, make sure you take the Castle Ferry - and the park and ride is very good), Totnes (Lovely!!), Slapton Sands (for the Sherman tank and Exercise Tiger memorial), Dartmoor [Badgers Holt (lovely vegan cream tea) and Canoteign Falls (beautiful waterfalll - though a hard climb)] and Coleton Fishacre NT (beautiful grounds, and lovely house, well worth short the car ferry over the Dart). If you're looking for Sandy beaches head in the direction of Salcombe, but ignore Sat Nav and take main roads where possible - there are some VERY tiny and difficult roads round there!). Totnes didn't look promising from the ring road, but was actually a wonderful town - the high street was beautiful and had the best range of shops and eateries I've seen - if you're looking for good deli's, butchers, bakers, zero waste etc head there. Dartmouth is lovely with a great range of shops and places to eat, we enjoyed fish and chips by the water front one evening. We much preferred the area to the west of the Dart, we found the towns on the other side to be too busy and commercial. There is still so much we haven't done there and would definitely come back. We found that even though it was August it didn't feel too crowded in the area.

Stunning location in a very peaceful woodland. Well equipped yurt which made it feel like home from home. Would have liked to have returned in the summer had it not been fully booked but will definitely return in the future. Thanks for a fantastic holiday and endless supply of wood for the hot tub that was included in the price which was a real bonus!!

We had the best holiday here! Set in such a beautiful location and near the beach too it was ideal for relaxing. The yurt was beautiful and we spent every evening in the hot tub and most days lying on the beach and swimming at the lovely Blackpool Sands. Really could not fault our stay at all. So happy we found this place.

We had a wonderful week at Pheasant Cedar Yurt - what a special place! The setting is so relaxing and the yurt so cosy with the wood fire and underfloor heating. We enjoyed sitting in the hot tub at night hearing the owls and enjoying the cedar scent of the trees. Would highly recommend it!

Amazingly well equipped. Clever use of space to have all you need.

fantastic yurt in a stunning location. Immaculatly presented with everything that you need . Only a 10 minute drive to the beautiful harbour with lots of great shops and places to eat. Would reccomend using the park and ride if going into the harbour Parking is quite limited. Plenty to do locally and the views are stunning, would definitely reccomend the boat ride down the river and a visit to the castle :)

Mrs Johnson March 2016
Thank you for a lovely place to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet. Was lovely sitting in the hot tub enjoying the owls and stars! I'm sure we will be back again soon!
Miss Pound March 2016
The yurt was a perfect getaway. It was a peaceful and tranquil setting.
The yurt is very spacious and provides you with everything you need; even dishwasher tablets!
The hot tub was great! It did take a lot longer to heat than the manual said due to it being so cold to start with; but it was totally worth it. Just make sure you stir throughly as the cold spots are awful if you get in without stirring properly!
Would definitely recommend to everyone! Perfect setting for a lovely getaway!
Thanks for building such a perfect building. It's something to be very proud of.
Mrs Goodchild February 2016
Amazing place, very spacious - enchanting quiet location. Fantastic place for a family holiday or for couples wishing to escape. Top quality fixtures, fittings and soft furnishings with luxurious linens and fabrics used throughout. Hot tub was a real treat, ensure you light it as soon as you can to maximise your use of it. We will definitely return at some point in the future.
Mr Watt February 2016
A beautiful and unique property in a really special location.
Mrs Brown February 2016
A truly amazing 4 days! We loved everything about our experience here. Cosy and homely and fun for the kids! My eldest son gave it a 10 out of 10! Bunk beds were brilliant, a great design. We didn't want to leave. It was even fun taking our stuff up in the wheel barrow, adds to the adventure. Highlight was listening to the Owls at night while in the hot tub, gazing at the stars! We were already planning our next visit while we were there.
Mrs Cramp January 2016
Wow! Amazing Spaces eat your heart out! This cedar yurt is gorgeous and the owners have put much thought into the detail of the layout. All fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality and the yurt provides a lovely warm and tranquil environment for a relaxing winter break, with the addition of a toasty wood burner to top it off.
Miss Honeysett January 2016
Pheasant Cedar Yurt just takes your breath away! Loved every minute of our stay, can not wait to return.
Miss Lloyd December 2015
An ideal get away that's outstandingly perfected to its surroundings. Fantastic area and a pleasure to have stayed in and experienced the joy of this stay.
Mr Payne December 2015
I would strongly reccomend this Yurt for families and couples alike. A great destination if you like Dartmouth.
Miss Ebanks November 2015
It was beautiful, the surroundings were gorgeous and the location was so peaceful. As it isn't a big holiday park it felt very private and the only noise was the swaying from the frees. A lovely, relaxing holiday and we'll definitely be back!
Mr Gray November 2015
The pheasant yurt was far better than we thought it would be. fixtures and fitting are of really good quality loved the time we spent there even though the weather wasn't that good will stay again
Mrs Jewell October 2015
Wow - what a fabulous place to stay. Pheasant is spectacular! Beautifully furnished and equipped with everything and more. The children loved transporting our luggage in the huge wheelbarrow up to Pheasant. The woodland around is great for adventures, we even found a little den. The beds were so comfortable and it was so nice being able to see the stars through the roof-top window. The cedar wood-fired hot tub really topped off this very luxury glamping holiday - it was amazing to sit out under the stars in the woodland in the warmth of the hot tub and listen to the woodland animals all around. Such peace and tranquillity - we feel very lucky to have experienced the fabulous Pheasant Cedar Yurt. Our thanks to the owners, for creating such an outstanding setting for a unique holiday. Just wished we could have stayed longer!
Mr Busby September 2015
We absolutely loved our holiday in the enchanting yurt. It was absolute luxury and pure bliss to be away from the crowds. This was not Glamping, as everything we needed was included in this beautiful space.
