September 2020

Enjoyed a most relaxing stay in Woodpecker yurt, one of Cedar Yurts near Dittisham. Sadly the weather was atrocious for October, but the yurt was really cosy, and the views spectacular - even through torrential rain! Would thoroughly recommend as a romantic getaway for two, although there is a room with a triple bunk beds where you could stack the kids!

July 2020

Wonderful holiday. Would highly recommend.

This was without doubt the nicest self catering accommodation we have ever used - and we’ve used a lot! Really beautiful setting, so peaceful & enjoyed the hot tub. Everything we could have wished for & more, it way exceeded our expectations & I’m already recommending the Cedar Yurts & Classic to friends. Thank you so much.

Good location, very clean but has a very noisy boiler that will wake you up and keep you awake.

The yurts are set In a tranquil secluded area with a stream and fields and plenty of wildlife including the lovely sound of the owls at night. The yurt s are fully equipped with everything you need and are done tastefully and to a high standard. The veiws are beautiful from the front verander and hidden in the corner is a lovely relaxing wood fired hot tub (Lovely with a glass of wine and the sounds of the owls and the veiws of the twinkling sky). We stayed in pheasant last time and woodpecker this time both yurts same exceptional standard !!!! Little piece of heaven and well worth the stay !!!!

Woodpecker Yurt was absolutely stunning. It's exactly as pictured and set in a beautiful dip in the countryside. It was so peaceful and having the,hot tub to relax and listen to the birds was wonderful ( listen and see if you can hear the Teat owl!! As my husband tells me it's the most common of the owls!! Yes I fell for it) Book it as you won't be disappointed.

Our second visit to these lovely yurts was even better than our first .. The location, facilities and overall warm feel it gives you to stay there will no doubt have us coming back a third time. Such a wonderful holiday.

March 2018

We had a fantastic week at the yurt. Thoroughly enjoyed by kids and adults equally. The yurt itself is beautifully finished and had everything you could possibly need. There is loads to do in the local area with woodlands adventure park and crabbing at Dittisham being highlights for the kids. We hope to return!

February 2018

We had a marvellous stay. The property has a real eye for detail and it feels like you are staying in a glorious tree house. We had woodpecker which we felt is best location as in same level as car park and wood store. Great rate too!

The Yurts are simply a fabulous place to relax

July 2017

Great relaxing weekend away if you need to get away from the city. It was very rejuvenating...

July 2017

Woodpecker Yurt is close to and level with the car park and ideal for us whereas the other yurts were accessed by a steep slope. This was one of the most comfortable and stunning properties we have ever stayed in. The quality of the fixtures, fittings and equipment was superb. The outside environment was lovely too with wild flowers and trees to attract bees and butterflies and a great view.

June 2017

Brilliant holiday, Woodpecker yurt exceeds expectations. We had a fantastic, relaxing break in the most serene setting. The kids loved the hot tub too!

May 2017

Beautiful location. Yurt was decorated and furnished to a very high standard we really really enjoyed our stay and would recommended to others and stay again.

April 2017

The property was amazing, the staff that we met were very friendly, approachable and more than helpful. Both adults and children (boys aged 12, 11, and 9) thoroughly enjoyed. Plenty to do within a stones throw then back to the yurt for a relax on the lovely veranda and the hot tub, finishing off chilling out in front of the TV. It was a perfect weekend

April 2017

A beautiful and peaceful hideaway in the countryside with all your creature comforts

April 2017

Our stay in the Yurt was fantastic. The Yurt is luxurious and the owners had paid great attention to details that made the Yurt feel welcoming. The location is relaxing and peaceful. We loved being in the hot tub under the stars. Everything that you needed was there and the abundant supply of wood kept the hot tub going and added extra warmth to the Yurt on a few chilly evenings.The Yurt is in a fantastic location. One of our favourite days out was walking from the Yurt to Dittisham through the fields of sheep and lambs. We caught the small ferry to Greenway and spent the day here. On the way home we went crabbing to Dittisham and came hot exhausted ready for the hot tub.Dartmouth is 10/15 minutes drive away and there are stunning beaches and coastlines aplenty.
