The yurt was beautiful, spacious, well equipped, warm and you had an option to light a log burner but honestly we didn't need to. Beautiful Wood fired hot tub with endless amount of wood and kindling provided. Such a peaceful location but near enough to amenities like supermarkets and towns. Just a perfect relax and unwind holiday.

Fantastic Yurt in beautiful surroundings. 15 minutes away from beautiful beaches and over 600 miles of amazing coastal walks

We had such a lovey time at the yurt and would highly recommend it. It was beautiful, and the hot tub was perfect. It took a few hours to warm up the first time but after that not as long. Would highly recommend

Great yurt, amazing remote location and a great place to escape it all.

Buzzard Cedar Yurt was an idyllic place to spend our honeymoon. Beautiful, peaceful and private setting. The yurt exceeded all expectations. Wonderfully clean, comfortable and well equipped. The hot tub was a fantastic bonus - what a wonderful way to spend our evenings. Can’t wait to visit again. Sue and Pat

Well equipped kitchen, lovely bathrooms, bed was comfy, the glass domed roof was great for looking at the stars at night, the decking area was fabulous. The hot tub took some time to heat up but once it got going it was such a fun addition to the experience. It was quiet and secluded and wonderful to get away from reality in the beautiful surroundings.

Superb spot. Cosy and warm. Hot tub amazing. Book ahead if you want a meal in Dittisham - busy over half term, had to take away instead.

Absolutely superb luxury and comfort. We had the most relaxing break in a beautiful, private location. I cant recommend these yurts highly enough. Every little detail has been thought of for guest comfort and convenience.

We had a wonderful week at Buzzard. It is really comfortable and has been fitted out really well. We particularly enjoyed spending every night in the hot tub drinking our bubbly! It is set in a good location, only 10 mins away from Dartmouth and 30 mins away from Salcombe. We loved it so much that we have already booked it again for next year.

The Yurt is set in a beautiful location, sitting in the hot tub looking at the stars listening to the owls was fantastic. The yurt itself was beyond our expectations and a beautiful place to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Thank you for the kind gift and card on arrival.

A truest stunning place to stay. Very relaxing & comfortably. Thank you

The perfect location to relax and unwind in a unique property situated in the beautiful South Hams and within 10 minutes of beaches, creeks and quintessential Devon towns and villages.

Our second visit to Buzzard and it was as good as the first. Great, unique accommodation in a good location in the South Hams.

Exceptional accommodation very unique. The hot tub was a relaxing finish to the day.

It was our second stay there and it was every bit as good as the first !

Beautiful property in the most stunning location. It was fantastic for children and felt very safe. We had such a wonderful and relaxing break and only thing that made us sad was leaving :) already planning a return trip and hopefully booking a couple of the yurts with family and friends.

Thanks so much for your review - we're really pleased to hear that you had such a wonderful stay. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Kari, Customer Support

Another great stay. We preferred setting of Buzzard as still private but the deck gets more sun than Owl. Great location for exploring south Devon. We’ll be back again!

Stunning yurt in a beautiful countryside setting. Lovely walks from the doorstep and some great places to eat nearby. The hot tub was amazing! Such a peaceful place to stay - a real gem of a property!

Myself and Emma had a wonderful time at the Buzzard yurt, Lovely surroundings with amazing views. The weather during our stay was most definitely on our side, which made it possible to enjoy breakfast and evening meals outside on the spacious decking before relaxing in the lovely hot tub. We definitely considered on planing a return visit in the future and would highly recommended to friends and family.

We're delighted to hear that you had such a great holiday in the wonderful Buzzard's Cedar Yurt. The setting and views are truly fabulous and the lovely hot tub is the most perfect addition. We'd love to see you again soon. Kari, Customer Support

A very well-situated and high quality property. The accommodation is generally very comfortable, although we found the bunk beds in the second bedroom too constricted. Would be excellent for family with younger children. The area is lovely and nearby Dartmouth well worth a visit.

What a fantastic place to stay, absolutely beautiful setting & the yurt has been finished to an extremely high standard. Highly recommended.

Perfect, wish we could have stayed longer....

Wonderful stay, property exceeded expectations and would highly recommend for a romantic retreat for two, but equally for a more luxury holiday for a small family.

Wonderful, wonderful holiday.

The location, the decor, amazing views from thr balcony area and the skylight in the evening. The kids loved collecting the fire wood to heat the hot tub. It gave them a little snippet of the country life us in the city yearn for! The yurt was immaculate tastefully decorated. I would highly recommend this.

Fantastic accommodation in a brilliant location. The facilities were excellent, the Yurt was spotlessly clean, with plenty of space to relax both inside and outside of the Yurt. I would certainly recommend the accommodation and likely to look to return to the accommodation again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our our stay at Buzzard. The unique well appointed accommodation, spatious deck with hot tub and tranquil location made for a great holiday.

A perfect get away!

Outstanding Place to relax and unwind... even with our adventurous 18month old son. A fantastic way to celebrate my husbands 30th Birthday and we cannot wait to stay again in the future. We were very fortunate with the weather so making the most of nearby attractions was a breeze and coming home to enjoy the hot tub was the icing on the cake. Sad to be home.

Lovely quiet location which is near everything South Devon has to offer. The standard of accommodation here is high and the hot tub an added (and relaxing) bonus. We hope to return one day.

Fantastic Yurt. Felt very luxurious, very private & lovely setting.

The Yurt was perfect in every way including peace and tranquility

Lovely location and facilities. Truly enjoyed our stay here

Can't recommend this property highly enough. It is beautifully decorated, really spacious and so clean and well equipped. We stayed with our 11 month old baby and found it really safe for him but also very romantic and peaceful for us! The terrace is huge & completely private with a wonderful wood fired hot tub which we used even though the weather was awful! The beds are really comfy and everything in there feels brand new, and there is a log burner for if you get a bit chilly. The location is beautiful, set into the hillside in loads of trees and overlooking fields with cows, is it so quiet and tranquil. The only point I'd make is you definitely need a car to get anywhere! Also - do not use a satnav to try and find it - follow the directions they send in the booking info or you'll be driving down tiny devon roads for doube the time whereas it is actually quite easy to find.

In our opinion the whole experience was faultless and we are coming back xx next year to woodpecker xx amazing holiday home for anyone. Thank you all soooo much xxx

This is a wonderful property in a peaceful setting with all mod cons, if you like sunrise and star gazing from a hot tub then this is the place for you.

Thank you for a fantastic break, very relaxing. Well placed for exploring. We loved the wood-burner and hot tub, and found the wood-burners easy to light and plenty of wood easily available. Comfy beds and lovely linen. Loved watching the sky through the dome, and listening to the owls in the mornings. Can't wait to return!

Far exceeded all expectations, we were blown away! My parents have already booked on my recommendation. As soon as we can afford it we will be going back! I can only say how much I enjoyed my stay. To anyone debating booking. Do it. You cannot regret it.

Thank you for your review of Buzzard Cedar Yurt - it sounds like you had a truly wonderful time! We were delighted to hear that your parents will be sampling this unique experience for themselves and we do hope to welcome you back again in the very near future. Bryony, Customer Support

Fantastic. A perfect quiet getaway. Disappointed that we couldn't get the hot tub hot (despite hours of fires), but it was sub-zero January temperatures outside, so it may well have been that. Otherwise we couldn't fault it.

Thanks so much for taking the time to let us have a review of Buzzard Cedar Yurt - we're delighted to hear you had a great time overall. We're sorry that you had some trouble getting the hot tub up to your preferred temperature. Wood fired hot tubs are not quite as instant as their electric cousins and they can take time to warm up (as you found), particularly if the air temperature is below freezing. Bryony, Customer Support

We loved the whole experience of staying in Buzzard Yurt, from morning coffee on the deck bathed in sunshine, to soaking in the hot tub under the stars. Ten minute drive into Dartmouth and 15 minutes to Blackpool Sands - great central location for all our needs. A truly wonderful way to spend the New Year!

Beautiful property in such a peaceful location. Stargazing from the hot tub is something never to forget.

Love the brochure and our stay in the yurt and I can't wait to convince my fiancé to let me book another holiday with you!

Absolute quality with fine detail in all the finishing. The Yurt was spotless and no expense was spared On the build quality. Once again brilliant.

Thank you so much for a gorgeous family holiday. There was lots of space inside, it was styled beautifully, there was lots to do around and about (we loved Salcombe) and the hot tub was the cherry on the cake. However, what was hugely appreciated and a fantastic reflection on the whole place is that the owners very kindly sent back to us our son's new watch (bought on holiday) and some baby bibs we'd left behind - all freshly washed.

The yurt was amazing - so well equipped, immaculately presented & in a breathtaking g location. Wonderful & peaceful.

We had such a happy time at Buzzard Cedar. This is truly luxury glamping, with all the details carefully thought about by the owners for a comfortable stay. The hot tub was the finishing touch to make this the kind of place you want to visit again and again.

Loved our first experience of glamping and it will certainly be the first of many. The accommodation provides everything you could need and more particularly if traveling with young children. It was so peaceful and we felt so close to nature yet a close drive to numerous towns and adventure parks. Plenty to do.

Outdoor space at the yurt was perfect, we were so fortunate with the weather we had the majority of our meals including breakfast outside and the BBQ and hot tub were well used.

Thank you so much for a fabulous week.
