Good clear instructions on the website and was easy to choose what we wanted, although the photos of the yurt was when it was brand new.

Finally, thank you for the card we received for our 45th wedding anniversary, sent to our yurt! very thoughtful.

Our stay was just what we needed. Quiet, away from it all, but close enough to civilisation for essentials. The yurt was exactly as pictured and in a large enclosed space on its own, giving us privacy.

The log fire worked well and the wi-fi was excellent.

We didn't use the hot tub, firepit or BBQ and only really used the fridge in the kitchen area during our stay. The kitchen and bathroom were very clean.

I would recommend this stay. We are planning to return, but this time we understand the local pubs and where we can eat, and also where the retail park is (about 10 mins away). The village pub appears to be fully booked well in advance, however we did eat at the Mad Hatters, which although part of a garden centre did a pretty good Sunday Carvery. The breakfast there is OK also.

If you are looking for something a bit different, with privacy and lots of space, then it is worth trying out this Yurt.

Loved our weekend stay in this beautiful yurt. A peaceful and quiet spot, hidden away from the busyness of life - just what we needed. The hot tub was a bonus, to unwind in luxury. The woodburner made the yurt feel warm and cosy. Only 'negative' was having to walk outside to get to the toilet and kitchen facilities, but it wasn't a big deal as it was only a few meters. Thanks for a lovely break!

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. It sounds like you had a super time there relaxing, destressing and embracing the quirkiness of yurt living! Donna, Customer Support

We got lucky with the weather given the summer we've had, but Whittler's Yurt would have been great with or without the sunshine. It was perfect for a relaxing escape, in a rural setting but close to the village with a great pub, fish and chip shop and post office/grocery. 10 minutes in the car to the beach and then any number of beaches up or down the coast to explore. The kitchen and shower room were just right for the two of us, the enclosed garden perfect for the dog and the hot tub was real treat at the end of the day. We'll definitely be coming back.

Well equipped and beautiful surroundings- really pleasant stay.

We had an amazing long weekend, so relaxing and tranquil. My wife cried with joy upon arrival, and cried with sadness upon departure. A truly wonderful experience there , Dave our host , guide was so helpful and informative and we’re a little jealous of him being able to live in such a beautiful location. Thankyou so much for our wonderful stay and your hospitality Until next time

Whittlers Yurt was amazing, secluded location with great amenities. Spent the weekend with my husband but could easily spend a couple of nights there alone…..chilling and reading. The hot tub was lovely in the evening to lie back and star gaze. Beautifully decorated throughout.

The property exceeded our expectations. The yurt was spacious and beautifully decorated with everything we needed for our stay. The hot tub was great. The outdoor space provides privacy. Dave, the host was accommodating without being intrusive. The kitchen and shower were well equipped with plenty of hot water. We arrived as the sun set, welcomed by the outside lights. I would definitely recommend and hope to return.

We had a wonderful weekend hideaway here. Dave was an excellent host, and the yurt was very warm and comfortable (even in January).

Fantastic property in a stunning location

Whittier’s Yurt is a beautiful place to stay and get away from normal life for a weekend. The yurt is beautiful and the surrounding are wonderful

This is an unusual but wonderful place to stay, essentially glamping plus. The yurt itself was lovely, dry and surprisingly warm, the separate kitchen and shower room/loo shed was small but well specified. Finally the hot tub was a glorious bit of luxury. All told we had a lovely time.

Absolutely stunning property and owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. Would definitely recommend and I will definitely be returning. The owners even had an app with really helpful recommendations for the area and the property. Such a wonderful place

I booked Whittlers Yurt for my husband’s belated 50th birthday as wanted to do something different. It seemed perfect for everything he loves: he whittles, loves camping, can’t resist a hot tub and a fire pit plus has an interest in blacksmithing. We had the best weekend, the yurt is gorgeous, thoughtfully decorated and laid out (plenty of places to sit inside if it rained) and the outside space was so peaceful and private. Bex and Dave the owners were very welcoming, not intrusive at all and the fresh eggs, milk and biscuits were very much appreciated. It was dark when we arrived but the garden looked so lovely with all the lights on. I am definitely a camping to glamping convert and would highly recommend this place!

We had a fantastic stay at Whittler's Yurt. The Yurt itself was clean and beautifully furnished. The outhouse had a great array of cooking facilities. Dave was a great host and made us feel really welcome and had some great recommendations for local restaurants and activities. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Whittler's Yurt to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in north Devon.

We had a great time at the yurt. Dave was very helpful and made sure we CCP had everything we needed. The yurt was extremely well equipped and comfortable and the surrounding area beautiful. We had amazing weather also so could not have asked for more!!
