From the moment you arrive at this little piece of heaven you will be amazed. Sat in a magical woodland setting with gorgeous views across a valley and a hot tub to enjoy them from, Buzzard is furnished in contemporary colours with plenty of space to relax, inside or out.
No luxury or comfort has been left behind - the delightful main yurt is eight metres in diameter and is divided into sitting, bedroom (with king-size bed, no less!), dining and fully-fitted kitchen areas. There is an en suite shower-room and separate cloakroom, while an entrance hall/corridor links to the smaller yurt with a triple bunk-bedroom and its own shower-room with WC and wash-basin.
Under-floor heating and a wood-burner guarantee you will not be cold whatever the elements throw at you, WiFi is available and there's a TV, Blu-ray DVD player, Bluetooth sound system, electric cooker, microwave, fridge with ice-box, dishwasher and even a washing machine tucked into a cupboard with an iron and ironing board.
The adventure starts at the shared private parking-area, transport your luggage with one of the handy wheelbarrows along the track (quite steep, please take care) and up a few steps to your gorgeous cedar-clad yurt, which is set apart from its siblings Owl, Pheasant and Woodpecker in this idyllic spot.
We think that, apart from cooking or sleeping, and even the former can be done on the barbecue outside, you will spend most of your time on the large deck, soaking up the woodland setting and views or lolling gently in the warm water of the wood-fired hot tub. This is stunning accommodation.
Please don't be nervous about the 'glamping experience'. Buzzard is just incredible with all the equipment you would expect to find in a cottage with the added charm of an unusually and beautifully designed space. No doubt you'll find it hard to tear yourselves away from this amazing place but do venture out from time to time as south Devon has so much to offer; glorious tree-lined estuaries, some fantastic beaches, Blackpool Sands in particular, pretty higgledy piggledly thatched cottages in tiny villages, historic towns such as Dartmouth and Totnes are all well worth exploring.
Also do try to visit Greenway, Agatha Christie's house which has now been totally restored by the National Trust. You can get the foot ferry across to the estate from nearby Dittisham. You can also arrange hire of a motor boat, sailing boat, paddle boards and kayaks locally.
But no matter what you decide to do or where to visit, be assured there will be a warm welcome back at Buzzard when you return and evenings can be spent on the deck, in the hot tub (the water does take at least a couple of hours to warm up initially), or snuggled up around the wood-burner.
