Escape to the truly magical and enchanting Whittlers Yurt, wonderfully positioned in the north Devon countryside near Clovelly. Immerse yourself in a slower place of life and simply relax, spending days exploring the wonders of this rural idyll and returning to your little piece of heaven where you can spend evenings star-gazing from the warmth of the hot tub or sitting back and simply enjoying the tranquility of the setting. This really is the perfect couple's romantic getaway retreat.
Whittlers Yurt is located in a secluded spot with access to the owners' lake and adjoining fields. Follow the meandering stream and you'll discover a perfectly placed platform for meditation or yoga. The small lake invites you to cool off and enjoy wild swimming or perhaps a picnic on the platform. This really is the place to relax and unwind.
The yurt has fabulous outside decking with a covered sunshade area, making this the perfect lazy afternoon spot and, of course, the obligatory barbecue for al fresco dining in style. Inside you'll be wowed by the stylish and creative plantation vibe, eclectic furniture, Persian rugs and gorgeous adornments. The double bed sits in prime position to take full advantage of the fabulous toono window, the yurt's most important aspect where earth meets light. Wake up after a restful night's sleep in the opulent bed to the natural light filtering through, perfect. No yurt would be complete without the all-important log-burner, creating a warm and romantic glow on chillier evenings. Outside the yurt you'll find a beautiful wooden shed, crafted by the owners. Here is where you'll find the small but perfectly formed kitchenette with electric hob, combination microwave and plenty of equipment for whipping up a creative meal. Off the kitchen you will find the well-appointed shower-room with WC and basin.
A unique Mongolian round yurt, Whittlers is a magical place with beautiful touches and quirky interiors, showing off the owners' remarkable talent as a renowned blacksmith and artisan. The helpful owners are on site should you need them, but your privacy is assured and you can enjoy a getaway in total peace and tranquility here.
