We look forward to welcoming you again – Julia
An experience I’m already excited to do all over again !
Julia told me before I booked that I wouldn’t find a better Yurt and boy oh boy was she correct. Julia is an amazing host who was very welcoming to such a beautiful place. The little touches make your experiences, such as the ‘hot tub kit’ , the candles to light up the yurt at night and the fresh flowers, the BBQ, wood fire heated hot tub, amazing views and top of the line facilities made this not just a relaxing stay but an experience I’m already excited to do all over again. Would and have recommended this place to everyone !
I think this year’s trip even topped last years trip here !
Thank you an amazing stay ! we all loved it here – I think this year’s trip even topped last year’s trip here, which is really saying something ! we had a super time boogie boarding and climbing rocks at crackington haven and sandy mouth and experienced a tremendous thunderstorm ! best of all though the boys loved feeding the lambs with Andrew and seeing and holding the baby chicks with Julia, it has been so relaxing and we are all thoroughly recharged ! ( last year the boys helped when the baby lambs were born and they were named after them ) we can’t wait to come back again – thanks so much
The fantastic location, brilliant host and cosy yurt!
The fantastic location, brilliant host, cosy yurt, topped off with a brand new wood – fired hot tub, served as the perfect birthday surprise.
Huge thanks to Julia for everything. We had everything we needed : the fireplace had been laid, candles, fresh flowers, the shower room had a fridge and washing up facilities, more blankets as well as gas stoves and more fire supplies. We had eggs from the farm and a lovely warm shower in the morning. Couldn’t recommend this place more.
The View Is Absolutely Phenominal
We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at Little Links. The view is absolutely phenominal and a great escape from our busy home life. The bath is fantastic and so relaxing. We loved visiting Lydford Gorge with our lab Bobby yesterday and woukd highly reccommend this to anyone else visiting here. We also did the “round robin” on the steam railway to Dartmouth. Overall, a very relaxing time away with lots of laughs, reading and fire starting. The attention to detail here is great too – I loved sitting with a blanket stargazing across the hills!
I wish we had longer here
We had a lovely time in the yurts, it is amazing. Me and Amy loved going body boarding there were huge waves. We did it with our firends Willow and Theo who live in Cornwall. The food was yummy when we had a midnight feast but we did not stay up til midnight, just up till late. The bed is really comfy, I wish we had longer here. I love being near the sheep horses and chickens.
Charlie loved meeting all the animals especially the cheeky ducks !
Thank you for a lovely stay ! We had a brilliant time and Charlie loved meeting all the animals… especially the cheeky ducks and the chickens which he enjoyed shouting cock-a-doodle-doo at every morning. We had fun exploring Devon and Cornwall, with trips to the aquarium in Plymouth and the Eden Project – both perfect for a two year old. The shower room, fridge freezer and washing facilities made our stay really comfortable. Especially for those early chilly mornings with a little one. Thank you for making us so welcome, we hope to be back soon !
This place is now one of my favourite places in the world
Amazing views and the sky last night was incredible!!! This place is now one of my favourite places in the world. Lydford Gorge was absolutely stunning and we loved exploring the local river and plunge pool. Julia thank you for sharing all your local knowledge of the area – it has been a real blessing to us and helped us to create a holiday we will never forget. Thank you.
We enjoyed every second of our time here
Dear Julia and Andrew, We enjoyed every second of our time here – thank you. We made a friend too – Julia, your warmth and hospitality was so appreciated. The little touches made little links a very special holiday location. Every detail was thought of – even games for the boys to play with. The shower was great too- much appreciated by a Londoner who wasn’t too keen on camping. Boys had a fabulous time and learnt so much. Thank you, enjoy your lovely family in good health. Great holiday thanks !
We’ve done so many amazing things here
Dear Julia and family, Thank you for such a memorable holiday – we’ve done so many amazing things here – water skiing at Rock, invigorating tow hour walk at Lydford gorge, body boarding at Trebarwith Strand, and at Watergate Bay, horse riding at Cholwell stables, entering Twiglet in the prettiest dog contest at Manaton’s country fair ( we didnt win!) and all on top of some spectacular star gazing, holding week old chicks, feeding the sheep, keeping the log burner burning, home made breakfast treats, open air bath times – we could go on ! we are due to emigrate to the US so this is probably our last British holiday and we are so very happy at how British it was. You have inspired us to do a similar set up in the states… who knows ! All the very best to you, family and pets.
You have been the most perfect host
Dear Julia, You have been the most perfect host. In our beautiful yurt, little links we have had the most wonderful time. Dartmoor walks, Granite way cycle, lovely local food, your lovely farm animals, we can’t wait to return. Thank you very much.
Lots of excellent memories to take home !
Dear Julia, What an amazing location ! Thank you so much for looking after us all so well and sharing where the best beaches, best walks, best pubs and best wild swims are ! we all had a great holiday, lots of excellent memories to take home !
Ticked all the boxes and added more !
WOW ! What an amazing place to stay, ticked all the boxes and added more ! Love the tranquil peaceful setting, will definitely be back.
The superkingsize bed and fabulous shower were a great hit.
Julia and Andrew, What a lovely stay we have had in your beautiful yurt – The superkingsize bed and fabulous shower were a big hit. Edie loved every minute she spent with every animal, especially Power and Archie so thank you for including and embracing our wild child 🙂 We had lovely days at Dartmoor Zoo, Plymouth Aquarium, Fowey, Tavistock and a beautiful little cafe called Cowslip Workshop, this has beautiful gardens too. Crooklets beach in Bude and Trebarwith Strand were both stunning clean and relatively quiet. We have really enjoyed our stay x
We absolutely love it here, see you next year !
Our second time staying in Great Links – we weren’t blessed with the heatwave from last year but the gales and rain made for a fun ad interesting adventure ! Once again Dot loved the outside loo and visiting and helping with the horses. Whilst Bruin enjoyed the views of the morning cows ! This year we ventured to the Aquarium at Plymouth – it was fab ! kids loved it as did we ! visited Tintagel Castle, very dramatic and very steep but kids did well and loved playing at the Haven Beach. Our final day was spent at Dingles heritage fairground, just down the road, again another fab attraction, then onto Padstow to watch boats in the harbour and eat ice-cream. As always a big thank you to Julia and Andrew for being such fabulous hosts and checking on us in the dead of night when the gales were blowing ! We absolutely love it here, see you next year !
The yurt is brilliant !
What a fantastic place ! This was our 1st camping trip in over a decade an we have loved every minute. The yurt is brilliant! Both our kids enjoyed being outside so much and Isabelle (5 years) loved talking to the sheep and horses.We also thoroughly enjoyed exploring North Cornwall – a change from our usual visits to St Ives. We will be back one day!
Heaven in Devon
Wow what a beautiful place. We are not campers by any stretch of the imagination, but the Yurt won us over. We didn’t really have to worry about a thing! Comfy bed, place for a campfire and idyllic surroundings. Waking up to the sound of birdsong is amazing and walking out to look at the sun coming up over the hills was very special. So much to do in so little time! We will definitely be back. Thanks for making our stay so special – especially for the kids. A lot of work and love has gone into making this place so special.
Thank you for a lovely stay !

A Wonderful Long Weekend
We’ve had such a wonderful long weekend, lots of nice beachy walks, climbing on rocks and taking in the lovely views, as well as great fun in the yurt itself – a great adventure. Thanks so much to Julia and Andrew who were so friendly and helpful.
We loved seeing the lambs born or even Liam and Ewan which were their given names, Thank you for letting us stay. Love from Liam
Loved this place
Great experience in the yurt with the kids – they loved this place and the lambs !
We were SO cosy and warm
A most perfect time ! Here with our six month old baby, People thought we were a bit mad braving a yurt so early in the season, but we were SO cosy and warm. Lydford gorge is – as Julia says – like being in New Zealand, incredible. And the lambs ! just one more to arrive now !
Heaven in Devon !
Thank you for keeping the bath tent and Little Links yurt up for us ! It’s a beautiful place and you were great hosts – nice and friendly with good tips for the local area. So glad we discovered this little piece of heaven in Devon ! We’ve had an amazing stay – perhaps it’s a case of once you’ve gone ‘glamping’ you won’t want to go camping ! Bathing under the stars and seeing shooting stars was magical. Hope to visit again one day.
Thank you for a wonderful evening away. The first night of our ‘mini-moon’ It has been so tranquil and there is such attention to detail here. Had an awesome bath, a fab idea ! It’s my first visit to Devon/Cornwall and I’m sure we’ll be back ! Thanks again.
Waking to the dawn chorus was fabulous
What a super experience, we loved the bath tent – soaking away the stresses of everyday life with fizz, bubbles and an amazing view ! waking to the dawn chorus was fabulous and the walk through Lydford Gorge simply spectacular ! Thank you for your hospitality. We will be back !
Perfect solo retreat
Thank you so much ! Perfect solo retreat in a beautiful area ! Thank you for being so accommodating ! hopefully I will be back one day !
A lovely welcoming place
This is a lovely, welcoming place to stay – lots to do, we particularly enjoyed riding on the moors at Cholwell stables – great for all standards and very friendly. We will hopefully be back soon to do some more treks on Dartmoor.
Fishing, cycling and going to the beach
What a lovely place ! We’ve had a great time, fishing, cycling and going to the beach. Hope to see you again next year.
The yurt is beautiful – I could live here !
So sad to be leaving. Three nights isn’t nearly enough to take in this beautiful are of Devon/Cornwall. We’ve had an amazing time on the last trip of our summer of adventures. My only regret is that we didn’t find this place earlier in the year so we could enjoy lighter evenings. There just aren’t enough hours in the day. The yurt is beautiful – I could live here ! That view is stunning. Such peace ! Wild swimming on the moors, beach trips to Trebarwith Strand and Widemouth, pub grub at Mary Tavy and BBQ’s / campfires here at Little Links. Wonderful memories. Thank you for a fantastic end to our Summer camping / glamping trips. So hope to be back next year. Thank you Julia for everything !
Our family loved the space and tranquility
Thank you Julia for a wonderful stay ! We enjoyed walking at Lydford Gorge, visiting the swimming spots you recommended, a trip to Sandymouth and a walk along the top and of course afternoon tea at Endsleigh House. Thanks for the great recommendations and congratulations on creating such a wonderful retreat – can’t imagine how much hard work goes into maintaining it so beautifully – our family loved the space and tranquility.
We will be back !
Constantly excited by the wonderful environment we found here
We all loved our first yurt experience, we’ll never ‘rough’ it again ! the kids were constantly excited by the wonderful environment we found here. We went on some great walks and had one fab day at the beach. Special thanks to Julia whose excursion suggestions made for a really special holiday.
I like the tent ..
Thank you we had a great time here. I like the tent and I like the field around us.
Our home from home !
Another wonderful stay at Devon Yurt, our home from home ! Absolutely loved being back. Julia is amazing ! The children adore her, and helping feed the animals. Joshua caught some mackerel and she prepared and cooked them for him to enjoy ! brilliant ! We have adventured in Lydford Gorge – so beautiful – definitely a must. Visited Padstow, for crabbing, shopping, fish and chips and a bike ride to Camelford. Eden project is another favourite. It’s so peaceful, beautiful and fun here we don’t want to leave! Thank you SO much Julia, Andrew and Oscar for helping us re-charge our batteries and for the incredible views, fabulous setting and your magical hospitality there really is no where else quite like Devon Yurt. See you next Summer !
Oh what fun we had !
Oh what fun we had ! such a beautiful place and so well stocked ! Thanks
Thanks for a lovely family fun and friendly weekend. Great hosts, great yurt and epic views.
The bed was so comfy
What can we say, just that this was the holiday our little family needed, it brought us closer and got us away from the telly. The bed was so comfy and thankfully big enough for all four of us ! We will yurt again.
So much love for Little Links !
So much love for Little Links ! A fabulous few days filled with adventures, camp fires and outdoor bathing ! Our three year old loved his first glamping experience and little links was a magical place to tell him about the new baby brother or sister he’ll soon be meeting. Andrew and Julia are super hosts, really welcoming of families with little people ! Thank you so much.
This is the perfect setting
It is our 10 year wedding anniversary and this is the perfect setting. We enjoyed our short stay and will be back with the children.
We all loved the bath tent

Thank you for a wonderful holiday
Thank you very much for providing such a beautiful yurt with everything so well considered. We loved staying in the yurt – so near the lovely sheep and cows ! The gardens of Heligan were the highlight of our trip – what a magical place. Tintagel was also spectacular. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Lazy days in the yurt
Thank you so much for such a lovely break away ! Have loved lazy days in the yurt and exploring your local National Trust treasures. Your lovely lambs are beautiful – we have made friends and your eggs are so delicious. It has been great to get away from it all and be surrounded by bird song and cows. Thank you again P.S. The bath was fantastic !
A very relaxed few days

Will definitely be recommending you
We really enjoyed our first experience staying in a yurt, was great being able to get away from civilisation for a while. We both felt very welcome in the relaxed environment you have created here. Will definitely be recommending you
Another fab week
We love it here in Great Links. We have had another fab week, thank you so much, it’s a special place. See you again soon.
Nothing too much trouble
“We came to mark our 45th wedding anniversary, Julia is the ‘real deal’ generous to a fault, keeping the wood burner in while we went walking, lovely breakfasts, warmest of welcomes, nothing too much trouble. Thank you.”
We love this place
Thank you for an amazing weekend. We love this place and will be back soon. We had a lovely chilled out weekend with lots of fresh air. The facilities here are perfect. Thanks again
10/10 to Julia
We’ve had a lovely couple of days at Great Links. Lovely warm fires and a cuppa seems to taste better in a camping mug. We climbed up Brentor Church ( amazing views ) and visited Lydford Gorge – could be in New Zealand. Nice pub dinners at the Elephant’s nest and the Peter Tavy Inn. 10/10 to Julia she made us feel very welcome.
Thank you for a fabulous stay
We couldn’t have found a more perfect place. The yurt, the shower, the bbq, the wood burner, the little sweet peas and other thoughtful touches make a very special place. But it is Julia and Andrew who make it extraordinary. What lovely people, nothing seems to be too much. Always full of ideas, advice, suggestions and a happy smile. Thank you for a fabulous stay, it comes to something when you aren’t sure whether to tell everyone about it for fear of never getting another vacancy!
Amazing few days
Especially liked the unique bath tub outside, with the awesome views and sheep for company ! Definitely a must!

We will be sad to leave
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home, we have had a wonderful time, getting back to basics and enjoying the amazing views and wildlife. Eva has really loved it. We will be sad to leave.
Fantastic stay. Julie and Andrew were lovely. Nothing was too much trouble
The children had a brilliant holiday
Wonderful relaxing time, Thank you so much for the warm welcome, beautiful views, comfort and re charge. It was so very much needed” The children had a brilliant holiday too – as I’m sure you’ve gathered from Matty ! Thank you again.
We had a great time
We had a great time on a short one night stay. The kids really enjoyed feeding the lambs, meeting the horses and various chickens, ducks etc. The yurt was really impressive and very comfortable.
Wish we could stay longer
Beautiful views and we loved visiting the animals and enjoying showers looking over Dartmoor. Wish we could stay longer
Our first yurt experience and what a lovely time we have had. Perfect location with so much around to see and visit. The outdoor bath was a real hit, we are looking forward to our next visit.
Incredible breakfast beyond fabulous
What a wonderful night and morning we have had . A truly memorable way to spend and celebrate my lovely husband’s birthday. The children have had a marvellous adventure ! Wonderful and comfortable, warm and cosy on a cold night. Incredible breakfast beyond fabulous ! thank you so much for having us! We will certainly be back for longer next time!
We look forward to staying again
Thank you so much for a lovely stay. We all loved the beautiful views and friendly atmosphere. We were very comfortable and warm at night with the wood burner roaring, even our 8 month old slept well. We look forward to staying again.
Children decided to become farmers
Children decided to become farmers not princesses!
What a lovely first holiday
What a lovely first holiday for our little ones ! Loved the lambs and the chicks – Aneinis most sad not to take his ‘pet holiday lambs’ home with him. Thank you very much.
A really warm and special place
On a sunny spring inspection morning, I stumbled into a scene of pure rural bliss… in the kitchen Julia was tending to baby chicks keeping them warm in box on top of rayburn, whilst outside lambs frolicked around (it turned out that later that day she delivered another two!). Daffodils lined the drive and the kitchen garden showed first signs of healthy produce to come… This is a place to slow down and relax and soak up in the big views, with glass of wine, in the big outdoor bath. A really warm and special place, everything feels settled and happy and guests will too. Even though I didn’t get to stay this time, I left feeling relaxed
