A Fantastic Way to Relax and Escape the Chaos of London
My girlfriend and I stayed at Devon yurt in the Little Links for a long weekend. It was beautiful weather and we had the most amazing time down in Devon. From our yurt we had the most spectacular views of Dartmoor and loved being able to watch the sunset most evenings whilst in the hot tub. It is a really special place and a fantastic way to relax and escape the chaos of London.
Julia was an exceptional host and she went above and beyond to make sure we were well looked after. She has fantastic knowledge of the local area and we managed to visit some lovely beaches, go on some great walks and stop in at some good pubs too (before lockdown!).
I would highly recommend Devon Yurt to anyone and have already pencilled in another visit towards the end of the year to make sure I return.
It is the Perfect Getaway
I stayed here in March before lockdown, and I have to say that it is paradise. It is the perfect getaway, with so much to do in the local area. Devon yurt has a breathtaking location, with views from your own private hot tub out over Dartmoor. The yurts themselves are gorgeously decorated, with comfy beds and every amenity at your disposal. This is the perfect place to truly relax, unplug, and immerse yourself in nature whilst indulging in luxury. Thank you to our wonderful host, Julia, we will be back soon!!!
Keep doing a wonderful job
Another fabulous stay at Devon Yurt, as always, Julia and Andrew give it the WOW factor with fantastic hospitality and home cooked food. Dave the pub had the time of his life being in the wild and we now feel so much more relaxed. Keep doing a wonderful job, until next time …..
A truly stunning part of the world !
WOW ! what an amazing experience, we couldn’t have chosen a better way to spend our first wedding anniversary. Beautiful breakfasts, out and about during the day and hot tub and bbq around the fire at night. A truly stunning part of the world ! We hope to return with family and friends in tow. This will definitely be an experience we will be talking about for a long time to come. Many thanks for everything !
What a way to spend our Honeymoon !
What a way to spend our honeymoon ! Thank you to Julia for our wonderful four night stay in Great Links yurt, by day we went sightseeing and in the evening we relaxed in the hot tub, the rain didn’t stop us from enjoying our time ! I highly recommend Julia’s cooked breakfasts and all her home made preserves. Thanks for all the helpful suggestions of places to visit. Beautiful yurt, hosts, atmosphere and energy. Hopefully we will be back for our first wedding anniversary !
You have thought of everything
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay on your beautiful farm. We have loved it ! The children loved seeing the sheep, horses, foal and chickens – especially seeing the horses running in the field ! Cooking on the fire and woodturner was a great adventure – the marshmallows were very popular ! You have thought of everything to make this a wonderful experience and made us feel so welcome. We hope to be back !
Memories made that will last a life time !
Huge thank you to Julia, Andrew and family for our absolutely gorgeous weekend away ! Memories made that will last a lifetime. Marshmallows on the campfire, evenings in the hot tub, long country walks, beaches, fabulous pub grub and full english breakfast cooked on the stove. The kids have loved it ! The dog is refusing to go home ! Thank you Julia for all the amazing recommendations, The Cornish Arms in Tavistock, the Peter Tavy waterfall walk, Widemouth Bay and a five mile hilly run around the farm ! Fabulous hosts, fabulous yurt, fabulous holiday – hope to be back in the future !!
Fresh scrambled eggs with butter cooked on the fire for breakfast!
We’ve all had such a wonderful week away, plenty of fresh air and glorious scenery and of course the gorgeous yurt to come back to. Julia has been a fabulous host, tending to our every need, giving us great recommendations (Sandy Mouth beach is heaven) and even taking our towels in when it rained! Everything has been clean and comfortable, we even used the invigorating outdoor shower and the children loved the hot tub. They will miss the horses, sheep and chickens (fresh scrambled eggs with butter cooked on the fire for breakfast!) and of course the ‘elephant tree’ (look out for it next to the barn) Thank you so much for a fantastic holiday.
Truly relaxing being away from London and sirens and noise and pollution
Thank you very much for making our stay so comfortable and enjoyable. We had a lovely time in the hot tub with the kids. The bed was comfortable and the yurt very homely. Thank you for the fab breakfasts and helping us out with dinner one night. There’s no baked potato like one from an AGA. Brought back childhood memories. We would definitely return, it was truly relaxing being away from London and sirens and noise and pollution. Why do we live there and not here!

Thanks Julia, you’re a superstar!

The yurt was cosy and we loved the hot tub
We have had an amazing time staying here, thank you so much. We have all really enjoyed ourselves. The yurt was cosy, we loved the hot tub and being in the beautiful countryside. We enjoyed a bike ride along the Granite Way, had a brilliant day at Lydford gorge and loved our beach day in Polzeath. The children loved body boarding.

All the benefits of camping without any of the hassles
One of the more memorable holidays we’ve had.. all for good reasons!! we have enjoyed our stay so much and made good use of the brilliant set-up. At one point, I think we had all three fires on the go: bath, tub & pit! Having somewhere to stay that adds to the holiday is such a bonus and makes all “down time” a real treat.
We have done a lot of camping over the years and appreciated all the benefits of it without any of the hassles. Thank you Julia and family for letting us share your magical place. Maybe see you again one day.

A lovely relaxing stay

We loved walking up Brentor, visiting the miniature Pony centre and walking through Lydford gorge. Loved your beautiful friendly sheep and horses! We drove through Dartmoor national park and saw wild horses too – amazing.
Thanks for being such fabulous hosts!
Claire, Pete, Maria & Max

What a perfect way to spend four days!
What a perfect way to spend four days!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful slice of the countryside with us. And even more wonderful to look out on it all from a steaming hot tub; especially an evening thunderstorm!!! We loved having our own sheep grazing alongside us while we BBQ’d, hope you won some prizes at the show!
Spectacular food, amazing views, wonderful hot tub, friendly sheep and even a hedgehog trundling by!
Thank you for such an amazing time. We came to Little Links for one night only, but it has been perfect. Spectacular food, amazing views, wonderful hot tub, friendly sheep and even a hedgehog trundling by! An added bonus to meet the foal. The bed was really comfy and the yurt wonderfully homely.
All topped off by a delicious breakfast! We will most certainly be back. Thank you!

“Are the chickens awake yet?”
We’ve had a really lovely time staying in the yurt – thank you for making us feel so comfortable and so welcome.
“Are the chickens awake yet?” ask Lyla, for the 100th time since 6AM this morning… We’ve loved our stay here – hot tub an obvious highlight, hanging out with the sheep, meeting the foal… Hope to be back in the spring or the lamb feeding.
The views are gorgeous and the setting wonderfully relaxing
Thank you for a wonderful stay on your beautiful farm. We’ve enjoyed an amazing few days over an anniversary and birthday, and only wish we could have stayed longer! The yurt is incredibly roomy and comfortable, the views are gorgeous and the setting wonderfully relaxing. Your recommendations for excursions (Lydford Gorge, Sandymouth Bay & Peter Tavy) were all thoroughly enjoyed. This is a wonderful place for little (and big!) ones, and our daughter was particularly enchanted by the sheep, horses and hens both little and large. We would love to come back!
The elderflower water was to die for!!
Mine & my partners first yurt experience! We thoroughly enjoyed it. On arrival, had a wonderful welcome, Julia & her family looked after us extremely well & provided us with everything we needed. THE ELDERFLOWER WAER WAS TO DIE FOR!! & the hot tub experience was pure bliss. We will definitely be returning.
Thank you ever so much for our stay!!!

Visit Number 3 ! – Just love coming back to Little Links ! So many changes to see, dressing gowns, beer and chocolate, remote control candles, another hen house…. So lovely to see Julia and Andrew who always go above and beyond to make us feel at home. We had the privilege of being here when the new foal was born which made it an extra special visit.

James had a slice of the ‘rainy day cake” ( I was still full from dinner) and really enjoyed it – thank you ! we had a lovely day at Bude and went to the local otter sanctuary which is well worth a visit. We ended our holiday in the hot tub – which got that hot I had to get our ! Glad we did tit ! Andrew makes the best pancakes ever !!!!

I couldn’t have chosen better
I surprised my boyfriend with a long weekend at your yurt and I couldn’t have chosen something better. Despite the rain, we had a great time in the cosy yurt whilst the fire was burning.

The kids had a blast
The charm and cosy feel of the farm was a fantastic treat ! We enjoyed the yurt, hot tub, shower room and all of the other nice touches. The kids had a blast with all of the extra toys and games. The best part was the animal experience and Im sure they will have lasting wonderful memories. thank you for being such great hosts and for all of the small details – fresh flowers, fruit infused water and comfort items.
Our sausage dog Jammy now thinks he’s a farm dog !

Completely wonderful and peaceful and nourishing and joyful !
We can’t really describe how completely wonderful and peaceful and nourishing and joyful our weekend here has been. Julia and Andrew – you are the perfect hosts and made us feel like old friends. Your fish pie really is the best we’ve ever had! We just loved meeting the sheep, feeding the lambs and watching the hens and the politics of the dust bowl unfold! Just heavenly. Delicious trips to Coombeshead farm (Sunday Lunch Amazing ) and Tavistock for shopping ( cheese shop fab) and also the gardens at Endsleigh were out of this world. Off to Lydford Gorge today. But our best times were spent here – in the hot tub, in the bath tent and snuggled up in the yurt, Honestly, Borough Farm and all who live here will hold a very special place in our hearts always ! we’ll be back ! soon ! Andrew thank you for your kindness and patience re. all our animal questions and interests – huge thanks and love x

We had a wonderful stay
We had a wonderful stay at Devon Yurt. The yurt is so cosy, especially the amazing bed which was huge and comfy. The hot tub was brilliant and we had lots of fun with the wood fires. Julia was so friendly and took time to show us around her wonderful place and gave us recommendations of things to do. (Lydford gorge was a big highlight)
The whole place really was picture perfect with really wonderful little touches.
Literally 10/10 for everything ! Perfect break in a perfect location.
We booked this as a last minute get away, what an amazing place, literally 10/10 for everything ! We loved the yurt and the elderflower cordial and all the little extras, the fire made it all snug and warm, we loved cooking on the fire pit, and the hot tub under the stars relaxed us so much, we had the best night’s sleep we’ve had in ages. The pancakes for breakfast are a must, delicious. Just the best time, thank you Julia for your wonderful hospitality, next time we will stay longer ! perfect break in a perfect location ! Thank you so much
A wonderful mini moon in this beautiful location
we have had a wonderful mini moon in this beautiful location. Even when it rained it didn’t matter with such a cosy yurt to snuggle up in.

We got all the peace, quiet and nature we needed

The perfect cozy get – together for all the girlies!
A year later (to the day!) We’ve returned to little links for another night! It was the perfect cosy get – together for all the girlies! We raided the local blackberry supply on a lovely walk overlooking Dartmoor, the got going preparing a totally local and delicious crumble. The famous ‘Turkey auction’ roast was just what we needed and in our very full state we piled into the hot tub! W thought 5 of us might be a challenge but it was relaxing and atmospheric and warmed us up perfectly before bed! The location was perfectly quiet and we loved looking at the moon and stars – not something we see machine Archway! Thank you so much for having us – its been the perfect stopover on our way to Cornwall! look forward to seeing you soon.

We will definitely be back!
We had an amazing time staying here – outside dinners and bbqs and the yurt stayed cool even though we had beautiful 27 degrees sunshine. Julia and Andrew were lovely hosts. Dylan enjoyed feeding the chickens in the morning and looking for eggs. We will definitely be back as there is so much we didn’t get to do! A couple of things we did try: Canoes with Tamar Trails. Widemouth and Sandymouth beaches (good for body boarding) cycle hire in Bude. Motor boat hire in Fowey – all were great fun. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
We didn’t want to leave your lovely yurt and farm
Dear Julia and Andrew
Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality, especially the welcome from Archie ! We have really enjoyed ourselves and don’t want to leave your lovely yurt and farm. The next time we visit Devon we will definitely check to see if Great Links is available Thank you again.
We could not have wished for more
Great links certainly lived up to its name, we were able to reach an amazing array of sites and activities in under an hour. The location is stunning! We could not have wished for more. Fantastic full english and a great range of utilities to meet our needs. You thought of everything. Many Thanks
Your well equipped yurt and shower house made glamping with a 13 month old easy
Thank you for the most wonderful experience. Your yurt is gorgeous and your farm is stunning, we have all had the most amazing time. Thank you so much for decorating the yurt for Sean’s birthday it added a special touch. Your well equipped yurt and shower house made glamping with a 13 month old easy. We will definitely be back the next time we are in need of a relaxing break.
The farm is beautiful with stunning views
Thank you for a super first experience in a yurt! The farm is beautiful with stunning views. We all really enjoyed our relaxing stay and the children especially enjoyed the freedom to roam on the farm and see the animals. Fantastic stay! Will definately be back!!
The attention to detail was excellent
What a wonderful setting! The yurt is lovely so comfortable and luxurious! And the views are amazing. Waking up to the sounds of the countryside was heaven and the attention to detail was excellent. Thank you for your great knowledge of all the local walks, would recommend the walk at Peter Tavy with a swim the the pool. Lydford gorge and the walk to Widgery cross and swimming hole. The cards were a great help and most appreciated. Fantastic weather all week and a glorious location, thank you for sharing it!
Enjoy the sights and sounds of the country
A great place to stay and enjoy the sights and sounds of the country through the open door while laying in bed. Thanks to Julia for the local advice on where to eat, swim and walk. Marmite enjoyed her time here with Archie as much as we did.
We couldn’t believe the stars, so pretty !
This was our first glamping experience, I wasn’t sure what to expect but it has been the most magical time. We couldn’t have had better weather which just added another dimension to our stay. The yurt is absolutely gorgeous and contains everything you could ever need. We loved the hot tub ( with a rum and coke) and watching the sun go down. The shower room is beautiful and that shower – wow ! We loved waking up to the sound of the animals ( rather than the roar of traffic ) we could listen to the sheep forever, so comical. The best experience ever was bottle feeding the 3 black lambs, I couldn’t stop smiling. Thank you ! You have the most special home in a beautiful environment and we will definitely be back ! we couldn’t believe the stars ! so pretty. We couldn’t have asked for more perfect hosts, you were helpful in every way and our breakfasts were amazing, and 10 stars for the pancakes on Sunday. I am so sad to be going home and wish we were here for longer !!!
Brody has loved the freedom and all the swimming
Thank you so much for an amazing weekend, all 3 of us have loved our stay in Great Links – the views, the hot tub, the bats and the bees – and Brody has loved the freedom and all the swimming. Sad to say goodbye to the yurt this morning but hope to come and stay again soon.
This was the best birthday weekend ever !
Dear Julia and Andrew, Staying in Great Links was a magical experience ! We enjoyed the serenity, beautiful views, the secluded hot tub and the comfy bed. Thank you for the local tips and delicious meals. We loved Trebarwith Strand, and Lydford Gorge was truly enchanting ! this was the best birthday weekend ever !
What a truly amazing place to stay
What a truly amazing place to stay. What a shame we didn’t have longer to enjoy the peace and tranquility of your beautiful farm. The yurt was gorgeous. the views incredible and the feeling of peace allowed us to totally unwind. Would love to return and maybe for a bit longer next time.
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 really liked it because it had loads of sheep !
I really liked it here because it had loads of sheep.
Thank you, we really like it , I liked it because it is outside.
We loved the swallows, the views, the hot tub and the bats flying around !
Thank you so much, what a fantastic stay. we loved the swallows, the views, the hot tub and the bats flying around the paddocks, feeding the lambs and stroking the horses. Thank you for making us feel so welcome Julia and Andrew. hopefully we will be back soon.
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
Scenery Was Immense Such a Beautiful Place
Exactly what we needed for our wedding anniversary, some peace and quiet! Back home to the three kids now after a well deserved break. A beautiful place, scenery was Immense and the local treasures were amazing. Thank you for the help you offered throughout our stay, including finding bike parts for my broken seat! Will be back with the kids! Lookout!
Rodney had the time of his life !
Thank you so much for our wonderful weekend in the yurt – we loved every minute of it and Rodney had the time of his life ! we love being so far away from everything where we can really relax, we’ll definitely be returning soon !
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.
Perfect Host and Incredible Setting
Perfect host, incredible setting, cosy yurt and a steaming hot tub to spend the evening in listening to the lambs! A perfect way to welcome in spring and celebrate a birthday. Thanks for an unforgettable stay!
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!
A Bubble of Freedom and Warmth
What a fabulous place you have! Exceptional views and a handsome range of livestock enriched our back to nature experiences does the beautifully dressed bed. With such quality sleep, we were raring to go each morning! There is so much to see and do in this area, yet we didn’t want to leave campus! You’ve clearly put consideration into your customer experience, lots of wonderful touches throughout. Its a very visual and awakening place to be. A bubble of freedom and warmth.
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 !
Thank you for a lovely stay !
We had a brilliant time and Charlie loved meeting all the animals…. especially the ‘cheeky ducks’ and all the chickens which he enjoyed shouting ‘cock-a-doodle-do’ 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 2 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 all so welcome…. we hope to be back soon !
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

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.

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.

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
