Devon Yurt Reviews
The bath was amazing after walking on the moor!
What a beautiful place ! Thank you Julia for a warm welcome and great advice on where to eat and where to wild swim. Thank you for our wonderfully cooked breakfasts – delicious. The bath was amazing after walking on the moor! We love it ! We hope to be back one day and will recommend The Granary to our family and friends. Have a good Summer !
It’s been so peaceful waking up to nature, the spectacular views, long hot baths…
What a wonderful week ! We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary at The Granary and have enjoyed going out on lots of walks and adventures. Lydford Gorge, Tamar trails, Hidden valley, Carnglaze caverns, National Aquarium, Meldon reservoir, Bovey castle for afternoon tea and Roadford Lake, It’s been so peaceful coming back to the barn after our days out, waking up to nature, the spectacular views, long hot baths, and we’ve loved spending time with the animals. Even feeding them. Thank you Julia for helping me set up the surprises for my husband, everything about this stay has been perfect ! Its been a pleasure staying on your farm, you’ve got beautiful little community here and all the guests have been really friendly.
We’ve had the most peaceful, relaxing time here and everything has been just perfect !
Thank you so very much Julia for being so welcoming and sharing your beautiful home and farm with us ! We’ve had the most peaceful, relaxing time here and everything has been just perfect ! Including your homemade granola and pancakes The views are just stunning and we shall certainly miss seeing the horses, chickens and duck plus all the sheep too ! We’ve become quite attached ! The Granary has really felt like home and we’ve loved coming back here at the end of our days out exploring Cornwall we’ve certainly been blessed with beautiful weather, we shall leave with happy hearts and hope to return soon. thank you so very much for everything and making this a perfect holiday !
Thank you to all who work hard here to make this a special place
Such a relaxing stay, a lovely place to be to chill out. Fab walking and a nice meal at the Castle Arms at Lydford and especially Taylors in Tavi. Thank you to all who work hard here to make this a special place but especially Julia
Loved seeing the horses from the window and the chickens roaming about the yard
We had a great stay at The Granary, the rollmop bath is amazing ! We managed to dodge most of the forecast rain and headed to the cornish coast where we enjoyed a walk around Port Isaac followed by a lovely lunch at the Port William Inn at Trebarwith. We then walked the cliff path to Tintagel castle, fantastic views all around. Lydford Gorge was spectacular in the rain and a fun walk along the river trail to the waterfall and Devils cauldron. Loved seeing the horses from the window and the chickens roaming about the yard and especially the lone duck having fun splashing about in the puddles ! Thank you Julia
The Granary has a lovely cosy feel
We had such a lovely stay at the Granary, julia is a great host, friendly and welcoming offering breakfast. The Granary has a lovely cosy feel, quite with the occasional Moooo and Baaaa ! I loved it ! Julia works hard and the farm is a credit to her and her family. The bath is amazing too ! Thank you Julia
What an incredible place !
What an incredible place ! From the minute we arrived welcomed by lambs, chicken and beautiful horses ( and a very polite Oscar !) we knew this was the perfect place for a peaceful few days. Julia – Thank you for creating this haven but also for your wonderful hosting, we had everything we needed and some bonus bits as well ! Hope to visit again – perhaps in a yurt ! Many thanks.
This really is the perfect place for a peaceful getaway
Thank you Julia for such wonderful stay in The Granary. This really is the perfect place for a peaceful getaway and we have enjoyed every minute of it and we cant wait to come back.
We absolutely loved the stay at The Granary
We absolutely loved the stay at The Granary, we picked a great week weather wise and used it to get out on as many walks and sites as possible. The farm is a real credit to Julia and her family and is a perfect setting for a relaxing trip away. Julia was a really friendly welcoming host and was always happy to give advice on what to see and do. The Strawberry Fields farm shop is not far away and recommend doing some shopping there. Really enjoyed going out for long walks the three of us and having The Granary waiting for us on our return. Thoroughy loved the whole experience and getting away with the new baby for the first time. Many thanks.
Thank you for all the little touches that make this place so special !

The Secret Stable Pizza Night – what a great trip !
We have had a wonderful stay ! so comfortable and relaxing. Thank you Julia a wonderful host. We loved the secret stable pizza night – what a great trip !! Also had a great time walking at Lydford orgs, and up to widgery cross for stunning views. Thank you for the recommendation for swimming in the river Lyd plunge pool. It was cold but so refreshing ! St Michaels church on Brentor also highly recommended for the views – an easy walk up and absolutely stunning ! Thanks !
We have had a wonderful honeymoon here – what a haven this is !
We have had a wonderful honeymoon here for a week after wedding were allowed up to 30 people. We had a very rushed 3 weeks pulling that off ! there has been nothing better than to recover amongst nature, animals, good food and even the seaside ! made extra fun by a covid secure breakfast using a camping stove ! What a haven this is . Thank you so much Julia for your wonderful hospitality.
The most magical stay !
Thank you so much for the most magical stay ! The whole place has an extraordinary energy, a peace and grace, which pierces the soul an opens the heart. It all seems so simple and natural here and yet it has a profound effect.
Couldn’t have asked for a more idyllic setting
I booked the Granary for my pregnant wife as a last trip before the baby….. couldn’t have asked for a more idyllic setting, just beautiful, will be back with the baby ! 100 %
What a treat !
Katie booked The Granary for a surprise 30th Birthday present ! What a treat ! Highlights included sampling the ale selection at strawberry fields farm shop, BBQ in the garden with Julia proving the courgettes. Cafe crawl in Tavistock and generally being in a quiet peaceful environment. Thank you for your hospitality and for making this such a covid – safe environment for one heavily pregnant wife !
Julia was super lovely !
We had a lovley and relaxing time with our mini escape. We particularly enjoyed the secret stable, not too far from The Granary. Julia was super lovely and made us feel really welcome ! Thank You !
We feel good for having stayed here !
Thank you for having us, Such a lovely place. Gorgeous and relaxing, we feel good for having stayed here.
Unique weekend getaway spot !
The luxury granary is an excellent accommodation that is surrounded by beautiful nature. I spent my perfect weekend getaway to retreat from busy london life there… Julia, the host, is very welcoming and made sure I had all I needed for my stay. The bed was really comfortable, the decoration tasteful with the extra attention to detail (fresh flowers)- the chic clawfoot bathtub in the room has to be made use of. There is free wi fi and room to park the car too. IT was very special to be surrounded by cute animals such as sheep, chickens and horses. The nearest town is Tavistock with Dartmoor National Park next to it. I loved going for long walks there. Apart from that – you have all you really need supermarkets, little boutiques, pubs and the best organic farm food in the country ! I really would have loved to stay longer !
The Granary has been a haven for me
Thank you so much for a wonderful retreat, being at Borough has been a tonic for the soul. The Granary has been a haven for me, beautifully comfortable an stylish, the Devon Countryside, the animals a delight. You have made me so welcome. Thank you.
Wish we had longer
Thank you Julia and Andrew for the most wonderful stay in The Granary. Wish we had longer. We’ll be back.
All the very best !
A beautiful place with so much space.
A beautiful place with so much space, incredible roll top bath, a perfect breakfast in the morning and stunning location. Would most definitely stay here again. Absolutely loved that its on a farm as well, loved seeing all of the animals.
Every aspect of design and decor speak for nothing but amazing taste
Julia and Andrew were the most wonderful attentive hosts. The warmest welcome to the most beautiful setting and amazing place to spend an evening. Arriving down the drive we were greeted by the beautiful horses and incredible view of the moors. Honestly, this place is so beautifully put together, each and every aspect of design and decor speak for nothing but amazing place. The bed was so comfortable, the bath was amazing and enough room for two comfortably. Julia is one of the most lovely hosts and brought us a beautiful breakfast in the morning with such a lovely welcome. Seriously wanted to stay longer and we will be returning soon.
Thank you for showing my daughter all the animals
So fantastic, we have already been back, Amelie and I had the most comfortable, happy stay in our way down to Cornwall. Thank you for looking after us and showing my daughter all the animals, especially the baby chicks.
The comfiest bed and most luxurious bath
Thank you for a lovely stop over, what an amazing place you have ! the comfiest bed and most luxurious bath. Lyra was completely in her element with all the animals. We will have to come back another time and stay in the yurts. Thanks !
The interior is beautiful stylish and comfortable
The Granary is the perfect place to relax and unwind, the interior is beautiful stylish and comfortable with wonderful countryside views. We would absolutely recommend staying for a weekend getaway. Local pubs and villages are a short drive away. But you can also take provisions with you and have no need to leave the farm. Julia is a very welcoming and charming host and the breakfast options are fantastic. Would definitely return !
The most amazing few days in a magical place
Julia is simply the most amazing host – this was my second visit and I had the most amazing few days in a magical place, so grateful to Julia for my stay.
The accommodation is somehow simple and luxurious at the same time
Gorgeous place to stay. You can’t help but quickly relax and forget about work. The accommodation is somehow simple and luxurious at the same time. Expect a gorgeous warm comfortable bed, lovely breakfasts, beautiful surroundings, sheep, horses, being close to nature, a huge living space and green living. The hosts are lovely we would stay again.
A lovely few days
Thank you for a lovely few days. We love the area and were really comfortable in the Granary. We need to come back because there’s so much more we’d like to do.
The perfect place if you want a break from a fast paced life
Fabulous, stylish and peaceful place. Off the beaten track yet somehow offers all the local amenities you could want. The perfect place if you want a break from a fast paced life.
The ultimate getaway from London
Amazing weekend!! so quiet and relaxing – the ultimate getaway from London. Julia was so great and accommodating. Everything felt just perfect and like home. Thank you for such a warm hospitality. Definitely will be back.
Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful
What a delightful slice of heaven. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. We had a wonderful, relaxing and restorative break at The Granary. Julia, you are the perfect host…. we couldn’t have felt more welcome ( even Darcy the dog was looked after so kindly with treats and a cosy bed! ) Absolutely will see you again !
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. You have a beautiful farm and we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away !
We ate in the garden in the sunshine
Julia’s place is the perfect escape. Julia was great at making us feel welcome, we were greeted on arrival and shown into the gorgeous Granary. The bed was very comfortable and we had a beautiful huge bath in our room ! Julia and her family made us feel so welcomed with little touches like bringing us delicious hot cross buns after our journey and the breakfast in the morning was perfect, we even ate it in the garden in the sunshine. Julia’s recommendations were also brilliant and she even messaged us in advance so we could book places beforehand They are lots of lovely things to do in the area We had a lovely stay and would love to come back.
Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!
Staying at The Granary is an absolute pleasure, would highly recommend! The pictures don’t do this place justice, it is gorgeous and has so many thoughtful touches to make it feel luxurious (the bedding, toiletries and crockery to name a few). The Granary offers the perfect combination of privacy and knowing that Julia is close by and happy to help with anything you could ever need and the views over Dartmoor are unparalleled. Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!
Very modern and stylish
Such a beautiful place and such friendly hosts. Will certainly be going back to stay for longer next time ! Very kind and helpful hosts. Beautiful place to stay, very modern and stylish.
The morning view of sunrise over Dartmoor is magnificent
What a beautiful spot you have here, and sun a comfortable place for our first night away from our tiny ones ! The morning view of sunrise over Dartmoor is magnificent with animal song completing the picture ! Thanks for a lovely stay, we’ll recommend you 🙂

stargazing was fantastic
Thank you for a wonderful 3 days. The breakfasts were amazing ! star gazing was fantastic, we could see the smudge of the milk – way and great shooting stars. The area around here is stunning and have enjoyed river, moor and coastal walks. The roast at the Ship Inn at Noss Mayo was a real treat on Sunday after walking along the coast.
The best host a host could be !
Julia is the best host a host could be ! we had a fab time with our two year old daughter here and would love to come back in the future. The setting is gorgeous and so many places are closer than you think, it is a great base
We will truly be sad to leave this wonderful place.
Dear Julia and Family,
Thank you so much for a fabulous stay !! The Granary has served us fantastically for venturing out and about. we have done all sorts including visiting the local cider farm which was excellent. Julia is an excellent host and we especially enjoyed the breakfasts !! Yum 🙂 She is so friendly and knowledgeable which really helped us to plan our days out. We will truly be sad to leave this wonderful place and hope to return someday… many thanks.
Your home cooked dinner and breakfasts were stunning !
Lovely, cosy and beautiful. The whole of the granary was really well decorated and very very comfortable. The breakfast and dinner were superb, a much needed comfort. The bed was cosy and very comfortable. Julia herself was ever so warm and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble at all. Highly recommended.
The bed was so comfy and the breakfast was yummy !
We had a lovely time at The Granary, the bed was so comfy and the breakfast was yummy – Julia was super friendly and more than happy to give tips about where to eat, if we were there longer, we would have loved to have had cosy nights playing the board games that are available for guests. An added bonus for us was knowing we were on a working farm, with friendly sheep and really fresh eggs for breakfast ! thank you again for hosting us, we will be back ! 🙂
Our first impressions were WOW
I booked this stay as a surprise for my girlfriend for her birthday and when we arrived to see it she was very happy with my pick.! We loved the little quirks within the Granary and the loft, the style was us and the sort of decor we appreciate. Loved the bed ( really comfortable), the bath, the lighting, the space in the loft (dining area) and just generally how well its been converted into a gorgeous living space. We had a really enjoyable stay, couldn’t have asked for more. Great hosts who made us feel very welcome. When we walked into the Granary and the Loft, our first impressions were WOW and we continued to be in total appreciation of our surroundings for our short stay. The facilities were just right, the view is stunning of the countryside and it is situated in an ideal location for exploring although for this stay we enjoyed the peaceful chill out time in this converted barn. Breakfast was lovely. Julia was very helpful with some great tips and recommendations. We will certainly be returning again.
The perfect place to relax and unwind
Fantastic stay in a lovely area ! Very close to some wonderful attractions, after a busy day the accommodation was the perfect place to relax and unwind. Highly recommend 🙂
A truly magnificent place to stay
A truly magnificent place to stay with the most gorgeous countryside setting. From the breakfast, to the cosy room and the great hospitality. 5 stars ! I’ll be looking to visit again in the near future I hope !
The Granary was even dreamier than I imagined !
The Granary was even dreamier than I imagined ! Had such a lovely peaceful stay. Such warm hosts, wonderful countryside, lovely being so near to al the animals on this working farm and the most delicious breakfast to wake up to – you can’t beat fresh eggs and avocado AND space for us to do Yoga. If it was closer to London I would be down there every weekend. Thank you for a wonderful easter break.
Breakfast and hospitality was second to none
Picturesque, idyllic, The Granary, in the tranquil setting of Julia and Andrew’s farm, offered the perfect place for us to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. It lived up to its reputation and we would definately choose to stay here again. Breakfast and hospitality second to none.

Thank you for a wonderful time. We enjoyed every minute on the farm. Its a beautiful place to stay. Switch off and relax. P.S. Best breakfast in Briton served here. Loved it.
Wow wow wow !
Wow wow wow ! Absolutely fantastic place to spend the night, we arrived at about 4pm and apart from nipping to the local store for some snacks we stayed here all evening just chillin – this is our third b and b of the week and we could stay all week if we hadn’t already booked our other b and b. We will be back again next year. Oh, and a lovely breakfast delivered to the room, thank you Julia it was beautiful x
The bath tent and the view were our favourites

Beautiful countryside with gasto pubs dotted around through the villages
We stayed at Devon Yurts in The Granary for a couple of nights, it was wonderful, from the beautiful countryside to the little gastro pubs dotted around through the villages The beaches were exactly what we wanted and Julia as a host was brilliant and welcoming, would recommend and hopefully we will make time to stay again.
Where to start…
Thank you Julia and family, we had the most wonderful stay, lots of space for two energetic boys, and a place from home with lovely little touches.The boys loved the farm animals and having the opportunity to wake up and feed the horses and hold your baby chicks. I found some hand made cups like yours in town – amazing !

The Granary was stunning !
Where to begin with our stay at Devon Yurt 🙂 The Granary was stunning, much better than we were expecting and set within such an amazing location – we wouldn’t have wished for a better place to spend a few days. Breakfast was just as we had asked and prepared and presented superbly. We would not hesitate in recommending Julia to others and will certainly be returning back to this stunning location. thanks again to Julia for creating this amazing place and making us feel so exceptionally welcome 🙂
It was a lovely place to stay and breakfast was great too
The Granary was a stop over for a one night on our way to Helston. It was a lovely place to stay and breakfast was great in the morning too. Animal sounds were great to hear even during the thunderstorm we had in the night. Thank you for having us.

Everything you need to make your stay very memorable
The Granary is a lovely one bed apartment on a working farm. There is everything you need to make your stay very memorable including wide reaching views of Dartmoor. Julia and her family were very welcoming and the breakfast we had was excellent and delivered personally to our accommodation, Julia made enquiries during our stay for dinner reservations and found a great location at The Dartmoor Inn which did fantastic steak If you arrive, like we did in the lambing season you’ll want to go home with most of her new flock so make sure you bring a trailer !
Perfect spot !
After a last minute cancellation we were very lucky to get the chance to stay at The Granary for a snatched holiday before term starts again. Breakfast and the stay perfect and beautifully relaxing ! Perfect spot to set off from and explore in all directions !
We were so lucky
We were so lucky to find The Granary very last minute due to some forboding weather on the moors that we didnt fancy camping in !
The whole farm was idyllic and feels like a home away from home. The tented bath was particularly special. Breakfast could not have been better. watched over by the beautiful connemaras.
We hope to come back.
Thank you for this wonderful space
Thank you so much Julia and Andrew for this wonderful space. Truly an amazing and relaxing location. The Granary was very comfortable and we really loved the bath tent and the fabulous breakfast. Who knew Dartmoor hid such remarkable treasure ! we will certainly be back for future adventures. Thanks for being wonderful, welcoming and friendly hosts.

Stayed here on business, no doubt I’ll be bringing the family back ! A gem of the countryside with a perfect hostl You couldn’t ask for better.

The granary is a beautiful room with lovely wooden beams and a very comfortable bed! The views from the windows are spectacular. It’s a great place if you are after somewhere peaceful.

A wonderful stay
It is such a peaceful place to stay with lovely views out across the fields. We loved it ! Julia was very helpful in recommending places nearby to eat, breakfast in bed was a great treat, it was great to be able to try some of the things they grown in the farm – thank you for a wonderful stay.
Such a peaceful place
We were one of the first people to stay here in the granary. Such a peaceful place a great place for a lazy weekend. Julia is such a friendly host and has excellent knowledge of local bike rides and beautiful beaches that Devon and Cornwall has to offer and prepared breakfast for us every day. We have very fond memories of The Granary and hope to visit again in the not too distant future!
