Stress-free family yurt and roundhouse glamping, just a 10-minute drive from the stunning, wild coastline at Bude

A ten-minute drive inland from the coast of North Cornwall, close to the wild coastline north of Bude, and the beaches at Duckpool and Morwenstow, East Thorne is a beautifully located glamping retreat. Convenient for the coast but far enough away amid gorgeous countryside, it can't help but be relaxing – a neat little gathering of roundhouse that's super-organized yet also super-chilled. Sip wine on your deck and watch children run around on the green, car-free space. Leave a message on the chalkboard and a fresh basket of wood will be delivered for your wood-burner. Order a gourmet hamper and settle down for a dinner of seasonal street food offerings... Life in the West Country doesn't get much better.

The six luxurious Roundhouses are designed with a nod to the traditional yurt structure – with a central roof-light, wood-burning stove and a circular layout – but with the very highest levels of luxury: wooden floors, handmade double beds, armchairs and coffee machines, a full-equipped kitchen, as well as a plush en-suite bathroom and your own private hot tub outside. All the roundhouses are suitable for for two, but Cynefin and the Secret Roundhouses are exclusively designed with couples in mind, ith their own private gardens, while the rest sleep up to 6 people each.

The roundhouses are all well spaced out in their own area, and there's enough space for every structure to have its own private spot, while covered dining areas and a grassy space for ball games allows for a sociable atmosphere. Children leave with grass stains on their knees and the smell of campfire smoke in their jumpers. You wouldn't want it any other way.



The family roundhouses have double beds, hardwood floors, wood-burning stove, underfloor heating, dining table and chairs an en-suite bathroom and an electric hot tub just outside. They also come with a fully-equipped internal kitchen, a cabin bedroom with adult sized bunk-beds and an additional sofa bed in the main area. Both the couples Roundhouses are set in their own private gardens. Cynefin Roundhouse has an internal kitchen, king size bed, double ensuite shower, roll top bath, bi-fold doors on to a beautiful countryside valley view with an electric hot tub. The Secret Roundhouse has a fully fitted outside kitchen cabin with fridge, sink, induction hob, BBQ, fire pit and wood burning hot tub.The whole site can access the pizza oven, free WiFi, campfire and covered barn for eating and gathering. There are sheep and chickens on-site, a local produce ordering system and whole site can access the pizza oven, free WiFi, campfire and covered barn for eating and gathering.

Suitable For

Glampers, couples, families, groups, dogs (in the Ember and Fern Roundhouses) – yes. We also have four cottages on our site for those that wish to stay a little more conventionally. The site sleeps up to 56 guests and can be hired exclusively of required.


East Thorne can organise all sorts of activities from coasteering and kayaking to high ropes. Try surfing at Sandymouth Beach (07870 472448), about 10-minutes’ drive away, or take on one of the toughest sections of the South West Coast Path between Bude and Hartland Quay. Bude’s stunning Summerleaze, Crooklets and Widemouth beaches are popular for trying your hand at further surfing or simply building sand castles with the kids. A string of cool waterfront cafés and amusement arcades will also keep you busy once you tire of the beach.
