The Owner Says

Little Links yurt is a spacious 18 feet in diameter fitted with a log burner, carpets and sheepskins to keep you warm, ideal for couples and families with small children. You will be welcomed with our own homemade elderflower cordial on arrival and fresh farm produce will be available depending on the season. Celebration cakes can be ordered as well as veg and fruit boxes, breakfast, BBQ hampers and delicious home made evening meals using local and farm produce.

Little Links Yurt is particularly charming and romantic and is equipped with a double sized bed complete with crisp cotton linen for 2 adults and 2 roll out futons for up to 2 children, there is space for a baby with a high chair, cot and changing table available in the Shower Barn, Please bring your own towels. You have a garden all to yourselves where you will find a picnic table with seats draped with sheepskins, with a further BBQ area, a fire pit and rustic benches in an adjacent meadow overlooking Dartmoor. It is more central to the farm, as such, it is more conveniently located to the shower house, amenities and the bath tent than Great Links yurt. Bring your horse or bikes and enjoy the trails surrounding our site.

Installed last season with great reviews were private hand-crafted, Scandinavian hot tubs overlooking the glorious Devonshire countryside with dramatic Dartmoor as the back drop, this is an optional extra at £50 for weeklong stays and £35 for midweek breaks and the weekend. Relax and embrace nature as the sun sets and dusk commences, sit under big open skies and enjoy the warmth of the water, heated by logs, whilst watching a dark night sky embedded with stars.

Families can also make the most of the natural environment at Lydford Gorge, where a walk to the waterfall (accessible buggy route) is complete with all the National Trust trimmings, including a café and picnic area. And, despite the name, it's not all Devon, Devon, Devon. The rugged Cornish coast is a 30-minute drive and Cornwall's famous Eden Project (01726 811911) is nearby too. Devon Yurt can provide details of all the surrounding nearby beaches such as Widemouth Bay and Bude, lakes, rivers and top walking spots, not to mention secret plunge pools and wonderful dog walks.

Getting There

Exit the A30 at Lifton and continue through the village, past the Arundell Arms on your left, and over a bridge at the bottom of the hill. Turn right, signposted ‘Chillaton/industrial estate’, and follow this road up the hill for a couple of miles to the crossroads called Borough Cross signposted to Kelly. Do not turn off but continue for 50 metres and you will find Borough Farm on the left-hand side. Bere Alston is the closest rail station. Alternatively you can catch a train to Exeter and then get a bus to Lifton, but if you want to explore Dartmoor and all its surroundings then this isn’t the place to be without your own vehicle.
