The Owner Says

Great Links yurt is a whopping 21 foot in diameter and is the more remote of our two yurts, it is ideal for guests who really want to immerse themselves in the countryside and all it has to offer, huge skies filled with stars, stunning sunrises over Dartmoor and the charming church of Brentor beautifully framed from your doorway. If you can drag yourself away from your yurt, private paddock, fire pit and hot tub then you also have a most elegant wet room styled shower room in a neighbouring barn, a wide range of beautiful farm animals to get to know and a seemingly endless list of places to visit and things to do in the neighbourhood. Be as lazy or active as you wish, the choice is yours.  You can have breakfast delivered to your door in the morning - you would be wise not to miss Andrew's sunday morning pancakes! and you can BBQ in the evenings or enjoy one of Borough Farm's legendary home made meals. Gather your family and friends and have exclusive use of the whole site to celebrate a landmark birthday or other celebration. You can eat al fresco or dine in The Loft which seats up to 30 people.

About Devon Yurt

Suitable For

Small groups – yes, dogs, yes. Tents, campervans, caravans, no


Dartmoor is one of the biggest attractions, but there’s much more than walking and wild swimming on the doorstep. Go horse riding over the moors with Cholwell Riding Stables at Mary Tavy (01822 810526), or award winning Liberty trails. Swing through the Tamar Valley woodland on a high ropes course (01822 833409). Also at Gunnislake, there are 25 miles of family-friendly cycle trails (bike hire available), and freewheeling fans have also got the disused railway track of the Tarka Trail nearby. Route 27 cycle track, the granite way and the drakes trail. 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.
