The Camping Yurts
At the heart of East Thorne are the 10 sustainably sourced, luxury yurts, which can each sleep a family of 6. The yurts are built in true Mongolian style and are located within their own private setting amongst the trees. A perfect place to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the countryside whilst watching the little ones scamper about enjoying the fresh air and hopefully tiring themselves out! The yurts are furnished so that you can enjoy a touch of luxury whilst camping, with comfortable handmade beds, snuggly blankets and furnishings. Raised off the ground on wooden decking, the yurts come complete with a wood burning stove and felt insulated walls, ensuring a warm and cosy environment whatever the weather.
There's no need to overload your car and haul all your camping paraphernalia with you. All of the practical things you need are provided to make sure your self-catering stay is hassle-free such as pots and pans, crockery, cutlery, highchairs and cot beds...even herbs from the communal garden! Each yurt has its own sheltered outdoor kitchen with separate barbeque and al fresco dining area and refrigeration and storage facilities. Just a stone's throw away you'll find the luxury bathroom building with modern and stylish facilities.

Three children aged 4, 3 and 15 months and two delighted parents have just spent a wonderful week in a beautiful yurt, furnished with love and an attention to all the details to make our life easy. It was big, comfy, snug and fun, and amazingly convenient (even when it is pouring with rain). There are no cars on site, the children could run around freely enjoying the play area with their newly made friends, and we enjoyed some more civilised adult time around the campfire in the evenings.
Our hosts, Naomi and Adam, clearly love what they are doing and it felt like being part of the family with them joining us around the campfire and giving plenty of helpful advice, letting the children come and feed the sheep or hunt for the eggs.
There is a big sandy beach, Sandymouth, 2 miles down the road. We loved Tintagel, 40 minutes drive, and the Otter Sanctuary where we fed the deer.

We had a fantastic time here and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed family friendly holiday. No soggy tents here just luxury yurts and excellent facillities. Close to Bude and all the surrounding beaches. We will definitely return!
