About East Thorne Yurt Holidays

Surrounded by the rugged beauty of the North Cornwall coast, experience the great outdoors without forgoing life’s finer things!

East Thorne is a unique and special place in an idyllic part of Cornwall, near Bude. Families wanting to escape the hectic pace of everyday life would relish a stay in either the luxury yurts or cosy cottages on the beautiful North Cornish coast. A great base to explore nearby beaches and attractions as well as great on-site facilities and outdoor space to keep the kids amused, allowing the 'grown ups' to relax in style and comfort. Your hosts have carefully selected experiences and activities on offer with local companies, for families to enjoy an exhilarating activity holiday if that is your preferred choice. Otherwise kick back, relax and in the natural beauty of the North Cornwall coast. Either way East Thorne is perfect for families to enjoy good times together.

Naomi and Adam Black had a dream…took a deep breath and with lots of passion, enthusiasm and a huge lifestyle change, set out to establish a unique holiday experience that would tick all the boxes for their own ideal family holiday choice. We’re glad they did, as East Thorne is now welcoming guests of all ages to enjoy. And it’s stunning - an idyllic place for a holiday that combines the adventure of sleeping below the open skies in comfort and style.

Enjoying a sheltered spot near Bude, North Cornwall, East Thorne is a quiet and peaceful location, and close to the sea, with five beaches just a few minutes by car. Explore this most beautiful part of Cornwall, where a short drive leads you to either the sandy Atlantic coast or the high coastal cliffs.

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.

For the Kids...

• Safe and stimulating car free zone to explore
• Games room
• Adventure playground
• Communal campfire
• Toys and games for a rainy day

...together with a huge variety of activities such as surfing, horse-riding and coastal walks that can be arranged for you.

Things for Families to See and Do in North Cornwall

If you are a family who enjoys nothing more feeling sand between the toes, digging sandcastles and hunting for treasure in rock-pools then you are going to be in holiday heaven as there is not one, but five beaches within a few minutes drive. Summerleaze Beach at Bude has a great sandy beach, a snack bar, an open-air sea pool, lifeguard cover (May to Sept, 10am-6pm), those all-important loos, close at hand and you can even hire beach huts for the day.

The nearby scenery is stunning with a plethora of beaches, harbours, country lanes, and the Cornish Moors all within easy reach. The picturesque villages of Boscastle and Tintagel have something for everyone to enjoy, with delightful shops, galleries, potteries, churches and historic buildings to take in on any visit. Explore King Arthur's medieval castle at Tintagel or an hours drive will get you to the award wining Eden project.

And finally…

East Thorne is dedicated to the yurt-based camping experience - a new way of experiencing the outdoor life in rustic settings, but with more than a hint of luxury and comfort. East Thorne can be as relaxing and revitalising, or as invigorating and exhilarating as you like.
