Little Coombe Cedar Yurts in Devon: If you go down to the woods today, you'll find a big surprise - a back-to-nature yurt with a whole heap of luxury - from underfloor heating to a wood-fired hot tub. At Pheasant, fresh air and tranquillity combine with comfort to the max. Prepare to be impressed!

General

Have you ever felt that your life has too many corners? Seriously, though, when your day-to-day gets hectic and stressful, some chill-out time in our totes glamorous (and ever-so circular) Pheasant yurt could be just the ticket. You'll feel the appeal of the ancient design of this spectacular space, in balance and harmony with the natural world; or else simply delight in its comfortable luxury, filled with pretty much every mod con you could possibly desire.

Pheasant

Perched on the slope of a sun-dappled wooded valley, Pheasant is cedar-clad from top to toe so as to blend subtly into its tranquil setting. You're not just close to nature here - you're slap bang right in the middle of it, and what's more the yurt has a cleverly cantilevered deck (eat your heart out, Grand Designs) that offers jaw-droppingly beautiful views across the treetops to the valley below.

Your story starts at the shared parking area, where you unload your kit onto a wheelbarrow for the short toddle to the unique site (by the way, Pheasant's companions, the equally lovely Owl, Buzzard and Woodpecker yurts, are far enough away for you to feel nicely private). Beside the huge deck - effectively an outside room, where al fresco meals are a must - is a private, sheltered hot tub, a little wood-fired beauty where you can totally chillax while taking in the gorgeous views. The entrance leads you into either the main yurt, an incredible eight metres in diameter, or the smaller yurt, a generous four metres from side to side. Both boast WiFi and even full underfloor heating, so you'll be toasty whatever the weather's doing outside. This is indeed luxury glamping at its very best.

The big daddy yurt is cleverly divided into sitting, cooking, dining, sleeping and bathing areas, with a fully fitted kitchen (including an electric cooker, dishwasher, fridge and microwave), a king-sized bed, an en suite shower-room and proper flushing loo, and a tucked-away washing machine. A wood-burning stove means you can build up a roaring fire and gather round with whisky or hot chocolate and, if you're in danger of missing your favourite show, there is a TV, not to mention a Blu-ray DVD player and even and Bluetooth sound system! Across the hallway in the baby yurt you'll find triple bunk-beds and another en suite shower-room with WC and wash-basin. That'll be just right for washing off the mud from all the den-making, tree climbing and general running around outdoors the kids will be doing, then. Oh yes, and you can all look out for the local wildlife, including the occasional deer, perhaps a fox or maybe a badger, while at night you'll fall asleep to the atmospheric hoots of owls and the occasional squawk of a pheasant.

Out and About

Less than a mile down the road is the pretty waterside village of Dittisham (known as Ditsum to the locals). Here there are two pubs and an excellent seafood café, a post office, village store and a foot ferry to the Greenway estate (now owned by the National Trust, it was once the holiday home of author Agatha Christie, and is well worth a visit). At high tide, it's a whole mile across the Dart from Dittisham to Galmpton, which makes this stretch of the river, called Dittisham Lake, perfect for sailing. You can hire a boat (sail or motor) locally, or a six-metre RIB through the Owners, and go up to Totnes or along to Dartmouth; both towns are great for a day out, with all kinds of interesting shops, galleries, cafés and restaurants. There is surfing available at Bantham beach, about half an hour away, and just ask the Owners if you would like to hire mountain bikes for exploring the local area on two wheels. Or if you simply want to get busy doing nothing, you can be at Blackpool Sands, a stunning, privately owned beach with an excellent organic café, within ten minutes.
