Kingfisher Yurt

Down the path to the ancient Holyford oaks, bluebells and dragonflies you will find Kingfisher yurt in its own private space. Its an 18ft dark green yurt with oak frame, made by Peter in the wilds of Wales. It is located close to our natural spring-fed swimming pond.

The pond is fenced and accessed through locked gates, to stop children from getting to the water unsupervised.

Inside the yurt is carpeted and furnished with a king size bed, bunk beds and bedside tables. We provide pillows, sheets and duvets and spare blankets if needed.

The yurt is off grid with lighting provided by solar photovoltaic (PV) panels.

A woodburner will keep you cosy in the evenings if needed (we provide the first basket of logs for free) There is a simple gas cooker for making hot drinks.

Outside the yurt there is a picnic table a simple charcoal BBQ and a campfire circle.

A private homemade compost toilet is situated next to the yurt. Using compost toilets saves water (no flushing!) and also recycles the ‘waste’ rather than creating pollution. We provide toilet paper (recycled from ‘who gives a crap’) and there is a handwashing sink and mirror outside the toilet.

Back up the path towards the house there is Kingfisher kitchen. Its a large open plan kitchen / living space for you to enjoy with a table and chairs for eating meals. Kingfisher kitchen has mains electricity, an electric cooker and hob, kettle and toaster plus a fridge. The kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans.

There is also a bookcase of books and guides to the area, board games and craft materials.

Behind the kitchen is Kingfisher’s indoor solar shower (accessed from outside the kitchen). Hot water is from the solar hot water system on the roof of the cabin (topped up with electricity if the sun doesn’t shine!)

All water at Holyford is from natural springs. We filter and treat the water with a UV filtering system. We supply basic eco-leaf washing up liquid, shampoo and body wash. If you bring your own please bring environmentally friendly toileteries. These are available to buy and refill in Seaton at Natural Worx.

There is a shared washing machine available to use on site. We ask for a £4 donation per wash and we provide eco- washing liquid. We do not have a tumbledrier, but have washing lines and clothes airers available. There is a launderette with tumbledriers in nearby Seaton and Axminster.
