Unique yurt-style cabins nestled in the heart of the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in East Devon.
Welcome to Grey Willow Yurts, a small family-run campsite in East Devon where traditional camping meets comfort and warmth.
Our three yurts are a totally unique combination of yurt and cabin, we call them Yabins!
Our eco friendly glamping Yabins are nestled in the heart of the Blackdown Hills in Devon.
Whether you want to cosy up in front of your own wood burner, or star-gaze huddled around a fire pit, our peaceful and friendly environment will make you feel right at home.
Our yurts sit a good distance apart in a large flat field, in a very peaceful and tranquil area full of wildlife.
Each yurt is fully furnished and has a wood burning stove to cook on and to keep you warm. If the weather is fine you can light a campfire under the stars.
Our handcrafted, covered ‘Tiki’ decks are a new addition to the Yabins, where you can enjoy the long summer evenings or shelter your bbq from the inevitable British weather!
All of the wood is sourced locally from sustainable sources.
We have two shower rooms and a washing up point all heated by a wood burner, the water comes from our own bore hole and the only electricity on site is the solar powered lighting.
We are situated 10 minutes drive from the market town of Honiton, and 25 minutes from Axminster, the home of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen and HQ.
There are lots of walks and cycle routes in the area on offer, and also lots of good country pubs and restaurants a short drive away.
We are a totally off grid campsite. No mains electricity and water is provided by our own borehole. Although we have proper-flushing toilets, all waste is processed by a powerless package treatment plant imported from Germany.
A torch, sensible shoes or boots, warms clothes, towels and bedding for the futons. The futons have cotton blankets only. Freezer blocks which we can swap daily.
The owner does not have a video of their glamping site.
Stargazing Our yurt-style cabins are situated in one of the best areas of the UK for stargazing. Taking into account both levels of light pollution and the number of clear nights we receive per year, you'll see that there are few better places to stare skywards than right here in the heart of the Blackdowns.

Plenty of space
3 units. Each unit sleeps 5
Minimum stay - 2 nights
The 'Yabins' are furnished with carpets, 1 double bed, 1 double futon and a single Z Bed. They also include cabinets, cushions, a wood burner, pots, pans and cutlery. You can boil a kettle or cook in a pan on the top of the wood burner (perfect for a chilli or a stew!). It can take a long time to cook on a wood burner so you are more than welcome to bring a gas stove and barbecue. Our handcrafted, covered ‘Tiki’ decks are a new addition to the Yabins.
