Description of Grey Willow Yurts
Welcome to Grey Willow Yurts, a small family run campsite where traditional camping meets comfort and warmth.
Our three main 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.

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.
