Description of Hemsford Yurt Camp

Located in the beautiful South Hams part of South Devon, we provide self catering holidays in our Mongolian yurts or shepherds hut.

​Our 4 yurts and our lovely cosy shepherd’s hut have everything you might need for a self catering short break or longer holiday in the picturesque South Hams area of Devon.

Many people often ask about the facilities – we can offer fully flushing toilets, hot showers and washrooms. The camp is off grid and has its own solar power supply.

The walkways are lit by solar lights and each yurt and the hut has its own solar lighting.

The camp has a small but well equipped kitchen with gas stoves and a dining area located in a converted stable block along with the shower, flushing toilets and washrooms.

Our camp site is licensed by South Hams District Council and we are fully insured for public liability.

Our Yurt camp is located in the tranquil Hems Valley, near Littlehempston.

Enjoy a unique and memorable glamping holiday with a difference in an authentic Yurt. Our Yurts and hut are sited in a small 3 acre meadow overlooking the river Hems which is a small tributary to the River Dart.

The river and our lake are a haven for British native species of fish, frogs, newts, and many insects.

The authentic Mongolian yurts and the shepherd’s hut are comfortably furnished to high standards with full sized beds with bedding provided, and wood burning stoves in the larger yurts.

Staying in a traditional Yurt or hut is ideally suited for both families and groups or as a private retreat and for those who would like to camp in a serene and peaceful location with an unusual twist.
