The yurts are in a very peaceful setting on the edge of Bodmin Moor in the Camel Valley, surrounded by beautiful trees and birdsong often with buzzards wheeling overhead. The moor is on your doorstep and it is only a short drive to some of the most beautiful stretches of coast in Cornwall.

Things to Do


  • Relaxing on the Farm - doing nothing is often an underrated option!
  • Walking on Bodmin Moor 
  • Exploring the North and South Cornish coast
  • Cycling the Camel Trail
  • Surfing
  • Wild Swimming
  • Climbing
  • Local pubs, cafes and good food


St.Breward lies on the edge of Bodmin Moor, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a designated dark sky zone. From your yurt you can set off to climb Roughtor and Brown Willy, the two highest Tors in Cornwall. It is a beautiful day-long circular walk through moorland farms, across small streams and over the moors and on clear days from the top you can see the sea on the north and south coast.

An easier but very pretty trail leads to the Blisland Inn in the neighbouring village, with outdoor seating overlooking the village green and perhaps the best ale in Cornwall. There are 1:25000 OS maps in the yurts of the surrounding area and we are always available to recommend places to visit and interesting walking routes.

Surfin at Polzeath


We are 12 miles from the north coast, which has beautiful beaches and striking cliff walks. For a change to lying on the beach all day or walking the coast path, there are opportunities to surf, sea kayak, or coasteer.

Cornwall has some of the most beautiful beaches in the country, ideal places to mess about in the sand or learn to surf. Polzeath, Trebarwith and Harlyn are all popular family beaches.


Some of the best surfing beaches are only a short drive away. You can book lessons with Surfs Up at Polzeath or with Ticket to Ride at Watergate Bay.


For rainy days there is an excellent Climbing Barn with beginners routes and bouldering facilities about 45 minutes drive from here. On the north coast there is the Tide Climbing Centre near St Issey.



Downstream  from Cornish Yurt Holidays is the start of the Camel Trail, a cycle route which follows the river Camel all the way to Padstow. Bikes can be hired from Camel cycle hire in Wadebridge or from The Snails Pace Cafe at the head of the Trail less than a mile from the yurts.
