Stress-free family yurt glamping, and just a ten-minute drive from the stunning, wild coastline at Bude

On the northern reaches of Bude, away from the bucket and spade brigades, beachside cafés and gangs of wannabe surfers, awaits a wilder, more desolate coastline; its crags and coves stretching to where Cornwall meets Devon. At the start of this territory lies Duckpool, a rugged little beach where the Atlantic swell pounds smooth, wave-hewn rocks. There are no trappings except for an ice cream van on the sunniest days, and if you strike out along the coast path you may only pass a few hardy walkers between here and the Hawker’s Hut perched on the cliffs at Morwenstow.

East Thorne, a ten-minute drive inland, is nothing like this wild coastline. But, after a day immersed in raw and desolate scenery, it can be comforting to return to modern conveniences and the company of fellow campers. For camping here is not about surviving in the wilderness or playing boy scouts. In this neat little community of ten yurts, where glamping, not camping, is the buzz-word, you can sip wine on the decking and watch children run around on the car-free green. If you remembered to leave a message on your chalkboard a fresh basket of wood will be ready to throw on the wood-burner, and you can even order a gourmet hamper ready for tea-time.

Each of the yurts comes pre-furnished with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Don't worry about bedding, pots, pans, lamps and cool-boxes. Instead, you can fill the car to breaking point with buckets and spades and spend your days building castle villages on the nearby beaches. Up to six people can be accommodated inside each Mongolian-style structure, with wooden double beds, sofas and soft furnishings. On the deck outside there is also a separate kitchen cabin with gas hobs and a BBQ.

The resulting site is a family-orientated yurt haven in a quiet slice of Cornwall. There's enough space in the meadows that every yurt has its own distinct, private spot, while covered dining areas and grassy space for ball games still allows for a sociable atmosphere. Children leave with grass stains on their knees and the smell of campfire smoke in their jumpers. You wouldn't want it any other way.
