Special cabin & romantic Vardo each sleep 2, made from reclaimed materials + lovely yurts sleeping 2-6, near Padstow. Dog-friendly site.

Mill Valley Yurts have a small dog-friendly yurt site in North Cornwall with 3 yurts, the quirky wooden Pixie Yurt, a Woodland Cabin and a Romantic Vardo.

The cabin is a wooden building made from local or reclaimed materials. It will sleep 2 only (no children in here!) and is situated on the edge of an oak woodland.

Entering the cabin from its own garden area there is a porch or 'mud room' where you can hang your coat, leave your boots and dry dirty paws! There is also a small bathroom with a simple 'bucket and chuck-it' loo and wash basin with running water. The cabin also has the use of its own outdoor composting toilet just a short walk away.

The main part of the cabin with its high ceiling and exposed oak beams is spacious, full of character and has everything you need for your stay. Windows on all sides make the cabin light and airy and means that you can take advantage of the woodland views.

The cabin has a handmade kitchen area complete with sink, running water and solar lighting. It is heated by a large bespoke woodburner which is fitted with a stainless steel water tank so you can have warm water whilst the fire is lit. Next to the wood burner is a cosy corner where you can put your feet up and chill out on the leather sofa and take in all the handcrafted details of the cabin.

The bedroom is situated on a mezzanine level which is reached by a chunky wooden ladder...fall asleep listening to the tawny owls and the peaceful sound of the weir below...

Back downstairs there is a huge stable door at the side of the cabin which opens up onto its own private decked area which overlooks the stunning woodland...the perfect place for a cup of tea in the morning or a cheeky glass of wine in the evening.

'Romantic Vardo' - The Vardois is a 15ft x 8ft hand built (by the owners!) rustic wooden structure in the style of a Gypsy Vardo. The timber has been milled by the owners from local woodlands, along with loads of reclaimed features. For instance, the floor was reclaimed Douglas fir from one of the previous Yurts, the interior walls are clad with cedar which was reclaimed from Rick Stein's restaurant and surrounding the fire is some rusty tin from an old barn find! The Vardo manages to be a light and airy space whilst being cosy at the same time! It has a double sofa bed and a wood burning stove. It is situated in its own private garden with covered area and recycled gas bottle wood burner/fire pit. It also has its own composting toilet.

Acorn Yurt sleeps 6 on a double bed and 2 double futons and a woodburner. Beech Tree Yurt sleeps 4 and is good for winter breaks as it is felt insulated and a lovely view from the stable door. Each has a BBQ and firepit and its own composting loo.

The Elm Tree Yurt is the largest at 20 ft diameter with extra high walls and clear crown cover giving it a light, airy and spacious feel. It is furnished in Morrocan style - lanterns and pouffes and warm colours. This yurt sleeps 6 on a double bed, double futon and 2 singles (stacked). It also has a dining area and a wood burning stove you can cook on. It is set on a level deck, with reclaimed elm flooring on the inside. Enjoy the view from the door of the neighbouring fields and woodland.

There is also a wooden yurt for 2 called the Pixie Yurt.

There is a minimum 2-night stay. 5-7 night stays are offered during peak months (June - July - August) with shorter breaks possible off-peak. A weeks stay is from £300-£550. Dogs are free, and children 15 and under are free for short breaks. The larger yurts are family-friendly.

Mill Valley Yurts, the Woodland Cabin and the Vardo offer an unusual and magical escape in this beautiful Cornish valley!
