Around us

We know that the Yurt Retreat is a beautiful place for just kicking back and just unwinding for a couple of days but we know that no matter how relaxed you are sometimes you just get the urge to explore.

We are ideally located right on the Somerset, Devon, Dorset border so whether you want to explore a country house, horse ride over the rolling countryside or eat Oysters overlooking the world heritage Jurassic Coast it’s all just on your doorstep.

We have divided up the information into places to visit and things to do just to make it easier to choose how best to enjoy a memorable day out. Just click on oneĀ of the links below to find a world of exciting possibilities.
