About the property


Little Fursdon holiday apartment is an attractive bolt hole for small families or couples wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and relax in the Cornish Countryside. It's a world away from the noise and fumes of town life. The only noises you'll hear here are the hoot of an owl or the bleat of the lambs. Close by the rugged moorland has many fascinating historical locations that beg to be explored either on foot or by car. The ancient standing stones 'The Hurlers' located on the moor near Minions is just a short drive away, just one of the amazing ancient historical sites that litters this area and the location for some of the scenes from the recent production of the film Poldark.

About Lindsey Fear

My husband David and I have lived at Little Fursdon for twenty two years.

We love living in this beautiful place on the edge of the moors. Just a few minutes walk from the house you can be in the countryside on open moors. We both enjoy walking and cycling and Little Fursdon is ideally located to do both.

The beaches of Cornwall are never far away and you can get to either the north or south coast beaches within half an hour by car. We both love travelling and so we have created our own small business here in the heart of Cornwall where we rent our holiday apartment and luxury yurts in the summer and in the winter months we take the opportunity to travel the world.

This year we cycled from Cornwall to Spain and spent several weeks in Rajasthan in India and we went trekking in Nepal

Lindsey Fear purchased this barn in 1993

Why Lindsey Fear chose Cornwall

We fell in love with Little Fursdon as soon as we saw it. The old part of the house dates back over 600 years and it is full of charm and character. The large garden is full of flowers and shrubs, giving it a real cottage garden feel. Located less than a mile from the open spaces of Bodmin Moor, there are numerous picturesque walks both from the house around the country lanes or over the moors. The yurt paddock is a spacious area with just three individually crafted yurts. It is wonderfully quiet and yet Liskeard market town is only a very short drive away where shops and supermarkets can be found. The holiday apartment is completely self contained and has its own entrance through an attractive conservatory.

There is a shared wood fired hot tub which guests can enjoy.

What makes this barn unique

Our luxury yurts were inspired by a visit to a game park in Tanzania. Each yurt has a lovely contemporary feel and they are beautifully furnished with light oak furniture and with a king sized beds and single two single futons. Each yurt has its own Kitchen area within the barn and a private shower room.

The holiday apartment accommodation is an upside down construction with the spacious bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and the kitchen/lounge area with deck access on the upper floor. The apartment has a very spacious feel and is decorated in a contemporary boutique style in subtle pastel colours. The king sized bed has a comfortable Vi-sprung mattress ensuring a good night's sleep for all guests.

A fantastic break away

  • 5 of 5

A brilliant set up with excellent facilities. Stayed as a group and rented all three yurts which worked really well. The Cowshed is a fantastic addition to the site with all it's amenities meaning that this is truly glamping in style!

You have to visit!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th visit to the Luxury Cornish Yurts in 4 years and we have booked again for next year already. That says it all really!! From the moment you arrive all the stresses and strains of normal life disappear. Lindsey and Dave look after your every need during your stay and ensure you have the greatest time. We have experienced weather extremes on our visits from scorching sunshine to named storms and, regardless, we have had the very best of holidays. The yurts are comfy and the cow shed has everything you need to cook and entertain yourselves and the children. Collecting fresh eggs, making dens and running round the field playing games are a few of the things our children love and the proximity to both of the Cornish coasts and especially Talland Bay make the yurts well placed for many excursions. Our family love the yurts. Thank you to Lindsey and Dave for helping our family create fond memories.

Definitely 'luxury' yurts

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good holiday here that we've booked to go again - it's the only place we've ever been to twice. The yurts are just gorgeous, with proper beds and bed linen. The Cow Shed kitchen set up is fantastic - very sociable with a separate area for each yurt to use with everything you need to prepare a proper meal. The showers are brilliant - it's a million miles away from camping that's for sure - and there's electricity for when you want to dry your hair after!

I cannot recommend this place enough. Lindsey and Ian were great hosts, helping us with our bags and advice on places to eat, visit, etc. We had the best of times. Our boys met up with the children in the other 2 yurts and played in the field, whilst we sat in the evenings with a glass of wine watching them all have fun. What more could you ask for!

Fantastic fun and sooo relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here (family of four - two adults, two children) and had the most fabulous holiday. The yurts are just gorgeous. The whole Cow Shed communal kitchen area is fantastic - a real home from home kitchen with everything you need. The showers are just lovely - it's a million miles away from camping and definitely 'luxurious'. Ian and Lyndsey are great hosts - they made us feel so welcome, helped with bags, places to eat, visit etc. We had such a good time we've booked to go again. It's the only place we've ever been to twice! If you want somewhere to relax, with masses of room for the kids to run around and play, then this is just the place. Sitting on the decking with a glass of wine whilst your children make friends with whoever's in the other two yurts is a lovely way to while away an evening. I could not recommend this place more :) (It's even fun in the rain!)
