Yurts unobtrusive in rural setting

The siting of two yurts at a farm in the Dartmoor national park was granted retrospective permission due to their limited impact on the character of the area and their ability to diversify tourist accommodation.

An inspector observed that the yurts were made of timber covered with canvas and felt and were sited on a wooden base. In his opinion, given their limited scale and number, they fitted unobtrusively into the landscape and improved the diversity and choice of tourist accommodation which was compatible with the national park designation.
