Set in it’s own magical four acre water meadow known as The Loiter-Pin field, we have a fully lined 16ft yurt available for your very own private hire. The yurt is sumptuously decorated with a comfy kingsize bed and kept warm on the cooler summer evenings with a cozy wood burner. The camp is fully kitted out with an under cover kitchen area, outside fire pit, the Rum Baaba (land only) Boat, hot shower and compost toilet.
Electricity is available via a silent suitcase generator upon request. The yurt is right beside the river with a jetty for you to lounge around on in the sun. If you fancy a swim the river water is clean due to the whole of Hooe level being under conservation. This amazing camp is ideal for couples for a romantic weekend, a humble fishing trip, for the true nature lover looking to find some rare gems in the surrounding flora and fauna, or just simply to take time out and relax.

Burning Heart River Camp
Jul 18, 2020
My partner and I loved our magical stay at Burning Heart River Camp - we didn't want to leave! The place has a very charming, relaxed and cosy feel. We loved swimming in the river every day, and we enjoyed the easy walk to the Lamb Inn (the one you can see across the fields from the camp) for a tasty final night dinner. Lying back in the outdoor bath amongst the flowers is something we'll never forget. We felt very close to nature and witnessed a whole host of amazing wildlife. On top of all that, the shower is hot and consistent, the yurt feels luxuriously snug and the bed is massive and ridiculously comfy. There are lots of different options for cooking (we just kept it simple and used the gas hobs which worked well), and the compost loo was one of the least smelly I've experienced. If it had been colder we would definitely have made use of the wood burners and fire pit. Communication with Claire and Pete was really easy - we felt like they were on hand should we need them, but at the same time they left us just to enjoy our retreat away from it all. You can also tell that you could have a pretty amazing party there. We would totally recommend it and we can't wait to be back.

Wow - what a place!
We booked BHRC for a hen party. It was everything we could have hoped for and more. Claire and Pete are just amazing, always on hand and super helpful. We loved our chilled out weekend of BBQs, discos in the barn, swimming in the river and yoga in the field. Can't wait to go back!

Magical spot in the wilderness!
This is the most magical spot tucked away in your own little wilderness, surrounded by meadows and a beautiful river. We were a group of 14 people and we had such a fun weekend here! Claire and Pete were so helpful and everything was very easy to organise. We had a range of weather but it didn’t matter at all, during the day it was sunny so we had bbqs out in the meadows, went swimming in the river and when it rained at night we got cosy in the barn with a log fire and danced until we dropped in the disco caravan! We hired all the caravans/bell tents which were all very comfy and warm. The tin kitchen worked well too - basic facilities but we didn’t need more. There is also a (surprisingly) good and hot shower! All in all I couldn’t recommend it more - will definitely be back! Thank you!

This was our second stay at Burning Heart River Camp, this time with our friends, who were camping. It's just such a beautiful place and the improvements Claire and Pete have made this year to the barn have really taken it to another level. I've not found another place that others so much serenity and natural beauty, plus it can be party central if that's what you want. We'll be coming back for many years to come! Thank you guys x
