Five yurts will now installed at the site between Farway and Northleigh.
Plans to transform an agricultural field between Farway and Northleigh into a ‘glamping’ facility have been rubber stamped.
The scheme, which was proposed by Heather and John Lister, of Holnest Farm in Farway, was approved by district planners at a recent meeting.
In their application, the Listers said they wanted to make the field into a ‘modern, rural tourist facility’ for Devon with its roots ‘firmly in the agricultural landscape’.
They added that installing five yurts at their farm will help the ‘enterprise viability’ of their farm, offer a new attraction alongside existing smallholding activities and create new jobs.
