2The Koyts


Our Koyts

Stay on retreat amid the wild beauty of Bodmin Moor in one of our Koyts. Inspired by Cornish ‘Quoits’ (also called Dolmens or Cromlechs), which were a type of portal or spiritual chamber that date from the Neolithic period. They are among the most ancient stone monuments in Cornwall where life enhancing spiritual rituals would occur. They signify ascension, connection and journeying to new chapters of life. We hope that our Koyts will help provide comfort and warmth whilst you connect and ascend in the wild magic of Cabilla.
