Barn Owls come to The Yurt Retreat!

It has been an interesting time at The Yurt Retreat.  Barn Owls have been in decline as their habitat and food has greatly reduced across the UK. Paul and his brother Andrew set out to create a happy Barn Owl habitat at the farm, which is the home to The Yurt Retreat. Following guidelines they created a house for a breeding pair of Barn Owls.

Whilst they were looking for a good spot for the house, they saw a Barn Owl nest- which was fantastic news. Making sure they weren’t in the same patch, Paul and Andrew found a magnificent oak tree for the house they had made. You might be able to hear the owls when you visit and stay in one of the Yurts at The Yurt Retreat.
