Autumn, the perfect time to take stock.

Autumn 2017 at the Yurt Retreat

Autumn at the Yurt Retreat

Hi there

This year we have been a bit quieter on social media but with Autumn now here its a great time to take stock and catch up with you about the past season and the exciting new developments for 2018.


April 2017 saw the birth of my son and its incredible how much more efficient you have to become to manage all the additional jobs. Its certainly been a long 6 months learning to parent but we are very blessed to have a happy, inquisitive boy who smiles easily which makes it all worth it.


That doesn’t mean that we have been resting on our laurels as far as the Yurt Retreat is concerned. Far from it! We began the year with our newly restyled Yurts which looked fantastic and we’ve had some great feedback through the season.

In addition to the Yurts we have been working on our new Woodland Sauna building. We are just waiting on a new string of exterior lights and we are looking forward to opening it in a weeks time. We have chosen an Infra red sauna as the health benefits seem even better than a traditional one and we have installed a fabulous outdoor shower but it’s really all about the unspoilt woodland views. Its going to be an amazing place to relax!

In the background we have also been working on another project to upgrade one of the Yurts to a proper wooden roundhouse with an integrated bathroom. Thanks to the fantastic team at Rotunda Roundhouses ( we have settled on a 6.5 meter building that will have its own kitchen, be beautifully designed and double glazed and will mean an end to the trip outdoors to use the loo! Now that the Yurts have come down for the Winter we will be getting stuck into this and we are really looking forward to a grand opening in March next year.

Thanks to all of you who have stayed with us this year. Don’t forget that the Birdhouse runs all year round although this Winter is already booking up fast. We look forward to welcoming you back with us again soon and hope that you have a great Autumn.
