See the Birdhouse come to life

We were lucky enough to catch the last of the summer light with our new video of the Birdhouse.

The Treehouse is our latest addition to the Glamping here at The Yurt Retreat and we thought that the best way to celebrate it’s first season open was to commission the good folks at Fennec films to capture some of the  experience of a stay.

We hope you enjoy!

Taking the Yurts down for the end of the season at The Yurt Retreat

How has it come around so fast?

This time of year always seems to sneak up on us. Suddenly the trees are rushing into their stunning autumnal colours and it’s time to put the Yurts to bed for the winter.

Luckily, this year, we have our new treehouse open until December so there’s still a warm comfy place to tuck yourself away in and watch autumn unfold.

Thanks to all of our guests for making 2015 another great year and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

We thought that it would be fun to make a stop frame movie of the Yurts coming down. I hope that you enjoy it!

Barn Owls come to The Yurt Retreat

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.



Evening meditation

An evening meditation in the last of the Bluebells at the Yurt Retreat. Let the stress of your working week melt away as you listen to the bird song and enjoy the beauty of the bluebells.

If you can’t be with us at The Yurt Retreat this weekend, we thought we would bring the last of the bluebells to you. If this has inspired you to come and stay with us another time, you can look at the live availibility booking page here.

And if you have enjoyed the bird song do check out the Bird House treehouse that is new for this year.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Blooming Lovely Glamping!

The best blossoms this year at The Yurt Retreat.

The best blossoms this year at The Yurt Retreat.

We are blown away by how beautiful the blossoms have been this year. The trees are all weighed down with scented petals, making the bees happy as they go about collecting pollen.

Why not head down to The Yurt Retreat to see for yourself before they all fade away. Sitting out under the stars with your camp fire friends toasting marshmallows; what better way to start the holiday season?

As The Yurt Retreat’s home is in the middle of cider country.  You can pick up a jug of scrumpy on your way or enjoy some cider Brandy. Foraging for local produce was never so much fun!

Do go and check out our live availability calendar to see what dates are left for you to come and enjoy nature in luxury. We look forward to having you come and stay.
