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!

Made Unboxed has featured the Birdhouse!

Made Unboxed has featured the BirdHouse Treehouse at The Yurt Retreat! It was a fun day with a photographer sent by Made to capture all of the design features and products that we had used to decorate the Treehouse with. We are pleased with the results and can’t wait for you to see them when you come to stay. And if you love what you see, you can buy some of the furnishings on Made.com.

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.
