This was a beautiful retreat for me and my family. My partner and I travelled to Marthrown of Mabie with our daugther to get married within the forest. Pam and her staff are more than willing to assist in anything you ask, and have helped our family to have fond memories of our stay and ceremony.
We spent three days at Marthrown in a yurt which had everything we needed when we arrived. Opening the door of the yurt to the forest and nature was all we wanted and that just what we got. The yurt had a wicked burner that kept us warm throughout the day and night, with little fuss. Plently of kitchenware and crockery to help make breakie and dinner. And games to relax with in the evening. I would recommend taking your own duvets and pillows as these are not provided.
We spent both nights in the hot tub under the stars/drizzle and most of the day chilling in the forest or walking. There are many tracks you could walk, of all difficulties, on the door step of the yurt. There is also a park half way down the track of Marthworn which I would also recommend to families. You could rent bikes too at the bottom of the track, but we thought it was quite pricey, especially when we have our own at home!! There is also a farm shop for treats of cheese and chutneys!
If you wanted peace and quiet you could deffinately get this, or if you wanted to mix with others there is a communial room and kitchen on site. There is also use of a tipee and saxon roundhouse, which above, the forest opens to let in sunshine and light. A truely wonderful place. These are all spaced out enough so there is no distraction if you want the peacefulness.
I could not have asked for more than what Pam and Mike provided..a chilled, natural, inspirational retreat for closet hippees or those just wanting to get out there and relax in nature.
