A Birthday Surprise

I feel like when it comes to birthdays, I get more excited than those who's birthday it is. A few months back I started looking for something to book for Adam's 22nd but I didn't just want a hotel or Air b&b so I spent hours searching for something different that wasn't a 6 hour drive, crazy priced and was available on his birthday. I come across the Yurt Retreat near Yeovil which is around a 2 hour drive from Southampton. I originally found the three Yurts and a treehouse, but when it come to actually booking it the treehouse had been taken on that date and I found 'The Roundhouse Nest'. It was an in between of the two and looked incredible, I kept where we were going a surprise until we got there and it was so worth the wait.

Fast forward a few moths and we're now back from our two night stay and all we want to do is go back! Everything about it was incredible. It's a family run business and as it's so small you can see the thought which went into every detail in the house. The interior was decorated beautifully, there was an outdoor bath (as if the huge tub in the bathroom wasn't enough), amazing views of fields and a private outdoor fire pit. The photos barely do it justice, it was the whole feel of the place which made us never want to leave.

We spent the evenings by the fire pit roasting marshmallows, eating camembert and talking for hours and hours with a few drinks our hands. In the mornings a full English breakfast also had to be made (with some birthday cake on the side) which you can see in the top picture but every time we left for the day, we couldn't wait to come back again and get cosy with a movie and snacks in bed enjoying the evening.

We have already agreed that we're going back in the future and could.t recommend it more to anyone. It was a magical stay and really set the standard high for any ideas for next years birthday!!
