Valentine’s day is here and gone so quickly. However, if you have a special person in your life, and you decided (or forgot!) to do something special today, why not treat them to a stay in a beautiful eco yurt later in the year.

Getting away from your own home and going somewhere special can do you the world of good. But you don’t have to travel far to do this. Stay local this year, enjoy a beautiful zero waste location and explore the stunning local heritage rich countryside.

Emma at The Barn at Lees Farm is offering any Shropshire resident a 10% discount on any booking made to her beautiful Shropshire retreat*. All you need to do is quote ‘Mossy Life’ when making your booking. Plus there will be a treat for those arriving by public transport, on foot or by bike.

The Barn at Lees Farm offers both The Annex and The Yurt as zero waste getaway locations in the heart of the Ironbridge Gorge.

Both options have wood fired hot tubs, recycling points, food composting, grey water flushing, rainwater harvesting, air source heating, eco friendly refillable hand wash and soaps, no chemicals, and locally sourced kiln dried wood used for the wood burners.

Not only are these retreats environmentally friendly, but they are beautifully cosy. Emma lives next door in the barn with her family and lovingly looks after the retreats. She is a source of knowledge for local walks and things to do in the area. From the doorstep you can walk virtually road free all the way through to Coalport Tile Museum and Maws Craft Centre, meander further into Ironbridge, or just explore the acres of woodland that surround the immediate local area.

The Barn is nestled off the main road up a track right next to a field surrounded in woodlands. You can wake up in the morning and see the stunning shire horses grazing in their field before they head off to pull the carts through the streets of Blists Hill Museum, which is just a short walk away.

Treating your loved one doesn’t have to be done on one specific day of the year, surprising them when they least expect it can be half the fun! But sometimes we all need a Valentine’s day to give us a reminder that expressing our love with a gesture of any size, can bring a wonderful smile to someone’s day. Thoughtful gifts and getaways for an eco-conscious individual can be difficult. We think booking a treat here could be just the solution you are looking for.

*10% discount available to any Shropshire or Telford and Wrekin resident for bookings made before 31st August 2021 when quoting ‘Mossy Life’. Bookings subject to availability. Discount can not be swapped with an alternative. Can not be used in conjunction with any other offer.

Full contact details for Emma can be found in the directory: The Barn at Lees Farm.
