Rachael Brown | A Bit More Soul | A retreat for photographers & creatives

I hosted A Bit More Soul – a photography retreat for Photographers from across the world at Oasis Yurts in 2018 – not long after it had all opened. Jo and Rusty went out of their way to make us feel welcome and were adaptable with our often crazy requests to make the Lodge and Yurts work for our 50 attendees. It was a wonderful hub to bring everyone together each day for our talks and small group workshops. We also appreciated Jo and Rusty’s amazing local knowledge which they shared with us which helped to enhance the stay of our attendees. The Yurts, Lodge and surrounding area surpassed our expectations and we would recommend this little slice of paradise without any hesitation
