How Feather Down brought me back to life
At Feather Down we are passionate about the benefits of dis-connecting from your devices and re-connecting with each other and nature. In this interview with Tamara Burgess, who manages our Acton Scott site in Shropshire, it's clear that this sort of healing is not just for Feather Down guests. Those who are lucky enough to work in the outdoors amidst our canvas hideaways can benefit too.
