Columbus Sound Prepares Spot For Yeotown

Yeotown is a successful health retreat in the heart of North Devon. It’s bucolic setting and forward-thinking style has made it a favorite of health enthusiasts from across the globe and now, Columbus sound gets to prepare an advertisement spot for this prestigious retreat.

Personal Visit


What better way to prepare for an advertisement campaign than through a personal visit to the site? You can be sure that our staff of reporters were fair and deliberate in their selection of who should cover this great opportunity. They literally drew straws to see who would get to go. The big winner was treated to 5 days in this amazingly wonderful setting, and is pleased to share her experiences with you, here.

Atlantic Ocean

Can I just say that the Atlantic is only 15 minutes away from Yeotown? That is, a 15 minute walk. Imagine packing a picnic lunch, made with fresh produce from area farmers, and walking to what seems to be the edge of the world. There, on the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, you enjoy your lunch, leaving the parings for the seagulls.


There are plenty of opportunities to hike in this area. The country setting, with meadows and hills, is restorative in nature. Who knows what you will encounter on your walk – a doe and her fawn, a curious rabbit, or the sight of a graceful hawk on the wing.


Perhaps one of my favorite aspect of, besides the hikes and the ocean, was the dining. Their menu is based on a seasonal supply of local fruits vegetables, and meats. The catch of the day from local fishermen is tastefully, and healthfully, prepared by professionals. The creative plating is beautiful, as well, and you’ll find that you are enjoying your healthy, organic meal more than you ever thought possible.


You can take yoga classes several times a day. In fact, you can book a yoga retreat with specific instructors if you want to. There are also drop in yoga groups, and in the UK, you can take a short yoga retreat just for the weekend.

Lodging and Amenities


The lodging at Yeotown is luxurious, to say the least. The beds welcome your weary body when you have spent the day in fitness classes, hiking, and doing yoga. The floors are heated, and spa treatments are sure to get you back on the right track. This is a great place to enjoy a detox retreat, since you will have excellent dining as very comfortable lodging. Take advantages of massages, saunas, and much more. You can go to The Sanctuary and, in front of the fire, have a massage as part of your detox program. There are several different retreats available throughout the year, each with a different theme.

If you want to go overseas, Yeotown has yoga retreats in Bali and in Sri Lanka each year. Not only that, you can hire the entire place for your family get together or for the office.

Columbus Sounds And New Projects – Business and Online

Columbus Sound has begun a new project. In cooperation with the efforts of a local museum of art, Columbus Sound is developing a soundtrack of ambient music to correlate with each area of display.

Up the Ante

Anyone who has been to the great theme parks such as Busch Gardens or SeaWorld knows that one unifying element is the music. From one section of the park to the other, there are sound effects and/or music that help to establish a mood. It not only adds to the ambience, it helps to establish navigation patterns throughout the park.

In the local museum, navigations is not such a problem, but they have asked Columbus Sound to up the ante with a soundtrack that enhances the visitors’ experiences without being invasive. This will be one of the first museums in the state that actually uses sound effects and music to create a multi-sensory experience for visitors.

Quality Partnerships

Columbus Sound is working with a local sound warehouse to develop a speaker system appropriate for each area of display. The speakers will be integrated into the displays by experienced set designers from the local University Theater Arts department.

This challenging project is thoroughly mapped out by the engineers at Columbus Sound, with a wire harness designed for each room and linked to a master mixing board. In every place possible, the company is using state-of-the-art wireless receivers and transmitters to lessen the impact of installation on the displays. The sound warehouse is pulling out all of the stops in finding the most cutting edge equipment for use in this project.

Other Contributors

Some music being used in the soundtracks put together by Columbus Sound are pulled from public access archives. Others are especially recorded, in the Columbus studios, by local musicians and Foley artists from TV production companies. The funding for this extensive project is provided by a state grant.


Columbus Sound expresses gratitude for this opportunity, because not many sound studios get to take on such a large, unique project. Their marketing company, LogicalJack, will be promoting the results with an online marketing blitz. Not only will the results be fully documented on the Columbus website, the grand opening will be advertised on social media outlets. LogicalJack has converted Columbus’ website to interact with mobile devices as well, to broaden public access. With this initiative, people shopping for the day will be able to bring up information about local activities that are easy to read on their hand-held devices.

The company is excited with progress on this project. The sound track is coming together very well, with talented people contributing through performances and original compositions. The great equipment is providing excellent sound in the test phases, with no feedback and very little if any noise. Sound mixing and recording has already begun for several of the exhibits, and Columbus expects a completed project by the end of the summer.

Thanks to LogicalJack and the help of many talented people, the grand opening should be a vast success. With our new business ventures in had, Columbus sound is looking ahead to an exciting future.
