June Walking & Foraging Yoga Retreat Dartmoor, Devon
Dartmoor, 5th - 9th June 2024
Enjoy a walking and foraging yoga retreat in Dartmoor, Devon. With hikes on the moors right outside the door and learn all about foragining plus yoga twice a day, relax in the June sunshine.
Welcome to a true haven on this 4 night Dartmoor yoga retreat. Nestled within its own valley on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park, this tranquil space instantly feels like a place you want to call home.
This mid-week Devon yoga retreat is all about using this special landscape to feel grounded, connected and part of the natural world. Surrounded by ancient woodland and a flowing moorland brook you will be fully surrounded by the ancient and sacred landscape. With vast, extensive gardens that are as wild as they are beautiful and stone circles and secret corners to rest and refresh in.
The property it’s self feels as homely and comforting as the surroundings outside. Recently renovated, the rooms are simple, clean and very comfortable with a mix of single occupancy and twin rooms with en-suite and shared bathroom options available. The kitchen feels like the true hub of the home with an agar and views out onto the trees and gardens.
There are two yoga shalas, each with its own unique qualities. One is within the main house and feels cosy and nurturing, perfect for deeply restorative and meditative practices. The other is within the gardens, its glass walls giving you a sense of space and connection to the world outside.
The privileged position of this home means we are within walking distance of Dartmoor, famed for its vast and wild spaces. As part of your retreat, you will enjoy a guided hike out onto the moor as well as a guided foraging walk to learn more about the land and the edible and medicinal plants available. Your foraging guide is also an expert wildlife tracker with a vast knowledge base of UK flora and fauna species so you will have a huge amount of fun while also learning!

Dartmoor is infamous for its vast moorland where Dartmoor ponies roam its craggy landscape. Stunning forests, rivers, wetlands and tors (rock formations) break up the open moors and create one of the most diverse ecosystems in the country.
Although Dartmoor may seem vast and wild it in fact holds a deep and rich history of human settlement. This incredible history can be found across the National Park and the fascinating stories that it holds. A walk across Dartmoor feels like stepping back in time. With a never-ending number of trails and paths, it is a hiker’s haven and with beautiful villages dotted around, accessible too.
On our retreats around Dartmoor, we take the time to truly enjoy this unique landscape and everything its diversity has to offer. Not only do we go hiking to experience the beauty of it but also enjoy wild foraging walks and talks to learn about the edible and medicinal plants accessible. Our venue is perfectly positioned to do just that, being surrounded by woodland, the moorland brook and walking distance out and onto the moor.

The Yoga classes on this yoga retreat in Dartmoor will be split between the glass-walled garden studio and the cosy main house studio.
