Dartmoor, Devon – New Year 29th December 2023 – 2nd January 2024
New Year Yoga Retreat Dartmoor, Devon
Enjoy a different way to see in the new year on our new year retreat in Dartmoor, Devon. With hikes on the moors, setting intentions workshop, a new year celebratory meal and yoga twice a day, start 2024 with clarity and positivity.
Welcome to a true haven on this new year yoga retreat in Dartmoor, Devon this December. 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.
Spend 4 nights taking time out for yourself after a busy and indulgent festive season. Reset and have a gentle detox with plant-based foods and twice daily yoga, breathwork and meditation. Enjoy a setting intentions workshop to really get clear on what you want for 2024 and then see new year in with a celebratory feast and great company. Go home feeling refreshed and positive for 2024. Also enjoy hikes out onto the Dartmoor moors to connect to nature and yourself.
This 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 itself 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 aga and views out onto the trees and gardens.
There are two yoga shalas, each with their 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.

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.
