Take time out and immerse yourself in the healing energy of nature and stay in beautiful shepherds huts in your very own private woodland. With a main barn, hammocks, a fire pit and outdoor dining.
This summer is the time to get back to nature and connect with its beauty after being stuck at home for so long. Stay in private woodland with shepherds huts, a straw bale barn for yoga, an outdoor kitchen and lots of hammocks for our glamping eco yoga retreat in the stunning area of the Surrey Hills only 1 hour from the centre of London.
Each shepherds hut is spread out in the woodland for space and privacy and stay on your own, with a friend or loved one. Bring your own tent if you love the outdoors and want to make it more affordable. Each shepherds hut has a wood burner if you feel like getting cosy.
Surrounded by fields, relax in a hammock and read a book or take one of the walks through the woods to the highest point in the South East where you can see The City on one side and the South Downs towards the south coast on the other.
Start your day with an energising yoga class – outdoors in nature and then enjoy dining al fresco for all meals – weather permitting whenever possible!
After a day of chilling or walking, unwind with evening yin and restorative yoga and yoga Nidra followed by a vegan and vegetarian feast.
This venue is fully off-grid and low impact on the environment and nature. If you are looking for low carbon breaks this is the one.

PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING: With the latest developments in the pandemic and lateral flow tests being available to everyone, we have decided to ask that everyone take 2 lateral flow tests prior to coming on retreat in the UK, so that if it comes back positive you have time to get a PCR test to confirm a positive test result. We ask for a negative PCR test for foreign holidays. That way we can attempt to create covid free retreats.
We take Coronavirus seriously. This is a predominantly outdoor yoga retreat and we have reduced numbers to allow for social distancing and we have safety measures in place for your wellbeing. Please see our COVID hub where you can find out exactly what our safety measures, financial protection, flexible booking and planet promises are.
A twin/double shepherds hut is for two people sharing either two single beds or a double bed.
Over the 13 years that AY has been organising our bespoke retreats, we have always made sure that we work with exceptional yoga teachers who are dedicated to their practice and live and breathe yoga, so you can feel safe in the knowledge that you will be inspired, relaxed and tensions dissolved by the end of your retreat with us.
Our classes for our glamping eco yoga retreat are held in either the straw bale barn and will be either 2 groups of 6 depending on the latest government guidelines or outside if the weather allows.
Each yoga class is designed in response to the energetic needs of the group, and this is reflected in the overall pace and rhythm of your yoga retreat. We ensure that the level and dynamics of the yoga classes are in harmony with the participants, the time of the day and the activities enjoyed that day.
Enjoy an energising morning yoga class to stretch out the tensions of life and feel stronger and more vibrant and relax in the evening with a slower more restorative practice.
