15th - 19th August mid-week walking and foraging yoga retreat, Devon

Stay immersed in nature at our yoga retreat in Devon this August. Surrounded by countryside next to the Dartmoor National Park enjoy walking, foraging, yoga and vegan food.

15th August 2022

Welcome to a true haven on this mid-week Devon 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 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.

The privileged position of this home means we are walking distance onto Dartmoor, famed for it’s 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!

Beautiful Dartmoor

Although Dartmoor may seem vast and wild it in fact holds a deep and rich history with 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 hikers 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 forgaing walks and talks to learn about the edible and medicinal plants accessible.
