The venue | immerse yourself in nature

The venue consists of two historic converted barns which offer modest yet comfortable accommodation. There is a spacious kitchen/dining area where communal meals can be enjoyed. A large spacious yoga space with high beamed ceilings, plenty of natural light, and views out into the surrounding gardens. There are many communal areas to enjoy peaceful moments including a lounge room, rear garden with large fire bowl, enclosed courtyard garden with campfire, outdoor seating areas, and there is also a separate sauna facility.

Surrounding the barns you will be greeted with the beautiful Devon countryside, with a few pathways leading to the adjoining land. This is privately owned land called ‘Yeoland’ with permissible access for guests. There is a circular path to the moorland lookout, and shared access to an orchard and labyrinth.

The site adheres to the following Eco-Practices: The building runs on solar and green energy suppliers, produces fresh filtered water from the on-site borehole, is kept toasty by underfloor heating and uses only sustainable products.

The nearest train station is Totnes (10 minute drive away) which can be easily reached from Bristol and London.

The Food | nourish & support

All the food will be vegetarian / plant-based (vegan), delicious and nutritionally balanced. Our chef will cook 3 meals each day to be enjoyed together. There will also be fresh fruit and nuts available throughout the day for snacking. We’re more than happy to cater for any allergies or intolerances, just let us know!

Holistic Therapies | Replenish & rejuvenate

We shall also have the wonderful Emilie who will offer a range of holistic therapies over the weekend. Emilie has a wealth of experience and has been practicing massage for over 12 years. She will be offering 45 minute treatments combining deep tissue, aromatherapy or rejuvenating facial massage techniques. The treatments are £55 and places are limited, so it’s first come, first serve! Let us know if you would like to book one.
