The Villa

The house itself is a radically bold and beautiful eco building made from slate, wood, concrete and glass. It was designed by eminent architects Mclean Quinlan and features a box-like open plan top floor that gives vast, uninterrupted panoramic views across the Camel Estuary, and the surrounding countryside, which is an area of outstanding ‘Natural Beauty’. Inside, everything is streamlined and uncluttered. The modern furniture is sourced from many bespoke creators and Conran. oversized and deeply comfortable with lots of creamy linen and warm oak. The exquisite design incorporates a Tom Dixon candelabra and Sophie Ryder sculptures.

 

Surrounding Area

The imaginative and magical garden is every bit as well-planned as the house, with a luxurious cedar hot tub and a stylish fire pit being two of the many features you’ll discover as you stroll around. It was designed by Mary Reynolds (who won the coveted Gold Medal for her ‘Celtic garden’ at the Chelsea Flower Show). Look out for the Myburgh Designed copper swinging pumpkin seat, the Sophie Ryder sculptures and the fire-pit!

Peppered with sandy beaches popular amongst the surfing communities, this stunning part of North Cornwall is ripe for exploration and with exquisite views, regularly showcased on the BBC prime-time drama ‘Poldark’. Padstow is a haven for holidaymakers, offering a wide range of attractions, shops and restaurants (including Rick Stein’s famous seafood restaurant).

If coastal walks are more your thing, you’ll be seduced by the wild, romantic coastline surrounding Wadebridge and Padstow. The delightful village of Port Isaac is also worth a visit – home to Doc Martin and the Fisherman’s Friends. Whilst the whole area is Poldark Country.

 

Yoga

All of our retreats are pitched towards all levels of yoga – from newcomers to skilled yogis – our Retreat Leaders will always adapt classes to accommodate the abilities of our attendees.

During our retreats, guests will enjoy Vinyasa Flow, Restorative and Yin yoga sessions along with meditative elements. Your retreat leader will run two yoga sessions daily, in the morning where guests will undertake a more dynamic class and in the evening where the focus will be around relaxation (see example itinerary: Alpine Retreat Itinerary). All classes are optional and aim to rejuvenate our guests, whilst also helping you to build on your practice.

This retreat will be led by wellness expert and yoga teacher of 25 years, Jennifer Ellis (view profile).

 

Food

We believe that on a retreat our guests should eat well and plentifully and therefore we employ a private chef to cater for  your meals. Our recipe creator will cook a range of healthy and delicious meals using fresh, local produce and a buffet brunch will be available every morning until 12.

During the retreat, guests will also enjoy one evening meal at a local authentic restaurant.

Our meals are vegetarian and pescatarian. We are happy to accommodate food preferences or allergens where possible, though specific dietary requirements will incur a small surcharge of £50.

(This is because many specialist products i.e. gluten free / vegan are not easily available in retreat locations and thus need to be sourced further afield.)
