Our sacred & magical retreat venue is tucked away in the heart of the rolling Dorset hills, where numerous artists & writers, such as Thomas Hardy, have found inspiration.

This breath-taking retreat space includes a beautiful yoga Shala, built on a magical crystal grid, with heated infrared floor for a deeply healing experience with ambient sounds, soft lighting, and soothing views of the Dorset countryside.

You can develop and expand your yoga, Pilates and meditation practices throughout this retreat, whilst learning about crystal healing, intuitive movement, mindfulness & meditation. We teach a variety of mixed ability yoga styles to suit everybody, beginners to advanced levels are all welcome.

You can enjoy access to the wellness Spa, including a luxury indoor swimming pool, spa changing facilities, poolside relaxation area, infra red sauna and a hot tub grotto. Adding the calming element of water to our retreat will leave you feeling totally relaxed and re energised.

All Brunches & dinners and morning juices will be freshly prepared, plant based, nutritionally enriched onsite by our talented retreat chef & nutritionist Lucie Simon of the ‘Eat fresh and feel good’ kitchen.

Each guest room is tastefully designed with comfort and style in mind. Facilities Include luxurious, contemporary accommodations, triple, twin or private rooms, with WiFi & on-site parking.

Our retreat is located 3 hours drive from London and within 2 hours from London Waterloo to Gillingham.
