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 ‘Feel good food’ 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.​If you are searching for a magical, unique and unforgettable experience over four days and three nights (long weekend) or our four nights & five days (midweek) then this retreat is for you...
