This yoga retreat has unfortunately been cancelled due to Coronavirus.
The Government announcement in February means that Yoga On A Shoestring are not able to run retreats before 17 May. Sadly it means this retreat has been cancelled.
We head to this Somerset yoga retreat, in luxurious setting of the 42 Acres retreat space in Frome, Somerset for a magical late Spring weekend of yoga. A wonderful opportunity to revitalise in nature and enjoy reconnecting with yourself and others.
Escape to the country for a perfect late Spring weekend yoga retreat. Set in the luxurious retreat centre 42 Acres in Somerset, you will be wrapped up and surrounded in all that is relaxation. From award-winning food to sumptuous surroundings and the breath-taking countryside, this yoga retreat is your time to renew, recharge, and reconnect to the world in a more balanced, purposeful way. You will leave the weekend retreat feeling refreshed, restored and full of love and vitality for yourself and your world.
Set in 42 acres of private land, this beautiful Somerset yoga retreat space is encircled by seven hundred acres of ancient forest. Sustainability and comfort are at the forefront of the 42 acres vision, with reclaimed materials used to outfit the interiors of the property, plus all of the power is renewable and self generated through biomass and solar.
42 Acres is surrounded by 700 further acres of ancient forest. Its ethos centres around sustainability, working with reclaimed materials and renewable energy to create an experience that is both joyful and luxurious. In the main house, skylights, original exposed beams and stand-alone baths await in guest bedrooms decorated with beautifully sourced tiles, fabrics and linens. Communal areas such as the library, the snug and the reading space evoke a stylish, eclectic and cosy ambience. Most recently, a magnificent 30ft yurt has been erected, and this plays host to many of the yoga classes. Beyond the main house are the quaintly named Deer Cottages, possibly in honour of their namesakes, which pass by peacefully from time to time.
Accommodation options range from dormitories to the master-suite, twin, double and single occupancy rooms. The main house offers the deluxe mini-dorm, master suite and twin shared bathroom rooms and single en-suite rooms. Set just a few steps away from the main house, Deer Cottages are all en-suite rooms offering twin, double and single occupancy options. Swallows Barn houses six single occupancy deluxe rooms with shared bathroom facilities. All rooms have luxury linen and towels. The venue has several communal spaces for relaxing including a welcoming kitchen with cosy chairs by the fire, a library and a reading space.
Delicious local, organic food will be served throughout the retreat. All meals will be vegetarian.
