NEWBURY, UK

24th - 27th May, 2019

(Bank holiday weekend)

BY POPULAR DEMAND (thanks!), A LUXURY UK WEEKEND RETREAT!

Escape the buzz of London just an hour’s travel away; this dreamy spot in the Newbury countryside will be all ours for the last bank holiday weekend in May.

We all know how important it is to get away and take time to nourish our bodies, minds and souls, but it’s not always that easy to find the time, hey. Well, this one requires minimal effort to get there and no extra days of holiday to be taken - whooop! - but still offers a real haven of rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, reset, really good food… any more ‘r’s?!

I’m really, really looking forward to it and would love to have you with me.

From Friday evening to Monday afternoon, we’ll take over these cosy and super-stylishly converted farm buildings (modelled shamelessly, the owner tells, me on Soho Farm House -but without the pretensions!), set in acres of lush green fields and away from the stresses and distractions of daily life.

Daily meditations, yoga twice a day, sound healing, voice work, journalling and ‘dreamweaving’ sessions; asana breakdown workshops countryside walks, cosy evenings with good conversation, and long nights of deep sleep… your soul will thank you!

All of that will be fuelled by 3 seriously delicious, fresh, plant-based meals each day, cooked by my good pal and incredible chef, Serena (a.k.a. Luna Wellbeing). Teas, coffees and fresh fruit will be available to grab at all times of day.

I KNOW, what a weekend!

I could tell you more about the rooms but the pictures kinda speak for themselves, hey? It’s a beautiful place; a real home-away-from-home, and we are lucky enough to be one of the first few retreats ever hosted here.

Yoga will be in the stunningly remodelled and underfloor-heated barn, all meals will be taken together, family-style in the bright and airy farmhouse kitchen, and evenings can be lounged away in various snug spots of the house or out under the stars and around a bonfire, if the weather is kind to us!
