Yoga Retreats & Wellbeing Breaks in England

Fast Track New Forest Fitness Retreat

Fast Track Fitness Retreats are heading to the New Forest for our 2021 autumn retreat. Mews Hill in Fordingbridge is a lovely cottage in the heart of the countryside and plenty of open space for our classes as well as a lovely fire in the lounge. All bedrooms are twin, double or king with ensuite bathrooms and guests do not have to share unless they wish to do so.

There is plenty of parking at Mews Hill if you are driving or if you prefer then catch the train out of London Waterloo (journey time approx 1h45 mins) and we will pick you up from the station.

All meals will be prepared by our professional chef, Toby and we focus on wholesome, healthy food. Toby specialises in pastry and desserts and so we are sure there will be some lovely desserts too.

We offer a range of activities over the course of the retreat and we will be outside as much as we can for boxing, HIIT, circuits, trail running and yoga.

We will be heading to the beach on day three for paddle boarding (or beach circuits if you don’t fancy getting on the water) and if the weather is fine there will be yoga on the beach too before a hike along the cliffs at Barton on Sea, taking a break for some delicious cake at the cafe on the cliff top.

Each day is full of activity but we timetable in plenty of relaxation time each afternoon so you can explore the area or just rest and relax at the cottage. Read more.

Day Retreat for Women – connecting to your inner rhythms

This day retreat with Louise Pitman Yoga is for all women, but is particularly beneficial for perimenopausal and women post menopause.

Are you ready to step into your power? The secret lies within. Living in harmony with your inner seasons, inner cycles, can have a profound effect on your health and well being.

For a happy, healthy menopause, Menstrual Cycle Awareness is the key, awakening women to their inner power. Living with the natural flow of your cycle rather than in opposition with it can help ease painful periods, help you learn to manage PMS and create a more fertile environment for which to birth new life or new ideas.

Gaining this awareness is the bedrock for menopause, difficulty managing your menopause can be due to lack of connection to your cycle in your menstruating years. When your periods become less frequent in peri menopause or stop in menopause, living by the moon is the perfect ritual. So whatever stage of life you’re in, woman, this is the day for you.

Exploring the cycle in relation to moon phases, exploring life cycles in relation to the seasons, this retreat day will have two yoga practices designed to support management of peri/menopause symptoms. Read more.

It is one of our favourite times of the year to visit as the crowds are gone and it takes on a slower pace of life. This year is also in half term so for all you teachers this one is also for you!

Our venue in the Lake District is perfectly set up to manage the coronavirus safety measures because it is a hotel / B&B so all rooms are en-suite, the food is all provided by the venue and it is cleaned on a regular basis. The yoga shala is beautiful and we are staggering the yoga classes in two groups but this won’t detract from your retreat experience. It can suit early birds and people who like to sleep a little longer!

With our qualified and very experienced mountain guide Mark on hand to lead the day hike on Friday, and your yoga teacher to lead a more gentle yet equally as stunning walk to Tarn Howes directly from our retreat centre, immerse yourself in nature and feel the benefits of this, being away from the frenetic and urban landscape of your day to day living. Take a packed lunch and just sit and watch the world go by, or enjoy a bit of forest bathing and meditation.

After a day’s excursions, unwind with evening yin and yoga Nidra followed by a vegan and vegetarian feast.

Rested Mama Retreat at Hollwell Holistic Centre

This Rested Mama retreat at Hollwell Holistic Retreat Centre has been curated for Mum’s by a Mum. By a woman who thinks Mum’s are amazing and knows first hand how supportive yoga and meditation is for daily parental life so can’t wait to share these practices to support you.

To incredible caregivers of young children, this retreat is for you. Fulfilling the role of Mother is amazing and challenging in equal measure. Time, space and energy to consistently look after our wellbeing is often lacking. It is so easy to lose our sense of Self in this 24hr role.

You might have a baby who no longer needs Mama for feeds, a toddler, or primary aged children. You give so much to others, so would love time to honour yourself and all this love that you share. This is time for you to share the love inwards. Space and time to nurture your physical, mental and emotional self, to reflect and recharge within a beautiful holistic retreat centre in Devon.

Delving into morning and evening nurturing, mindful and bodyful yoga and meditation practices, let’s move and pause, rest and release, journal and sit, listening to feelings and whisperings of the heart that might not always have the chance to be heard.

Let’s come together and create community within a small group of amazing Mama’s. Chat, laugh and listen, connect and take time alone to stroll and ponder – or even take an uninterrupted nap. Bliss.

With plenty of free time to carve as you wish, stroll the 5 acres of land, nap, read, sip tea, chat, and enjoy a wonderful one hour holistic or deep tissue massage with Imogen (if this is within your booking option – see below). The North Devon coast is also a short drive away.

After dinner, the Sauna Garden awaits, complete with a woodfired sauna plus outdoor ‘plunge’ shower and hot showers to enjoy. Fires, indoor or out, weather allowing, will keep us cosy under the dark starry skies. Read more.

Glamping in Wales

Fforest

Fforest farm has been created as a place to enjoy the simplicity, pleasures and beauty of outdoor living in an outstanding natural environment. Located on 200 acres by the river Teifi gorge, next to the Teifi marshes nature reserve, minutes from the town of Cardigan and from the beautiful undiscovered beaches and coves of the West Wales coast.

The Onsen Domes at fforest farm take year-round comfort and engagement with the outdoors to a new level. With solid wood floors, wood-burning stoves, bespoke furnishings and beautiful countryside views from the giant bay window.

Luxury British Spa Hotels

Dormy House Hotel, Worcestershire

Wind your way down picturesque country lanes, past Cotswold-stone cottages, and eventually you’ll reach the warm welcome of Dormy House Hotel – a cosy converted farmhouse that’s about as British as you can get.

Accommodation options range from roomy suites to the adorable Rose Cottage, complete with private hot tub, and the House Spa is utterly luxurious. As well as an indoor infinity pool, outdoor hydrotherapy hot tub and three thermal suites, the treatments on offer are truly exemplary.

The fitness studio is well kitted out too, but if the weather’s nice it would feel foolish not to take advantage of the glorious Cotswolds setting – ask for a map at reception and take a walk across hilltops dotted with sheep. Afterwards, reward yourself with a meal at one of the restaurants on-site – The Garden Room is particularly special. Read reviews.

Lime Wood Hotel, Hampshire

Just over 90 minutes from London by train, Lime Wood Hotel’s idyllic New Forest setting makes for the most picturesque of countryside retreats, complete with wild ponies and donkeys roaming the entrance.

From opulent but cosy rooms in the main house to secluded cabins and lodges with log fires and private patios, it is almost too tempting to relax in your room for the entire stay.

However, with a spa that features a peaceful rooftop herb garden (where you can take part in morning yoga or meditation should you wish), a hydro-pool, steam room and sauna overlooking the forest and an outdoor hotpool and mud house – not to mention the warmest service, a pretty courtyard bar and a restaurant headed up by Michelin-starred chef Angela Hartnett and co-head Luke Holder – the rest of Lime Wood is well worth your time too. Read reviews.

Calcot Manor, Gloucestershire

The word “Manor” in Calcot Manor is slightly misleading, encouraging visitors to expect a stuffy intimidating house, when nothing could be further from the truth.

Calcot Village would be more appropriate to describe the layout and feel, since the accommodation is made up of 35 quaint cottages, barns and outbuildings, all grouped around the rustic main building.

Thoughtfully preserved on the outside and completely modernised on the inside, the rooms provide exactly what most city visitors want from a country retreat: the appearance of rural living, but with wi-fi.

The spa – one of the main reasons that Calcot is almost always full, even on a rainy midweek day – occupies another of the cluster of farm buildings and boasts an indoor pool, treatment rooms, lounge, and lavender-surrounded outdoor hot tub overlooking an open wood fire.

Treatments focus on complete relaxation using Aromatherapy Associates products – although CACI therapies are also on offer – and the 45-minute Rose Facial is so relaxing it feels twice as long. Time moves more slowly in the Cotswolds – which is just as we like it. Read reviews.

Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa, Wiltshire

After driving down a mile-long driveway lined with beech and lime trees, Lucknam Park is no disappointment when you eventually reach it.

A Palladian mansion just six miles from the beautiful city of Bath, Lucknam boasts 42 individually-styled rooms and suites, 500 acres of land (which you can explore on horseback or by bike, should you wish to), a Michelin-starred restaurant and a spa featuring a 20-metre pool, hydrotherapy pool and five thermal cabins.

Guests can choose from a list of treatments using products from Espa, visit the gym or even book an appointment at the hairdressing salon during their stay.

The setting is idyllic, the hotel and facilities utterly luxurious and the service second to none – a weekend’s stay feels like the ultimate country escape. Read reviews.

The Grove Hotel, Hertfordshire

Tucked away in what feels like the most quaint, quiet English countryside (it is, in fact, only a 40 minute drive out of central London), The Grove Hertfordshire is almost too close to home to be safe from temptation mid-week.

Boasting four different restaurant areas and grounds that are as luscious as its gourmet breakfast (served in bed, naturally, eaten propped up with cloud-like pillows and silky soft linens), it is the Sequoia spa that is the jewel in its crown.

Using Natura Bissé products, their formulas rich in active ingredients, its body treatments are some of the best you’ll experience. A special mention goes to The Orangery Experience.

Who would have thought feeling like a citrus soufflé would be so invigorating? It’s the perfect precursor to a day spent walking around the expansive grounds, culminating in a glass from their excellent wine list. Read reviews.

Cowley Manor, Gloucestershire

With 55 acres of woodland and meadows for guests to enjoy, Cowley Manor is a firm favourite with Cotswolds-frequenters. Its C-Side Spa makes it an even more enticing proposition, especially given the new menu of Emergin C Scientific Organics.

These are treatments that utilise the latest in skincare technology to provide hard-hitting, results-driven facials.

High points are the Anti-Ageing Apple Stem Cell Treatment (100 per cent of clients noticed improvement in the appearance of crow’s feet), and the Detox Facial, which uses a range of potent super-ingredients such as kombucha, seaweed, French clay and grape extract. Read reviews.

The Scarlet, Cornwall

You can indulge in all kinds of relaxing diversions here at the Scarlet – including cliff-top hot tubs, a natural reed-bed swimming pool and an Ayurvedic inspired spa. The hotel has been designed so that almost wherever you are, you can enjoy far-reaching views of the beach and sea beyond. A balance of light, airy spaces with cosy, private areas which allow you to mix with our other guests or enjoy peace and solitude.

The stunningly appointed bedrooms and suites feature free standing baths, walk-in showers, sea views, private gardens, terraces or private rooftop sitting rooms.

The Scarlet offers you serenity, a chance to escape from life’s fast pace, slow down and truly enjoy nature, great food and a warm welcome. With its luxury tented treatment rooms lit by lanterns and its far-reaching views over Mawgan Porth Beach to the wild Atlantic beyond, the Scarlet Spa is essentially a quiet, contemplative, almost spiritual place.

The focus of their spa is on your holistic wellbeing and the nourishment of your mind, body and soul, drawing on the wisdom of Ayurveda and a distinctive Cornish twist. You might want to slather yourself in rich mineral mud in our rhassoul, experience a traditional bathing ritual in the hammam, or try your hand at massage guided by one of our therapists. Outside, a cliff top hot tub invites you to stargaze or storm watch, and the natural chemical-free pool, cleaned by reeds, beckons you into the water. Read reviews.

Polurrian on the Lizard Hotel, Cornwall

Take a breath, feel the sea breeze and make the Cornish coast your playground. From early morning slow yoga to seal-spotting adventures, we’ll inspire a fresh view of life. Here, you can savour the simple things: share some tapas, stroll down to the sand or sip drinks with a view. This is a coastal hotel with a very different outlook.

Whenever you are ready, we will be here to welcome you to our spectacular Cornish retreat, with the magnificent coastline to explore, delicious local food, tasty new cocktails and plenty of time to enjoy a long-awaited change of scenery. The beach will be waiting for you.

Our relaxation room is where you’ll discover the meaning of chilled out. Enjoy the perfect space to rest before and after a treatment or simply unwind to soothing sounds in a tranquil atmosphere. If the weather is sunny, grab a lounger on the decking outside or around the pool and feel the sea breeze on your face.

In our treatment rooms, you can indulge in a pampering Elemis treatment and some well-deserved me-time. Soothe away stresses with an age-defying facial, unwind with a deep tissue massage or be rejuvenated with a lime and ginger salt scrub. Read reviews.

Watergate Bay Hotel

Set on a spectacular, two mile surfing beach on the North Cornwall coast, Watergate Bay Hotel is the perfect destination for a wellness break directly on the beach. You can partake in the following activities:

Swim Club – our take on a spa – where outdoors meets indoors and beach meets hotel. This is our space for active relaxation. Swim in our 25-metre infinity pool, build strength and flexibility in a yoga class, or take time out for a treatment.

Work hard in a cardio cycle class or find focus and strength with yoga or pilates. If you’re craving an impromptu training session, our cardio room is filled with top of the range gym equipment.

Hatha yoga – Led by experienced teachers, this reflective yoga style encourages the release of tight muscles, energising the whole body. Classes include breath work (pranayama), posture (asana) and mindfulness (dharana). Build strength and increase your flexibility.
