“I am still glowing! This week was far beyond expectations. The house and its stunning views, the food, the yoga, the walks , the company and being in nature. The ‘Snuggledown Norway’ duvet, falling asleep watching the nightsky through my skylight, the hot shower with loads of pressure…The views over the beautiful  beach, the healthy and ohhhh so tasty food, the mindblowing coastal path walks, all the joy and the laughter and all the inspiring yoga hours……..I can go on and on and on…….”

“Being on the retreat has been an amazing and unique experience – relaxing, energizing and inspiring at the same time. The combination of yoga and walking, sensational sea views and gorgeous vegan food  has made this the perfect getaway for a week. Jen is a great host and we stayed in a beautifully located beach house overlooking the cliffs.”

Wake up slowly to the sound of the ocean, put the kettle on and take in the awesome ocean view.

Unroll your yoga mat for a feel-good vinyasa flow yoga class with ocean views. Expect creative, fun and flowing sequences to fill you with energy for the day ahead.

Time for a beautiful breakfast! Sit around our breakfast bar and tuck in to bircher muesli, fruit and coconut yoghurt, homemade banana bread or avocado toast whilst you chat about your exciting plans for the day.

Throw on your back pack and fill up your water bottle – it’s time to go! Walk straight out of the beach house and on to the coastal path for a 6 mile walk, past beautiful beaches, wildflowers, through idyllic villages and over fields. Pause to take pictures of the incredible views and breathe in the fresh sea air.

We’ll stop for lunch at a gorgeous cafe, tea room, pub or restaurant enroute, or we’ll sit on the cliff top and eat our packed lunches whilst watching the waves and looking out for dolphins.

Free time to relax at our beautiful beach house or explore the local area. Stay in and curl up on the sofa with a sea-view, read on the terrace, soak in a hot bath or have a massage. Still feeling active? Head to the beach, take a refreshing dip in the sea, wander around town or go for a surf!

Stretch out and unwind after your walk with a slow and soothing yin and restorative yoga class. You’ll rest in rejuvenating poses that will help you to feel calm and relaxed. You’ll release tension and tightness in your body, let go of stress and enjoy slowing down and taking time for yourself.

Take a seat at our beautiful dining table for a vegetarian feast. Share delicious dishes like Sri Lankan curry, chocolate bean chilli with guacamole or spring salads of new potato, asparagus and peas with wild garlic pesto. Chat about all the fun things you’ve done today and what you’re excited about for tomorrow. Then enjoy your favourite herbal tea with a sweet treat like a raw brownie or slice of vegan ‘cheesecake’.

Before you fall in to a deep sleep in your super comfortable bed, step outside, look up and be astounded by the incredible starry night sky above you.


Nestled between Padstow and Newquay, on the coastal path and minutes from the beach, our retreat home is perfectly located to experience some of Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches and picturesque towns.

On our walks we’ll explore the Atlantic coast and take in some of Cornwall’s most spectacular views. Highlights include Watergate Bay, Porthcothan, Holywell Bay, Fistral Beach and many more incredible areas.

Just a short walk away from our retreat home are the amazing Bedruthan Steps, an area which holds Dark Sky Status, making it a perfect stargazing spot. And there are 2 incredible hotel spas within easy walking distance if you’d like to book a spa day!

“I have now been on two of Jen’s retreats and I would say that somehow they always seem to ‘re-set’ me.  There is something really special about taking time out from day to day life to practice yoga, eat beautiful wholesome food and take time to rest and reflect. Staying so close to such a beautiful beach was a real joy for me; I loved waking up to the sound of the sea and  with the coastal path just minutes from the house, the location was perfect for our wonderful walks.  Jen is a fabulous yoga teacher and host and I am already thinking about planning my next retreat :)”

A note from Jen –

“This is so exciting for me! I can’t wait to share a week filled with yoga, and walking, and beautiful food with you. I find hiking the Cornish coastline so energising and revitalising – all that fresh sea air, the exercise, the chance to switch off from technology, to be outside and beside the ocean, it’s unbeatable! 

The beauty of Cornwall totally inspires and astounds me..the wildflowers, the birds, the jagged cliffs and the vast stretches of glistening white sand beside a vast ocean, there’s just so much to appreciate and enjoy. I’m thrilled to be able to share my favourite hikes and their unbelievable views, with you, as well as some of my favourite cafes, restaurants and local produce. I know you’re going to love it all too!
