OUR GUEST PERFORMER THIS YEAR  Circus fun with your feet firmly on the ground

Tucked into the foothills of snowdonia, overlooking the beach you can discover amazing peace, quiet and enchantment.

The overwhelmingly impressive thing about this venue is the absolute silence, broken only by the hourly chiming of a clock, the breeze rustling through the trees or the lapping of the sea .

Mainly single room accommodation the old house is quaint and cosy, the extensive grounds are a rustic thrill with a suprise around every corner.

P1010507 Early morning meditation around the fountain (everything is optional)  

Going for a walk in the grounds means meandering up hills and down again and probably losing your way along the way.  Memories of yesteryear around every corner retained.

 Climb up to the top of the hill for wonderful views of the beach and the amazing Welsh coastline.  Walk down to the quiet and expansive beach and experience the purifying health benefits of the ozone as we practice yoga  on the beach.

The grounds are packed with inviting corners to quietly meditate including two labyrinths and a fountain.  Our early morning meditations round the fountain have become a must do for some whilst others prefer a lie in before breakfast


What better place to practice yoga than in the peaceful stone walled chapel if weather prevents  the beach or the lawns (though it can be quite pleasant in light rain).


Amazingly these tranquil weekends away with nothing to do except relax and indulge can really  revitalise and refresh your raison d'etre, feeling more like a week away than a weekend.

Home cooked vegetarian food is served throughout the weekend*.

The privacy of single accommodation is available to all with a small number of twin or double rooms for friends/couples to share.

 beach yoga

Singing and mantra is just part of the weekend

Juggling with scarfs and balls
Balancing objects
Spinning plate
Flower stick
Learning circus skills brings a real sense of achievement. The cross body movement and using both sides of the brain have been shown to improve neural pathways and improve cordination. It's a whole body work out which includes lots of eye and head movements which really taps into the vagus nerve. It's very difficult not to be present when you're doing any of the skills, so for me its definitely a moving meditation. I'm a person who likes to be active and creative and circus skills has given me that freedom. I love sharing my passion for circus skills with everyone.

Kaths story of personal awakeening from learning circus skills

I was in my early 20s when I first tried circus skills, I went to an evening class run by Skylight Circus Arts in Rochdale. I'd just been made redundant and I felt that part of my identity had been lost; my confidence and self esteem had really taken a knock.

I learnt to juggle really quickly, the seemingly complex pattern was skillfully broken down into its simple parts. Next I tried the tight rope, unicycle and stilts, followed by spinning plate, club swinging and many more skills. It instantly felt good and my motivation and general well being improved.
I completed 18 months training with them and continued to work with them for the next 20 years; I still work as a freelance teacher for them and anyone else who'll have me. I have taught 1000s of people from all walks of life and performed all over the country.
