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.

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 that the recent renovations to the ground has not detracted from.

  

Climb up to the top of the hill for wonderful views of the beach and the amazing Welsh coastline.  In fact, walk down to the quiet and expansive beach and experiece the purifying health benefits of the ozone as you practice yoga  on the beach.

The grounds are packed with inviting corners to quietly meditate including two labyrinths and a fountain.

What better place to practice yoga than in the peaceful stone walled chapel if it's just not going to work on the beach or the lawns.

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

Home cooked healthy and nutritious 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 to share.

One of the very best thinngs for us about the retreats is that we have people who we see fleetingly each week for a yoga class and some who come to other activities too or even people that we have never met or who we only see on the retreats each year.  We find that it is a time to get to know these people in more depth and when people begin to relax over the weekend their different side begins to come out and we really get to know them well.

We havve people who have been coming to yoga classes for years but on retreat we find a different more relaxed side to them and it really is very fulfilling to experience this.

 Each years we have a slightly different set of experiences so here's last years activities just to give you an idea.

 

We were very fortunate that the weather was fantastic most of the time and we were able to have a yoga session on the beach and an optional swim in the sea followed by coffee/ice cream in the beach cafe which for me I think was the hghlight of the weekend.

A close runner up were the sessions of yoga on the lawns under the shade of the old trees.

Whereever possible we were outdoors and the only indoor activities were the evening yoga sessions and the individual hypnotherapy sessions.  It was great to relax to the yoga and then be able to go straight to bed.

The labyrinth mediation walk was wonderful on the grass labyrinth with bear feet and the pebbly one was a good additional one to try and smell the bountiful herbs on the way around..  I kept seeing people rturning to the labyrinth alone to work   some of their aims over the weekend which was good.

We made use of the marque in the garrden on two evenings.  One when we had a professional magic performance and the other was a sing along (and dance it turns out).

Each morning before breakfast there was the option to meditate around the fountain in the grounds, others chose to wander the grunds and explore, others had a lie in.

We also had a Qi gong session on one of the lawns which was interesting and a contrast to the yoga

We had a spnataneous yoga laughter workshop by popular demand again on the lawns.

Inidividual hypnotherapy sessions and colour/flower reading out doors.

A walk into the village for forgotten essentials and treats.

Linz who was offering really reasonably priced therapies sold out and was working untill 10pm some evening.  People were gong back for seconds!  we saw so little of her we began to suspect she had sneaked home.

Last year we had a didgeridoo demonstration as evening entertainment.

Not sure what it will be next year.
