Sleep under the stars

On our yoga retreat Cornwall you can stay in gorgeous Mongolian-style yurts. They’re the ultimate in luxury camping and offer a unique back to nature experience. The wood-burning stove in the yurts will keep you warm on cooler evenings. Solar powered fairy lights add to the magical atmosphere.  Each yurt has its own fire pit. We’ll be cooking on an open fire and relaxing around it to enjoy the bright stars at night. What a wonderful adventure! 

The yurt’s contain a double bed and single futons as well as flowers from the garden, beautiful bed spreads and colourful rugs. The bathrooms are a short stroll away. 

In the converted barn space along with our yoga studio are two light and lovely rooms.  The master bedroom has it’s own ensuite and can be made up as a super king size bed or a twin room. There’s also a simple twin room with a bathroom just across the hall 2 metres away. These can be shared between 2 or booked privately.


Taking the time for myself in such a beautiful, natural and welcoming environment has done wonders, I felt calmer and more at peace than ever. Jen really does put her heart and soul into planning the weekends perfectly, the sessions were wonderfully varied and tailored to the time of day and length of the weekend. Her cooking is really impressive, everything was dairy & gluten free and still managed to be delicious and super satisfying, my skin and digestion are still reaping the benefits and I'll definitely be trying some of the recipes at home! Overall, Jen is a wonderful instructor, she is patient, encouraging, has a lovely soothing voice and encourages a bit of a sense of humour! I had a fab, fab time and will seek her out for another retreat in the future.
