Meals Included:

Home from home

Your home for the weekend is a beautifully-appointed canvas bell tent set amongst the lush hills of North Wales. Each tent has comfortable beds, complete with luxurious bedding and blankets to keep you cosy at night. With the log burner lit, nowhere has a greater sense of hygge.

– hot showers to get you set for the day ahead

– communal cabin for yoga practice and group experiences



Campfire stories

After a delicious wholesome evening meal together, local storyteller Fiona Collins will welcome you to Wales with mythical tales around the campfire. From fiery dragons to Tylwyth Teg, our mischievous fairy folk, Wales is a country rich in folklore.

icon Day 2 : Saturday

Location:

  Corwen


Accommodation:

  Camp, Luxury Bell Tents


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Wholesome & soulful

Breakfast is a simple and social affair of cereals and fresh fruits served in the cabin.

Once breakfast has settled, Poppy Backshall will be your instructor for your first yoga session. Focusing on creating a sense of mindfulness, her gentle meditative flow is the perfect way to begin your day with a sense of calm. Learning the art of Pranayama breath control in yoga provides an invaluable tool to take away from your wellness retreat, empowering you to maintain that sense of calm in other areas of your daily life.

The purpose of your wild wellness retreat is to allow you to create time and space for yourself. So after yoga, enjoy time to yourself before rejoining the group for a delicious lunch.



A natural balance

After lunch we’ll take you to the nearby picturesque town of Llangollen. Here you’ll experience the zen art of stand up paddleboarding (SUP) in the tranquil setting of Llangollen’s waterways. Surrounded by nature, use your new yoga balance and breathing techniques to help you maintain the perfect position and paddle effortlessly. The simple art of balance is a powerful act of mindfulness, empowering you to close out all distractions and truly focus your mind.



All fired up

Back at your hillside retreat take time to relax. Perhaps explore the wildlife areas on-site or simply kick back with a good book, before enjoying delicious rustic pizzas from the wood-fired pizza oven.

After dinner we’ll take a night time stroll, appreciating the dark stillness of the night and the ethereal beauty of the stars above. Learn how to identify the constellations and understand more about the phases of the moon.

icon Day 3 : Sunday

Location:

  Corwen


Accommodation:

  Camp, Luxury Bell Tents


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Nature’s bounty

Breakfast will be served in the cabin as usual before setting out on a gentle walk around the retreat site with your foraging guide, Sheena Corrie.

Sheena runs the site with her husband Jamie, and together they know every inch of its 20 acres. With their expert guidance, learn which of nature’s wild plants are edible and how you can enjoy their delicious taste and health benefits.

As the seasons change, so do plants. So what may produce a great flower in spring, can go on to bear delicious fruits in autumn. Others have tangy leaves in the summer, perfect for a wild salad or a soothing herbal tea, while their roots impart delicious flavours in the winter months.

Understand the delicate balance of nature’s own larder and you’ll feel so much more connected to the Earth. Once you’ve learned to forage, every walk becomes a mindful act and a wonderful meditation in its own way as you study your surroundings for a seasonal taste.

Gathering up your harvest, together we’ll prepare something delicious that you can take away as a delicious memory of your Wild Wellness Retreat. Perhaps a wild herb vinegar or a Gorse flower cordial, depending on what you forage.



And breathe…

Enjoy a tasty lunch before your second yoga class of the retreat with Poppy Backshall. Continuing to work on mindfulness, meditation and breath, you’ll learn the tools to continue your practice long after your wellness retreat is over.

As you know by now, time for yourself is as important as your shared group experiences. So take a break for a few hours to enjoy your natural surroundings.



The wild kitchen

Dinner this evening will be a hands-on event! Head to the kitchen garden to select your fresh seasonal vegetables and ask the resident hens nicely if you can take an egg or two. A range of other local ingredients will be provided so you’ll have plenty to work with. Gather back around the campfire to prepare a group meal together. It’s a simple pleasure, yet one that’s been all but lost from our 21st century lives. Chop, chat, simmer and smile as you work together to create something special. A celebration of nature. A celebration of friends.



Marshmallows & chocolate

With a full stomach and a full heart, kick back around the fire. Toast marshmallows and sip hot chocolate as you bask in this wonderful outdoor life you’ve become one with. We encourage you to look back on your weekend and contemplate together how you’ll take away the things you’ve learned.

This is more than a weekend retreat, this is a toolkit for a more mindful life. One where your mind, body and soul are harmonised with nature. Your life, rewilded.

Meals Included:

A new beginning

Take your final morning at your leisure. Enjoy breakfast together in the cabin and spend a little time relaxing in the wilds of Wales one final time. Expect the retreat to wrap up around 12:00.

    How many other people will be in my group?

    Typically our groups are between 8 and 15 people. Of course when we’re dealing with specific activities such as mountain biking or hiking, we always work within the recognised guiding ratios. So for example, our mountain bike adventures will never exceed 8 guests in total.

    Are you adventures suitable for children?

    Our adventure packages are all aimed at adults aged 18 years or over. This is partly because many activities have height or age restrictions and we found that trying to factor this in when crafting our experiences, limited what we could include. Our aim is to deliver the best of the best in each region, so we weren’t comfortable with compromising the activities we could offer.

Just brilliant.

The whole team were lovely and felt like part of the group.

Everything was relaxed and well organised, and we had just enough spare time to go off for a cheeky dip in the river.

I honestly could have stayed there for twice as long…! less....

The whole trip was brilliantly organised with just enough downtime.

Clare and Sarah were helpful and attentive.

The food was outstanding!! I never went hungry and enjoyed every last morsel! The paddleboarding team were supportive and worked with all our abilities.

Picking blackberries as we went along the canal, YUM!! The story telling took us on an evening adventure with giants and dragons with the most delicious marshmallows! The yoga was challenging and relaxing.

The foraging was my favourite experience.

I found it fascinating.

The plum sauce we may was delicious.

I highly recommend this break!! I was conscious of the cost, but it was worth every penny!!! less....

I've just returned from the Wild Wellness Retreat in North Wales, and it was absolutely brilliant from start to finish! The trip had the perfect mix of activities, with some time to chill out in between.

We did yoga, paddleboarding and got to learn how to forage our own food to cook dinner over the fire on the last night.

It was the perfect post lock down trip to rekindle my love for travelling and have come back feeling refreshed and re-energised.

Claire and Jim are evidently passionate about sustainability which is fantastic, and they are so friendly.

We even got photos taken throughout, so you could completely switch off and forget about your phone.

I will definitely be back!! less....
