A Tranquil Paradise
A farm abandoned for 15 years, covered in undergrowth, smelling of heather and earth, full of mysterious sounds and wonderful light
Go with the flow.
Following the instincts of mother nature, the team modestly accepted their secondary role and shaped this beautifully tranquil bed and breakfast with care and respect.
There's a boat waiting for you, a duck house, fish and tortoises. Swim, paddle, lounge...and enjoy the smells and sounds. Here you'll find the most comfortable hanging chairs where you can sit, relax and watch baby ducks follow their family, swallows come to bathe and butterflies add to that magic feeling.
All of our yoga sessions are Gillian's signature blend of Hatha, Katonah Yoga®, Dao wisdom, gentle humour and involve either flowing or holding poses.
We start the day with a short meditation, move into a mindful slow flow to get you supple, maybe a little sweaty, and finish with a relaxation or visualization. At the end of the day we meet to do a little CHILL yoga, which usually involves hanging out in poses that restore and relax you, as well as tease your fascia into letting go of old habits.
Please note: you will be required to bring your own yoga mat.
