Early May Bank Holiday Yoga Wellness Retreat Norfolk
Norfolk, 3rd - 6th May Bank Holiday 2024
Join us this May bank holiday for a long weekend of wellness and yoga in Norfolk at our stunning eco-retreat centre. Enjoy beautifully landscaped gardens, a Japanese garden and a swimming lake.
Early May is the perfect time to enjoy our wellness yoga retreat in Norfolk. The sun and warmth of spring have arrived and have given the grounds of this stunning venue time to flourish so that it radiates colours of lush green, sparkling blue from the lake, and reds, oranges and purples of the wildflowers throughout.
We love it here and have been running our yoga retreats here for 15 years! As an eco-retreat centre, everything has been built with sustainability at the heart of everything they do. There is a swimming lake where you can row boats, a newly developed meandering garden with paths, a Japanese garden and fire pits to stargaze in the evenings. There is also a heated outdoor pool. Find a connection to nature in the expansive grounds and find a connection with new people, and reconnect to you.
It is a magical retreat centre that has grown over the years with the environment and human connection at the centre of what they do. It’s not just a retreat venue, it’s a whole well-being experience.
Enjoy a guided walk to Castle Acre and the next day take a day trip to Holkham beach if you came by car.
