Immerse yourself into the nurturing nature of the Cornish spring during a four-day retreat that will inspire you to nourish your body and soul. Guided on foraging adventures you will connect to the tranquil and abundant land and seascape of Cornwall, learning of the many gifts that the land has to offer followed by high-end culinary workshops and sumptuous dining . Turn your foraging treasures into soulful culinary creations and exfoliating scrubs that can be used to keep your skin feeling fresh and youthful. Move your body with flow yoga in our beachfront studio and brave the invigorating wild swims. Leave with a deep appreciation for all that nature has to offer and ways in which it can heal.
Treglossick Farm is a magical place, steeped in an atmosphere of ancient Druidic healing. The centuries-old converted farmhouse is set in a verdant garden filled with tropical foliage and host, Fleur’s foraged goods, as well as a happy flock of mix-breed hens (that supply daily breakfast eggs). Experience the rugged coastline of the Lizard peninsula AONB, a stone beach for wild swimming a quick walk away. Rooms are cosy, welcoming and offer line-dried pure linen and true comfort. There are plenty of sunny nooks or quiet corners to take time for quiet reflection, book reading, or a sneaky forty winks!
