This unique trip is designed by new parents for new parents. The vibrant and healing weekend experience includes Hatha yoga and meditation sessions on the cliffs of North Cornwall. It also offers cliff walks with an introduction to seaside foraging, a special rockpool photography workshop, optional surfing and delicious Sri-Lankan and Hawaiian-inspired cuisine. This is for those that love yoga, the ocean and exploration – both without and within.

Accommodation

Caters for vegetarian diets
Rustic seaside venue
Inviting communal areas 
Spacious rooms
Light and airy yoga and meditation space
The house is a homely venue with large, bright and spacious rooms, an open-plan kitchen, and dedicated yoga and meditation space in an old coach house in the garden where you will feel at ease, at peace and sleep very well after lots of fresh air, soul work, and exercise! It is located on the cliffs of New Polzeath on the Cornish coastal path, an area managed by the National Trust and is one of only five Marine Protected Areas in Cornwall. This area is known for its beautiful scenery – from Rock, Padstow and Daymer Bay to the Camel Estuary and rocky islets of Newland and The Mouls. The majestic cliffs, and long sandy beaches are directly outside. It is located between a large surfing beach with an expansive tidal range, great for foraging, and a smaller, hidden beach next to a multitude of fascinating rock pools.
