Embrace springtime awakenings and new beginnings!
A revitalising and soul-nourishing retreat in the stunning South Hams, at Higher Combe Retreat, South Pool
This rejuvenating yoga and meditation retreat focuses on re-connections; the re-kindling of life and personal aspirations. Emerge from the depths of winter withdrawal and inner reflection by re-awakening your mind, body and spirit on this nourishing 4-day retreat.
Embrace the energy of spring-time and step forth into the coming year with renewed vigour, through yoga postures, meditative practices, vibrational medicine and guided coaching exercises.
Setting the scene
Spring is a time of renewal, rebirth and re-awakening. This gentle, nurturing retreat set in the heart of the beautiful South Hams, will encourage you to relax and unwind from those long winter blues; re-vitalise your physical body and tap into your inner source of joy and wisdom.
Notice how the daily yoga and meditation practice revives your senses, listen to the call of the creative forces stirring within, and feel yourself coming alive once more, as we enter into Spring - a rebirth of inspiration and the return of the light.
Higher Combe is nestled in a gentle, rolling valley along a sleepy Devon lane and sits within its 22 acres of privately-owned land. It boasts a stunning, purpose-built yoga and meditation studio, a light and airy space with lovely views across the neighbouring valley. The studio faces east to take advantage of the beautiful sunrise.
Higher Combe Retreat's magnificent flower beds and herb gardens, private orchard and woodland area invite quiet, mindful contemplation; whilst its two adjoining fields offer brisk, refreshing walks with gorgeous views across both the Salcombe and Kingsbridge/Frogmore estuaries.
A short 10 minute walk down the lane takes you into the charming village of South Pool with its picturesque creek and popular local pub, The Millbrook Inn.

Wholesome food & healthy juices
We will provide our residential guests with breakfast, lunch and dinner for the duration of this retreat; usually served buffet style. We serve
deliciously wholesome, freshly-prepared vegetarian or vegan food.
Fresh fruit and healthy snacks, hot beverages and pure spring water, from Higher Combe's very own well, will be freely available to all.
As part of our 'karma yoga' philosophy, guests may be asked to assist with the preparation of evening meals each night, on a rota basis.
The ethos of our retreats is one of collaboration and mutual support. We, therefore, kindly request that guests help tidy up the kitchen and the communal areas after each mealtime.
If you have any dietary requirements please let us know at the time of booking, so that we can accommodate your personal preferences.
Your accommodation for the retreat is based on twin, double (and one single) accommodation, with shared bathroom facilities. Two of the bedrooms are located within a separate cottage in the grounds.
If you are travelling with friends, please let us know at the time of booking, so that you can stay together if this is your preference. Otherwise, you will be paired with a retreat participant of the same gender in a shared room.
The cottage is also home to two friendly resident cats, Bob and Mollie. If you have an allergy to cat fur and therefore require a pet-free
environment please let us know at the time of making your booking.
There is a large, comfortable lounge for guests to relax in during breaks and a large, communal kitchen.
The dining room is located in a bright, sunny conservatory, which also has a piano available for musically-inspired guests to play if they wish.
If you prefer to stay elsewhere, or if all available rooms at Higher Combe Retreat have been taken when you make your booking, Glebe Farm B&B is just 10 minutes walk away in the village. Alternative
