"Wonderful escape "

My mum and I booked on to the retreat as a treat for us both to escape our busy lives and to spend some quality time together. We had both in abundance and were so impressed by the wonderful accommodation, food, yoga and group of people. It would have been very difficult not to switch off and the combination of yoga, thai massage and meditation struck a really good chord for us. Recommend paying extra for a private room - the bunks are in the hallway so pretty exposed and the hayloft would only really work for a group of 4.

"Welcoming retreat"

I really liked the fact that Nova was so welcoming, she made everyone feel at home. Food was abundant, fresh and tasty. The yoga classes were fun and catered to everyone's level.

I just had a really relaxing time, was able to sit on my own and read, but there was also opportunity to chat with people in communal spaces.

"Awesome Experience "

The location was beautiful, set on a tranquil farm where we could collect our own eggs and veg! Nova was super friendly and so knowledgable, she made us all so welcome and made it feel like home. The yoga was varied and even though I’ve practiced for years, found new poses and new techniques which Nova guided us through seamlessly. We also did plenty of meditation, my favourite was the candle lit one at night, just beautiful. We even managed a trip to the coast and were treated to freshly made pancakes by the sea! Nova went over and above all expectations to make us welcome and all our group discussions were fascinating, hilarious, deep and out there in equal measures. Will definitely be booking with Nova again, we all felt we didn’t want to leave! Thank you Nova. Xx

"Not enough meditation "

Yoga too challenging. Groups booked together in advance and were cliquey and bullying. There was pretty much no meditation and nova went with what the nasty girls wanted to do, ignoring the 4 or 5 of us who didn't want acro yoga, we wanted relaxation techniques or a guided nidra..... But nova said that takes too long.....a nidra or meditation can take any amount of time you want.

"Peace and transquility"

I booked this yoga retreat on a whim for a birthday treat for myself. I do some yoga but I'm certainly not an expert so as the time got nearer I got a little anxious that everyone else would be fully fledged yogis. But not the case we varied in our abilities and everyone was so lovely and encouraging. Nova excelled herself she made the whole experience fun and was quickly able to know exactly what everyone could do.

Nova is an excellent teacher and pushed me gently to my limits which felt wonderful.

There is plenty of time to relax I chose to go off and explore the beautiful new forest. I had a fantastic massage and there was plenty of time to read and chill out in the evening. I sat by the fire on Saturday evening half listening to a few fellow retreaters sitting chatting after dinner; you do what you want when you want without anyone judging you.

Nova cooks all the food helped by anyone who likes cooking was all delicious and you can help yourself to drinks and snacks throughout the day.

Would highly recommend this retreat. It was lovely meeting other people from all walks of life.

"A truly amazing experience "

The whole experience, Nova is a very chilled and loving person, who made me and every one else very welcome from the second we arrived. I am new to yoga and this was my first retreat but what an excellent experience. Don't know words to explain how I feel today. Also nova arranged a massue for the weekend Caileigh which is a separate cost but well well well worth it for a small young lady she had the strength of a gorilla and really got stuck in for the hour, iam a big bloke carrying a bit of weight but felt like a million dollars after. I have not been able to been able to get any way near how great the whole experience was, l just really recommend it 🙏

"Yoga retreat with Nova "

A friend and I booked this retreat 3 months beforehand and were so looking forward to it ..... and it didn't disappoint at all. Some people arrived on their own or with friends but Nova made sure that the group integrated well from the start. She cooked all the food and it was really delicious. There was a good mix of relaxation, meditation and yoga. Nova had arranged for 2 masseuses on Saturday afternoon who were amazing. A fabulous, brilliant weekend and we are definitely going to go again. I cannot recommend Nova highly enough.

"Wonderful Feel Good Retreat"

I booked this retreat as my birthday getaway weekend treat and I was delighted with it.

Swapping the hustle and bustle of daily life for a few days of relaxation, massages, nature, wildlife, yoga and meditation was really worth it.

The Eco Farm Lodge is really stunning. Beautifully decorated - a mix of modern & rustic. The beds were comfortable and I had to admit it was fun sharing a dorm - brought me back to my youth.

It was so nice to be able to go and get your eggs in the morning for breakfast, to feed the pigs, say hello to the horses and play with the goat and its babies.

The group I was with was a pure delight. Everyone was so friendly, open and kind. They all made my birthday day quite special. Lots of conversations, laughter, sharing experiences and giggles.

Being a Yoga and Meditation novice, I was a little apprehensive that I would not be able to follow the classes but on the contrary, I was made to feel welcome and not judged at all. I let all my pre-conceived ideas go and just let myself follow the flow of the classes.

Nova is a really good teacher - kind, fun, welcoming...a little wild and quirky too which make it even more interesting.

I was touched that she made me a birthday cake and cupcakes which was a very sweet thought and greatly enjoyed by the group.

All in all a wonderful weekend - great food, great group, great location, great yoga and mediation.

Thank you Nova!

"Lovely weekend break "

The farm and accommodation were great. Beautifully kept and presented and the family that own the farm were also really friendly and hospitable. We got to see some new born lambs and the farmer was happy to answer questions and explain things. Nova was a great instructor and hostess, very relaxed and chilled. She was able to adapt any yoga to suit my being 33 weeks pregnant. I am also coeliac and she catered for a gluten free diet well.

"A perfect getaway"

The surroundings, accommodation and food, the yoga and meditation, the teacher, the atmosphere, and the other guests were all I hoped for and more. A great way to switch off from my busy city life. Thanks

Delicious food. Very comfortable beds. Yin classes were really good apart from the room for yoga was far too cold.
