The accommodation, studio, and eating areas are situated close together around a well maintained garden next to gentle meadows offering stunning, panoramic views, allowing you space between activities and room to wander and reflect. There are two recently renovated log cabins in the woodland area, which offer warm, comfortable, and spacious single-gender accommodation.

Both log cabins are equipped with toilets, showers, and washing areas as well as hot drink making facilities. There are good quality, sturdy single beds, duvets, pillows, linen, and towels provided. Apart from the sensitively managed estate in which guests are free to wander and explore, there are also a private hard surface tennis court and open air pool that you are welcome to use when the weather is feeling kind.

With its open fire, high ceiling, and refreshing artworks, The Stables, a beautifully converted 1930s stable and adjoining property, provides a warm and practical area for eating, chatting, and relaxing. The ground level has an open-plan, well equipped, kitchen, and dining room with under-floor heating. Immediately outside, there is a large, decked, seated eating area which is wonderful on this summer retreat for informal meals and gatherings.

Set a little away from the other buildings, in the corner of a meadow and edged by a hedgerow, The Old Cowshed is a wonderful large, light studio space purposefully restored to make it ideal for lessons and practice. It has a singular ambience; a sense of calm and quiet beauty that encourages study, self-development, and contemplation.

Yoga class

The classes are mixed ability. Chillout Retreats has expert yogis who will be teaching you a combination of Dynamic, Vinyasa flow, and Hatha yoga that work on strengthening the core, increasing flexibility, and strength. Hatha yoga is strong, powerful, and rejuvenating, and covers many of the well known and popular asanas. You will be strengthened, challenged and invigorated during the morning classes.

The evening classes are slower, intuitive, restorative, and calming. Partner work is incorporated to develop some fun, togetherness, and you can expect to work with fluidity, smoothly, and develop a deep sense of body awareness in all of the classes. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced level options will be given during the classes to ensure that everyone is included, capable, and challenged.

Walking

When you walk, you release any tension that you are carrying around in your day to day lives. You can reach places that you can only see on foot and experience some of the most breathtaking places on earth.

On this retreat, Chillout Retreats offers a guided walk during the weekend. The terrain is often hilly, coastal, rugged, and certainly windy at times. They range from mildly to intermediately challenging.

Meditation

By quieting the chattering mind and developing loving kindness, you can really be open to experience what is going on in the present. How much time do you spend thinking about the past or the future without actually living and breathing each precious moment now? After all, you cannot change the past nor predict the future but you can shape your present.

Meditation is now well regarded as a life skill. As you use yoga or Pilates to strengthen and exercise your body, you can use meditation to strengthen and gain control of your brain and mind. After all, it too is a muscle. It is a tool that can help aid concentration, sharpen the senses, and inspire minds. The beauty in even the smallest thing can be appreciated after only a few meditation sessions.

During this chill out retreat, you will learn different meditation techniques and practices that can be used every day, such as the mindfulness of breathing, the Metta Bhavana, and walking meditations. Once you have learnt how to calm the mind, you can meditate anywhere, in the bath, on the tube, or whilst out walking. Even the most active minds need a rest and without too much effort, so much can be achieved.

    Perfect weekend and intro to Yoga

    CONS Contra's: the head waitress in the Champneys restaurant was abrupt and rude -

    PROS Pro's: The location was stunning....The classes were equally good for my novice husband and also myself - even though we have different yoga experience. The instructors were knowledgeable and welcoming. I feel serene and happy and about 5 years younger ! Highly recommended - we aim to come again!

    "Chill out Retreats exceeded my expectation. The group was very inclusive irrespective of yoga level. The venue at Champneys was great but by far the most outstanding aspect of the weekend was Natalie. Her style and balance between yoga, personal lifestyle and way of being was very encouraging and uplifting. Great weekend , when I arrived on Friday night I was very stressed out and by Saturday morning the tension had just gone."

  • Beoordeling van Sophie Middleton

    "I did enjoy the retreat thank you. I found it very relaxing, and the people I met were lovely. However, I have a few comments that I’d like to make that I hope will help to improve things for future retreats:"

    "1) I was a bit disgruntled to find out (after I had eaten it!) that there was barley in the Saturday night meal. I am gluten intolerant and had filled out a form saying so two weeks before the retreat. I would have expected there to be a gluten free alternative at every meal or at least made clear that it contained gluten before I ate it. As it turned out, I was totally fine afterwards so it was no big deal for me, but might have been for others."

    "2) the yoga was quite slow and repetitive. We did a very similar and slow paced class for all four yoga sessions and I guess I just expected it to be a bit more varied and there to be a few more options to work a bit harder for fitter people in the group. I totally understand that you have to cater for all levels in each class but more than half the class were very fit and active and I felt like we could have done with a bit more heat. Especially for the Saturday morning class which I left feeling quite under-worked and like I needed to go for a run to work off some energy!"

    "3) the massage was lovely but we were charged more than double the masseurs normal going rate. I don’t know if this is normal commission rates (?) but it seems a bit steep to me. We found a flier from the masseuse showing her normal rate shown to be 30 GBP. I was charged 65 GBP."

  • Beoordeling van Admin response from Chillout Retreats to Sophie Middleton

    "Thank you for your constructive feedback, our aim is to improve and positively develop our retreats in any way that we can. As a rule we do offer different levels, variety and options to suit our guests wide range of abilities in classes. On this particular retreat we did have a couple of guests requiring extra care, recovering from invasive cancer treatment, so the teacher felt it more appropriate to keep the retreat 'chilled out' as that is the vibe what we hoped to create for everyone. The treatment rates are fixed across all venues and are inline with current prices and, quite rightly as you pointed out here, do reflect commissions and treatment room rentals that we have to pay. Once again thank you for your feedback and we are pleased that you did enjoy the retreat, found it very relaxing and enjoyed meeting the lovely people. Chillout Retreats"

    "I would like to confirm that our total experience at the Devon Chillout retreat was wonderful. We relaxed – I mean ‘chilled out’, learnt loads, stretched, meditated, laughed, walked, ate super food and came away feeling so much better, maybe it should be available on the NHS! We will be back for more I’m sure. Keep it up, the ingredients are definitely right."

    "What a wonderful week we shared, out of all the 8 different Yoga retreats I have been on, around the world, this one has been the best one by far. The reason for this is that the company was superb, each and every one of you contributed to making this my favorite retreat ever and I am delighted and proud to have met you all. We all agree how wonderful the food was, the venue, the weather and how lovely to share the yoga with people of varying degrees of experience. Well done Nat on making the classes so inclusive for all at whatever level."

    "I arrived on my chillout retreat unable to focus on anything, extremely stressed and wanting to become more relaxed but stronger in body and mind. Life's stresses and prolonged competing priorities had drained me so that I could no longer make decisions that included my own wellbeing because I did not exist on my list of priorities. Chillout retreats showered us all with so many wonderful experiences - invigorating yoga, peaceful meditation, amazing food - friendship and love in the wonderful setting of Puglia - all that the mind and body craves for. I am now mended."

    "I was lucky enough to WIN a CHILLOUT RETREAT at the OM Yoga Show in London last October. My first ever retreat! I was so impressed with the beautiful Barn venue and vast views over Arundel. What made it so special was that Chillout Retreats is family run by sisters Nat and Lucy - Nat teaches yoga and mindfulness, while Lucy dishes up delicious, nourishing veggie food. Their daughters helped with mealtimes, cooking pancakes and making desserts and even clearing away the dishes. Together, they created a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. There were 3 yoga classes and 1 yogalates class over the weekend, each with a different theme - from restorative to dynamic, with easy-to-follow guidance and lots of fun with balancing and partner poses. I enjoyed doing core and stability moves, balancing a ball on your back, and imagining you're a king prawn in a sushi roll, while lying back over your partner in childs pose. We also had two long evening mindfulness sessions, on the breath and on compassion. It's so rare in modern life to treat yourself to a longer meditation. I was a little nervous about who was going to be on the retreat, and how we would mix, but Nat & Lucy created an optimal environment for us to relax and have a laugh together. We ate together, went on a walk exploring the beautiful cathedral, castle and surrounding countryside in monsoon rains, (we saw the funny side!) and had fun creating and sharing visions in a life coaching workshop. The retreat lived up to its title for everyone, and the following Monday morning, when my daughter shared the fact that she hadn't brought her homework book home over the weekend, and had lost all her uniform shirts in the last couple of weeks, there were no raised voices, just two people calmly discussing the best way forward. That's the power of Chillout Retreats."

My mind seems much less cluttered, and more able to focus and stay focused, and I know Jo has benefitted from being able to get a decent deep sleep most nights which is a big plus for both of us. We laugh most days but mostly when we are happy and chilled - you can benchmark how good a weekend is by our laughter, so I think that demonstrates an A+ for this one."
