Careful thought goes into researching the best possible locations for this yoga and running retreat. So when Wild Running found one, you can bet it’s pretty special. The High Nature Center is a 5-acre smallholding located on a coastal plateau, it is 130 meters above sea level on the South Devon Coast. The site is level and surrounded by mature hedges, it is a short walk away from a dramatic picturesque stretch of the southwest coast path and some of the most spectacular sandy beaches in England.

There are five homemade yurts available. The High Nature Center aims to bring together visitors attracted to the area for it’s a natural beauty, with local people who rely on the sea and landscape to provide them with the resources they need to prosper and sustain their livelihoods.

Heritage

The High Nature Center is located in a very special area, both in terms of its beauty and it’s geological and cultural heritage. If you walk from the center towards the sea, you will discover an ancient celtic field system positioned on Deckler’s Cliff, dating from 300 BC. These have survived due to their proximity to the cliff edge and are thus protected from certain modern farming methods. There are also the remains of hut circles, further evidence of prehistoric inhabitants.

Facilities

The current facilities on the site consist of 6 x 30 meters polytunnels, five of which are covered, one has been converted to keep chickens and ducks in one half. While the other half is passive solar showers and another tunnel a soft fruit cage. The site also has a borehole linked to a collector tank, mains water, and electricity throughout the site, composting toilets and a static caravan which is used as a site office.

Program

Routes

The routes are between 4 miles and 10, east or west along a beautiful section of the South West Coast Path towards East Prawle or Salcombe respectively.
