"Great escape to the countryside"

loved the location, the accommodation, the yoga/movement/sound

the weather helped so much, as we did some sessions on the lawn. Amber is great teacher and a wonderful soul. Hollie prepared some amazing food throughout my stay.

Abbey did a wonderful massage which complimented the whole stay

Meeting like minded people, trying new types of yoga. All in all great fun, felling totally Zen'ed out

"Good experience"

Lula was a great instructor. She offered different approaches to yoga and other experiences such as quigong, and was open and gave a lot of herself, which I really appreciated.

"Relaxed & Renewed "

A truly amazing experience for me. Wonderfully lead by Lula, I left feeling so much lighter than when I arrived. Everything from the food to the accommodation was above and beyond. I will treasure my time there and look forward to coming back.

"Peaceful weekend retreat"

This retreat was a peaceful weekend getaway! The food was incredible and the yoga was accessible to everyone - we had a mixture of abilities in the group from complete beginners to yoga teachers. Everyone was friendly and welcoming and our teacher was lovely Lula - she was super knowledgable in health & nutrition and the mechanics of the body and she guided us though many different types of yoga and meditation techniques so every class was different and interesting. My accommodation was perfect - I had the fluffiest bed all to myself and felt like I was literally sleeping on a cloud! I woke up to the sound of the sheep outside and it was dreamy. The massage was also excellent :)

"Pure bliss!! Came back empty with empty mind"

After pandemic from last year I have been working from home and was looking forward to rejuvenate and this retreat was just perfect for anyone who is looking to relax and empty the mind.

The weather turned too hot but its good to have this heatwave. Fortunately we had awesome weather during the retreat and enjoyed every bit of it.

The sessions were amazing with different styles of yoga. For me the highlight was the sound bath meditation and the vegan food was sumptuous and the place was like heaven.

Appreciate our instructor Lula , Amber and the chef Vanessa for giving us everything we needed. Highly recommend this place. I can assure you will forget all your worries and anxiety and return back with empty mind and learnings for more yoga practices to follow.

Thanks a lot for making my first retreat experience amazing.

I even went to Hastings (near Battle) to a beach by myself on 3rd day afternoon which was amazing old town by the sea. Thanks Amber for recommending.

"Amazing wellness escape - close to London"

The quality of professionals one can learn loads from, lovely country side surroundings, the ability to enjoy a massage session on the premises, proximity of the seaside for the stunning sunset views and swimming. Highly recommend!

"Most relaxing weekend"

After a very challenging year, this retreat was the best gift I could have ever given myself. The house we stayed in was beautiful, surrounded by nature. Amber's teachings were marvelous. One of the biggest highlights of the weekend was definitely trying many new styles of yoga and meditation. I especially enjoyed the free movement workshop. Holly's nourishing vegan cooking was a treat for both the body and the soul. Abby's massage was excellent and revitalizing, I have returned home feeling re-energized and so much better. Thank you so much for a wonderful break!

"Wonderful weekend"

It was so fantastic to get away from it all, to meet new people, to eat delicious food and to be immersed in yoga and mediation for the weekend. Lula was a great host and her knowledge was so impressive. Although I’ve done yoga for years, I learnt so much from Lula. I left feeling both rejuvenated and rested and also very inspired. It’s been just over a week since I returned but the positive effects are still with me. I very much recommend going on retreat here.

"Yoga Retreat Bliss"

This was my first yoga retreat and definitely won't be my last. The classes were so varied and introduced me to different forms of yoga and meditation, qigong, etc. The food was absolutely incredible and the venue was so secluded and serene. Val and Lula brought the most amazing energy to the weekend, and the other attendees were so warm and welcoming. Everything was amazing and this was just the reset that I needed!

"Such a heart blowing experience :) "

I am not sure where to start! This to me was a heart blowing experience. I was struggling for the past couple of months and needed some space and time to help me find myself and find some peace within. Well, this retreat gave me that and so much more. As an introvert, I was a bit apprehensive to going into a place where I do not know anyone, but this changed the moment I met such lovely and welcoming people. There were no expectations or judgments from anyone; I loved being able to sit in the sofa reading a book with some lovely music in the background and listening to the sounds and smells of Lula's cooking (brought me great memories from my childhood!).

Valerie's Nidra, flow and yin sessions were something else, same with Lula's wholesome food and flow sessions.

All of this topped up with gorgeous surroundings, a so much needed massage from Abby, lovely sunsets and such beautiful people. Just thinking about the weekend brings warmth to my heart :)

Thank you Valerie and Lula for all your kindness.

I did like almost everything about this.

The location is beautiful. You really feel in the middle of nature.

The environment that Amber creates makes you feel like you are in a different reality. It allowed me to relax like never before.

The food is awesome. I haven't eat so well outside my home in months.

The yoga and meditation classes are comprehensible and easy to follow. Perfect for beginners.

The overall experience has been awesome. I couldn't recommend it enough.

Amber was so calm and lovely- her energy permeated the whole weekend. The diverse yoga styles, the calm pacing, the magnificent vegan meals and beautiful house made it a real treat. Our group of strangers gelled together beautifully and shared wonderful stories and ideas and many laughs. Bonds of friendship and understanding were built! Heart warming 😍

"Perfect recharging weekend"

The location was easy to get to. Set in the beautiful Kent countryside there was lots lovely scenery to enjoy on a stroll during free time. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The yoga was paced well, not too strenuous or intense, with a good balance on meditation.

The food was excellent.

The house in Kent was beautiful and had everything you could need for a relaxing weekend. Amber was very accommodating and the yoga practice was adapted to the needs of all- I am beginners level and Amber made sure to include alternatives for me where necessary. The food was extremely delicious and nourishing and I have come away with lots of inspiration to try new recipes.

"A complete immersive experience"

This weekend is the definition of a yoga retreat weekend. Wonderful accommodation - luxurious and restful with spectacular sun sets viewed from the veranda across the open field land and horizon in the distance. Yoga and meditation sessions provided by a very knowledgeable coach (Amber) including calming scents and sounds to accompany the yoga. Introduction to vegan foods - a showcase of the best flavours and recipes. Like minded people making great company and new friendships. Wonderful, enjoyed every minute.

The whole weekend was exactly what I needed and more than I could have hoped for to help me to reconnect amongst wonderful people and in a stunning location. Amber is an incredible yoga instructor and a warm and lovely person. With her help the retreat brought me back to myself and has equipped me with tools to maintain my peace during my daily life. The food was to die for too. Highly recommend.

"Kent - June 2019"

My sister and I found the whole event flawless...the warm welcome, delicious food, beautiful spaces including bedroom & communal areas. We loved the homely feel created by the lighting, plants, wood burner and the AGA. The hot tub and neighbouring sheep were an added bonus. We appreciated the thoughtful balance of the yoga sessions, massage, nutrition workshop & free time to ‘just be’. We enjoyed a pleasant walk into the town centre and had time to explore the local museum (Maison Dieu). We found Amber and Kayleigh so engaging and accommodating and came away feeling fully refreshed.

From the second we arrived we were welcomed warmly and introduced to the others. We were shown around and clear instructions were given on the format of the first evening.

The soft nature of Amber, the excellent food and the yoga was amazing. It didn't matter that I wasn't very good as instructions were given and all levels were catered for.

"Perfect retreat to de-stress & recharge "

This retreat was all & more than I ever expected. I’m not a vegetarian however the food was some of the best I’ve evet eaten. The host, Amber, was one of the kindest,calmest people I’ve ever met & the variety of yoga was great. The group for me, was perfect as we were just ladies & I felt so relaxed & easily bonded. The retreat itself is set in fields so could go for a walk or just sit & read in your spare time. The itinerary was set out perfectly & if there is a massage available definitely take one, it was very good. I wouldnt hesitate in booking again.

I loved all of it. Amber was such a beautiful person to begin with and her yoga style was great. The food made by Kaylee (sorry if I've spelt it wrong) was incredible, I have already given some recipes a go and loving them! The house was stunning and felt like home instantly

This retreat has set the standards for the ones to follow but I will be going back with Amber <3

Thank you for the time you gave us and the space for being able to let go :)

"A tranquil and restoring weekend away at Syndale Lodge."

I loved the accommodation. Everything was thought and planned out meticulously for the comfort and satisfaction of every guest. The attention to detail was amazing , from the organic, freshly made food to the teas, massage therapy and must importantly the yoga sessions. The yoga sessions consisted of a good balance of training for beginners to more intermediate yoga for the more experienced. The availability of homemade solution to clean the matts after each session just showed the care and effort put into this retreat. A big thank you to Amber and Kayley for their amazing effort and planning.

The weekend was the perfect mix of a variety of yoga, meditation, group activities and me time. The house is beautiful with various places to relax including a hot tub with stunning views. Amber is a great teacher making you feel at ease and relaxed, yet refreshed and empowered. She is extremely knowledgable. Kayleigh's food is so tasty and her patience with all the questions I asked was great. It has defiantly made me change my cooking habits. Just perfect thank you.

"Beautiful house with beautiful people"

The lodge is beautiful and all activities are geared towards calm and nourishment of the body and mind. Group activities are encouraged but never forced and there was ample opportunity for quality "me-time". The yoga instructor and the chef were both so friendly and always happy to chat. I had countless questions about health/diet and they were great with their advice and support!

What an amazing weekend! Fantastic location, with a stunning sun porch and views of endless sheep-strewn fields. Accommodation in a gorgeous house infused with an atmosphere of calm and serenity. Delicious, healthy food prepared by a professional vegan chef. Fun yoga and meditation classes suitable for all levels, especially enjoyable open air activities. A deep tissue massage out of this world, the best I’ve ever had. Friendly, welcoming, relaxing atmosphere, quality time spent in the company of like-minded people. Thank you Amber and Kayley for making us all feel truly welcome and well-looked after, for creating this little piece of heaven on Earth.
