We had a lovely 4 night break at Ocean Lodge in Newquay. The rooms are clean but very basic, but it was the staff running this yoga retreat who made it such good value. They made every effort to accommodate all levels of ability with both yoga and walking trips. Food was plentiful, home-style and delicious, served buffet style and at a large communal table which was friendly and gave an inclusive feeling to those guests attending on their own.If you are looking for stylish hotel facilities, advanced yoga and solitude this is not for you, but if you would like an introduction to yoga at a gentle pace in a friendly and welcoming environment and with the opportunity to take part in some beautiful coastal walks at a great price then this all-inclusive holiday is perfect. We came home feeling relaxed, refreshed and looking forward to our next yoga holiday. Thank you to Craig and Carol who run Ocean Lodge, Danielle who taught our yoga sessions and Suzanne who cooked healthy and delicious evening meals - you got it all right - but were also willing to learn our feedback to improve the service you offer in the future.

I had a lovely time! Very relaxing and thoroughly worth every penny. The walks were suited to my fitness levels, as was the yoga. I would recommend the break to anyone wanting to explore the Newquay coast line or are interested in starting yoga.

The yoga sessions from Danielle were perfect and I felt I improved a little every day. One highlight was doing the Sun Salutation early morning on the beach!The food was another highlight with Suzanne providing us with healthy but delicious dinners accompanied by a glass of wine. No way was this a starvation diet! Breakfasts were very good too. Delicious breads, coffee and fabulous fruit and vegetable smoothies made to order by Craig.Each day we were offered an interesting walk around the coastline stopping for lunch or coffees en route. Craig was careful that everyone did as much or as little walking as they wished and we could divide into smaller groups if we wanted.A visit to the spa at the Headland Hotel followed by lunch was another great day! Extra treatments were on offer each evening and I enjoyed a facial from Sue a massage from Danielle and a Reiki session from Suzanne which was amazing.All in all it was excellent break. Rooms are clean and basic but the activities and planning from Craig, Carol and Danielle were first class! I feel like a new woman!
I've just returned from Ocean Lodge and the new Zesty Breaks yoga and costal walks retreat they are now running. I'm still smiling from my time there and have continued my yoga on my return. If you are looking for an introduction to yoga in a relaxed, clean, and comfortable lodge, then this place is for you.The food was fantastic, freshly cooked, and plenty of it and the service was friendly and thoughtful with host Craig and Daniella a perfect mix of energy, fun, and local knowledge but also amazing at making you feel welcome and at home and judging if you're individual needs are to be included in a group or if you have come along to learn and take time to yourself. 3 days home and my calves still suitably ache from the beautiful walks and my ribs still ache from the laughter! I will be going back soon
A lovely yoga and walking holiday around the coast of Newquay. Friendly staff that made me feel like part of the family, lovely food, great beginners yoga classes, central location. Amazing, relaxing holiday!
