THURSDAY 10 - SUNDAY 13 MARCH 2022

Escape with Felicity for a three-night retreat at Boconnoc, one of Cornwall’s most stunning stately homes. Representing the heights of Cornish luxury, this is a retreat venue like no other. Relax in exquisitely designed rooms, indulge in delicious healthy food and allow your body and mind to unwind with twice daily yoga classes, a sound bath, wellbeing treatments and walking. During the retreat you can do as much or as little as you please; rise and shine to the incredible Cornish landscapes at your doorstep, put on your walking boots to explore the nearby coastal paths, or be pampered from head to toe by making the most of the wide range of wellbeing and beauty treatments on offer.

This retreat is an opportunity to slow down and make time for yourself - away from distractions and to-do lists - for you to be fully present and to reconnect with your most authentic self. Through activities that create space for rest, reflection and rediscovery, you’ll leave feeling revitalised.

THE VENUE

Tucked down two miles of private drive, as soon as you enter Boconnoc you are transported to another world; a world of tranquillity, peace and breath-taking scenery. Ancient trees inhabit the vast corners of the estate, whilst the gardens burst with extraordinary blooms.

Boconnoc’s story begins thousands of years ago. Since the days of the Domesday Book, people have inhabited this beautiful tract of Cornwall—and the estate itself is alive with centuries of history.

Boconnoc House sits in the heart of the estate. Restored to its former glory following a 12-year restoration project by the Fortescue family, this Georgian country house is surrounded by rolling countryside and immaculate lawns. Capturing the enchantment and beauty of Cornwall, the only sounds you will hear are the birds and the trees swaying gently in the breeze.

The house offers many fabulous reception rooms, each with a distinct style and personality. You will relax in style; the yoga classes will be in the light and airy Garden Room, you can curl up with a book in the cosy library, or snuggle up in the Smoking Room surrounded by an open fire and flickering candles.

The bedrooms blend contemporary design with charming historic elements and there are a range of accommodation options to suit your budget, with a choice of staying in the exquisite main house, or in one of the charming cottages adjacent to the main house.

THE YOGA

There will be six yoga sessions over the weekend, including meditation, pranayama and asana.  The morning sessions will awaken the body and mind ready for the day ahead. The evening sessions will be gentle and restorative to allow the body and mind to relax.

The retreat is suitable for all experience levels, including for those who are newer to yoga. If you have not practiced yoga with Felicity before, you can read more about her and her teaching style and experience here.

THE WALKS

Over the weekend there are two optional group walks. On the Friday, we'll head to the coast for a circular walk along the coastal path and Fowey Estuary, with the option of going down to the beach for a dip at the end. On the Saturday, we'll explore the stunning grounds of Boconnoc.

THE SOUND BATH

On Friday evening, the incredible energy healer Jane Everett will join us to work her magic. Jane's work encompasses therapeutic, meditative and healing journeying in sound; accented by powerful ritual exploration.

THE FOOD

The gorgeous and super talented Kate Munro Boot (aka The Mindful Chefette) will be with us preparing a delicious array of nourishing feasts. Kate's food is simply stunning; it's made with layer upon layer of flavour and texture, all brought together with love. If you're wondering what we mean, scroll through the images below and then check out her photos on Instagram (@themindfulchefette). All meals will be vegetarian or vegan. Any special diets can be catered for; please advise us of any specific requirements when booking.

THE COOKING WORKSHOP

In this cooking workshop, Kate will guide us through some of her favourite recipes so that you can learn how to recreate her magical dishes when you return home.

THE TREATMENTS

Our favourite local therapists will be coming to the house to offer a wide range of wellbeing and beauty treatments during the weekend including massage, reflexology, facials and reiki. These will be available at an extra cost and you will be able to book these in advance of the weekend.
