New Year Hiking & Yoga Retreat in Brecon Beacons
New Year Brecon Beacons, Wales 29th December 2023 - 2nd January 2024
Just over the border into Wales, 10 minutes walk to Hay-on-Wye, is our Wales new year retreat. Relax in comfort and enjoy energising walks in the surrounding area, followed by warm fires and cosy yoga classes to restore.
We are excited to say our new year yoga retreats in the Brecon Beacons are back.
This December, join us for a 4 night new year yoga retreat in the Welsh countryside and enjoy the chance to get away from it all and see the new year in a bit differently. Our new year retreats are a time for you, to relax, enjoy walks in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park and curl up in front of the fire with a good book. The venue is situated right next to Hay-on-Wye in England and on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The nearest train station is Hereford
As it is the new year, we share a setting intentions workshop, to get clear on goals for 2024 and what you want to let go of from 2023 so that you start the new year with positivity and focus. With a New years eve feast and ceremony, January 1st will never feel so good.
Stay in a family-owned multi-property estate that dates back to 1176, it was originally a farm serving the local monastery. Since then, it has had stunning renovations to create a beautiful retreat space.
Why not stay in one of the main barns? Or maybe, try out a quirky converted wheat silo, perfect for two people. Either way, you will enjoy lots of space and room options.
Of course, get your hiking boots ready to enjoy 2 half-day guided hikes with qualified guides on two of the three full days of the retreat. On another day visit the delightful Hay on Wye for the afternoon which is within walking distance. Want to fully relax? Curl up in front of the open fire, or enjoy a massage from our talented team. Truly, you will feel rested and restored, ready for winter.
With up to 3.5 hours of yoga a day, delicious vegan/veggie food from one of our fabulous chefs and gorgeous accommodation you will feel cared for throughout.
