Dartmoor is infamous for its vast moorland where Dartmoor ponies roam its craggy landscape. Stunning forests, rivers, wetlands and tors (rock formations) break up the open moors and create one of the most diverse ecosystems in the country.
Although Dartmoor may seem vast and wild it in fact holds a deep and rich history of human settlement. This incredible history can be found across the National Park and the fascinating stories that it holds. A walk across Dartmoor feels like stepping back in time. With a never-ending number of trails and paths, it is a hiker’s haven and with beautiful villages dotted around, accessible too.
On our retreats around Dartmoor, we take the time to truly enjoy this unique landscape and everything its diversity has to offer. Not only do we go hiking to experience the beauty of it but also enjoy wild foraging walks and talks to learn about the edible and medicinal plants accessible. Our venue is perfectly positioned to do just that, being surrounded by woodland, the moorland brook and walking distance out and onto the moor.
"Wonderful retreat. Beautiful accommodation and restaurant quality food. Yoga was brilliantly planned to suit every session time."
Joanne - August 2022
Energising yoga to start each day, restorative to finish. Delicious healthy beautifully presented food. All in a peaceful location. Foraging and hiking sessions are led by experts in their fields.
"I very much needed a change of scene and to restore my energy levels and calm and this retreat was perfect. The food was out of this world (I have requested recipes!) and the teaching was wonderful - I'm not that advanced and was able to do the entire practice and also learn something new. There were also options for those who were more advanced, so everyone was happy. The estate was beautiful and the walks, both silent and open, were great. I can honestly say that this was beyond my expectation and I will definitely come back to AdventureYogi again."
