Friday 29 April – Monday 2 May 2022
with Jock Orton
Join us for a 3-night yoga retreat in our brand-new purpose-built yoga studio on the North Cornish coast.
Each day will start with a guided yoga class, covering specific breathing techniques and physical postures (asana’s) taught by Lime House’s principal teacher Jock. Whether you are new to yoga or have been practicing for years Jock is experienced enough to be able to offer you personalised instruction suitable for any level. Jock has over twenty years’ experience and regularly teaches around the world.
After breakfast there will be free time with opportunity to join guided walks with optional sea dip so you can take in the majestic Cornish coastline. You can spend the day relaxing, taking advantage of massage treatments or book onto our paddle-boarding lesson.
The afternoon classes will be a mixture of class and workshop-style sessions tailored to the needs and requests of the group.
Is a purpose-built world-class yoga studio that is the only one of its kind in the UK. It includes a 14-metre wide ‘Iyengar rope wall’. with a state-of-the-art AV (audiovisual) set-up.
I honestly don’t think this trip could have been any less stress free. I love it here, it feels like home!
The food was absolutely amazing. The room was so comfortable and the whole atmosphere made me feel right at home.
I absolutely loved the retreat. The rooms were warm and welcoming, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The food was fantastic, so much so I asked for all the recipes! The cooking tasted like it was filled with love. The yoga was exactly what I needed, a welcoming environment that was challenging with a good dose of fun. I cannot thank you all enough!
The food was fantastic, the room and house wonderful, clean and warm. The service is the best I’ve had. And I haven’t even started on the yoga yet, which has been so good. The teachers are not only experienced but teach really well. Will definitely come back.
The food we serve is all home-made, delicious vegetarian and vegan fare. Brunch offers a buffet style of homemade granola, porridge, eggs, toast and spreads, yoghurt and fresh fruit. Dinner might be roasted vegetable ratatouille, roast potatoes with a range of colourful salads followed by poached pears and vanilla cream. It’s a standing joke that reviews about Lime House tend to list the food first!
The Smugglers Inn is either a brisk 12-minute walk away via the road or a 25-minute scenic amble away…. however it usually takes a little longer on the way home!
A 30-minute walk away to the south across the dunes is the lost church of St Piran. Originally built in the 5-6th century by the patron saint of Cornwall, St Piran, it became engulfed by the shifting sands in the 10th century. Lost for hundreds of years it was rediscovered in the 18th century. It was reburied in the early 20th century to protect it from vandalism. In 2015 it was re-excavated by the St Piran Trust. The lost Church is one of the oldest and most important sacred sites in Britain, second only in age to Iona Abbey in Scotland
Situated a stone’s throw from one of the finest beaches in Cornwall with stunning coastal walks and amazing surfing. The studio grounds back onto Penhale Dunes which are a designated SSSI (Special Site of Scientific Interest) and are home to rare flora and fauna not found anywhere else in the country.
Our closest beach is Perranporth which is over 2 miles of golden sand and amazing surf. Holywell is the beach we overlook and is regularly used as a backdrop for filming. Everything from Game of Thrones, Poldark to James Bond were filmed at Holywell.
