Cornwall Yoga Retreat
Cornwall Yoga Retreat – October 2nd – 6th
with Jock Orton
Join us for a 4-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 practising 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 an optional guided walk to either Perranporth or Holywell beach to take in the majestic Cornish coastline.
The afternoons are free for you to do as you wish. If you want to learn to surf or SUP (stand up paddleboard) we can give you the contact details of local schools.
There will be a technique masterclass at 5pm each day before dinner. The content of each masterclass will vary depending on what comes up in the morning practice or you can ask questions about anything you would like to work on in your own practice.

Cooking was fab, accommodation is very comfortable and treatments were fun and relaxing. But the best part is the relaxed and warm atmosphere – thank you for being so welcoming!
Lovely long weekend - could happily have been for longer
I honestly don’t think we could have asked for more from a retreat and I am inexpressibly grateful to all three of you.
Thank you so much for looking after us all so well, and for all your delicious healthy cooking. None of us expected the food to be so amazing.
Food, accommodation all luxurious with the added extra ingredient of love sprinkled over the top! The studio is lovely with its picturesque setting and you can’t help but be made to feel welcome. Thank you for providing a safe space that we could all relax, unwind, laugh and have fun.
You are very kind, loving and opening, so easy to feel like home. Best place ever!
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.
Lovely atmosphere – we all felt so welcomed by the team / family – Emma, Amy, Jock & Scott! Great teaching, lovely food, comfortable beds. Ps loved the early starts!
Thank you for the amazing retreat! What really made it was how you were as people. You were easy to talk to, friendly & obviously really care about what you do – the food, practice and how you interact with people. Accommodation was great & very comfortable.
Thanks for looking after us so well and for being so generous with your time and energy it’s been a wonderful week.
Thank you so much for the most amazing two weeks, such great hospitality, amazing food, many many thanks, love Satya xxx
Thank you for being such amazing hosts. I’ve had a wonderful week and you made us feel so welcome and comfortable at the retreat. Emma cheers for the absolutely scrumptious food, I’ve enjoyed every bite! Jock, thanks for the awesome adjustments and general teachings, you’re both complete stars. I will certainly be back!
Your open-heartedness and the safe space you all created through everything from Emma’s first emails to the food, the accommodation the loan of the library and of course the teaching, gave the most amazing opportunity to deepen our practice.
The food was the most amazing I've ever tasted! Jock, Emma and the staff are all very warm, friendly and welcoming. Thank you so much, see you next time!
The Yoga Studio
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.
We serve is all homemade delicious vegetarian, organic and homegrown where possible. We like to grow as much as we can because we know that great food starts with great ingredients. It’s an in-joke at Lime House that the feedback we have from our retreats always lists the food first and foremost!
The surrounding area
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 surf. The studio is surround by 7 acres, including stunning gardens and farmland. We 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. We overlook Holywell beach and it’s very distinctive islands of Gull rocks Holywell is regularly used as a backdrop for filming, from everything from Game of Thrones, James Bond to Poldark.
