Yoga at Pengelly Retreat
Roll out your yoga mat at an exclusive getaway in lovely Cornwall
Pengelly Retreat is a true hidden gem, located in a tranquil and unspoilt rural location between the north and south
coasts of Cornwall. Created and run by Ruth and Jim Milligan, alongside their little daughter Aggie, this secret haven is
hidden away in five acres of rolling meadows, lakes, and gardens with two very private and exclusive lakeside properties 'The Boat House' and 'The Sail House'.
The serenity of Pengelly Retreat is ideal for those looking to practice yoga. Whilst guests are welcome to lay down their mats anywhere, one of the best outside yoga and meditation spots is on the deck overlooking the lake with the sound of the water all around.
Guests can book a private yoga session tailored to them with experienced yoga teacher and homeopath, Kim Hopkins. She teaches yoga at all levels and specialises in introducing people to the practice, encouraging those returning to yoga or working with them on areas they may wish to focus on.
You can also enjoy luxurious treatments in the comfort of your lakeside accommodation or in the serene surroundings of the stream-side tipi at the retreat. There's a range of holistic, spa and beauty treatments to choose from including aromatherapy, hot stone massage, reflexology and a relaxing couples massage with two therapists.

Minimum stays from 3 nights, with flexible arrival dates. £136 per night for the Sail House and from £153 for the Boat House. Visit: pengellyretreat.co.uk
