The daily grind is filled with blaring traffic jams, endless emails and mounting piles of dishes. So, when a rare bank holiday comes along, it’s the perfect opportunity to trade in the chaotic city life for a restorative getaway in the breathtaking British countryside.

If you’re craving a restful recharge in nature, this 4-day yoga retreat in the rolling hills of the Cotswolds will leave you feeling refreshed and full of life.   

This epic escape is rooted in the lush landscape of Badminton, just over two hours outside of London. The peaceful village in Gloucestershire is home to scenic horse riding trails, magical woodland walks, and of course the great game of Badminton. Nestled in this green oasis, wellness seekers can awaken their senses and bring harmony back to their lives with carefully crafted yoga, meditation and breathwork classes. For nature lovers, there are wild foraging adventures as well as silent walks in the forest. 

Guests will feel right at home in the cosy, historic cottage. Groups and families can enjoy spacious twin rooms while the luxury private suites are ideal for those seeking some quality time on their own. Magical gardens and mature woodlands surround the property, creating an idyllic location for restorative Hatha yoga sessions, morning meditation or a refreshing run. The expansive Deer Park is just a stone’s throw away from the cottage with plenty of scenic walking trails for avid amblers and spots to relax in the sun. Guests can also stop off at the outdoor court and get their hearts racing with a quick game of tennis. 

The retreat programme is jam-packed with invigorating activities that offer guests a full mind and body reset in nature. Day one starts with an energising Vinyasa flow session followed by a sacred cacao ceremony in the evening. The ancient ritual rebalances the energies within and opens up the heart to love and joy. During the retreat, practitioners will have the opportunity to plunge into an array of refreshing activities, including morning runs, mindful walks through Badminton Deer Park, ecstatic dance classes, breathwork sessions and a foraging adventure with Neil, the resident woodland guru. But freshly foraged herbs and veggies won’t be all that’s on the menu. 

This getaway is designed to help guests step out of negative habits and kickstart a healthier lifestyle, especially when it comes to their diet. The retreat is centred around a range of nourishing dishes that are organically sourced and brimming with nutrients. Vegan meals are freshly prepared each day by a high-end London chef. Each dish will showcase fragrant herbs and delicious fruits and vegetables picked straight from the garden, allowing guests to savour nature’s many delights. 

This luxurious yoga holiday in the Cotswolds is teeming with opportunities to relax, reconnect and simply breathe. Instead of sitting in front of the telly or visiting a crowded mall, do something for yourself this bank holiday. The retreat runs from the 2nd of June to the 5th, as well as over the last weekend in August.
