About 42 Acres

We are very excited to return to boutique retreat venue, 42 Acres, for a New Year Yoga Retreat. So we are back once again to celebrate another New Year in idyllic surroundings with great teachers offering yoga, meditation, pranayama, music, singing and massage.

Also on offer are beautiful countryside walks, delicious wholesome organic food, fireside chats, party games, new friends and the space to just be...

Book early to make sure you can join us in our New Year celebration of love, life and friendship. Come on your own or with your friends, either way you're guaranteed to have a great time and begin 2018 with a clear mind, an open heart and a rejuvenated spirit...what better way to start the year!

42 Acres is beautiful retreat space, encircled by seven hundred acres of ancient forest. Sustainability and comfort are at the forefront of the 42 Acres vision with reclaimed materials used to fit-out the interiors of the property. All of the power is renewable and self-generated through biomass and solar.

The New Year programme

This retreat will be an opportunity for you to have some quiet time, space and reflection, alongside a morning and evening programme of yoga, pranayama, meditation and much fun and celebration.

We will open the day with meditation and pranayama, followed by a 2 hour asana class between 8 and 10am. A delicious breakfast will then be served with free time and lunch to follow.

We will then meet again in the afternoon for a more restorative and gentle yoga practice. The day will close with singing and evening meditation. There will be a celebratory dinner on New Year's eve with fun and celebrations.

Participants are welcome to offer talks or workshops over the four days which we will try to fit into our schedule. Spontaneity is very likely!

This retreat is suitable for all levels of yoga.

Some testimonials

"42 Acres is a truly magical retreat: a sacred space of calm and peacefulness set in the restorative nature of Somerset..." XB

"42 Acres is a magical haven. The unintrusively cool interior design is in a league of its own and absolutely bang up to date, and yet, this beautiful home still retains its connection to the past. The setting is 42 acres of glorious nature, gorgeous English farmland, bounded by ancient meadows and forests. I experienced one of the most magical weekends at 42 acres and this place will forever be in my heart. I can't recommend it enough." SVS

"The house is beautifully appointed and has very comfortable luxurious rooms, the perfect place to get away from the stresses of everyday life and find some well needed peace. I will definitely be going back soon." MK

"I am still feeling the positive effects from my break. The location was beautiful, the food fantastic, the people lovely and Dory, by far, is the best teacher I have had in 18 years..." M

"I really enjoyed it all and found the space and quiet I needed ! Doing so much yoga was great! You are both so gifted at facilitating...so nurturing and calm. A joy!" J

"I really enjoyed it and I have to say that it was largely down to the skill of your facilitation and how well you work together. You both so clearly put happiness on the map from the beginning and it filtered thro. Everyone relaxed and smiled! I loved the gentle humour too. I also appreciated all the hard work behind the scene and your attention to detail. You were both so generous and thoughtful." C
