About Bonhays

Bonhays is a beautiful eco Retreat Centre, nestled in the hills of West Dorset, between Bridport and Lyme Regis and just two miles from the sea.

The settling is secluded and peaceful, surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Set around a central courtyard, with the soft curves of the straw buildings and the hills beyond, there is quiet and stillness here. Bonhays has lovely communal areas to relax and chat in as well as many peaceful and secluded spots for quiet and reflection. There is also an indoor heated swimming pool.

The coast and beaches are just 2 miles away if you want to get a dose of sea air and enjoy a beach walk, or you may simply want to enjoy a peaceful moment on the decking and watch the sunset, swim peacefully in the pool, share wonderful meals in the conservatory, practise yoga and meditation. Be and rejuvenate.

Evie, the chef at Bonhays, sources organic ingredients locally if she has not grown them herself and then with her imaginative palette she produces lovely looking, healthy and very tasty food. All the food is vegetarian.

Some testimonials

"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..."

"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 through. 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."

"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 nurturing and calm. A joy! xx"

"a wonderful weekend. I really can't say anything critical at all - the place was unique and cozy, the food was really impressive, the people were all friendly, the yoga was brilliant, the other activities were varied and fun (film, walks around house, chanting, time on ones own or chatting with new friends)."
