‘The ultimate yin and yang- pushed, cold, wet and happy, rewarded with blissful warmth, companionship, beautiful food and relaxation.’
-Fiona Richardson

This is a secret paradise hidden in the Abernethy Forest where I run Day Retreats every Tuesday from April to September.

As you drive through the grounds you will be greeted by a magical, cosy tepee with a fire to gather around and hammocks to relax in. Further on you come to a group of stunning cottages - www.thedellofabernethy.co.uk - the luxurious accommodation for the Weekend Retreat. The delicious food is often prepared by Polly Cameron, a trained chef and welcoming host – her family has owned Dell of Abernethy for four generations. The location is surrounded by forest trails, views to the Cairngorms and easy access to the tranquil Loch Garten.

This retreat is a unique collaboration to get involved in, bringing together a mixture of wild fitness sessions and cold water dips, yoga, Kombucha brewing and fermenting workshops, Talks from inspiring women and reiki massage. All activities are optional.
