We have returned to Cornwall after a break, and we are so excited to share this adventure with you! We have relocated to the beautiful area of St Agnes. This area is known for its outstanding natural beauty and from the TV series Poldark, so imagine a dramatic coastline with crashing waves and stunning beaches.
Our yoga and surf retreats in Cornwall are very popular. Energise with 1.5 hours of yoga in the morning and after brunch, the day is yours to be as active or relaxed as you like. Try surfing, explore the gorgeous beaches nearby or treat yourself to a cream tea! Restore with 1.5 hours of yoga in the evening followed by a two-course healthy vegetarian evening meal.

Archery is a fantastic sport and an afternoon session can be organised at the venue itself. Our partners will bring all the required equipment directly to the venue, and arrange an afternoon’s archery for whomever is interested!

Coasteering is a relatively new adventure activity, and is now the UK’s fastest growing adventure sport. This company have all bases covered, especially in regards safety, and are accredited by the AALA (Adventure Activities Licensing Authority)

Paddle boarding & Kitesurfing
Based in Mount’s Bay in Western Cornwall (approx. 40 min drive from Five Elements), we can also offer Paddle boarding as well as sea kayaking and kitesurfing. Stand-Up Paddle boarding (SUP) is one of the world’s fastest growing water sports, and is now going mainstream in the UK. We can offer day courses, whereby the basics can be learnt by pretty much anybody within a couple of hours. It’s highly accessible, fun and social way to enjoy sea or inland waters. We also offer 1 day kitesurfing courses, and employ the very latest comms technology from teacher to student via the helmet.
Amy’s style of teaching comes from a place of nurturing. She wants you to feel free to explore the capabilities of your own body, respect your boundaries and learn how to heal and protect it. By blending strong, grounded hatha practises with the freedom found in Scaravelli and vinyasa she believes that each practise can help create the perfect balance between flexibility and stability in both body and mind.View teacher profile

Your accommodation in Cornwall is simply stunning. It is a traditional Cornish stone farmhouse that has been recently renovated to 5 star luxury. Set in 15 acres of private grounds with a woodland with a stream running through it and rolling hills with breath taking views of the Mithian Valley.
We can sleep 16 guests in 5* rooms spread across 3 separate accommodation options, the farmhouse, the cottage and the studio.
The Farmhouse: This is the main hub of the retreat, where you will gather for delicious meals, herbal teas and great chats.

Cosy Cottage: This is set back and sleeps 7 guests in two twin or double rooms, a twin room and a single room.
The Studio: This is a beautiful space best suited to a couple or friends who don’t mind sharing a double bed – who want the complete privacy. A self contained apartment with wood burner and kitchen, it’s a place to get cosy and totally switch off.
Lots of space: There are lots of areas and conservatories for you to relax in and feel like you are getting away from everyone to relax and have some personal space to read a book, enjoy the views and sit and while away the afternoon or evening.
The Yoga Studio: The yoga studio is adjacent to the farmhouse and is a beautiful space with high ceilings, wooden floor and lots of light. It can take up to 30 people doing yoga so our group size of 16 means plenty of room.
