Yoga bunnies will love the low-key weekend retreats available at Trill Farm, enjoying plenty of opportunities to stretch their limbs, meditate and enjoy delicious organic cuisine.

There’s then opportunities to enjoy relaxing massages or to forage in the woods with evenings taken over by meditation sessions and organic meals prepared by River Cottage chefs.
