We are packing our bags and heading to the wild coastline of the Causeway Coast, Northern Ireland. Our three day discovery wellness retreat will be held at the luxurious Cloughorr Estate. Boasting stunning ocean views of the North Antrim coastline and its very own restorative dipping lake.
An explorative three day retreat that rejuvenates, challenges and inspires in equal measures and that will breathe clarity and balance back into the soul. If you want time to explore and reconnect in a wholesome and supportive space then this retreat is for you.
We’re taking over the incredible Cloughorr Estate, a nine bedroom modern luxury estate standing proud along the wild Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland. The rooms are modern and spacious with extensive grounds, cosy wood burning fires, calming ocean views and its very own dipping pond. We run our retreats family style, some bathrooms and all common areas are shared.

Fueling the body is a vital part of retreat life. Food is nutritious, hearty and vegetarian with focus on setting up the body and mind for the retreat's programme. Bright, flavorsome and all prepared by our in house cook. We also cater to your specific dietary requirements should you have any.
Challenge your idea of relaxation and immerse yourself in music and movement. Guided movement mediation is not only fun but deeply powerful and emotive in reconnecting with the self and finding clarity.
Rugged cliff top hiking; come experience the natural elements of the Causeway Coast and allow them to awaken your senses, literally, embracing the wind, rain and sun, whatever nature has to offer us, use it to your benefit. We hike 5 miles along breath-taking cliff top views. Spotting Scottish islands, remote bays and the awe-inspiring Giants causeway.
Harnessing the power of cold water is nothing new; written in ancient text from moons ago, its revitalising, energising qualities still firmly hold true today. Never has it been more effective in engaging both body and mind into the present space, awakening the senses and releasing the mind of tension and unnecessary thinking, and trust us when we say it feels incredible.
Challenge yourself and feel free to join in on a cold water dipping therapy, allowing yourself to find freedom and community in something as simple as a cold plunge.
Lie back and just be, as you allow yourself to let go as you follow gentle instruction in this guided meditation practice and feel through the emotive sound of live harp music from our very own professional musician.
We start the mornings as we mean to go on, gentle hatha yoga to awaken the body followed by a breathwork practice and meditation.
Itinerary subject to change due to weather conditions
Meditation isn’t all about sitting still, oh no - in fact quite the opposite depending on your style. Meditation through movement and sound to attain thoughtlessness and connectivity are sometimes more effective depending of the person at the particular moment. In a playful non-serious way, become an inquisitive child and allow yourself to be free of judgement and tension as we move the body to free the mind.
Whether you are a first timer with an open mind or a meditation pro, our retreats are always unlocking new layers of the self; as any meditator would know: no two meditations are ever the same.
Everything used is reusable, recyclable and we also abide by the leave no trace policy when off on our adventures. So our home can remain just as wild as it was found.
Everything is better when shared, meet likeminded soul seekers and connect through experience. Simple.
