We give you permission to slow down. The weekend is tailored to be in sync with the slower rhythms of nature that this time of year presents. So come and enjoy…..
- Luxury accommodation to melt into.
- Divine, homemade food to nourish your body.
- Yoga to ease away winter stresses and strains.
- Deep relaxation and therapeutic calming meditations.
- Bracing coastal walks, taking in the fresh sea air, building up an appetite for cake and tea on your return.

You will leave so calm, content and chilled ready to take on the busy festive time ahead.

Our weekends take place at Plas Cadnant. A stylish, secluded country house on the Isle of Anglesey, nestled in 21 acres of private parkland, which gathers together for your pleasure; stunning views over Snowdon, a meandering river, magical waterfalls, world renowned historic gardens, lazy meadows, mature woodland and a new oak framed building perfect for yoga sessions. Described as one of the most amazing retreats on the Isle of Anglesey.
