The 2-night, 3-day rambling retreat in North Cornwall offers a rejuvenating experience amidst the rugged coastline, winding countryside paths and taking in the history of the local area. Participants will have the chance to fully immerse themselves in the natural surroundings, absorbing in the beautiful blue sea, lush green fields and share all of this with a friend for FREE. That's right, free! With every full paying guest you can bring a friend, loved one and your canine friend to enjoy this experience with you.
The retreat provides ample opportunities for self-care, meditation, and connecting with nature. Guests will have the chance to indulge in wholesome food including fresh, nourishing plant-based meals that support their well-being.
Accommodation options cater to different preferences. Those seeking comfort can choose the spacious glamping option with fresh linen, while others looking for a simpler experience can opt for camping, enjoying spacious pitches and stunning sea views.
As the day winds down, participants can gather around campfires, taking in the breathtaking sunsets and gazing at the star-studded night sky. Join us for an extraordinary night of celestial discovery and stargazing with our local team of passionate astronomers!

Here at Atlantic Horizons we recognise how your dog can be an integral part of the family and therefore we would not want them to miss out on a little holiday too! Dogs are welcome to join you on retreat for no extra charge but it is important that they get to be a part of the whole process, therefore the dog must be able to join you on all of the walks as well as travel to and from the start locations either in the shared mini bus provided or in your own vehicle. Dogs must be well behaved and generally happy around other dogs. They must also be kept on a lead on the main site and there is a dog run area where they can be let off of the lead.
NOTE: We will be walking the coast path where it is recommended that dogs remain on a lead

Participants have the flexibility to choose between glamping or camping, and every day is infused with opportunities for meditation and connection with the stunning natural surroundings of North Cornwall's coastline, countryside, and historic moorland.
