WEEKEND RETREAT Fri 30th Oct-Sun 1st Nov, 42 ACRES in Somerset with Angela Roberts & Simona Hernandez
42 Acres is a beautiful retreat centre within a 40 minute drive of Bath. It offers an enchanting and peaceful meeting place conducive to refreshment of mind, body and spirit. Situated within wonderfully tranquil surroundings, 42 Acres offers excellent facilities and superb home grown award-winning food. The sumptuous surroundings and the breath-taking countryside are perfect for your time to retreat, recharge, and reconnect to the world in a more balanced, purposeful way.
Resident head chef Mark Mabon is as passionate about foraging and sourcing local, ethical and sustainable ingredients as he is about whipping them up into tasty and innovative dishes. While vegetables and plants are seen as the centre of the plate and most of the retreats follow a vegetarian menu, the food at 42 Acres takes an all-inclusive approach. The property prides itself on supporting small-scale artisan growers and organic produce, with a passionate focus on wholesome, honest and delicious food. Raw cheese, fresh sourdough, the chef’s own sauerkraut and digestion-boosting kimchi feature alongside other health-giving dishes such as beetroot and sprouted sunflower-seed pâté, polenta toasts and raw chocolate mousse. A warm glass of comforting turmeric milk is the perfect way to round off the day before bed.
The retreat will be led by two experienced teachers with over 45 years of teaching experience between them. The classes will cover asana, pranayama, philosophy, chanting and restorative/relaxation and myofascial release practices. There will also be time for walking, relaxing, quiet contemplation and massage.

There is also a mature Walnut tree and Atlantic and Lebanon cedars. Down by the river you may spot Kingfishers or the white-legged Damselfly (platycnemis pennipes). You may hear the Green or Greater Spotted Wood- peckers and in the evening you may hear Tawny Owls.
