Had a fabulous day at Hill Farm. Felt relaxed and restored spending time forest bathing, reflecting and connecting. Beautiful surroundings and scrumptious food. Thank you Hayley and Tom for looking after us and giving us a day to remember. A wonderful experience that I would highly recommend.

Testimonial by Laura Aiken

Beautiful, nurturing and restorative. Hill Farm has a wonderful grounding energy and is a wonderful place to stay. I love staying here and have held two retreats here and always get fantastic reviews from my guests. Hayley and Tom are fantastic hosts and I’ll be back for many years to come

Testimonial by Geoff

I have just come back from a yoga and well-being retreat and it was fantastic. The farm is idyllic, and only about 45 minutes from Bristol on a good run. Hayley is a wonderful yoga teacher, technically skilled but very kind and helpful, while Tom's Forest Bathing sessions are a really enlightening experience. The food is fantastic too, and they are the perfect hosts. The only bad thing about the retreat was having to leave on the Sunday!

Testimonial by Alison

Hayley’s yoga classes have been an enormous help both physically and mentally during these difficult times. I always come away feeling more relaxed, calm and positive and my flexibility has definitely improved. Hayley is a wonderful teacher and has created a lovely, supportive online yoga community which I am so pleased to be a part of.

I first met Hayley two years ago when she did a yoga class in Monmouth. Have maintained seeing Hayley on zoom throughout the pandemic. Her enthusiasm & charm and expertise has been much appreciated throughout a very difficult time. I always look forward to classes.
