“We had a fabulous day retreat with Tom and Hayley as our hosts and teachers. I have only been to a couple of yoga classes and Hayley’s relaxed style made me feel very welcome and happy to do what I could and just relax when I couldn’t! The atmosphere of the whole experience was relaxed and restorative with beautiful food provided by Tom! We soaked up the forest bathing opportunity and then the use of the outdoor spa along with tea and cakes and other snacks whilst sitting in the sunshine chatting and getting to know each other. An experience I can’t wait to repeat! Thank you!”

Testimonial by A Happy Guest

I have just come away from a weekend retreat and it was absolutely brilliant. Hayley and Tom are fantastic hosts and couldn’t do enough for us. Hayley’s combination of Yin and Yang yoga, Tom’s forest bathing, and nourishing, tasty veggie food, the eco spa and yurt created the perfect blend of relaxation and fun throughout the weekend. The gong bath and massage were also wonderful additions. Thanks so much!

Testimonial by Georgina

Peaceful retreat. We took a Shinrin Yoku experience. Driving up through the countryside was a treat in itself, upon arriving we were met by Tom who was immediately friendly and relaxed. Our party was just the two of us and our old dog, we spent hours immersed in the forest enjoying our surroundings led by Tom to quietly connect with nature, our day was dry and sunny but would have been equally as enjoyable in the rain. We came away thoroughly relaxed. Friends asked us why were we paying for a walk in the woods when this can be done for free, to them I say you can walk for free, but this wasn't a walk in the woods it was a Shinrin Yoku experience with a guide knowledgeable and insightful, worth every penny.

Testimonial by Melaine

My visit to Hill Farm couldn’t have come at a better time. I arrived feeling slightly frazzled and very tired and left feeling calm and energised to continue doing my job and caring for my family AND myself. Highly recommended!

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!
