Your daily yoga practice will be a combination of morning, dynamic yoga, led by Nigel, and a more reflective and restorative session in the afternoon, taught by Tara.
Tara will also lead the family yoga session - she even encourages the children to occasionally take the lead by adjusting their parent's poses, which makes for great fun and a unique bonding experience.

One afternoon there will be an optional outing (arranged dependent on numbers).
There are plenty of opportunities to surf on any one of North Devon/Cornwall's spectacular beaches.
The nearby picturesque village of Clovelly is well worth a visit - hugging the cliff, it's cobbled streets, pretty cottages and lovely gardens tumble down to the stunning harbour. Cream teas, beach walks and magical views.

Loveland is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, so lots of lovely walks straight from the site. There is also cycling, sea kayaking and horse riding nearby too.

On a clear night, the spectacle of the clear night sky is the perfect end to a rejuvenating day of yoga and quality family time.


FOOD

Light Breakfast will consist of fresh juices, cereal, fruit, toast, teas and coffees.

Buffet brunch will include eggs, pancakes, yoghurts, salads, cheese, breads, hummus etc.

Supper will vary each evening.  

This will include a pizza night (there is a pizza oven on site), bbq night & tagine night.

One evening mid week, we plan to book supper at 'Pattards Kitchen’ - A lovely restaurant converted from an original milking parlour within walking distance. They offer locally sourced produce in a stylish relaxed family friendly space.

For those families staying in the pods, you have your own kitchen to supplement meals if needed. Tipis have a shared kitchen.


CHILDREN'S ACTIVITIES

We offer up to 4 hours childfree yoga per day. Meanwhile, your children will be cared for and kept busy and happy.
Your child will be cared for while you do 2 sessions of yoga, morning and afternoon.
Our child carer, Lauren Green, is a qualified primary school teacher. She brings fun, warmth and inventiveness to your child's activity time during your yoga practice.
Together with another local, qualified carer, they run activities such as arts and crafts, multi-sports, team games, cooking, performance skills, nature trails and a visit to the Loveland Farm animals. We will also be offering a bush craft session during the week.

Childcare is provided for all children over 2 years of age during adults yoga practice.
Children under 2 years old are very welcome on the retreat - ideally with another adult/family member from your group taking charge of them at all times. However, additional childcare for children of any age can be arranged with the Roro Retreats team at an extra charge.


RAINY DAYS

Activities will be arranged in the newly built, comfy Loveland Barn.


WHAT TO BRING

We advise you to bring walking boots, wetsuits (if you have them), swimming towels, layers, a light rain coat, hot water bottle, slippers, wellies, torch.

All pods and tipis have electricity, wifi connection and wood burners.
