Testimonial from Yoga Retreat at Monkton Wyld Court, 2018

“I’ve been doing yoga now for nearly 2 years I think, and hadn’t appreciated what a hold it would take on me. When the opportunity to go on a yoga retreat came along I was really unsure of what to expect and whether I would enjoy it. But, it was amazing! The weekend was full of opportunity to relax and restore in a stunning location with some fabulous people. I have come away from the weekend with some new friends and an even greater love of yoga. I can’t wait for the next one!” – Tanya Roberts

Getting there

Road from Axminster(4.5 miles)

The nearest train station is Axminster (4 ½ miles away) and the closest bus stop (on X31 or 31 bus between Axminster and Bridport via Lyme Regis) is at Hunter’s Lodge in Raymond’s Hill (2 miles away). Taxis from Axminster should be booked in advance (about £20). Lifts are occasionally available upon request from the B&B (£10), please ask for details. If you are planning to drive here, we are about a mile off the A35, but ensure that you follow the turning to Monkton Wyld, not Monkton Wyld Farm.
