About 42 Acres

A magical weekend of yoga and an opportunity to revitalise and enjoy reconnecting with self and others in the luxurious setting of the '42 Acres' retreat space in Frome, Somerset.

42 Acres is beautiful retreat space, encircled by seven hundred acres of ancient forest. Sustainability and comfort are at the forefront of the 42 Acres vision with reclaimed materials used to fit-out the interiors of the property. All of the power is renewable and self-generated through biomass and solar.

The daily programme

Flowing, traditional hatha yoga sessions will naturally open the heart and nurture you to a space of surrender and stillness. A typical class will include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), hands-on adjustments, guided relaxation, chanting and a taste of philosophy. Typically each class will last for 2 hours.

The days will begin with silent meditation, pranayama and a little mantra chanting. This will be followed by the morning yoga class. We then have breakfast followed by free time, massages and then the afternoon yoga practice.

In the evenings there will be other activities that may include meditation, inspiring cinema and chanting.

Delicious organic food will be served throughout the retreat. All meals are vegetarian.

Accommodation

Accommodation options range from dormitories to twins and single rooms (en-suite options are available) with luxury linen and towels provided. The centre has several communal spaces including a library and a meeting and reading space.

Comments

42 Acres is a truly magical retreat: a sacred space of calm and peacefulness set in the restorative nature of Somerset...
42 Acres is a magical haven. The unintrusively cool interior design is in a league of its own and absolutely bang up to date, and yet, this beautiful home still retains its connection to the past. The setting is 42 acres of glorious nature, gorgeous English farmland, bounded by ancient meadows and forests. I experienced one of the most magical weekends at 42 acres and this place will forever be in my heart. I can't recommend it enough.
The house is beautifully appointed and has very comfortable luxurious rooms, the perfect place to get away from the stresses of everyday life and find some well needed peace. I will definitely be going back soon.
I am still feeling the positive effects from my break. The location was beautiful, the food fantastic, the people lovely and Dory, by far, is the best teacher I have had in 18 years...
I really enjoyed it all and found the space and quiet I needed ! Doing so much yoga was great! You are both so gifted at facilitating...so nurturing and calm. A joy!
‘I cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful retreat at 42 Acres, I had such a lovely, peaceful time. Everything was absolutely wonderful: the food, the location, the classes, the massages and the people. I left feeling thoroughly rejuvenated and really inspired to explore yoga more.’
