We have two exceptional guided hikes planned for the weekend that promise to leave you invigorated and buzzing with energy!

Both a shorter and a longer hike option are available, accommodating varying fitness levels. These hikes typically span 3-4 hours and cover distances ranging from 4-8 miles, depending on the chosen option.

The North Devon Coast is a sanctuary for hiking enthusiasts and Nature lovers at any time of the year, but the season of Autumn showcases the magic of Exmoor National Park in an extraordinary manner, providing an awe-inspiring setting for this rejuvenating getaway.

The morning flow yoga will be sure to awaken and strengthen the body, ignite your core, and cultivate a sense of grounding and balance.

The evening restorativyoga will gently stretch the body, soothe your mind, and bestow a deep sense of tranquility and serenity.

Enjoy a special sound bath using the Tibetan bowls and experience a haven of relaxation where the mind can unwind and the body can heal.

This is why you will enjoy classic foods like broths and stews, alongside refreshing vegetable juices, vibrant smoothies bursting with nutrients, and guilt-free dessert creations.

We carefully select the finest produce from UK farms, all of which form the core of the SUST! food philosophy.

For those who prefer plant-based options, rest assured that our meals burst with vibrant plant-based ingredients, and our Vegetarian and Vegan menu is satisfying and delicious.
