Sust! Health and Bounce Fit are teaming up to JUMPstart your summer with an invigorating 3-day healthy retreat break in North Devon.
Following the Fit, Flow, Fuel structure offered at Sust!, the daily programme includes a dynamic mix of fitness classes including mini trampolining, strength training, yoga, pilates, yin yoga, and cold water therapy. The summer is the most incredible time to visit North Devon and enjoy the specular hiking trails within Exmoor National Park. So buff up your hiking boots because we have some incredible hikes in store for you that take in the best of the South West Coast Path and National Trust hiking trails.
This retreat will take place at Woodlands Guesthouse from Friday 29th July to Monday 1st August. Woodlands is an imposing Victorian guesthouse overlooking the West Lyn Valley situated a short stroll away from the village of Lynton. Each room has an ensuite bathroom and provides a perfect, peaceful haven to retreat and relax.
