Sust! are thrilled to offer our signature ‘Fit, Flow Fuel’ healthy weekend retreat break in North Devon.
Following the Fit, Flow, Fuel structure offered at Sust! Health, the daily programme includes an energising mix of fitness classes including resistance band training, yoga, pilates, restorative yoga, and cold water therapy. This time of year is EXACTLY when a health boost is in order!! February is the perfect time to SHAKE OFF THOSE WINTER BLUES and JUMP START your energy!
We can’t promise you warm and sunny weather but we CAN promise you a brilliantly fun and memorable three-night health retreat break in North Devon guaranteed to leave you boosted and buzzing.
The specular hiking trails within Exmoor National Park are something to behold at this time of year. The breathtaking scenery and fresh air will blow away those winter cobwebs and leave you invigorated and energised. So dust off 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. Hikes cater for all levels.
This retreat will take place at Woodlands Guesthouse from Friday 24th February to Monday 27th February. 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.
Natalie is a yoga, pilates, and fitness instructor based in North Devon and the owner and founder of Sust! Health Retreats. She has enjoyed an extensive career in the health retreat industry both as a teacher and manager and she is dedicated to motivate, inspire, and educate people through unique and exceptional health retreat programmes based within Exmoor National Park.
Natalie will be sharing her passion for movement and nutrition in this action-packed, wellness retreat. Nutrition talks will focus on weight loss, gut health, and optimising nutrition through nutrient-dense, traditional foods.
Lesley is a cold-water-immersion advocate and educator! Her passion for cold water dipping has lead her to research deeply into the topic and she enjoys sharing this knowledge and personally coaching small groups in and around Exmoor National Park at her favourite wild swim spots. Lesley is also a Nordic Walking instructor, Massage Therapist, Personal Trainer, and the owner of Woodlands Guesthouse (and Natalie’s mum!!) 🙂
Steve is a chef and the owner of Woodlands Guesthouse (and Natalie’s dad). You will find him beavering away in the kitchen for days prior to the retreat simmering bone broth, slow-cooking stews and soups, dehydrating nuts, seeds and crackers, and sourcing the very best produce from UK farms that form the basis of the SUST! food ethos.
Prepare to have your socks blown off with a nutrient-packed, seasonal menu showcasing local Devon produce! The Sust! menu proudly provides optimal dietary protein and nutrients from ethically sourced animal products, but plant-based eaters will be not be disappointed as our Vegetarian menu is equally satisfying and delicious. Informative nutritional talks and practical demonstrations impart simple, take-home tips and knowledge that you can implement right away at home to help you adopt the SUST! diet and lifestyle principles.
Travel direct in your own car and park onsite, or if you prefer to take the train, Woodlands Guesthouse is a 40 minute taxi ride from Barnstaple Station, or 75 minute taxi ride from Tiverton Parkway. We do our best to connect guests travelling by train to facilitate taxi-sharing.
