Natalie, Lesley, Steve
Sust! are extremely excited to offer this action-packed, healthy weekend break at one of the most wonderful times of the year in North Devon.
This powerful mini-break is an opportunity to learn and experience first-hand, the power of nutrient-dense, protein-packed food combined with effective and fun resistance training, hiking, yoga and cold water therapy. Targeted nutrition talks and demonstrations focus on the science of optimising protein and nutrients from food, and impart practical tips and tools to take home.
Following the Fit, Flow, Fuel structure offered at Sust!, this 3-night retreat includes an energising mix of hiking, fun fitness classes, yoga, pilates, restorative yoga, nutrition talks and cold water therapy.
April is the PERFECT time to gift yourself a mini health reboot and springboard yourself into the Summer months the SUST! way.
The beautiful hiking trails within Exmoor National Park are spectacular at any time of the year , but especially breath-taking in the spring when the stunning scenery and fresh air will leave you invigorated and energised. 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 28th April to Monday 1st May. 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.

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.
Steve is a chef and the owner of Woodlands Guesthouse. 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.
