Escape to the wild beauty of the Welsh countryside for a weekend of yoga, meditation and reconnection. Enjoy the quintessential charm of Tall John's House; an elegant Georgian country residence nestled in the rolling hills of the Brecon National Park, just one and a half hours drive from Bristol and close to two railways stations: Abergavenny and Hereford.

With a stunning vaulted barn warmed by underfloor heating and radiant natural light you will be able to experience morning and evening yoga consisting of vinyasa flow, yin yoga and meditation suitable for all levels.  

Ken, the wonderful resident house chef will create delicious vegetarian suppers (dietaries can easily be accommodated), and there is the option to enjoy the scenery up close with a walk around the nearby lake followed by a pub lunch on Saturday.  Whether you want to relax and embrace the quiet with a good book or to reconnect with friends you'll find Tall John's offers plenty of space to cosy up on a  sofa and warm your toes by the roaring fires.  There will also be the option to pre-book a relaxing massage or holistic treatment from a local therapist.
