19th-22nd september 2019

At Fforest, we have always promoted "active relaxation" – clearing your mind through the challenge of learning new skills and the physical demands of a tough days play. We also understand the luxury of just doing nothing, quietly sitting on the deck, reading a book or simply day dreaming. The Glow x Rise Fierce Women’s Retreat will be the perfect combination of the two – physical challenge interspersed with deep relaxation and comfort.

We have partnered with Sophie Hellyer’s Rise Fierce to bring you morning vinyasa yoga before breakfast followed by wild swims, food foraging and coastal walks. In the afternoons there will be free time to go to the beach, go for walks, wild swims, try out the sauna or nap. We will also do a bit of give back to the local community with a beach clean. In the evenings there will be women’s circles and restorative yoga followed by nourishing vegetarian food and camp fire chats.

We are still tweaking the final schedule but there’ll definitely be wild swims, yoga, outdoor saunas, food foraging, coastal walks, and evening fireside chats…

Come alone or with a friend to enjoy the company and comfort of being a part of this small and intimate gathering. Hosted in the peaceful surroundings of our coastal site at Penbryn. Accommodation is in private or shared rooms in Ty Manorafon (the main house), Cabins or Domes.



What you’ll be eating

We take pride in our food. We grow many of our own salads and greens. We are blessed with fantastic local produce on our doorstep. That makes it easy to keep it simple, seasonal, local and delicious. Everything will be healthy & nourishing freshly prepared vegetarian dishes from seasonal produce.

The stay includes fruit & snacks, 3 nourishing DIY breakfasts of granola, eggs, toast and jams, 2 light lunches, 3 suppers & a brunch before we say our goodbyes. Please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements or allergies when booking so that we can take these into consideration when planning the menus.

What to Bring

Warm and waterproof clothes and boots as we will be outside enjoying mother nature a lot of the time. Warm snuggly woollies to wrap and cosy up in. A swimming costume if you want to brave a dip in the sea or river or jump in the sauna.

Remember to pack a bottle of wine or two if you would like to relax on the sofa with a drink in the evening or have a glass with dinner.

Where you'll be staying

There is one private, en-suite double bedroom and two private double bedrooms with use of a shared bathroom.

All bedding & towels are provided including our own fforest wool blankets.


Our cosy cabins are light, warm and comfortable. They are grouped together in their own cluster with mature landscaping and terraces.

Our Domes have solid wood floors, wood-burning stove, bespoke furnishings and views from a giant bay window.
They have a king size bed with feather soft bedding.
The short walk to the shower/toilet block is more than made up for by the feeling of privacy and tranquility you experience in your own little corner of our camp.
