Our beautifully positioned guesthouse, Mincarlo, sits right on the waterfront overlooking the harbour and out to the West, with comfortable sea-view rooms. This revitalising break is open to just 10 people and features guided walks with stunning views, restorative & wild yoga sessions, trail runs, invigorating dips in the sea, wonderful food and local gin!
Arrive at Mincarlo and head out for an orientation walk before a pre-dinner yoga session, evening meal and fire pit. On our first morning, after breakfast, we’ll take a trail run around the coast of St. Mary’s, incorporating a few fun circuits and a fantastic rope swing almost over the water’s edge. After a healthy lunch back at Mincarlo we’ll have a refreshing dip in the sea, a restorative yoga session and a delicious evening dinner.
Day 2 brings an early walk in darkness to the Druid’s Chair to watch the sun rise and enjoy some quiet meditation. After a late breakfast, we’ll take a boat to an off-island for some wild yoga, an explore and an alfresco picnic (or pub lunch, as weather dictates) before returning to St. Mary’s for a dip in the sea or some free time. Our final dinner will include a special Scilly gin-tasting.
On the last morning we’ll have an invigorating pre-breakfast dip and a good yomp around the coastline of Peninnis Head (and a clamber on the rocks) – before our retreat guests collect goody bags and head home or off to lunch at their leisure.
Prices start at £495 per person based on two people sharing (depending on room choice). Our Re-boot and Revitalising Break includes accommodation (with en-suite shower room) at Mincarlo, all meals (from evening of arrival to morning of departure) including the alfresco picnic or one main course and drink at the pub; gin tasting and all the hosted activities. Flights and transfers are not included.

…best of all was Bryony and the wonderful yoga and walks. Her expertise in yoga and knowledge of the islands was incredible. Bryony really made the holiday for me, she was so welcoming and so confident and friendly, I just relaxed into the whole lovely experience from the moment I arrived.
