Back to Nature Retreats
The Antidote to Stressed Lifestyles
Take time to slow right down into the moment, coming back to your self in mind and body.
It’s about getting back to your authentic self, minus distractions like technology, work, media, stress & artificial environments.
You will emerge from Crann Og reconnected, restored and relaxed.
Your shoulders will drop, your smile broaden and you will sleep deeper.
“Thank you all so much for the most nourishing retreat for the soul. If I was to think of a retreat that fitted in all the treasured activities I love, this was it for sure.”

Thank you all so much for the most nourishing retreat for the soul. If I was to think of a retreat that fitted in all the treasured activities I love, this was it for sure. Added to that your warmth, wisdom, intuitiveness and nurturing ways made this weekend so pleasurable, rewarding and one I’ll cherish and hold dear in my heart. So much gratitude to you both. Thank you

Thank you for your hospitality, for your kindness, for sharing your wisdom, for caring, thank you for opening you home, hearts and minds. It has been a truly wonderful retreat, thank you for the delicious meals. The kitchen team are amazing!

It was the most incredible weekend – the farm and surroundings are beautiful, the welcome is warm, the food is delicious. I left feeling like a weight had been lifted, and would recommend the retreat to anyone who was open to a new experience, to friendship and reflection and connecting to the world around them. The farm would be a lovely place to be and to stay even without the retreat aspect. Thank you again!

Every email contact was a joy. When I was shown the venue I felt so welcomed. The tent has been a palace, like every place on this land it carries the loving energy of committed people with a strong vision and doing their labour from the heart. There could not have been a better place for this.
