Our most popular retreat that we run in stunning Mawgan Porth on the North Cornwall coast in both June and September.
So why is this so popular and sell out as soon as we launch...?
We thought we'd share a little more about what we get up to and what our repeat customers say that keeps them coming back every year! We LOVE you guys... you are the reason we keep doing what we do!!
"I have been on a number of weekends away in Cornwall now with Wild & Free Adventures and would absolutely, unreservedly recommend them! Amanda, Joe and their team really go out of their way to make sure each and every retreat guest has a wonderful time. The yoga is a lovely mix of relaxing and energising, which is just what you need alongside the surfing. The surf instructors are always so encouraging and full of tips and tricks to help you get the most from the surf sessions whatever the weather or wave conditions. The food is amazing - it really sets you up to get the most out of the weekend away and sends you away inspired to be more adventurous with vegetarian meals. A wonderful break for mind and body and I can't wait to get back on the next adventure!"

"Had a fantastic time at a Wild & Free Yoga & Surfing retreat in Mawgan Porth last week. It was a wonderful uplifting treat, I can’t recommend it enough. Amanda and Joe are the perfect hosts, so friendly and encouraging. They are very well organised so everything runs very smoothly, they have clearly planned it all so well. It was all perfect, the yoga, the yurts, the food and the surfing lessons… can’t wait to go back! Thank you!"

"These guys do epic surf & yoga retreats both in Cornwall & abroad…they always go the extra mile to make sure you are having the best time & I’ve come away having made fab friends each time…their retreats have become a yearly staple for me now 😁😁"
Sept 2021 - Jane R (another Wild & Free yearly customer)
"Love everything about Wild & Free! The Cornwall retreats are just amazing. Highly recommend as a treat for yourself or with friends. Fun, surfing for all levels, yoga, great food, lovely people, all in an amazing place! And Amanda’s a fantastic yoga teacher. After three online classes a week for two years, I still learn something new every week! She is super positive, the sessions are inclusive and fun, and joining online at home is so easy. And it's sociable too with a lovely group of regulars and new classmates to chat to!"

Where do you stay?
This year in April 2022 our Yurt village had a revamp and now even more luxurious (if they weren't gorgeous enough before!) with underfloor heating, on top of the comfortable beds, all luxury mod cons like wifi and log burner to drift off to after the adventures of the day...
Our Luxury Yurt Village is a 3 minute walk to the beach we surf on and the village of Mawgan Porth. Set back and tucked away in a tranquil spot, where you could be 'anywhere'...
Whether you want to have a private yurt all to yourself or share with 3 others, each yurt is spacious, full of charm and a great place to drift off to sleep. As well as the yurts we have a whole site dedicated to Wild & Free Adventures, with it's own hot tub, fire pit, lots of space to chill out, soak up the sun, read and enjoy!
Where do we do Yoga?
We have a luxury of a variety of spaces but if the tides are right and its quiet we love to do our yoga on the beach... not better way to connect to the ocean and find our flow...
But also we have out lovely Yoga Yurt which is a magical space to relax in and deepen your Yin and Restorative practices in the evenings...
Spoilt for choice, with two other locations, one in a secret little hide away amongst the trees and open blue skies, and also just around the Yurt Village - where we often kick off our welcome yoga with a 'stretch' to unwind and ground after a long journey here.
What do we eat...?
Really good food thats what!
Thanks to our amazing and passionate private chefs who cater for you on our retreats. Here's just some of the lovely dishes they prepare, full of colour, goodness and they'll leave you feeling inspired about what you put in your body!
Vegan and Vegetarian meals with surfing and yoga in mind... so you leave nourished from the inside out!
What's a typical day look like?
We do a welcome yoga stretch on arrival and once everyones settled into their yurts, we sit down together to enjoy welcome cocktails and meal al fresco!
Each day we do morning and evening yoga with a surf lesson in the morning or afternoon (dependant on best wave conditions) and on the final day a Yoga Workshop (which varies i.e Sound Bath or Empowerment Workshop). Each day looks a bit like below and then we finish up the retreat on departure day with a lovely revitalising yoga session and breakfast 'to go'... so you are ready for your journeys home... x
07.30 - 08.45 Revitalising Morning Yoga
09.00 - 09.45 Yummy Breakfast
10:30 - 12.30 Surf Lesson (2hrs)
13:00 - 13.30 Surf Analysis
13:30 - 14.30 Nutritious Lunch

17.30 - 19.00 Yin & Restore Yoga - “To nourish the mind, body and soul”
19.30 - 20.30 Delicious Dinner... followed by 'marshmallows' by the fire pit
So if you fancy joining us this September or next year in June or September we would love to hear from you!
No need to have had any yoga or surfing experience we simply ask for a "open heart and sense of adventure..." and we take care of the rest! You come away a surfer, yogi or just having had a great adventure. You will leave feeling nourishing from the inside out, wild and free and with some wonderful friends.
