Creative Retreat



This September dive into this unique creative retreat amongst the alpacas of Burnt Fen. Gathered in the beautiful setting of a secluded private estate in the Broads National Park, you are encouraged to relax and dip into your creative side with no pressures or expectations.

Animals and creativity have long been recognised as beneficial to mental health and well being and our retreat embraces this understanding, creating a space for you to unwind and stretch out both physically and mentally.

The weekend allows you to savour the moment. Enjoy a programme of yoga that will make you feel both energised and relaxed as only yoga can. Amble through beautiful woodland with the gentle Burnt Fen alpacas as companions, sketch majestic ancient trees under the encouraging eye of our expert tutor and explore blending textures and colours in the traditional craft of weaving.

Oh, and if you’re brave enough, dive into wild swimming in the stunning private broad. Burnt Fen house is that rare blend of luxury and comfort where you will feel immediately at home - helped enormously by a delicious home cooked vegetarian menu, we believe in feeding the body and the mind!

This weekend is suitable for all levels of experience and ability and is designed for yoga lovers, art lovers, textile lovers, animal lovers, explorers, relaxation and fun!

I went on this alpaca retreat in September 2019 and it was an amazing experience. I had signed up mainly for the yoga (which was fantastic) but I loved every part of the weekend from the tree walk to the art, from the alpacas to the weaving. The house and the surrounding area are beautiful and the food over the weekend was incredible. It was a very thoughtfully designed programme of events that left me feeling happily tired and thoroughly relaxed. I would strongly recommend this retreat; it has left me with a host of happy memories.
