Lone Pine Retreats

Set beyond Exmoor, this expansive coast is majestic, so much so the poet Shelley called the area “England's Little Switzerland”. The deep and wooded valley surrounding us is one of the largest remaining areas of semi-natural ancient woodland in the South West. This is where the magic happens.

Combining over 25 years experience in the events industry, over 7 years residential hosting, and more than two  years of exploring all of the delights that Exmoor has to offer, our retreats embrace everything that makes this stunning part of the UK so special - the great outdoors, access to the coast, landscape art, wild swimming, wellness, fantastic local produce, the warmth of the community, and much, much more. 


Each restorative retreat is designed to give you the space to develop a skill or technique that is important to you, guided by an expert in the field.  Taking time for yourself, getting into a flow state, tantalizing all your senses, and being with like-minded people ... this unique experience is heightened by the setting, and our own unique application, we promise a fulfilling experience that will leave you wanting more.  

Hosted at the relaxing Seaview Villa, we take care of your every need, giving you an unforgettable boutique experience blending relaxation, art, nature, social and coastal charm.
