An active retreat in Lancashire has been named among 12 of the best in the UK in a list by The Guardian.

The Rewilding features in the list and its spring retreat is said to combine “nature and creativity”.

Introducing the list, The Guardian said: “These short breaks from the Inner Hebrides to Bodmin Moor offer the chance to relax and recalibrate amid beautiful natural landscapes”.

What did The Guardian say about The Rewilding?

The Guardian said: “Seasonal retreats take place on a 220-acre, partially rewilded family farm amid pasture, woodland and swimming ponds, overlooking the salt marshes of Morecambe Bay.

“The spring retreat, Awaken Your Senses, combines nature and creativity: there are clay and driftwood workshops, hedgerow foraging and sourdough baking, plus coastal walks, swimming and bonfires.

“The summer retreat (28-30 June) focuses on midsummer folklore, with barefoot walking and dancing round the maypole, while the autumn retreat (20-22 September) involves mushroom cultivation and handcrafting with leather.

“Guests stay in converted barns, cottages or cabins, eat communal meals, take part in daily meditation and alternate cold water therapy with dips in the wood-fired hot tub.”
