Pennard House

Having been in the same family since the 1800s, Pennard House has retained a homely atmosphere, where guests can join the family, for a cup of refreshing green tea, around the kitchen table. Recognising the benefits and importance of using local, organic produce, the home-cooked meals at Pennard House are sourced from nearby farms, emphasising the natural quality of this particular yoga retreat. The food is gently detoxing, it’s all vegetarian, made without sugar or dairy products, and low in wheat and gluten. Pennard House offers a retreat to nature, stripping back the demands and pressure of modern life, allowing guests to unwind and reclaim a renewed sense of self. Health and Wellbeing Travel Trends Travel trends for 2015 tell us that wellbeing and fitness retreats will continue to gain momentum, with celebrities and the public alike sharing their fitness goals and engaging with healthier lifestyle choices on a variety of platforms. ‘Detox’ remains a buzz-word, with sugar-free, wheat-free diets gaining increasing popularity among celebrities and food-writers.
