We’ve teamed up with The Outdoors Group to offer one Devon Life reader the chance to join a four-day retreat with a few added extras, worth over £500.

For over ten years The Outdoors Group has been helping children and young people to get back to nature through forest schools, special schools, toddler and holiday clubs. Now it’s the turn of the adults!  

With an increased focus on health and wellbeing, retreats have become a useful way of taking time out and switching off from the stresses of the modern world. The Outdoors Retreat is a yoga, nature and mindfulness retreat to help you reconnect with nature and yourself. It takes place at the serene Bala Brook Retreat Centre in South Brent. 

The Nourish in Nature Retreat runs from Friday, September 23 to Monday, September 26. This weekend falls near the autumn equinox so focus will be on transition and transformation. From daily yoga, nourishing food and mindfulness workshops to sumptuous surroundings and wanders in nature, it’s your time to retreat, recharge, and reconnect to the world in a more balanced, purposeful way.
