What a fantastic place. I visited Yeotown with a group of work colleagues for a 4 day team building retreat and I have returned home as a new person. This retreat has given me more energy and reminded me how much I enjoy sport / outdoor activities. Everything at Yeotown is engineered to give each and every guest the best possible experience, from the relaxing sauna to the rustic country retreat and comfortable accommodation.
We partook in several activities including hiking and cycling along the beautiful Devon countryside with breathtaking views. We also had the opportunity to surf at Croyde with Lyndon Wakes Surf School at Baggy Point which has re-awakened my childhood passion for the sport. Davie and Simon were great leaders who kept the group on track and motivated through the various activities.
Yoga was a great end to each day, where we experienced invigorating and uplifting flow-yoga with Mercedes Ngoh. Mercedes was a great teacher and it is easy to see why her classes are so popular both at Yeotown and in London where she also teaches.
Julia the chef was brilliant. I have quite a few food intolerances and she made me feel completely at ease, catering for my additional needs and I didn't feel left out at all.
Comfortable accommodation, tasty food, great activities, friendly staff and much more. I couldn't have had a better experience at Yeotown, I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to stay there.
