I'm not organising specific Pilates Retreats any more. Instead Lavender Barn is being rented on a holiday basis with Pilates and massage booked as requiored, depending on your holiday timetable.
Lavender Barn is somewhere where people ....
"Feel a sense of calm as soon as you drive through the gates".
Lavender Barn provides the perfect tranquil setting; in the middle of countryside yet within a mile of the sea. Located in quiet farmland, it is halfway between the ancient town of Helston and the delightful fishing port of Porthleven.
Lavender Barn is a converted Cornish barn and is only a few strides away from the Pilates Studio and massage treatment room; this is also a converted stone barn.
The cottage is furnished in a stylish and homely way enhancing your feeling of relaxation and comfort. There are two double bedrooms, which can be either twin beds or kingsize doubles.
Your Pilates classes take place in a state-of-the-art Studio.
The garden has quiet corners where you can relax.
We also have a secluded art studio so do bring your paints or just use it to have a quiet time with your book.
Food and Dining
While you are on the retreat you will have an evening meal with wine, cooked for you on the first and last day of your stay.
All breakfasts plus tea and coffee are provided.
We are happy to oblige with individual dietary needs.
You could further enhance your retreat by having a massage in Sarah's peaceful and cosy treatment room. If you don't normally have the time for massage then this is a perfect opportunity.
Sarah has over 30 years of experience in Massage, Sports Therapy and Pilates, having initially trained as a nurse. She has worked in many areas of health and fitness and with this knowledge she has a unique and caring approach to her massage and teaching.
Porthleven (1mile), Helston (1mile), Penrose Estate (½ mile), Helford Estuary (12 miles), St. Ives (14 miles), Falmouth (14miles), Penzance (14 miles).
This varies according to the time of year.
Lavender Barn is booked as a self-catering cottage then the Pilates and meals are an extra.
On my example there would be 11½ hours of Pilates tuition over the 4 days, which comes to £430. This is shared amongst the group.
Evening meal, breakfasts, tea and coffee, as described in the example, is £100 per person.
The average cost works out at £407/person in a group of 4 people.
