Lopwell SUP and Yoga Retreat



Spend the weekend off the beaten track/water! A fully catered weekend of yoga, relaxation and Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) coaching, guiding and general adventures at the secluded Lopwell Barn. With direct access to the river Tavy for perfect SUP conditions and journeys, we will also explore the beautiful surroundings including the nearby Dartmoor National Park when the tide is out.

This weekend is perfect for complete SUP beginners through to experts with individually tailored sessions and the perfect blend of adventure and relaxation to suit you!


Fri 11th- Sun 13th September

What to bring

We provide all equipment you'll need. Just make sure you bring appropriate clothing and a sleeping bag. Appropriate clothing as follows:

  1. Clothes to wear out on the water (e.g. board shorts/swimming gear and t-shirt)
  2. Waterproof top
  3. Warm fleece / jacket for evenings by the fire
  4. Outdoor trainers / shoes / boots for climbing (if you have them)
  5. Please let us know if there are any questions. We'd be happy to help.



Start time: 18:00

Arrive and settle in to Lopwell Barn bunkhouse. If there's time you can jump on the water for a sunset paddle. We will have exclusive use of the bunkhouse with excellent facilities. Spend the evening around the fire pit, planning the weekend’s activities, getting to know your guides and others and relaxing. Arrival time is flexible to accommodate for travel times. If you're escaping from London, jump on a direct train to Plymouth. We can arrange pick-up if you contact us in advance.


After a hearty breakfast enjoy early morning meditation as the tide rises before taking to the river to begin the adventure. Starting with a SUP coaching session, and using your developed skills and safety knowledge, enjoy the stunning trip up the Tavy on an interesting and fun journey. Depending on conditions we can stop at The Plough in Bere Ferres for an inviting refreshment. Once back at the Barn there is time to relax before an evening session of yoga on the grass before a delicious BBQ around the firepit.


A pilates session starts the day to refresh and invigorate again on the lawn overlooking the river. After breakfast we will head out onto the water for a secluded and unique SUP journey. There is time to practice some Sun Salutations on the boards or some fun and games. This is a remote section of river with chances to spot otters, seals and kingfishers. We will return to the barn around lunchtime leaving those who have travelled from further afield time to pack up and others an opportunity to relax and reflect on a wonderful weekend.
