Wild Rest Retreat

If we surrendered to Earth's intelligence,
we could rise up rooted, like trees.

~ Rainer Maria Rilkes  

When the months and seasons change this Autumn, join us as we slow down, pause and reflect.

Nestled in the peaceful Welsh village of Llanfair Talhaiarn, a few miles from the North Wales coastline, we are retreating to a beautiful, renovated farm and cottage surrounded by wild land.

For two nights over the second weekend in November, we're holding space for people who feel called to gather, relax, and find tranquility within, honouring the practice of deep rest.

We'll be nurtured by the natural environment, learn new and practical ways to support our health and wellbeing, share hearty, homecooked meals, and unplug from the demands of our day-to-day roles and devices.

Retreat to a place where there will be no rush, only invitations to experience the world from a peaceful, and sometimes playful perspective as we match our heartbeat with the rhythm of nature.


Rise gently, followed
by chanting practices

Free time to read, sleep, wander and explore

Yoga classes guided by experienced teachers

Fron Goch Farm,

Our rural home for the weekend is near to the small market town of Abergele. It's a beautiful, renovated family-owned farm and cottage surrounded by Welsh countryside, less than 1 hour 30 mins from both Macclesfield and Northwich.

Nothing to book right now. Check back soon.

"A wonderful, uplifting and experiential weekend. This was my first time on a retreat and I felt so comfortable and welcome. I loved the feeling of contentedness that came from it, along with the ability to take time for myself and reconnect with my wild side. The food sang to my soul and made it feel like home!"

Wild Rest, guided by Rachel and Kelly

Your retreat leaders, Rachel @riseandwild and Kelly @wildappleyoga met on a relaxation retreat in North Yorkshire five years ago and at the end of the weekend, half-jokingly spoke about one day guiding a retreat together. That dream took root as their friendship grew, along with shared loves of food, wild landscapes and mindful movement. In 2019, they embarked on their 18-month yoga teacher training journey together and have supported one another since sharing classes, guiding retreats and experiences at Ashrams, community gatherings & workshops across the UK.

"It’s an honour to collaborate and share our values for accessible teachings and nutritious food,
whilst enabling time to rest and connect with a small community".
