Isle of Wight Retreats & Events

Here at Godshill Park Farm we host yoga, pilates and energy medicine retreats, sewing weekends plus Dementia Adventures. We will provide an Isle of Wight retreat set in a warm, cosy and welcoming environment.

We work with a wonderful collection of inspirational leaders. Our secret to wellbeing? Good, honest, locally sourced food, creative and experienced teachers and some honest fresh air. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Godshill Park Farm is the perfect venue to unwind, relax and reconnect with your quieter nature.  Private treatments, massage, reiki and facials, can be provided by our therapist to complement your well-being experience during your retreat stay.

Each event host shapes a weekend differently, however, a typical Isle of Wight retreat starts on a Friday afternoon with welcome tea & cake, followed by an early evening session before supper. The quietness of the farm provides the perfect opportunity to maybe explore meditation in the mornings before breakfast or midmorning brunch. A walk up onto the downs or on the wild south-west beaches is often led in the afternoon.  There is always the option to extend your retreat and stay for an extra night or two on a bed and breakfast basis.

Transport between the farm from the passenger ferries in Ryde and West Cowes can be arranged.  For information on travel to the island click here.

Yoga Isle of Wight

We host yoga weekends throughout the year as guests discover that the farm’s stunning setting aids in creating an environment of calm, serenity and beauty. We specialise in cooking local foods and popular yoga teachers from London and the island host groups seeking an island retreat experience. A weekend is the great opportunity to deepen your understanding of yoga and to explore techniques and ideas that a normal class setting doesn’t give you time for. Set in the centre of the Isle of Wight we have great walks from the doorstep or some guests choose to unwind beside a log fire with a good book.

Emma Spencer-Goodier, an island yogini has been working with us for three years offering her retreats and we have now expanded to enjoy groups that come with Laura Gate-Eastley and Claire Saunders from London. All have great feedback about the space we have created here and the expertise of the top teachers who share the teachings of yoga.


It’s like stepping back in time 40 yrs – quite magical.

Mr. P. Knee

I can’t thank you enough for the yoga retreat over New Year…it was simply magical and very special. It was exactly what I was in need of, and I will remember it forever. Thank you, thank you!! Amazing start to the year.

Miss. S. Holderness

I came back so uplifted and inspired by your teachings. This weekend was absolutely perfect, you make everybody feel so welcome and at ease.

V. Alpe

Loved the farm, the peace and the quiet. The food was excellent and Emma, thanks for the yoga, you do have a great feel as to how far to push someone. It was just right!
