About Pauntley Court

Set in stunning countryside, about three hours from London and only one hour from Bristol and Birmingham, Pauntley Court offers a tranquil escape.

Steeped in history dating back to the 1300's, it is the birthplace of Dick Whittington and was home to Elinor Fettiplace. The house is full of character and offers luxury accommodation and exquisite gardens with far reaching views across the surrounding countryside.

Retreat programme

The first class will be on Friday evening, followed by a delicious dinner. Emma will then lead you through two classes on the Saturday, a more dynamic morning class to align to body and breath and an afternoon practice to delve deeper into the postures and relax and restore.

On Sunday there will be morning practices, breakfast and lunch and plenty of time in between for relaxation and walks.

Arrival time on Friday 7 February is from 4pm onwards. The first yoga session will be at 5.30pm. The weekend will finish on Sunday 9 February after lunch at 2pm.

Things to do

The surrounding area is perfect for a long country walk or if you fancy exploring further afield you can take a trip to Gloucester's historic cathedral and docks or add a day of walking in the Malvern Hills. There will be massages on offer in the free time and comfy sofas where you can curl up with a good book.

Accommodation & food

The luxurious rooms are spacious, light and offer an extremely comfortable haven to relax and rest in. All rooms are very well appointed and are either en-suite or have their own private bathroom. Two rooms share a bathroom.

Delicious healthy food will be served throughout the retreat. All meals will be vegetarian delights to nourish body and soul.

Client Reviews

I really loved the weekend. The house was beautiful: impressive yet relaxing, we were made to feel thoroughly at home, with deep sofas and huge open fires. It was encouraging to be just given the run of the house and grounds, just as if we really lived there! The yoga was amazing.
I have just spent the most magical weekend at Pauntley Court. I loved Emma's inspiring yoga sessions with energetic Vinyassa flows in the morning and more relaxing Yin yoga in the evening with plenty of soul cleansing meditation. The Yoga Nidra and Sound Bath were wonderful too. The food was delicious and all home cooked on site. There was plenty of time in between the yoga sessions to explore the grounds of Pauntley court or relax in the beautiful house. Felt very lucky and blessed to be surrounded by such a lovely group of like minded people and went home feeling totally chilled and relaxed. A very well organised retreat - would definitely recommend.
Emma was a fabulous teacher and created a lovely welcoming and inclusive atmosphere from the start. I am missing the yoga nidra now I’m back home! I would happily go back and join other retreats where Emma is teaching.
