Sam & Imogen
Holwell is a serene farmstead steeped in history and character. There is peaceful accommodation in the main farmhouse with guest living and dining areas, a Yoga centre in a converted eco barn, holistic therapy rooms, arts and creative workshop space, music jamming area, five acres of wild and wonderful grounds to explore, a big organic vegetable garden and our very own stone circle! We have six beautiful en-suite rooms each with their own character and charm. Welcome!
Hello! We are Imogen and Sam, and we run the Yoga retreat and B&B together. We like to live a conscious life, working hard, growing food and practising yoga. We take great pleasure in growing and cooking delicious healthy food and Imogen makes organic skincare. We host and run the retreat using life skills we naturally love to engage with. Imogen is our main Yoga teacher and therapist, offering massage, reflexology, reiki and holistic beauty. She teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa and Soma Yoga and was voted best Yoga teacher in Devon 2019. Sam is the 'manpower' behind the space, keeping everything working and looking great whilst cooking up the deliciousness in the kitchen. We are passionate about health and consider ourselves a place of wellness! We have created this space to offer guests a thoroughly peaceful and restorative stay, away from busy life, and closer to nature and the relaxed simplicity that comes with it. Breakfast is a refined menu of our favourite healthy dishes. We offer Yoga and meditation sessions throughout the week and top quality holistic massage and therapies for you to book when you fancy.
