Stay In Harmony With The Land - Cotna Eco Retreat

Cotna Eco Retreat is one of the best retreats in Cornwall for travellers wanting to live from the land in a beautiful yurt in the Roseland Peninsula. Situated in a charming green valley, Cotna Eco Retreat produces its own energy from wind and solar, so you know your stay is sustainable and low-impact. They offer three types of accommodation: a yurt for glamping, a unique shepherd’s hut or a straw bale barn. They also offer you vegetarian or vegan food hampers full of veggies for you to prepare, most of which have been produced on their land. You can learn to forage the local area, produce your own no-dig crops and how to make sourdough bread in a sustainable way.

Let Food Be The Medicine and Medicine Be The Food - Fat Hen Cookery School

The Fat Hen Cookery School is an immersive cookery school near Land’s End with a totally unique concept - forage what you cook!

At the heart of everything they do is a respect for the local environment (they know exactly when you can forage different things and when they’re in abundance), along with yummy food and sustainability. You can combine this amazing retreat with walks, water sports, cycling and any other way you’d like to enjoy the Cornish coastline. You can learn all about what’s edible and what's not, the best way to prepare the wild produce and what you can expect to find in your local area back home. BOOK HERE
