Heather Topped Hills and Wooded Valleys:  Exmoor

Minehead YHA, Combe Lodge, Manor Road, Woodcombe, Minehead TA24 6EW

Come and blow away the winter with a couple of full days walking, venturing into the mysterious Exmoor Forests, over heather tipped moorland, and maybe catching a glimpse of wild red deer or Exmoor ponies. We hope to enjoy some sweeping sea views from the coastal path. Minehead is the start point of the South West Coast Path.

Being Rooted in the Land

At Cae Mabon, Snowdonia

Monday 12th – Sunday 18th August 2019

We will have a week of living close to each other and capturing the meaning of GreenSpirit: living in a loving consciousness of the interconnected world. We enjoy being in and celebrating our natural surroundings together, we will go walking, sing and tell stories around the fire in the round house and relax in the hot tub under the oak trees and stars. This holiday is like a retreat from our busy lives and is always nurturing. People who attend are invited to bring something they can share, like a workshop, stories, songs, favourite recipes, musical instruments… Ideally, contributions should be something to do with the theme of the week which is: Being Rooted in the Land.

The Wild Week takes place at Cae Mabon in Snowdonia. Cae Mabon is set in natural woodland by a rushing river, near a deep lake, at the foot of high mountains and almost within sight of the sea. A family of beautiful, natural, earthy structures provide appealing spaces for groups to sleep, meet, retreat, work and play.

We cook our meals together and can therefore cater for any kind of diet, and the cost of the retreat will be £265 each. Due to the increasing popularity of the Wild Week, you are advised to book early to secure your place and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis on receipt of £265. In any event, you need to pay in full by July 1st  until which time we can make full refunds but after that time refunds will only be given if a replacement can be found. For more information see the Cae Mabon website at

To enquire or to book, contact Hilary Norton t: 020 8470 3365 e: hnorton(at), 33 Park Road, Stratford, London. E15 3QP.

Note: The Wild Week is communal, and it relies on everyone participating and offering each other mutual support. The accommodation is shared and in eco-structures with basic bedding. The Wild Week takes place in a wild, wooded, and rocky landscape with considerable inclines and away from major medical facilities. Therefore, the week is not suitable for all. If you have any medical or mobility issues, you must declare these in advance and further details will be requested before your booking can be accepted. If you book for this event, you acknowledge that you accept responsibility for yourself, your own well-being and personal care and that you have considered the issues carefully.
