Over May Bank Holiday Weekend the Urban-Recovery team will once again be hosting another incredible 3 day ocean wellness retreat in the glorious Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Wales. The trip combines professional paddleboard coaching with yurt camping, healthy, nutritional food from our own private chef and a guided coastal foraging. experience from a local expert!
Newgale is a cute little coastal village located inside the protected Pembrokeshire National Park. The coastline is an unspoilt, outdoor playground with many secluded bays set in deep, cliff-lined coves which come to life with wildlife in the springtime.
Newgale provides the ideal location for paddlesurfing. There is always plenty of space on the long, two mile stretch of flat sand and whilst the Atlantic Ocean rollers ensure some exciting surf, it is a safe beach for those still learning!
During the retreat we all sleep in a couple of cosy yurts. The campsite is directly behind the beach and offers quality shower & toilet facilities. It’s a family friendly campsite so everyone goes to bed at a sensible time ready to check the surf in the morning!
The food we provide on this retreat is all locally sourced from organic farmers. Our private nutritional chef creates 3 delicious meals each day full of energy and flavour! We also provide healthy snacks and, super food juices and plenty of drinking water.
One of the highlights of this retreat is the guided foraging experience on the final day. We always team up with a local expert who picks out all the plants and seaweeds that can be eaten raw or cooked. It really is incredible just how much you can eat once you know where to look! We always prepare a tasty meal with all the ingredients we find and the teacher provides recipe ideas for future use!
TIME IN NATURE
An important element of Urban-Recovery holidays is immersion in abundant natural environments. We always schedule time to walk, swim or sit in nature so you can breath in all the goodness. We always encourage our guests to leave their phones and other electrical devices at the campsite so they can be in the moment!
FLAT WATER ADVENTURES
If the swell doesn’t arrive and the ocean remains flat then don’t worry there are some incredible tours we can enjoy. The Pembrokeshire coast offers secluded bays, caves, natural harbours and crystal clear water so you can see the marine life below!
Urban-Recovery retreats always attract lovely, likeminded people who enjoy being outdoors and learning new skills.
We always try to minimise our environmental impact during the retreats and often also remove other peoples litter too!
All our clients receive a Welada wellness gift of natural, toxic free skin care which is marine life friendly!
