What to bring

Head Torch

This is a vital item to bring as there is no light pollution on site and it can get very dark walking back to the huts. The bonus of this are the starry nights!

Battery pack for charging phone

This is a very handy item as even though there are plug sockets in the toilet/shower block, having a battery pack means you can charge whenever you like.

Strong walking boots

We have a stunning walk to our yoga venue that requires sturdy footwear.
