The Whole Heart of a Woman Weekend

Imagine you are sat in a beautifully restored Grade II listed country house, in the heart of Shropshire, overlooking the River Severn.  You have escaped for a romantic valentines weekend away… for yourself!  

Join a group of women for yoga, meditation, nature, laughter and love.  We will be connecting with our own complete selves, for inner love and to empower our spirits in a safe and supportive environment.  You will leave our two days together feeling uplifted and loved.

Why should you join us?

Wouldn’t it be energizing to meet new people, who value you as a woman regardless of your relationship status?

Get ready to embrace yourself!  We will spend time each day with positive uplifting exercises and practices that reaffirm how important it is to honour and follow our instinct, to live a guilt free life of creativity and love.

How would it feel…

  • to really understand and OWN your value?
  • to exercise your power in your decision making and to feel confident when asserting yourself?
  • to really live from your centre with love and respect?
  • to explore just how perfect you already are with some fun new practices?

Our daily yoga practice will explore how mudras, meditations, mantras and pranayama’s work alongside our asana postures to bring a greater self-awareness and confidence to our everyday life.  They will help you access a much deeper self-awareness and self-appreciation.

Our Love Nest…

Shropshire, sitting on the Welsh-English border blends Roman, Medieval and Victorian history and architecture in amongst its un-spoilt landscape.  It’s a county packed full of interesting towns and even a world heritage site. Diverse and very beautiful.   

The Mytton & Mermaid is a Grade II listed country house set on the banks of the River Severn.  When you think of quintessential British bricks and mortar this is it! It’s quirky and modern interior gives it a romantic and indulgent feel.   

We will be calling The Mermaid Suite our home for the weekend.  Beautifully furnished in antique oak with a comfortable country house feel, it is light and airy, and will make a perfect studio space for our ‘inside time’. 

Our ‘outside time’ will take in the beauty of the surrounding gardens, woodland and riverside.

Only a couple of miles south of Shrewsbury, it also offers free parking.

The Venue.

This private family owned hotel has been lovingly restored.  Awarded 3AA Stars it offers us beautiful furnished rooms, with airy naturally lit spaces. 

Located opposite Attingham Park and sitting on the banks of the River Severn, you will feel like you have found a rural idyll only a five-minute drive from Shrewsbury. 

Indeed, you can walk out of the hotel in any direction to connect with the nature surrounding us.  Trees, water, grass and sky.  Feel yourself unwinding and breath into this space.  You deserve it! 

Guest Bedrooms are appointed in the historic hotel, the courtyard or Bramble Cottage.  With views of the lawn, river, or Attingham Park.  The atmosphere is relaxed, traditional and understated quality.   

If you do decide to stay over for maximum relaxation all rooms include their famous Shropshire breakfast!

The Food! 

Why not skip the packed lunch and indulge in the culinary delights of our host venues’ restaurant?   

Using quality seasonal and local produce the food offered ranges between traditional Sunday Roasts, and modern vegan Vietnamese Bahn Mi salad with roasted peanuts.  With plenty to choose from in between and plenty of puddings to fuel those afternoon walks we will be going on! 

You have special dietary requirements? Don’t worry, let me know when you book and we can take a look at what is on the menu for you. I can double check anything you need clarifying before we go too.
