Why choose this Yoga & Wellbeing Retreat?

Imagine waking in the morning and listening to the quietude of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park before practicing yoga every morning. Sipping your morning tea whilst looking out across the vast open space of Loch Lomond, heading to daily yoga and wellbeing sessions and enjoying days filled with walking through acres of open space, eating delicious foods specially prepared for us, and  nourishing yourself with a deeply restful practice and ending the evening relaxing in your own bedroom overlooking the Loch or tucked up in one of the cosy cottages.

This Yoga & Wellbeing Retreat is a very special and unique experience.

I believe we have a right to rest. A right to invest our time, energy and finances in experiences that bring joy. This is your opportunity to gift yourself a nourishing, nurturing and restful wellbeing break in a place of natural beauty – you deserve it.

Welcome to one of Scotland’s most naturally beautiful locations. With 133 acres of rolling countryside overlooking one of Scotland’s most iconic lochs, Loch Lomond. This glorious location has been chosen especially for you offering time to pause, breathe, connect and find the space in life for creativity, rest and joy.

There’s something incredibly special about Ardoch.  The lovely spaces, inside and out, lend themselves delightfully to this retreat.

All of the estate is yours for your stay so as well as taking in the incredible vistas, you can wander, stroll, run or tromp through the expansive grounds.  You’ll find shady woodlands, a fire pit, fields, a small sheltered walled garden, covered terraces with soft seating and a large lawn that beckons you to sit awhile and look at Loch Lomond glistening in the distance.

What is Ardoch Loch Lomond?

Firstly there is Ardoch House, a charming farmhouse that has been totally re-imagined to become what it is today – it includes a cosy drawing room and wood burning stove, dining room and four big bedrooms.

Then there’s The Barn, originally part of a working farm that has undergone an incredible transformation. It is home to snug corners and beautiful bedrooms.

Finally, the lovely farm cottages with bedrooms on the ground floor and upstairs will be our yoga space.

These three very different buildings seamlessly blend the old and new Ardoch, all bordering a central inner courtyard, with access to the gardens and outdoor spaces from all sides.

Ardoch Loch Lomond is a story of beautiful, natural spaces and one I know you will love.

Ardoch was generously gifted to Children’s’ Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) in 2020 and opened in 2021, operating as a 4 star exclusive use hospitality venue. The venue has been established with a unique “profit with purpose” ethos. Ardoch invites you to Make a Difference.
