Unplug, Reset, Recharge - A day immersed in Nature & Feasting from the farm
This day aims to open the senses to the natural world. Being in nature can restore your mood, give you back your energy and vitality, refresh and rejuvenate you.
Your experience takes place on Harewood Farm, a 25-acre smallholding of ancient meadows and mixed woodland on the River Tamar, with a purpose-built field kitchen barn.
Arrive to a welcome tea that is made with wild plants from the land. Here, you are building a connection to ‘place’ by imbibing something from that place.
You will then take a guided walk in the rich landscape. Nature immersion involves taking in the landscape through your senses, which bridges the gap between you and the natural world.
The expanding of your senses into the calm, natural environment will help you to unplug, slow down, destress and relax. When you stop thinking about anything, you arrive in the present moment, you step away from the world, to be able to see it more clearly when you return to it.
At lunch, you will continue this feast for the senses. Everything you eat is grown here at Harewood by your hosts or in the local terroir. Your hosts are passionate about locally produced organic food using regenerative farming methods.
After lunch, you will engage in a creative art project that draws on the sensory experience of the morning. It could be the art of Hapa Zome or Japanese Leaf bashing, an Aromatherapy session, making room scents with ingredients from the forest, or exploring the art of touch with massage techniques.
You will finish the day with a tea ceremony, boiling your water over a fire made with wood that has been gathered from the land and creating a final wild plant brew.
You’ll sleep well after a day out in nature, and hopefully get to experience the wide-open skies for a bit of stargazing from the deck at The Chapel or the patio at Trecarney, whichever is your chosen accommodation.
