Poundon House is an ideal location for a yoga retreat. The Queen Anne style country house is set within 6 acres of landscaped gardens on the edge of the Oxfordshire/ Buckinghamshire border. Despite the peace and tranquility of surrounding countryside, Poundon is in easy reach of London, Oxford, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, the Cotswolds and Bristol with fantastic transport links to the all of these places.
There are six acres of Poundon House garden for you to explore. There is a beautiful walled kitchen garden and orchard (an abundance of apples in September), which makes an excellent meditation spot in the summer ; the fabulous front lawn is perfect for a spot of croquet or catching some afternoon sun; and the meadows beyond offer the perfect chance to explore the local flora and fauna.
Poundon House has been the home to the Roscoe family for almost 40 years and is still privately owned and lived in by the family making it full of warmth and life. The house was built by the Heywood-Lonsdale’s in 1908 for entertaining and hosting large house parties. It makes it ideal for large groups to stay, combining a communal intimacy with a sense of freedom and space. Each room in the house has been carefully redecorated and restored over the last five years, while staying true to the country house-style of the Edwardian era.
Once you arrive at Poundon, you will immediately feel at home. Whether its settling down in front of a roaring open fire, taking a long bath in one of the unique bathrooms or going for a quiet walk in the apple orchard, for over a century Poundon has been the perfect place to escape the bustle of city life.
