Are you ready for a Dirty Weekend? Join us in 2023 for our new Retreat concept, where you can get absolutely filthy, Cabilla style. During your stay, you’ll roll up your sleeves and plant trees as part of our temperate rainforest expansion project, experience guided rainforest walks to learn about soil health and species reintroduction, plus you’ll meet our beavers, Sigourney and Jean-Claude. And when you’re finished getting dirty, discover the calming bliss of a sound bath, yoga classes and our new Woodland Sauna to help you relax. You’ll also receive three nourishing meals a day, cooked by our private chefs, and spend evenings around the fire drinking hot chocolate and wine, while listening to live music.

The Details

Our Dirty Weekend Retreats take place across 3 days and 2 nights (Friday to Sunday). Guests will have full access to the Cabilla site, including the communal facilities in The Barns, from the sitting room to our luxury monsoon showers.
