Join us for a 7 to 14 day life-changing personal transformation and ultimate life-coaching. Find life-long peace, freedom and happiness.

The Zen Jungle Retreat has been purpose built for personal transformation and holds what can only be decribed as the ultimate life-changing bootcamp for up to 14 days almost every month of the year. The proven journey to peace, purpose and life-long happiness is based on the Zen jungle Holistic masterclass in how to truly love life and is both taught and coached by the team here.

Awaken to a whole new perspective on life and truly love it for the first time. Feel blissful peace and freedom by learning to dissolve the cause of all overthinking, relationship issues, trauma, triggers, addictions, low self opinion, insecurity and many mental health conditions.

To stay in a luxury, self-catered cabin at the retreat, book a mindfulness mini-break or a cabin only stay.

There are several ways to access the retreat and everything it has to offer. If you are not quite ready to book a personal transformation or can't spare the time, why not book a mini-break or cabin only stay right now.

Mini-breaks are now available starting most Thursdays between transformational and you can book a cabin simply by checking availability.

Why wait to stay, when you can visit right now.


Relax, transform, experience, transcend

A place to find thoughtless peace in magical spaces and people just like you. Zen Jungle Retreat is an enchanted lakeside haven spread across 40 acres of abundant nature and ancient woodland, on the border of Devon and Cornwall near Bude. You can choose to transform and awaken with us, book a cabin stay or become a member and visit regularly.






The retreat is a place to become thoughtless and find peace but there's also lots to see and do in the 40 acres with 5 beautiful lakes, woodland walks, ceremonial theatres and quiet seating spaces and lots of shared firepits and activities.

The retreat is becoming totally self sufficient and will soon be the grower of all produce served. Water is fresh from our borehole and ingredients are fresh from our growing spaces too. Food will soon become a central part of the retreat experience, with our new bistro, lakeside bar and  firepit and regular weekly cookouts. It's a great place to be if you like good food or even to bring your own.

Our calendar is building and will be released soon. We are now booking for a summer festival and will be host to several internal and external events. If you are looking for a teaching space or somewhere to hold an event, please get in touch.

Our yurts have capacity up to 85 people and will be served by the bistro bar and kitchen.



Become a retreat club member for unlimited access to everything the retreat has to offer. There's even a 14 day free trial.

Are you local enough to visit the retreat regularly or simply on holiday in the area? Then membership is perfect for you. it gives unlimited access to the whole retreat including all the walks, seating spaces, bookable experiences and firepits.


The bistro bar and kitchen will soon be open and the lakeside bar and grill will follow soon after. There's no risk as all memberships start with a 2 week free trial, followed by a small monthly fee. You can cancel it at any time.


The retreat is all about experiences in consciousness and finding personal peace, freedom and independence from the chaos of the outside world. As a retreat member you can book a range of experiences that will help you to find your true self, free yourself of the overthinking mind and ultimately see that you are not bound by your body.

Opening soon, our beautiful elevated banquet hall and connected buffet kitchen will serve simple, natural food that tastes amazing.

Mad Hatters Woodland Banquet

Although this is a little way off, we're excited to announce the mad hatters banquetting table in the woods. What an awesome space to eat.

Our new sunset bar is currently being built and will hold a launch party moving into summer. It's an amazing space with a firepit on the lake.
