Amateur or professional groups of 3 to 15 can have special breaks at Ballin Temple.

We are well suited to executive and transformation retreats where privacy is important and the exclusive natural environment gives positive energy. 

Groups can combine angling, gardening, forestry, cooking, skeet shooting and yoga, or develop team dynamics in a comfortable private setting. We are enthusiastic about introducing people to rural living and healthy lifestyles.

We are happy to help plan a special break and can draw on a network of coaches and trainers to make your retreat unique.  Please get in touch to chat about your needs.

Examples of Bespoke Retreats

The schedules below indicate two possible formats for group retreats: mid-week or weekend and whole week.

A variety of morning and afternoon activities are indicated, although groups may like to concentrate on one activity, like fishing, painting or yoga, which they pursue most mornings and/or afternoons.  We can also customise group breaks which focus on lifestyle. These range from a Spa Week which focuses on healthy body, mind and spirit to a LOHAS Camp, which introduces a number of rural activities.
