Taw Valley Pilates Residential Retreats with a difference!


We offer Residential Retreats at the stunning South Coombe Country Cottages in Witheridge not far from Tiverton. We are unique in that with this venue (as well as our Pilates Equipment Studio at Newnham Bridge, Umberleigh), booking is available year round, so to suit you rather than to fit in with us… and not just limited to adults!  






We do not schedule a set of classes during your holiday, but instead let you choose what to add to your relaxing break. We cater for individuals or families with accommodation at luxurious self-contained cottages or the B&B. Our holidays can be booked at South Coombe Country Cottage prices through their website

then linked with Master Pilates Teacher Lauren Bannister and her daughter Jess, to add on the Pilates aspect of your holiday.  This gives you the option of adding Pilates Classes, Detox Consultations, Nutritional Appointments, Lifestyle Analysis or Raw Food Cooking and Juicing Demonstrations. It is all about building the package that you would like. We can even run Pilates classes for children!

South Coombe Country Cottages run by Jonquil and Chris Boyes offers peace and tranquillity in luxury and comfort all year round. South Coombe is a 17th century farmhouse,  nestled in fifteen acres of their own orchards, lawns & fields. There’s a meadow for ball games, a children’s playground in the orchard and a gentle stream and pond to relax beside. In the indoor leisure area, you can unwind by the heated swimming pool or use the sauna. We have the games room which we use for Pilates private or shared classes, and toddlers tumble room.






Our Pilates Equipment Studio is at Woodvale House, Newnham Bridge near Umberleigh. Again any Pilates Mat and / or Equipment sessions can be booked here along with Detox Consultations and  Nutritional Appointments.

Woodvale House is over 200 years old and was once the Fortescue Arms, an old staging post and public house. It is now our family home and we have opened up part of the ground floor for our guests. The Pilates Studio is bright and airy with various pieces of large Pilates Equipment and enough space for single or shared sessions with all  Pilates programmes tailored to your  individual needs.

Prices for accommodation are listed on https://southcoombe.co.uk

Prices for Pilates Privates, Classes and Nutritional Appointments at either venue, are available at our regular prices through Taw Valley Pilates. For specialist Nutritional Appointments and / or Pilates for Children, please call 01769 580618.
