Fergus has chosen Tresanton because it has a perfect position and views of the Cornish sea, with walks into the most amazingly unspoilt coastal paths, from which one can see Peregrine Falcons, Curlew, an amazing abundance of wild flower meadows and rock pools alive with crabs and colourful anemones.

Fergus will lead quiet walks to explain how to connect with nature, whilst pointing out the less obvious and the more unusual wildlife such as Bottlenose dolphins, Common and Atlantic Grey seals. Fergus will also draw on informal practices used in meditation and mindfulness to help people connect with the beauty of nature. The evenings include screenings of wildlife films produced by Fergus and presented by Sir David Attenborough.

The two day retreat runs seamlessly into a country Nature Connection Weekend at Hotel Endsleigh in Dartmoor.

From £525 per person, based on two people sharing. Including two nights accommodation, breakfast, lunch, dinner and Fergus as your guide.

Nature Retreats at Tresanton, St Mawes, Cornwall

An excellent and highly recommended pair of Swarovski binoculars will be issued by Fergus on loan to each client for the duration of the Nature Retreat



Tresanton is on the edge of St Mawes, one of the prettiest fishing villages in Cornwall. In 1997 Tresanton was bought by Olga Polizzi and she spent two years completely redesigning it. All rooms have views across the sea towards St Anthony’s lighthouse. Tresanton has 30 rooms and suites, a restaurant with large terraces, a room for private parties, a dogs’ bar and a private sailing boat. The Hotel loves children and Tresanton has a playroom and children’s garden.


Wed 19 Apr - Fri 21 Apr 2017

You will need to wear suitable clothes and footwear for walking on the rocky shore, in fields and woodland (keep an eye on the weather forecast!).  You do also need to be full able-bodied and reasonably fit. We may end up walking quite a long distance, and some of the terrain can be steep, muddy or involve climbing over or ducking under obstacles of various types.
