Bala Brook

Retreat Centre on Dartmoor

Bala Brook is a residential venue for
Yoga and Buddhist retreats
and Dartmoor appreciation.

River meadow Thirty five acres of delightful gardens, fields, mature oak trees and woodland adjoining the waterfalls of Bala Brook tumbling down to join the river Avon as it runs down to the sea at Bantham.
Walking on the Moor. A back gate leads out onto the wide open Moor. From the front it’s a short walk up the lane to Shipley Bridge and pedestrian track leading up to the Avon reservoir and higher open Moor. An exhilarating walk Northwards brings strong hikers to Princetown in the centre of Dartmoor. Or another walk westwards leads to the famous ancient oaks at Piles Wood alongside the exquisite river Erme. There are other, gentler walks around, some through woodland. Walking on the Moor you will need proper shoes, warm wind and waterproof jackets and hats.


Bala Brook is run by Jo Pelly (director) and her dogs, backed up by a team of helpers. Jo is deaf.
