Nestled between two lakes and surrounded by unspoilt forest lays Żurawi Młyn, our welcoming home for the 6 day retreat.
Żurawi Młyn (translation ‘Crane’s Mill’) is a beautiful former mill that has been lovingly transformed into a small country house hotel. It lays on the bank of a river which connects two picturesque lakes. The area is lush with forests and green fields, the perfect location for both relaxation & active pursuits, all just on our door step.
Żurawi Młyn is one of our favourite places to visit, our previous guests found the place to be magical and with Poland being Piotr’s home country he will be bursting with facts and history for those who are interested.
The Crane’s Mill is located in the Kaszuby region of northern Poland, approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes from Gdansk airport
Kaszuby is naturally rich in forests, rivers and lakes which gives us an ideal location for optional extra activities such as hiking, cycling or kayaking.
Our all inclusive retreat package includes up to 4 nights accommodation, 4 brunches, 3 dinners, 11 classes, kayak day trip (optional) plus all hot and cold beverages and snacks throughout the retreat.

We always ensure small numbers are kept so we can provide our individual attentive service and meet all our guests needs, Therefore there will be a maximum of 12 participants on this retreat. Rooms have limited availability, so please get in touch with us for your preference. See details below.
The retreat environment is one of community with a friendly group atmosphere so guests who are joining by themselves should not feel apprehensive.
There will also be ample opportunity for individual time, private walks, silence etc so those who are coming for self reflection will not be disappointed.
Our own talented chef Piotr will be travelling from Ireland to prepare our meals fresh on site. He will also be collaborating with the Mill team to create delicious dishes from local ingredients and no doubt giving us a flavour of some traditional Polish cuisine.
One thing our guests are always impressed by is our dedication to making food as big an element on our retreats as our yoga practices. Through our carefully designed menus we show how you can eat balanced, healthy and nutritious vegetarian meals without compromising on taste, flavours or, importantly….dessert! Piotr freely offers his cooking tips and recipes to all guests.
Along with our hearty brunches and three course evening meals, hot & cold beverages and snacks will also be available throughout the retreat.
All meals will be vegetarian, guests with dietary needs or special requests, please let us know when booking.
