It is surrounded by un-spoilt countryside providing a variety of woodland, moorland and costal walks with outstanding views.

Find a day that suits you! - Each day provides a different mixture of Health and Wellbeing Sessions to help you to have a change of scene, relax and try new things with others.

"…And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow…. I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore. While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey, I hear it in the deep heart’s core."
- W B Yeats


A combination of the following workshops and sessions are included in our retreat days. You also have the opportunity to purchase one-on-one relaxation treatments that are designed to compliment your experience, and will help you unwind even further.


Massage Workshop
Massage Workshop
- Holistic Energy Care Management

This workshop gives a fresh new look at the way we lead your lives; it helps to raise awareness to how you care for own energy, and how it can get depleted externally, and internally. It gives tools on how to be more mindful in all that you do, be more connected to what you really want and feel. With this deeper understanding, you can improve and enhance your work, personal life, be more creative, avoid burnout, bored-out, excessive tiredness, stress, anxiety and illness. During the workshop essential energy skills are taught to help increase and balance energy.


You will learn a series of Yoga and Shibashi exercises (meditative movements derived from Tai Chi) which help you to relax, balance, recharge, and improve your general health and wellbeing.

"She's serene, quietly majestic, unassuming and tender. She speaks with gently tongues about the pregnant pauses in life, and the riches of hearing the unheard. She invites us to listen by reaching out her gentle rippling hands, her restful riches of colour, showers of spontaneous sparkles, and whispering windy wave. ' Look at me, sit with me, rest by me', she implores."
- About Julia Seaton (Yoga Instructor/Facilitator)


Free Dance Class
Free-Dance, inspired by 5 rhythms
- Interpretive Movement/Dance

Free Dance Sessions are so-called because there is no instruction, they give you a wonderful opportunity to express yourself, creatively, mindfully & playfully in any way you choose to different modes of inspiring music. It brings together universal wisdom that underlies all movement practices. As nobody watches anyone else, feel rest assured that self-consciousness just melts away, leaving you to have freeing fun!

Inspired by 5 Rhythms, carefully chosen tracks are put together to help you to observe and explore different sides of yourself, and learn to dance more freely through the rhythms of life. There’s space to freely move or dance in anyway that feels right for you giving you that rare chance to just let your ‘dancing spirit’ out and dance with the flow of life! Dancing in Candlelight makes it extra special!


- Contemplative Movement/Dance

This is an opportunity to move your bodies from a place of stillness and inner connection. Intuitive movement allows our bodies to naturally unwind, release tensions and blocks in ways we may not have experienced or thought of doing before. Gentle and slow movements, done without being watched or judged. I will be facilitating, then participating!
