"Oh my Goodness!!!! This weekend has been so incredibly wonderful - beautiful surroundings, beautiful energy, beautiful people. A slice of heaven!!" .......(Helen, Seaford)
"Amazing weekend, it's so much more than I had expected,,.(Karina, Newcastle)
" It was such a good little break, loved all the yoga, food, beautiful walk, and a really nice bunch of people. You set a really good tone - it was very relaxed and people were able to experience the weekend in whichever way they wanted to, without any feeling that we 'should' be doing one thing or another... which I think played a big role in making it so refreshing and enjoyable. I will be back -you will see mor
e of me, and I suspect you may meet some of my friends in future too... I've been recommending it to everyone! ......
"It was a pleasure to meet all of you and the weekend was just what I need to get back on track, you’ll definitely be seeing me again"....(Mark, Oxfordshire)
