A perfect place for those delicious barbecues and, for cooler times of the year, guests can enjoy a huge open log fire in one of the sitting-rooms.

I have experienced what true happiness feels like again. This retreat is just the most beautiful venue and the energy is very rejuvinating and special...I will be back....
The photo's just don't do it justice. You need to see it to believe it...it has the WOW factor
Thank you so much for streatching me, stroking me and feeding me. And thanks to the whole
group for warmth, friendship, laughter. What a fabulous relaxing and happy week. Sunny memories
to last all winter long. I can't wait to do it again.
'It's been fab. Thank you so much for helping me to touch my toes again! It's been a fabulous 'eat, pray &
love' week that I will treasure always'.
Finding this retreat with you was, for me like finding a diamond on a sandy beach. The other friends
who have come along to make this retreat have been a breath of fresh air. I havn't laughed, relaxed,
streatched or been with so much 'ab' pain for so long. The food was a welcome experience and I enjoyed everything about eating vegetarian for the week.
