‘You time’ Retreats

In our popular, signature ‘you time’ retreats we invite you to come and be cared for. Allow us to take care of all the chores, leaving you free to simply be.

It’s a rare thing these days to be genuinely responsibility free. There’s always something to be done or someone to be taken care of. How much time do we put aside to care for ourselves? And how often are we entirely free to follow a whim or go with what our moods tell us we need? For a lot of people, the answer is never.

Whether it’s a book you’ve been meaning to finish, or something creative you never get time for, an amble in nature with no agenda or that highly mystifying enigma that is sleep, we’ll create the time and space for you to get what you need. From the minute you arrive, you’ll be put at your ease in a lighthearted and friendly environment. We make it very clear that there are no duties or obligations, it’s your time and we encourage you to do what you please.
