new package options

When I set up take time retreats I had a very clear vision about the accommodation I wanted to offer and it took my several months to find the venue I had been searching for.

One of the non-negotiables for me was that all the rooms would be of an equal standard, of similar size and all with en-suite facilities. Several of the venues I looked at had a fairly traditional layout, with one luxurious, en-suite master bedroom, one other en-suite room and then several smaller rooms, all of which had to share one bathroom.

Those venues were never an option for me.

I wanted to ensure that all guests felt equal so that the experience felt inclusive and cohesive for everyone involved, and that is what I found with our retreat venue.

The other factor which was really important for me was giving guests the option to have sole occupancy of their room rather than being obliged to share with a total stranger. For me there is nothing more annoying than having my sleep disturbed by the sound of another person breathing nearby!! So many retreat breaks that I have looked into for my own use do not offer single occupancy. Or if they do, it’s in a single bed, in the smallest room, tucked away in the darkest corner…which never feels like a great option either.

Anyway, enough about my sleeping preferences, the point of this post is to let you know that I have just added some extra package options because it seems that not everyone is quite so fussy as me… (who knew??!)



There is now the option to buy either our standard package or the original all-inclusive package so that you can choose whichever is best suited to your needs and your budget.

The all-inclusive package includes absolutely everything, with the added option of sole or shared occupancy. If you choose sole occupancy you can luxuriate in your large, spacious, light and airy room with luxury en-suite shower room all to yourself (my idea of heaven!) If you choose shared occupancy, we will allocate someone to share your room with you but you still get to enjoy a large, spacious, light and airy room with luxury en-suite shower room. Prices start at £480 per person.

The standard package excludes some of the luxurious features of the all-inclusive option and is only available with shared occupancy. However, the rooms are still exactly the same, the activities and workshops are no different and all the meals and drinks are the same too. It is a great option if you would like to enjoy a fabulous retreat experience but have a limited budget. Prices start at £330 per person.

Please know that you will be warmly welcomed whichever package you choose and that you will be fully included in all retreat activities so there is no reason for anyone to know which package you opted for.
