A magical, 2 night forest getaway.
A pampering escape for rushed city skaters. Wake up with an outdoor morning yoga class, relax with a massage or rejuvenate with a 1:1 physio session in our treatment room before exploring the surrounding woodland on a guided foraging walk.
Fancy taking off into the woods for a while? You don’t need to be a pro camper (the glamping huts are cosy and furnished!) or even be experienced in mindfulness, as you’ll learn all the techniques you need on the retreat. Staying in an lush 42 acre private woodland, you’ll get stuck into guided foraging walks, nature-sensing activities and homegrown, locally sourced or foraged plant-based food.
