A Special Pampering just for You

Whether it's a relaxing whole body massage, a full facial, or just a manicure that you're looking for, you'll be able to enjoy pampering in the comfort of your own room on your retreat - with a glass of prosecco in hand. Whichever options you choose, our beauty and care experts will ensure your experience is truly indulgent.

Express Yourself

While on your retreat you can have a go at doing something creative just for you! We provide materials and support to explore painting, collage, photography and other art forms - all in a relaxed, caring environment. You'll even have a memento or two to take home.

The Life of Luxury

Join your fellow retreaters on the afternoon of day two, in the comfort of our guest lounge, for a luxurious afternoon tea with classic cucumber sandwiches (alongside other varieties!), a choice of freshly baked scones, clotted cream and jams, and a special selection of cakes and petit-fours. Indulgent, delicious and not to be missed. Wicked and heavenly all at the same time!

Fresh Baked Scones

Out Into Nature

Our retreat is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty with marked and unmarked walks on our doorstep - to suit all moods and desires. You can be assured of clean air, beautiful views and nature in all its glory, whether you take a short hike to the ancient hill fort on the top of Caer Drewyn, a gentle stroll along the river to The Grouse Inn in Carrog, or a challenging climb up to the Pen y Pigyn lookout on the edge of the Berwyns. As beautiful as the Lake District but not yet spoiled by tourism: a secret you'll want to keep.

At the End of the Day

Every evening you choose your own after-dinner entertainment to while away the time before bed: board games in the games room; TV in the lounge; reading in the library; relaxing in a hot bath in the peaceful surroundings of your room. A luxurious hot chocolate - with marshmallows and cream - will be the perfect accompaniment, whichever option you choose, and then there's the luxury of your bed with a warm duvet to snuggle up in and nothing (or no-one!) to disturb your sleep. Bliss.

Mindfulness and Bodycare

Every day features a bespoke morning session to calm, focus and enrich your body and mind for the day ahead. Whether it's Yoga or Pilates, a dip into Alexander Technique, or engagement in one of our unique Soundscape Relaxation sessions - you will be helped to feel appropriately prepared for the day ahead. No previous experience is required.

It's Movie Night!

Settle down in your PJs with a bottle of wine, a box of popcorn and copious other snacks to enjoy a light-hearted romp through a Rom-Com chosen by the group. Stretch out on the sofa, lie back on a bean bag, relax and enjoy the film in subdued lighting with new friends and not a care in the world.

Moments of Mystery

Every one of our retreats features a unique moment of mystery: it might be a cocktail-mixing session, a little bit of close-up magic with a trick to take home, a silent after-dinner disco or a special guest. Or maybe something else altogether! It's our little surprise, adding a little surprise to your stay.

Wining and Dining

Your bespoke retreat dinner menu, mixing classic dishes with glorious desserts, caters for all dietary needs and comes with wine included. Breakfast and lunch provide a selection of hot and cold foods for you to choose from, and all meals are freshly cooked using local ingredients. Light refreshments, including copious amounts of tea and coffee, are provided mid-morning and mid-afternoon every day too. You'll certainly eat well! In addition, our licensed bar is open throughout the retreat and serves a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to suit all tastes.

Hometime

At the end of your retreat you will head home relaxed, refreshed, reinvigorated and with a little bag of goodies to keep the self-care going after you leave us. More importantly, you'll depart with new friendships, wonderful memories and some personal goals to help you continue to negotiate your hectic life as a mum in the 21st Century. And we are sure you'll also leave with a strong desire to return before too long - to be pampered all over again!
