Sometimes you need to retreat from the world, to take time out, to reassess your life and where you are going.
At these times, a few days away from your life, with all its stresses and distractions, can make all the difference.
We offer a quiet, safe space to come on your own, or with your partner, to rest and restore yourself in the peace and tranquillity of the countryside.
The apartment is self catering, with comfortable living/dining room, double bedroom, kitchen and bathroom: everything you need for your stay, with none of the distractions of 21st century life. There is no TV or radio, no computer games, just a beautiful garden right outside your window and countryside walks right on your doorstep.
You can bring books, notebooks and pens, art materials: whatever you may want to help you relax and to process your reflections. Bring walking boots, warm clothes and a rain mac, so that you can set off out into the countryside whenever you feel like a good walk. Meet the trees, fields, birds, wildlife and the local horses (there are riding stables nearby).
Meet the neighbours…
An ideal place to stay if you want peace and quiet in beautiful countryside surroundings. It's set in a lovely, and very large, shared garden with French windows to gaze out of with farmland all around, offering lovely country walks from your door and picturesque villages close by. It is also within easy reach of the Yorkshire coast, Scarborough being only about a twenty minute drive away, and the North York Moors National Park is very close by with lots of walking and sight seeing opportunities, including forest walks and a picturesque railway journey. The Annexe itself is very cosy and has all you will need for a self-catering holiday with a lounge, double bedroom, large bathroom with bath and shower and a kitchen. Highly recommended if you want a peaceful break in the countryside.

Retreat in silence if you wish. Retreat with the help of daily spiritual guidance to assist your process. Enjoy relaxing therapies, such as Reiki or Crystal Healing, or move things forward proactively with the help of coaching, training or mentoring.
The choice is yours. Your Retreat is tailored for your needs. This is your time.
Contact Phil or Susanna to plan your stay and we will be happy to help you design the format of your Retreat, if you wish.
We recommend 3 days as the shortest time, to give you a chance to relax, settle in and start to notice real benefits.
Some sample possibilities for your Retreat:
Bring what you need with you, or shop for your stay, settle in and relax into your own rhythms, knowing you can eat, sleep, go for a walk, write your journal, paint, draw, read or just relax in the quiet and reflect. We are nearby in case you need anything, but we will leave you in complete, peaceful enjoyment of this calm and relaxing space.
Enjoy the benefits of a relaxing stay, with country walks, seaside, horse riding, pampering, relaxing or healing therapies and good food all available nearby. There are pubs, restaurant and a fish & chip shop in the village; Scarborough, Pickering and Malton are all close by, with Whitby and York under an hour’s drive away. All the beauty of seaside beaches, rugged cliffs, open moorland, native woodland, rivers and forests are nearby. Everything you could want to explore.
Training, coaching or mentoring Retreat
Imagine being able to focus on what you want to learn, without any distractions and with the benefit of a trainer, coach, or mentor working closely with you, and only you. Naturally it costs more, in terms of money, to have your own personal trainer, coach or mentor, working with you on your own personal programme of development. The saving in time and effort more than make up for the additional financial investment and the opportunity to gain access to exactly what you want is invaluable.
This kind of Retreat can incorporate any of our workshops and practitioner trainings, and will be designed taking account of your existing training and experience. No time is wasted; you will move forward powerfully and on purpose.
