“Relaxing, energising, rejuvenating .....”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

This was a last-minute break away for us , so we were looking for comfortable accommodation in a pretty spot . We bagged a whole lot more ... Witherdens Hall has a special atmosphere , an energy which is hard to describe, one conducive to relaxation, peace and tranquility and yet energising and up-lifting . The Cook family needed all of the above ! Louise and Craig were fine hosts , with attention to every detail and passing whim of their guests (barbeques , highchairs provided when needed, very lovely brown labradors which we adopted for the duration of our stay, and where else does the owner lend you their car when your husband is working for the day ?!!) . Great personalised , enthused care and attention . Our kids Harvey and Rosa played beautifully with Alice , their daughter, who was very patient and kind with our 2 year old ! Chickens , gorgeous corn-fields , swimming pool , freshly arranged flowers in the retreat, and a great little spa with massage chair and steam shower all helped us to feel more and more relaxed and rejuvenated as the week went on . Then there was the gorgeous and very special Marilyn and Gary next door . Marilyn provided our family with love, warmth, friendship and the most powerful and profound reiki a girl could ask for .... Marilyn is one of the retreat's best assets (I threatened to whisk her away with us ) and definately one of many reasons to return .
A wonderful break - thank you ! :) xxx

My wife and I spent 2 wonderful nights in the Cottage at Witherdens Hall. A warm welcome, real comfort in the Cottage with absolutely everything you could need, and all top quality (including an excellent choice of books!), and a lovely breakfast spread. The sauna, steam room, massage chair facilities were excellent, very relaxing and comfortable. We both had a great Indian Head massage from Steve, and again having that facility 5 metres from the Cottage really makes life easy. Everyone is so helpful, and the peace and quiet makes it an excellent short break, with restaurants, farm shops and everything to hand if you need them. Highly recommended.
Peter Hutchinson

Room Tip: Take the cottage, bright, comfortable, very spacious, beautifully appointed

My weary husband and I spent a fantastic weekend at Witherden and met Louise and Marilyn the Reiki practitioner. I am heavily pregnant and still working so we needed to just escape, London- friends family and our own heads for a bit. Louise was so lovely and made every effort possible to make this healing weekend happen for us. To be honest the birdsong in the morning would have done the trick in itself, without the whirlpool bath, fluffy towels and warm welcome. The reading material around the cottage lured us both into a deep state of quiet and reflection We had a Reiki session with Marilyn and 3 weeks later we both keep remarking on energy levels and sense of wellbeing, Really amazing sessions and a truly wonderful woman. We cannot wait to return here and plan to do the reiki one trainin later in teh year, or any other training that gives us the excuse to return to this magical place.Deepest thanks.

The Retreat workspace has all mod cons and is spotlessly clean. Every aspect exudes quality. The cottage where I choose to stay when I'm working there is remarkably well appointed and comfortable in the extreme. I love this place for work and also to bring my family and relax. The first time I came to visit when I was looking for a venue for my fear of public speaking retreat, I fell in love with it. It's so tranquil and energising. Regards Vince Stevenson, Education Director, College of Public Speaking

Room Tip: Book early, the cottage and the workspace is in high demand.

If I had to mention only one thing about Witherdens Hall I would choose to speak about "positive energy". This cannot be improvised or faked, and is given by a wide array of elements, that need to coexist in one place to create a feeling of harmony.

Witherdens all encompasses many of these elements, just to mention some: nature, care, space and silence.

- Nature. The settings of Witherdens Hall are splendid, wide open fields surround the house, and the presence of animals at a short distance from the courtyard gives the guests a feeling of liveliness.

-Care. Tthe owner is genuinely interested in the well being and comfort of her guests.
Great attention has been spent to make sure the guests are comfortable, understood and looked after.

- Space. The internal space of the accommodation and the surroundings are harmonious and provide a good refuge from the cluttered and noisy city life.

- Silence. Because of its settings Witherdens Hall provides the quietest and peaceful environment, that allows deep relaxation.

I was there for 3 days with my husband and my children, we all had a great and relaxing family time, we didn't use any of the SPA treatments, perhaps a treat to keep for our next visit.

Under 2 hours drive from London this is the perfect place to get away from it all and for rest and relaxation.

Situated in the countryside with several farm shops nearby the cottage is beautifully decorated and very comfortable with plenty of magazines, books, DVDs etc to keep you entertained if required. On site is also a heat room and Louise the owner suggests a number of local people to contact for any treatment you desire such as massage, Reiki treatment etc.

Also nearby is the local Gibson's farm shop and cafe which I would highly recommend visiting. There are plenty of walks too.

Great 3 day break.

The Retreat was warm, welcoming, spotlessly clean and well organised. With no plans for the weekend, the sun came out and we took each day as it came, walked through the countryside, found an amazing pub 5 mins away for dinner, and stocked up with local produce at the nearby farm shop....left feeling fully recharged for the week ahead.
