“Perfect for rest, relaxation and recharging.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2011

Just loved going back to the Retreat a second time. It was even more enjoyable this time.....this time did manage to go the lovely farm shop nearby within perfect walking distance-just refreshing!

It was just what I wanted after an exhausting but life changing personal development course- time and space to sleep and eat healthily. And Louise and Craig are such an amazing, thoughtful couple!

I'm so glad to have found a haven so close to London, where I know I'll find peace and quiet every time. If you must visit one retreat this year, make it Witherdens Hall!

Dear Anney,

Thank you for your lovely review. It is a total pleasure to have you stay with us. We look forward to seeing you again in April. It's even nicer here when the weather is warm - you wait til you have the pool to use as well as the Spa!

Warmest wishes,

Louise

My sister and I stayed 3 nights at Witherdens Hall and had some therapies during our stay. Could not fault The Retreat in any way. Louise and Craig delightful, warm, friendly hosts. Breakfasts and house speciality of Pea Soup were scrumptious. Accommodation luxuriously comfortable, no skimping here. Beautiful bed linen, towelling robes. Two enormous vases of very high quality lovely flowers. Therapists are booked directly with the people involved (not through Louise) and were also really, really good. I will definitely be returning to The Retreat and shall encourage friends to try its charms as well. I have not tried any of the courses on offer, but they look very interesting.

This was my second trip to Witherdens - one year on from the last. This time I also availed myself of some of Louise's business strategy consulting, and some treatments.

It really felt like coming home, with the same palpable but indefinable sense of peace. The flowers, this time roses, had filled the Retreat with perfume every time I walked back in. But also something new - the mini spa. I partcularly recommend the infra-red sauna... a sauna you can sit and read in!!

A great balance between relaxing, recharging, and building up energy and purpose for the year ahead. I can see this becoming an annual tradition.

We arrived pretty pooped after way too many hours/weeks hard at work on various projects to find that our every whim had been catered for. We were met with genuine warmth and abundance of Organics goodies. Not only that, the sense of calm that claims you is quite unique. We defy anyone not to leave fully rejuvenated, ready to tackle anything that life might throw your way.

We found The Retreat quite by chance as we were trawling the web to find somewhere suitable for children, close to Howletts zoo and also a lovely standard for the adults! The Retreat was just perfect in every way. Beautifully clean and ready for our arrival with organic local produce in the fridge all we had to do was unpack our weekend bags! The kids rushed off to meet the pigs and chickens and check (frequently!!!) for fresh eggs as we instantly relaxed from our hectic London lives. Craig and Louise were perfect hosts and made us feel that we were old friends coming to stay and at the same time left us to get on with things. It was our son's 4th birthday (hence the zoo visit) and when the grandparents came back for birthday cake they too were impressed with the set up. Feeling rather exhausted from the travel down I slept on the crystal bed and think it was the best night's sleep since before I had children! Small touches such as beautiful bed linen and bath salts make you feel pampered and special. It just goes to show that is is possible to stay away with small children and also feel like adults. Weather was on our side for the whole weekend- the kids were outdoors and slept like babies in the car on the way home. A big bonus!

We stayed 3 nights at Witherdens Hall and I would like to say I will definitely be going back soon.
Louise and Craig were amazing hosts and Marilyn's reiki treatment is something not to be missed. It felt welcoming, homely to be here and utterfly peaceful.
We were among the first people to make use of the 'mini spa' facilities on site i.e. infra red sauna and steam bath (only 1 person use at a time) - not my cup of tea personally, but nice to have none the less.
Just few miles from here is a splendid, authentic Ayurvedic Spa for serious spa goers - check out tor spa.
The retreat place is thouroughly organic from the foodstuff to shower gels and dishwashing liquid, leaving you feeling quite nourished mentally and physcially.
