Mama Retreat Days

"Amazing Mama retreat day, led by the warm, nurturing and inspiring Cathy at the truly beautiful Tofte Manor.
I left feeling energised, relaxed and inspired. Highly recommend!! Thank you so much Cathy."

"I have been struggling for a while with negative feelings towards myself,

but today I really felt like I CAN and WILL love myself, as I am."

It's time for you.

You give to everyone else. It's time for you.

Time for yourself. Time to be yourself.

As mums we barely get time to think, let alone properly recharge. So busy looking after everybody, everything; juggling family, work, house, and trying to be the Chilled Mama we want to be.

This is just what you need: a day to totally relax and unwind. Slow down and sink into deep relaxation. Time to think and find yourself again. Beautiful and peaceful setting; yummy food; and great company. 

"They are really amazing days. We all said we didn’t want the day to end and would quite enjoy a weekend retreat! "


"This was a truly special day for me. I learnt so much about myself, I didn't think I would get as much out of it as I did! "


"It was an awesome day with an amazing bunch of women. What a powerful and relaxing retreat that was. Thank you Cathy for organizing such a beautiful day and treating all the mamas with yummy food and treats. The Manor was stunning too. See you again soon."

A day of unique experiences.

Some come to mark a milestone, such as returning to work, or children leaving home. Others come to share a special day with their friend, sister or mum. Many come with something inside to heal, to release, to decide. Some simply come to let go of the busy-ness. The best self-care you can give yourself.

Everything during the day is optional. You choose to join in the relaxations and mindfulness or take time to sit and read or even have a nap. There will be time to just wander the beautiful grounds, find the unusual garden seats, and hidden paths, the beautiful statues and crystals.

The day is all about you, giving you time to relax fully, to think, and time to recharge. 

Babies in arms are welcome.  This retreat is for all mums, however old your children are, whether 2 months, 2 years, 22 years or more, and non-binary parents, and those who take mothering roles in their lives.

Recognise your journey, the ups and the downs. Reward yourself for all the work, sacrifice, and pain. Give time to your inner you. Integrate the woman and the mother. Celebrate your blessings.

"What an amazing magical day I had today on Chilled Mama's retreat today. Cathy is so loving, nurturing & gentle, guiding you through the day. Highly recommend this day and the location is just beautiful."

This will be the last Chilled Mama Retreat Day at Tofte Manor as they have become so busy with weekend retreats they are not taking bookings for single days. You will still be able to benefit from Tofte Manor at the Chilled Mama Weekend Retreat

Linda and I are looking at other venues for day retreats. 

I am on a very restricted diet (dairy soya and egg free). Will there be anything for me to eat?
Yes! The food will be vegetarian and vegan. I do ask for dietary requirements and try to meet them. I have can provide specific brands if needed. 
My children are all school age. Can I still come?
Yes! It doesn't matter how old your children are. Grandparents welcome! This is a chance for you to recharge, and relax. You've earned this.
I don't drive. Is there any help to get to the venue?
Bedford train station is 15 mins away by taxi. I can give you details. I may be able to arrange lifts, no guarantee.
Can I bring my baby?
I recommend this session is only for babes in arms as there is not room for more mobile babies and I do not provide any toys for them. 
Can I book a place for my partner?
Yes! This makes a great gift. Pay and then drop me an email.
