Retreat Day 

Relax, stop, breathe, & restore your serenity

Life can be busy, stressful, exhausting, even in normal times. Add in a global pandemic, and other recent events, and it is no wonder parents are all feeling frazzled! 

So I bet you're feeling the need for some time on your own, some quality 'me time'? Time away from the stresses and the daily repetitive work? A day for yourself, to relax, recharge, and find your centre again?


If mums hold up the world, who holds up mums?

Come and join me for a day of peace and tranquillity: sink into the peace of Tofte Manor, enjoy deep relaxations, calm and simple mindfulness exercises. Restore your serenity, recharge your batteries, relax your body and mind.

Labyrinth walk: A labyrinth has a single winding path you follow to the centre and back out again. There are no decisions to be made, just put one foot in front of the other. Following the twisty path with a slow step help you to be 'in the moment', to notice your senses, to let your thoughts mingle, and unknot themselves. The labyrinth at Tofte Manor is one of the best in the UK, being a grass path, large and in the design of the 11th century labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral, France.

Fire ceremony: This is a quiet, contemplative ceremony


I have been running retreat days for mums and parents-to-be at Tofte Manor for the past five years.  Tofte Manor is a stunning venue. We will be based in a converted coach house, within a beautiful courtyard. We will use an airy yoga room, and the beautiful grounds.  


Everyone seems to get more out of the day than they thought. Giving yourself the gift of a day like this is more than a treat, it is essential maintenance. To connect to your inner self, to remember who you are, to breathe deep and laugh long. I facilitate the activities, and you make the discoveries. 

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. No one has to share more than they want to share, if anything at all. It is a safe space to be yourself. 

Good food, nutritious snacks and as many hot cups of tea as you want all day.  Yummy and nutritious vegetarian lunch and snacks are included. (Dietary needs catered for.)  

Babies in arms are welcome. If you need to bring someone to care for them while you enjoy the activities this can be arranged for a reduced fee. These retreat days are aimed at mums, but are open to all people, parents, non-parents, so if you'd like to bring your mum, your sister, your friend, and share the day with them they are very welcome.

The day is all about you, giving you time to relax, unwind, and restore your tranquillity.

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/vegan. I will ask for dietary requirements and try to meet them. I have brought the milk that clients requested, e.g. almond, even specific brand.
Is this just for parents?
The day has been designed for parents, but all are welcome.  
I don't drive. Is there any help to get to the venue?
