Our website is in transition: Adam's Thai massage making way for Adam and Rachael's retreat space.  The new pages are grouped in their own menu.  Some of the old pages are out of date, however I will resume Thai massage once we no longer have to wear masks.

Rachael and Adam welcome you to our “retreat space”, a tranquil and loving haven for people to take a break from everyday life.  We hope that guests will love the beautiful, peaceful natural environment, using their time here for spiritual practice, contemplation or just to ‘unplug’ and reflect on the important aspects of life.

There are many retreat centres offering a structured programme to groups.  We chose the more unusual title of a retreat space to emphasise that we offer a supportive environment and more of a blank canvas.  Each person can create their own programme based on their interests and experience. We don't normally offer formal teaching. However we can guide those who aren't used to retreats.

We welcome anyone with a sincere interest in taking some form of personal retreat.  Our community is based on love, respect, well-being and changing lives for the better.  We aim to nourish nature, increase our self-sufficiency and contribute to society.  We are open to people from any spiritual tradition or none, simply asking that you respect the beliefs and perspectives of those alongside you.

Daily Life

Guests share our house and join our simple, productive life with less internet and no TV, alcohol or meat.  A typical day includes:

  • contemplation, meditation or prayer
  • yoga poses or other exercise for physical health
  • "Karma Yoga": helping with household tasks such as cleaning, cooking, gardening, DIY
  • walking or enjoying nature.
