Weekend Retreats

We live in a village called Kington Magna in a beautiful part of North Dorset, close to Gillingham (Dorset) & Shaftesbury with the very beautiful view across the Blackmore Vale from Gold Hill, the stunning scene for a well known advertisement for Hovis. Many people have asked us if we could share our home with like minded people who wished to come on a simple, rural retreat in a peaceful haven, with no pavements, no street lights and best of all no light pollution. Our rush hour is 3 horses & a tractor!


Our home is not quite big enough to have people to stay but during the summer we can accommodate people in our garden if they are happy to live in a tent and go back to nature!

Alternatively our local pub is very close by and very clean and comfortable. We are happy to be available to work support each person over the time they are with us to help them relax in front of the fire, chill, de stress and think about where they would like to go with their life and their spiritual path or to just be. This can include beautiful walks to see the most breath taking views and scenes around North Dorset or if you really can’t sit still we can go out to the National Trust houses and gardens at Stourhead or Montacute house and gardens which are a short drive away and well worth a visit. The choice would be yours as to how you would like to spend your time. Silence and just sitting is always a very beautiful option.

If you are looking at a place to come to chill and destress then this is the place.

John and I have a huge amount of experience so together we can offer you a wonderfully relaxed, happy and very fulfilling time during your retreat with us.

Cost – £150 per person for 2 days, including lunch and all our time at your disposal.
