Rewild & Restore at our wellbeing retreat this summer

Rewild & Restore at our wellbeing retreat this summer
Eve Dunlop

As the re-socialisation of the population begins and we quickly approach the unlock down date of June 21st (it’s only a month away!!!) some of you may be experiencing what we can only equate to pre-race jitters...
It’s been A LOT to cope with, and we’ve all struggled in different ways, now the end is in sight and it’s really real, all that hugging and dancing and socialising we’ve dreamed of for so long feels a little bit overwhelming.

So, we thought what's needed is some sort of 'unlocking' therapy, some rite of passage (and pampering) to get us safely through the portal of this reality and reborn into the next, limbered up, sparkling and rejuvenated, ready to face the world…

Rewild & Restore

Luckily Sarah has come up with the perfect space to do just that; a luxury overnight wellbeing retreat to rewild & restore before midsummer.

This June, join us for a blissful two days of relaxation and pampering in the luxurious surroundings of Elmore Court. A chance to give back to yourself and get back to nature with a spot of wild swimming, yoga sessions, delicious treatments and long walks through the re-wilded area of the estate.

Here’s what you can look forward to:
