Holycombe is a beautiful residential holistic retreat centre, set in a verdant wooded valley on the edge of the Cotswold village of Whichford. A natural stream rises from a holy well in the nearby wood, passes though the grounds, and down a waterfall. The sound of running water adds to the sense of peace and tranquility.
A coppice provides shady outdoor space - there’s a campfire area and a large stone circle on the castle site. Across a meadow is the ancient Whichford wood, with many rare species of trees and plants, an abundance of wood anemones, primroses, and bluebells in spring, while chestnuts, blackberries, and sloes in autumn. Wildlife abounds everything from muntjac to polecats and kingfishers.
Set in six acres, Holycombe is built in the grounds of a Norman Castle, and has a water-filled moat, habitat for carp and dragonflies. Sally and Andy Birtwell rescued the site from 40 years of being a scrap yard, dedicating six years of their life to the restoration. They have built a beautiful house and garden to honor the sacred landscape.
Archaeologists have excavated a Roman conduit carrying water from the springs in the wood to the site, and dowsers and geomancers have suggested it was a sacred site before Roman the occupation. They also believe that six ley lines converge on the stone circle.

"Just got back from the yoga retreat with Balabashka Wellness - it was really good. It was so relaxing and rejuvenating. The weekend went so fast, in fact too fast! It was a well deserved break for me and I am really glad that I signed up for it. Elena the yoga instructor was just fantastic and easy to talk to and provided additional advice on yoga poses that I struggled with. Location was beautiful and the sun was out too so that made it all the more worthwhile!"
