The Old Rectory is a spacious house, big enough to accommodate a large number of guests, but still feels intimate and homely and luxurious. It has 12 stylish bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, two reception rooms, an elegant dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen.

Each room offers some special features that make it unique. If you would like a four-poster bed, a room with a view, a deep bathtub, or absolute peace and quiet, there is definitely a room for you. The courtyard also includes a private self-contained duplex.

In every room, you will find luxurious mattress toppers, fluffy pillows, organic cotton sheets, and extra blankets. Also, there is a tea table in every room for you to enjoy an early morning cup of tea. Most beds are king or queen size with a few available as twin rooms. There are also rooms suitable for groups of three or four friends.

The facilities include a dance barn, an infra-red sauna, and a solar-panel-heated outdoor salt water swimming pool with swim jet. There is also a croquet lawn, a children’s tree house, a games room with books and a piano, meadows for camping, and a helicopter landing area. The gym is equipped with weights machine, running machine, rowing machine, medicine balls, gym mats, and weights.

Feeling stronger and more connected to your core is life altering. On a physical level, strengthening your core improves your posture; your body begins to move in a more optimized way, meaning healthier joints, a better metabolism, and healthier digestive and reproductive organs.

On a deeper level, keeping your core fire, agni, burning brightly is your route to living with more vitality and willpower. This fire gently warms and keeps the light of your heart burning brightly. Your core conversation is between you and yourself, helping to strengthen your mind and beliefs.

Your core message is what you are expressing out into the world: the things that shake you to the core. Sometimes these conversations and messages get dull as you lose yourself in life’s challenges. With a true understanding of core integration in all that you do, you will start to move, live, feel, love, and speak differently.

During your free time, you can enjoy nurturing treatments and massages, which will allow you to relax, rest, and rejuvenate in the stunning surroundings.

Access consciousness bars

Consciousness is the art of being present in the moment without judgment. It is your true knowing without the limitations of the cognitive mind. Access bars treatments open you up to more ease, more fun, and more of you.

By gently touching 32 points on the head, energy around these begins to dissipate, releasing redundant thoughts, ideas, and beliefs. This is likened to pressing the delete button on an over-crammed hard drive full of unnecessary files. The energy used to store them up is then released for you to use for more creativity and abundance in your life.

Having an access bars treatment is a deeply relaxing and wonderful experience that can help to kick-start the shifts that you desire in your life. The cost is 50 GBP for a 60-minute session and 40 GBP for a 45-minute session.

Esalen massage

Esalen massage is based on Swedish massage but is designed to stimulate and strengthen the physical and emotional body. It is particularly renowned for the soothing effects of long lengthening strokes combined with passive joint movement. It helps to bring everything into balance while easing away stresses and tension.

High-grade organic coconut oil and essential oils for a beautiful skin treat are used during these massages. You can choose a full body massage, a neck, back, and shoulder massage, or foot and hand massage. The cost is 40 GBP for a 45-minute session.

Ultimate bliss facial

Enjoy a face, neck, head, and foot massage, in addition to a nurturing facial with a wonderful exfoliating mask. The perfect combination with amazing skin products that will have you feeling refreshed, nurtured, revived, and looking youthful. This treatment is 65 GBP for a 90-minute session and 50 GBP for a 60-minute session.
