Set in six acres, Holycombe Holistic Retreat Centre is built on the grounds of a Norman castle and has a water-filled moat, habitat for carp and dragonflies. A large sunny space called the angel room for group activities opens out onto a terrace. On chilly days, there is a log fire. A beautiful garden room for sharing meals and rose-scented terraces for eating al fresco overlook the pond and grass tennis court.

The retreat center is a residential venue and accommodation that is available for up to 17 people in shared and single rooms with extra heated glamping spaces available and camping in bell tents or bringing your own tent. Please note that smoking indoors is not allowed. You cannot also put your outdoor shoes upstairs.

You have to be quiet after midnight and do not bring any drinks except water in the angel room or bedrooms. Use of bedroom blankets outside and rugs for outdoors in the angel room cupboards is not permitted. Lastly, you are suggested to take a shower rather than a bath. Kindly ask Holycombe before using the hot tub.

The Lodge

The Lodge is part of Holycombe Holistic Retreat Centre. It is a fully contained holiday cottage with five bedrooms. It acts as the extended accommodation for retreats. Downstairs, there is a double room (king size), a room with three single beds, a bathroom, and a sitting room. Upstairs, the lodge can sleep up to six persons.

There are two twin rooms and another double room (which also has a single bed) as well as another bathroom. There is a kitchen, but residents on retreats eat together in the conservatory, using the course kitchen in the main house, but tea and coffee can be made in the lodge kitchen.

Main House

Main House is part of Holycombe Holistic Retreat Centre. There are five bedrooms in the main house which can sleep 9 to 12 people. Those include three double bedrooms used as doubles or singles and two twin bedrooms upstairs. One of the twin bedrooms has an en-suite and there is the use of two other bathrooms for the other guests. The two twin-room beds can zip together and make doubles.

The main house also has a beautiful healing room downstairs, with an en-suite bathroom which residents may also sleep in. There is a bathroom and a shower room both upstairs and downstairs. All indoor people need to bring top and bottom sheet, pillowcase and towels. Duvets and pillows are provided for indoor accommodation.

This retreat doesn’t entail harsh regimes or fasting. You will practice yoga together, exploring physical, mental, and spiritual balance through movement and breath. You will cook and eat together learning how food can nourish your body and balance your entire self. You will reconnect with nature and with your natural self in the beautiful family run, ecological spaces that Rina Golan has carefully chosen for the retreat.

Let yourself be nourished, let yourself go inwards, and explore the places that need attention. Let yourself be accepting, gentle, and forgiving. Let yourself acknowledge that this inner work is intrinsically linked to service beyond yourself and let yourself be the change.

Yoga

Teaching yoga is a joy Rina has had the opportunity to offer guidance on the mat for the last 13 years. During the retreat, Rina Golan offers supportive, playful classes suited to beginners as well as those who have spent more time on a yogic path.

The classes focus on the liver and lymphatic system meridians using Vinyasa and Restorative yoga and breathing exercises to regenerate and support the nervous system. You will also look at companion breathing exercises to help alkalize the body and stimulate the liver function. You will finish the sessions with meditation or yoga Nidra, an ancient form of deep relaxation to set an intention and release deep tensions.

The retreat combines structure and space to just be, action and relaxation, an opportunity for learning and reconnecting, and opportunity for reflection. The retreat starts on Fridays at 16:00 (it’s okay to be late, just let Rina knows) and finishes at 15:00 on Sundays.

Holycombe is a beautiful residential holistic retreat center 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 through the grounds and down a waterfall. The sound of running water adds to the sense of peace and tranquillity.

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; chestnuts, blackberries, and sloes in autumn. Wildlife abounds, everything from Muntjack to polecats and kingfishers.
