Holycombe will be the perfect setting for this retreat. 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; chestnuts, blackberries, and sloes in autumn. Wildlife abounds: everything from Muntjack to polecats and kingfishers.

There are five bedrooms all together. Upstairs there is a double-bedded room with kitchenette, two twins beds, and bathroom with bath or shower. Downstairs there is a double-bedded room, one twin-bedded room, and another bathroom with bath or shower. There is a cozy sitting room with log fire and an attractive tiled kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and under-counter oven and electric hob, and all necessary utensils.

The kitchen french windows open out on the south facing patio, and beautiful view. Although the house sleeps 10, it is most comfortable with six to eight guests as the kitchen and sitting room are not huge. Guests are asked to bring there own top and bottom sheets, pillow cases, and towels unless they are travelling from abroad, and then Holycombe will supply them for a small extra charge. The house is centrally heated and there is abundant hot water.

Over the weekend, you will consider what well-being really is. Rejuvenate, regenerate, and cleanse your body and mind on a holistic retreat! You will be given vital, new information on nutrition, mineral supplements, and superfoods. You will learn breathing technique which alkalizes the body, supports and stimulates the liver, and balances your emotions.
