Check-out Time:

Sanctuary Hill provides shared accommodation, with two or three guests per room. The maximum number for the groups is 10 guests. If you prefer to have a private room, they can offer you one of their double bedrooms during your stay.

Their modern luxury bedrooms are equipped with 100% cotton linen and towels. They also have an option for couples to accommodate in a king-size bedroom. 

They invite their guests to unwind: take a walk, explore the property, read a book from their library, journal, connect with nature and wildlife, and relax in the hot tub.


In these four days, you are warmly held in a space that allows you to feel safe in your body and being. Letting fears and contractions unwind and return to a natural flow. Sharing this unfolding with amazing women from which you can learn and grow. Surrounded by nature, your being naturally unwinds and opens, revealing your essence and greater wisdom.


On Saturday, you will be invited to step into the art of ritual talk. Rituals mark life's momentous and symbolic events from special birthdays and holidays to personal affairs such as a child's first day of school or the death of a beloved pet. Over time and as people and circumstances change, some rituals become merely habitual, losing their significance and creating a hunger for more meaningful methods of celebration.

You will explore the power, relevance, and need for ritual. It is for committed and soul-centered women who want to fully step into their light and live into their highest.

Sanctuary Hill also has a special guest in a Women's Health Workshop, Emma Perks will be sharing her wisdom. She is the creator and leading force behind Full Circle Physiotherapy and specializes in musculoskeletal and pelvic health.

​On Monday, you will gather in a women's circle in an intimate space to learn new ways of speaking and listening. It is a space where you can discover and integrate the freshness of the woman you are becoming. You gather together as equals united by the same purpose of creating a container of truth-telling, sacred witnessing, healing, and transformation.

If you are feeling more invited to rest back and enjoy the view, you can relax in their various outdoor areas to bask in nature.
