England possesses a unique charm. It is a country where rustic barns and enchanting cottages in bucolic countryside play host to some of the UK’s most enticing and comfortable wellbeing retreats, all of which the Queen of Retreats team have reviewed in-depth with honesty and care. Find your sanctuary at an 18th-century barn conversion in Dorset on a Value Your Mind retreat, where you can reset your mind and body with a cosseting weekend fix of yoga, journalling, walks and good food. Or treat yourself to deeply cosseting Ayurveda and yoga at the beautifully restored Clover Mill in Worcestershire. Yoga on a Shoestring run luxurious yoga retreats in an Oxfordshire Manor House, or perhaps a digital detox with yoga is what you need?
Try a weekend of it at a gorgeous manor house in the historic county of Bedfordshire run by the excellent Reclaim Your Self. For meditation, there’s the excellent Sharpham House in Devon. For cleansing, try Vital Detox, a seriously effective juice fast detox retreat led by experts in expansive rural Somerset, or The Detox Barn, a lovely set-up run by two vegan comediennes in Sussex. Of course, we all need a pamper too, so for a boutique spa, book a stay at Green Farm, a delightful country retreat on a working farm in Kent with a lovely ESPA spa which also offers yoga, nutrition and art classes. Whichever you choose, a welcome dose of calm awaits all those who visit a retreat in England. Read more reviews of retreats in the UK by taking a look at our Scotland or Wales retreat collections.
