Top escapes to relax you”

Metro

“It was really great to meet you and be inspired by the wonderful space you’ve created and to have such a laugh. I am feeling buoyant and able to cope which is marvellous! My time with you has really shored me up. I LOVED the treehouse, your personal training sessions and the hammock… and the swimming pond… and the sauna… and the food… and the croquet (who knew!)…. and the walks. It was a really good mixture of rest and activity. The accommodation was great and your knowledge of bodies and fitness was obviously incredibly useful.”
