Sam Ready from the glossy InsideKent magazine experiences a wonderful wellbeing day retreat at Stede Court. As a winter retreat we included outdoor circuits, yoga in front of the fire, mindfulness in the treehouse, meditation, setting 2024 intentions and of course log fired sauna and cold plunge in the swimming pond!

“The year of yes….in a triumphant hoorah for practising what you preach iK editor Sam Ready said a big ‘yes!’ to a wellbeing day retreat with the aim of resetting health ass a top priority for 2024. An outdoor swimming pond dip in -2 degrees temperatures later (eek) and the journey is nothing short of miraculous.
Like many my last year has been full of work / life / health unbalance and a real want and need to start being just a little more calm, balanced, mindful and healthy, so it was with a real trepidation but genuine curiosity that I embarked on the countryside jaunt to Kathryn’s grade 2 listed home come retreat, Stede Court.
My retreat was so much more than an article in a magazine or a half ars*d attempt to push myself out of my comfort zone. In fact, it was, and still is, the start of a profound journey into self-care and rejuvenation.
Kathryn’s commitment to health, sustainability and intentional living shines through every detail, making it a standout destination for those seeking a transformative escape. Stede Court’s retreats are more than a getaway; they’re a step towards a healthier, more balanced life; perhaps something you too can say yes to this year. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
