I booked a last-minute weekend stay at Witherdens Hall when I was looking to escape London for a peaceful retreat and some enforced relaxation. Being just 50 minutes from London on the train, Witherdens was a perfect choice and easy to get to on a Friday evening.
Set around beautiful gardens the Retreat, Work Space and Chill Space (where I stayed) provided a lovely tranquil setting. I spent the weekend swimming in the heated pool, sitting in the great infra red sauna (with my kindle), sitting in the garden and walking in the surrounding countryside.
The 3D massage and visualisation by Ben Barrett was brilliant, as was the reiki facial by Marilyn (who lives on the site). My time with both therapists was very enlightening.
The owner Louise was very welcoming and it was great to hear about her journey to starting The Retreat. A weekend at Witherdens was the perfect retreat from corporate life and I will definitely go back.
