time to reconnect 



In the midst our busy lives The Garden Retreat offers a place of peace and tranquillity where you can just be.

A space where you can catch your breath, read, meditate, sleep, day-dream. Enjoy the space outside if the weather allows, in a hammock, in a reclining chair. or curl up  beside the wood burning stove.

Whenever you need to restore harmony and balance in your life or just get away from the daily routine, enjoy The Garden Retreat, surrounded by birdsong and a peaceful ambience.
