healing waters lakeside retreat in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire

uniquely magical 3 night retreat under the stars on the shores of a beautiful swimming lake

13 - 16 September 2024

disconnect. . .  bathe in silence and soulful tenderness

step into the mystical healing energy of the forest and lake waters to wash away all that is ready to be released.

Settled by the lakeside in your own luxury yurt this is a place for reflection, slow living and intimate connection with nature. With a feeling of being far from modern life and all its pressures. Free to unwind you can rediscover and gather to you the lost parts of you, let go things you may have been carrying both known and unknown. 


This abundantly feminine landscape reminds us of our own ever changing nature as dawn sparkles her reflection on the water and dusk falls quietly around the trees in its comforting cloak. Peace and birdsong, nature and quietening. Time to you.

Journey through guided circles, gentle movement and meditation into your heart's sacred whispers

the details

Space is limited to a maximum of 8 so our gatherings will be soft, intimate and with plenty of room to come just as you are. In the cocoon of the private woodland, trails meander to individual and very spacious yurts. Each is exquisitely designed with hotel standard beds and bedding, its own log burner and outside fire pit. You may have a neighbour or two somewhere nearby, but you will feel that the space is entirely yours when you want it. All yurts face the water and are steeped in the grounded energy of the trees.


With all food and drink provided, you can join our shared table for meals, but you also have your own woodland mini-kitchen where you can store treats, your favourite teas and even take your breakfast if you wish to make the most of solitude within the container of a loving group.

"Thank you for all your warmth, generosity and humanity; for creating such a beautiful and nurturing experience and for all your care and tender holding of us. I feel altered by this past few days in a way that escapes my thinking mind. I will cherish the memories and hold them in my heart as a safe still centre to return to." Val
