Some questions answered you may have…
What should I bring?
Bring clothes you are comfortable and warm in. You may like a change of clothes for dinner in the evening
During the outdoor part of the retreat we are having a campfire, therefore you might like to bring a camping chair to sit on.
All other campfire equipment will be provided
You will need to bring some extra money if you would like to drink alcohol during your stay or for if you have booked a spa treatment.
What should I wear?
Something comfy. Our weekend will be wonderfully relaxing and care-free.
We will be in nature for many of the activities so please make sure you bring warm clothes – I recommend a base layer, a long sleeve top, a fleece and a waterproof coat as minimum. We’re in the UK so a hat and gloves are essential just in case
Please avoid jeans and they do not dry easily and are very uncomfortable when wet.
Wellies, walking boots or sturdy trainers are best.
We will be having a campfire so please bring clothes you don’t mind smelling of smoke.
You will want a change of clothing for the evenings.
Bring your swimming costume too if you want to make use of the spa!
Is food included?
Yes! For breakfast and dinner you will be eating off the restaurants set menu which they will devise especially for us. You can see examples of the restaurant’s menus here. (Please note this is subject to change) You will be asked upon booking if you have any dietary requirements. For lunch we will be making a campfire lunch. Homemade cake and hot drinks during the day are also provided.
Evening drinks and alcohol are not included in the price of the retreat.
Where should I park?
There is parking available at the venue.
Do you cater for special dietary requirements?
Yes, we will ask for any dietary requirements after booking. We will do our very best to accommodate.
Where is the nearest train station?
The nearest train station is Guiseley. This station is about a 10 minute car journey from the retreat venue. I can provide phone numbers for taxis if you require this.
The hotel is within easy access of Leeds, Bradford, York and Harrogate as well as the M1, and Leeds Bradford Airport.
Is there phone reception?
Yes, and Wifi. Although we will be discouraging the use of phones so that people can spend the time relaxing, enjoying me-time and leaving the stresses of life behind.
Of course you may bring your phone but please respect other people if they would like quiet.
Can I have my own room?
Yes. All rooms will be for single occupancy. They are all en-suite.
Is every activity compulsory or can I opt out if I want some down-time?
You can be involved in as much or as little as you like. This is your weekend.
All the workshops have been designed to be creative, informative and fun but are also independent of each other so you will not miss out if you’d rather sit one out.
Is alcohol allowed?
Yes, but please do not bring your own. The hotel has a bar and you may also order alcohol with dinner.
