          A quirky spa with wonderful staff, set in a beautiful garden. Attention to our personal needs was superb. I would suggest having a look at the menu when booking, as there are picnic baskets and high teas which need to be pre-booked.

          This place is amazing. My partner and myself were at a desperate point of burn out and would rather sleep than do anything else. The fact that they go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable helps you relax and take in each others presence. Just pause amd remember why you fell in love in the first place and do it all over again. Thank you to all the ladies at Hands on retreat
