Self-Discovery Through Nature

Picture yourself immersed in breathtaking countryside. Inhaling the crisp, clean air. Feeling invigorated, body and soul. Imagine a weekend of pure relaxation where everything is taken care of. Time for you to unwind in beautiful accommodation, where nutritious meals have been prepared for you, and an array of experiences and pamper sessions perfectly planned, so all you need to think about is whether to enjoy a relaxing bubble bath or snuggle up in front of a crackling fire, serenaded by birdsong. Rewilded Retreats offers all of this, in the most idyllic location – the Peak District National Park!

Enjoy a range of tailor-made experiences to reconnect with yourself through nature, from foraging and creative workshops, to herbal and holistic therapies and pure relaxation. Delve into the Peak District’s rolling hills, freshwater rivers and enchanting caves. Be guided through therapeutic time with animals and forest bathing through the dappled sunlight of the trees.

Your hideaway for the weekend will be a 17th Century Barn in Bonsall, converted to a wonderful open plan artist’s studio, with traditional features purposefully styled for mindful living. Inside the thick stone walls you’ll find an open plan living/dining space, with a welcoming woodburning stove at its heart, perfect for snuggling in front of with a good book or a refreshing drink at the end of a relaxing day. Adjacent to the living space is a kitchen area with all essentials, and a cosy, retro bathroom just waiting for you to sink beneath the bubbles and unwind. The mezzanine bedroom is a delightful space in which to relax under the stars, and wake to morning sunshine.

Your all-inclusive package enables you to choose a Nature Connection activity and a Relaxation Therapy session, but of course, extras can be added at your choice. The Nature Connection sessions usually take around 2 hours and the therapy session 1 hour, so you will still have plenty of free time to book further sessions, such as one of the Creativity Workshops, or allow Rewilded Retreats to arrange a private picnic for you, as you spend time alone and enjoy this fabulous area.  

No need to worry about what to eat, as your all-inclusive package with Rewilded Retreats covers that too, with delicious, hearty, plant-based dishes, packed full of energy and goodness. You can choose to be provided with a hamper of fresh local and foraged ingredients with recipe cards, so you can enjoy the pleasure of cooking together, or the meals can be prepared for you by the site’s Master Forager and Sustainable Chef for you simply to warm at your leisure.

Whatever you choose to do, you are sure to leave feeling relaxed, cleansed and recharged!

Rest & Reset

Rewilded Retreat’s Rest & Reset sessions are the perfect way to completely escape the day-to-day stresses of life by connecting with nature, leaving you calm, refreshed and renewed!

Your all-inclusive weekend stay will include fabulous accommodation with a private double bedroom with catering facilities and a relaxing outdoor space, or a private dwelling. You will also be catered for with three course meals, afternoon teas and tasty snacks using fresh, local, plant-based dishes that will leave you cleansed and energised.

Rewilded Retreats will have the whole weekend planned out for you, from the moment you arrive, so you really don’t need to worry about a thing. On arrival you will meet with like-minded friends to enjoy a welcome meal before relaxing as you choose. On Saturday morning you will wake to a delicious nourishing breakfast, before enjoying replenishing mindfulness workshops and activities, scrumptious lunches and afternoon teas, finishing with supper around the fire pit with time to relax as you wish before a moonlit walk.  On the Sunday you can enjoy the same pleasures, as well as wild swimming or animal experiences, and a rewarding therapy such as a massage or reflexology treatment, before reflecting on your wonderful weekend experience.
