Your Host

About Charlotte Wickins ICPKP EMBA

A professional holistic wellbeing practitioner, solo-mum (daughter now 25!) lover of the great outdoors, the sea, living an intuitive, balanced life.

A passion for cooking from scratch, tasty, nutritious food. I also love to help people slow down, listen-in, to feel better about themselves.

Lesser known facts:
- sailed from New Zealand to the UK - it took all my courage to face my fears.
- studied 1,200 hours Kinesiology, to help heal myself, my mother and be a better solo parent.
- created a Holistic Wellbeing Centre filled with practitioners, but my lack of boundaries, meant I burned-out in the process!

I always wanted somewhere nourishing, healing and inspirational to go to. To de-stress, relax, have some fun and recharge my batteries – now I have created it at home!

Testimonials 2022

With Gratitude!

I had an incredible, restful stay at Charlotte's. It was an amazing respite to spend some time by myself reading and walking, whilst being in such an amazing location with a wonderful host. Charlotte made the best wholesome food, was amazing at massage and had the best stories. I feel privileged to have stayed, would wholly recommend to anyone who needs some RandR.
Santino - London

Charlotte is a wonderful host. Excellent company when you need it but respectful of your privacy if you need complete quiet. The house is cosy, in an amazing location, I thoroughly enjoyed the coastal walks as well as being snuggled up with a good book. She has a wealth of knowledge regarding wellness. I was looking to step away from the daily pressures, I feel rested and nourished.

Let the Healing begin...

Charlottes retreat is absolutely wonderful. A complete 1 to 1 time for oneself, either totally alone or with company. Charlotte offers quiet support, safety and comfort, nourishment and love through the way she offers so many options of how to spend your time there. From holistic treatments to good food, an extremely comfortable bed, warmth, and a view with a chair to just die for. In fact, the chair is the perfect place to just sit, rejuvenate, recall, plan ahead, visualise, meditate, read, smile and cry. Definitely a space to relax, rewind and recover. Highly recommend.
Fiona (Ireland)
Beautiful location to rest, enjoy nature and quiet. Charlotte was fabulous - great communication, and joyful - she prepared lovely meals as well. Highly recommended.

From the car park - there is an even path leading up to front of the house, allowing for bags with wheels to be easily transported. The Guest Room is on the first floor up a flight of stairs. The bathroom is opposite the Guest Room. To make the most of the space, and the location, guests must be able to climb stairs easily.

Eco Practices

The new duvet and pillows are made from recycled materials.
I support the circular economy so most furniture is either antique, second-hand, upcycled or recycled.
Organic food is used where possible and my waste composted.
Cleaning materials are chosen and considered 'clean' for their impact on the planet and sustainability.
There are no street lights here and the night skies are a spectacle on a clear night, we respect the wildlife and birdlife and expect you to respect them too.

Guests are booked on a first come, first serve basis, and bookings are usually limited to 3 or 4 guests a month.
