Testimonial May 2022

Time-out just for ME!

I felt the Retreat was enlightening. I came to it as part of an emotional healing process and some time-out, was exactly what I needed.

I immediately felt comfortable around Charlotte (which is not something easy for me), she offers a safe place to open up, explore your feelings and connect with nature and with yourself.

I came back rejuvenated, rested and happier with my life and with a new approach towards the future.

The scenery is lovely and peaceful and the house is cosy and welcoming. I would definitely recommend to anyone trying to connect with their feelings and themselves and would love to come back myself.

About Charlotte Wickins ICPKP EMBA

A professional holistic practitioner, solo-mum (my daughter now 24!) lover of the great outdoors, the sea, finding balance in life.

With a passion for cooking tasty, nutritious food, I also love to help people listen-in, heal, to feel better about themselves.

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

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

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 R&R.
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 and feel rested and nourished.

Kindness Goes A Long Way...

I had an exceptional stay at Charlotte's. She went above and beyond to ensure my health and well-being needs were met. I cannot be more grateful for her innovative idea of a personal retreat. Charlotte was very easy to talk to, full of wisdom. She gave very clear instructions for the most beautiful walks. I highly recommend.
Charlotte is the perfect host. I managed to travel up in the middle of storm Eunice, all thanks to her kindness and tenacity to support me in getting there. She picked me up from the station and had a gorgeous cake waiting when I arrived in from the cold. She was flexible with my diet and it was delicious every time. She was there for a chat when need be and gave me space and silence for my mediation practices, the balance was just right.

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.
Casey (Jerusalem)

International Guests


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.
