We will be joined again by the Beechen family caterers, Bob and Kathy who along with Becky will be cooking up more of her much loved, homemade vegetarian treats.

Each of our Retreats has a theme running though the weekend and the theme this time will be Ayurveda and the Doshas.

At our last Retreat we made the video below to show you what it's like to be on a Retreat with us.



More Information

The Court Hill Centre is delightfully rural and tranquil, located in the Vale of the Whitehorse in Wantage, Oxfordshire. Surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful countryside, it is the perfect place to unwind and escape the stresses of everyday life. 


Accommodation at this venue is in traditional bunkhouse style. There are two sizes of dormitory; 4 bed and 12 bed. There is one 12 bed dorm, available to women only. The 4 bed dormitories have two bunk beds and can be booked for 3/4 if you are travelling in a group. Single occupancy rooms are also available. The accommodation is basic, and all rooms have access to shared bathroom facilities. Bedding is provided, but you will need to bring your own towel.

The Court Hill Centre is 2 miles south of Wantage just off the A338 Wantage to Hungerford road, and ¼ mile from the Ridgeway National Trail.
