Exmouth Beach Retreat

De-stress, review and rejuvenate

“Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
Maya Angelou

Exmouth Beach Retreat (1-5 May 2023)

Sometimes we can’t see the wood for the trees.

We forget who we are inside of our duties to others.  We get overwhelmed. We know we have great lives fundamentally, but we are often just too busy to appreciate them.

If you are looking to rebuild your ability to de-stress, to live more consistently with what is important to you and get back in touch with who you are, this retreat is for you.


1st to the 5th May 2023


From 4pm on 1st and leave at 10am on 5th


On the beach in Exmouth


£995 for a double room most with a sea view, single occupancy. £795 per person for a shared room. (limited availability of shared rooms with 2 single beds) Price includes meals and most activities.

About the Retreat

You know you work too hard. 

We exist in a world which operates at breakneck speed.

A world where many of us have work we really care about – as well as perhaps children, elderly parents and sometimes  health problems ourselves. With home admin, a social life and perhaps studying too – and it can be overwhelming. And, sometimes in life we have difficult choices to make.

You know you are someone who gets a sense of purpose through looking after others and from your work but that it can be too much.  You know you deserve and need a break. A break where you can reset, recharge and get inspired again.  A break where you can come up with some better ways to balance self-care and service in the future.

This stunning location with spectacular sea views from most of the bedrooms will be your perfect reset location – cold water, walking barefoot and gut friendly (but delicious) food are three of the most powerful resources we have for our mental health, together with connecting with others, sleep, relaxation and trying new things!

Clear your mind to the sound of the sea; think about ways to move forward with greater empowerment and joy whilst gazing at a mesmerising view from the hot tub. Spend precious time alone or connect with others on a similar journey to yours.

Find respite care for elderly folk, ask partners to care for children, put the dog in doggy day care – you know you need and deserve this!

The Structure of the Retreat

There are 12 places on this retreat.  Most of the spaces are in single occupancy for gorgeous sea view double bedrooms (£995), but there are a small number of shared rooms at a slightly lower rate. (Note some of the bedrooms have shared bathrooms).

It will be four nights of relaxation, rejuvenation and new experiences.  With plenty of time for you to chat, occupy the hot tub or the pool, curl up with a book or do some water sports, interspersed with some fun but mind expanding activities such as Fiona Coffey’s normally Brighton based “tea and tarot”.

We won’t be over managing you, because transformation and connection happen by the fireside in the quiet moments by the sea and over dinner, finding new things to appreciate and new perspectives to consider.

Meet new people or bring a friend (there are two bedrooms with two single beds in them).
