About Our Retreats

Our retreats are designed to mix relaxation, healthy & delicious food and craft. Our philosophy is about getting back to nature and enjoying the simple things in life. Every retreat is different so if you have been before, there is always something new to discover and learn in future retreats. Being based in the South West, we have a network of crafts people ready to come along and share their talents, giving you an opportunity to learn something new and to make something to take away with you.


As children we often get taught at school, or by Granny, how to weave, knit, make pom-poms. When we grow up and accept adult responsibilities, we often forget all those things from our childhood which made us happy. When we try our hand at something we used to do as a child, memories  instantly make us feel comforted and relaxed. Why not come along and get in touch with your inner child...

A typical weekend retreat includes:

  • 3 healthy and delicious homemade meals (plant based) per day with additional snacks and refreshments - you won't go hungry and when we say 'healthy', there is cake!

  • A yoga and meditation/mindfulness class to help you fully relax and unwind 

  • 1 or 2 crafting workshops per day (dependent on the length of workshop)

  • Country walks with Buddy and/or Ted!

  • Free time to read, relax, play board games and explore the surroundings 


Our retreats are relaxing not restrictive. Activities are not compulsory, so if you would rather take a break for some quiet time at any point then that’s fine.

​Some of our venues have specific facilities for you to take advantage of (e.g. heated swimming pool, hot tub). Please see the individual weekend descriptions for details.  


Each weekend is unique offering different craft activities so please take a look at the individual itineraries on the booking page to ensure you find the retreat which suits you. 

Buddy & Ted look forward to welcoming you!
