Our Team

Our amazing team of chefs have a passion for food, so much so they take it upon themselves not only to provide top quality healthy food to people day in and day out, but also to educate our guests on the benefits of a vegan diet. 

Most chefs end up on a path of indulgence, a world away from nutrition and wellbeing.

Our team are different. They are at the forefront of a healthy living revolution and experts in plant-based lifestyles.  

For generations, society has been eating processed foods, full of salt, sugar, and fat. 

But people are waking up. The health fallout of poor diets cannot be denied.

Our team have been on a mission to help people lead healthier lives, and now, at Glass House Retreat, you can learn from them.

Daily we receive a delivery of fresh local produce— our first choice is organic too. From this, they will create for you, exciting, nutritious, calorie-controlled plant-based meals.

It’s your kickstart to a healthy diet and lifestyle, which you can take beyond the Glass House.

Fresh juices


Brunch is a delicious mid-morning or mid-afternoon meal that will satisfy both your sweet and savoury palate. Whether you fancy a late breakfast or a little something after lunch, our talented chefs bring together the best of both worlds to offer a vegan taste sensation, beautifully presented and thoughtfully indulgent.

  My happy place!

I have been to this retreat twice in two months. Once for an overnight stay and once for a day. I cannot rate this place high enough, it is exactly what you need when you just need that time to slow down, relax, refresh and focus on your wellbeing for a bit. A fantastic place for trying new things be that exercise/classes, mindfulness, cryotherapy or natural ponds. It’s my happy place and I’m already booking another stay for the summer.

  Relaxed, content, and revitalised!

Fantastic place - this is my second visit to the glass house retreat, and I can’t wait to go back! Never did I think it could exceed the first time, but it did! I took part in more classes, I bonded with other people staying at the retreat, and really embraced all the lovely vegan food. The staff can’t do enough for you and are ever so friendly.

  What an amazing experience, I feel rejuvenated!

Loved every bit of my experience. My body started detoxing after first meal. Variety of meals, made from scratch and prepped on the day, fresh and super tasty. Lots of great activities throughout the day for you to get involve with, everything clean with great amenities.

We went for Swedish massage and it was pure bliss our therapist was amazing.

We stayed for 2 nights and it was so much fun. You will be seeing us very soon again simply because you cannot get enough of this place.

  Amazing, fabulous, Incredible.

This place is hands down the best Spa retreat I’ve ever had the pleasure to visit. Staff very welcoming and efficient. Flawless checkin and super organized. Food was phenomenal so delicious. Exceptionally clean. Beautifully decorated. So much to do, or do nothing and relax. Whatever you need they have it. They really have thought of everything. Amazing place located in country with great views. Loved loved loved it.

  Our stay

Had a lovely time at the glasshouse retreat with my parents. The grounds are lovely and the staff are amazing! They made us feel at home and we had everything we needed there. The wellness team were absolutely amazing and they were always at hand to help - big shout out to Dot, Rhiannon and Ted who is the chef there but also does cooking demos. The food was all delicious and a great variety to choose from whether you want to do juice fasts or eat healthier meals. 

  The best retreat ever!

I had a lovely experience here with my mum for a girls weekend! We joined almost every class/session; meditation, sound baths, food demo, dance class, introduction to taro, Pilates, cycling, morning walks.

This is really the best spot to relax and unwind. There are lots of spa treatments available, we tried the cryotherapy which was very cold but also completely alleviated my muscle stiffness!

The food in the retreat is all plant-based and I loved that there was so many dishes to choose from. I would definitely visit again, and perhaps bring my whole family next time.
