  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.
