If the idea of being without your phone for three days makes you recoil in horror, it probably means you need a digital detox. If that sounds brutal, fear not because this dreamy little retreat is so idyllic that you (probably) won’t miss it. The basic premise is that at the start of your stay you give up your electronic devices (lock them in a box to be precise) and instead of mindlessly scrolling or checking emails, spend the time – three days and nights is the optimal recharge needed apparently – taking in nature, relaxing with your plus one and recharging, sans battery. The off-grid cabins are simply but perfectly equipped and are deep enough in the countryside to feel hidden, but close enough to major cities so as not to feel too isolated. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the stunning scenery and relax the old-fashioned way, and with views of fields, woods and hills it isn’t hard. 



Cold Water Wellness Retreat at the Old Course Hotel

Whether you’re a seasoned cold-water swimmer or a curious novice this fully immersive wellness experience that runs from 4th-6th May 2024 promises to be something special. Hosted by retired triple Olympian and Olympic silver medallist in the 10k open water, Keri-anne Payne, the retreat is set in and around the beautiful, rugged open water spaces of the East coast of Scotland. Suggested to support the immune system, boost mental clarity and improve stress, there’s no better way to experience cold water immersion therapy than with one of the world’s leading experts. After you’ve enjoyed a series of guided open water dips across beaches, lochs and tidal pools you can relax with spa treatments and food back at the hotel.

Reconnect at The Bothy at Heckfield Place

It’s not always easy to find a way back to yourself if you’re feeling out of sorts, but if you’re lucky enough to book a spot on this small but mighty retreat at the magical Heckfield Place, the results promise to be pretty transformative. While each retreat is completely customised to the individual and so will vary, every stay includes time with The Bothy’s resident ecopsychologist who will help root you in the rhythms of nature to begin your healing journey. As part of your four-day experience you’ll also get to set intentions, enjoy heavenly Wildsmith spa treatments and take part in nature immersion walks and cold-water therapy. 



The Big Retreat

If you’re a fan of festivals but are looking for a slightly more soul-enriching experience than muddy fields and late-night raves, bookmark The Big Retreat. Billed as an event that offers holistic wellbeing for wellness enthusiasts and anyone seeking a break from the daily hustle, the line-up of the four-day festival (it runs from 24th-27th May 2024) includes health and wellbeing speakers, yoga, meditation and mindfulness workshops and activities all designed to inspire, restore and encourage connection.

As well as Jessica’s Pilates sessions, there is yoga courtesy of Yogi Sophia Lau, a heated pool, nutritional workshops, a tennis court and 500 acres of picturesque Cotswolds countryside to lose yourself in. The ideal setting to move your body and press reset on your mind too.



Arrigo Programme

Burnout, trauma, loss, grief and exhaustion are all dealt with thoughtfully and intuitively at this expert-led healing retreat, led by biodynamic psychotherapist Fiona Arrigo and her team. That said, the nurturing, highly personalised programmes are just as effective if you’re simply looking for some quiet, quality rest or a guided timeout moment. Your plan will vary depending on whether you opt for a group retreat or a one-to-one but you can expect a blend of biodynamic medicine, breathwork, acupuncture, somatic body work and homeopathy amongst other therapies.
