“Be the change you want to see in the world” - Mahatma Gandhi
This was the inspiration that led then city investment analyst, Louise Chester, to create The Retreat within the grounds of Witherdens Hall, Wingham, Kent in 2004. A beautiful barn conversion in the stunning Kent countryside, The Retreat is a place to relax and recharge mind, body and soul, away from the frenetic, draining influences of modern life.
Witherdens Hall Organic Spa Retreat is not your typical hotel or B&B. Louise, founder of Mindfulness At Work Ltd, along with her husband Craig, Master Carpenter and Cabinet Maker, have created a wonderful sanctuary that they love to share with those who will enjoy being in this beautiful, peaceful and tranquil space. The Retreat Cottage and Suite accommodation are situated in the grounds of Witherdens Hall, Louise and Craig’s home, and is run as a retreat on a not-for-profit basis.
Something special happens when you visit Witherdens Hall, something almost magical and unexpected. You leave with a clearer vision and determination to shape the life you really want to live.
"Witherdens Hall has given me the serenity and peace I needed - it feels as though time has stood still whilst I have been here! It is a truly magical place with the most wonderful energy - I had reiki, reflexology, massage and a life coaching session whilst I was here - each one delivered by someone passionate about what they do which was so refreshing and in keeping with the ethos of this place. Thank you!"
Build your own Retreat experience
Guests come to Witherdens Hall for a variety of reasons. Some come for a weekend break to catch up on much needed sleep, fresh air and to explore the local area, some want a few days of pampering and others to create a bespoke restorative retreat for mind, body and soul. The affiliated Health and Beauty practitioners are of the highest calibre and help guests to relax and rejuvenate. A bespoke Personal Breakthrough Retreat allows you time to focus, without interruption, on your own personal needs, spiritual or otherwise and have been hugely successful.
Many of the guests who visit The Retreat run their own businesses and it was suggested how good it would be to take advantage of the quiet rural area to hold courses, training and meetings. Louise and Craig listened and The Workspace opened in July 2010.
Together, Louise and Craig are committed to ensuring that your time at Witherdens Hall is the best it can possibly be.
