"I received a 2 night stay at Witherdens Hall in Kent as a gift from the charity STLFT. This gift reminded us that life can and should go on! Even though I am living with cancer it doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy the time we do have together as a family. I felt I had more energy after we stayed at Witherdens and was pleased that I had actually taken myself away from home to spend some time with my husband.

Our stay at Witherdens Hall in Kent was the most relaxing and comforting experience, helped by an amazing Reiki treatment. I could have stayed longer and I cannot thank the people there enough who were so kind and helpful to us. I absolutely loved my time there. Thank you."

"My husband and I stayed for two nights and the only improvement I could mention is that I could’ve happily stayed longer!

It’s been a tough two years and to arrive into such a relaxing and comfortable setting with everyone so caring and helpful was a joy.

My Reiki treatment was amazing, the info on local activities was great and the accommodation was lovely. I loved our stay there and hope to return."

"It’s lovely to hear from you and we absolutely did enjoy our stay with you. You’re all so welcoming, warm & friendly and that includes Daisy & Ziggy! 

The room was lovely and we had everything we needed and more. Pat really enjoyed using the sauna and we thought the treatment room was great. The therapists were excellent, each one gave us a real 1-1/personalised experience and despite being presented with two incredibly stressed people! they helped us to leave ready to face the world again with bundles of calm, hopeful energy"

“We had a wonderful week at The Retreat, Witherdens Hall, Wingham. Communication from start to finish was good and responses to my messages were answered very quickly. The Retreat was clean, comfortable and very welcoming and I love the fresh flower arrangement when we arrived. Our accommodation was well equipped and had a dishwasher and washing machine making our stay so much easier. The location of Witherdens Hall was perfect for visiting Ramsgate, Broadstairs, Whitstable, Sandwich and Canterbury which are all within 20 minutes’ drive away. I will certainly recommend The Retreat to our family and friends and we will definitely come back one day soon. Louise and Claire made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived and we couldn’t have asked for better hosts.”

“Lovely place to stay. Louise and her staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed feeding the chickens our vegetable peelings and eating their eggs. Also made the acquaintance of Daisy and Ziggy, the resident dogs, who enjoy tummy rubs and ear scratching.”

“I was looking for a getaway from the city life and from busy working schedules and I am so glad I found Witherdens Hall. I stayed there for a full week and it was absolutely lovely. The second I arrived and stepped into the Suite, I felt at home. You have all the facilities you'd need for self-catered accommodation, the place was very clean and welcoming, there are plenty books to read on a lazy afternoon as well! The surroundings of Wingham are beautiful and so worth exploring, not to mention all the lovely animals one can meet in the area! I would also recommend booking some treatments that are advertised on Witherdens Hall website for those looking for a bit of extra self-love. Absolutely amazing experience overall, big thank you to the hosts, I will certainly be going back”

I absolutely had the most amazing and relaxing stay at Witherdens Hall, I wake up these past days thinking that maybe I am somehow still there, as it was so lovely. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to meet, but I am sure, I will be visiting in the future and so hopefully can say proper hello then 

The place is absolutely amazing, and I will recommend to anyone who is looking for a similar experience. I even ordered some books that were in the Suite, because I started reading them and didn’t get to finish. So thank you for the inspiration!  I also recommend to guide your guests to do an experience at Wingham Wilderness Park – I did a tiger experience there and it was so so great! They have plenty more, to fit all ages and price levels, so just a little tip, what to suggest to future guests 

Thank you all so much for your hospitality and kindness and I am hoping to see you all soon again!

“Lovely cottage with everything we needed and super comfy beds! The hosts were very kind and accommodating and went out of their way to make this a great week away. Fantastic location for exploring all the coastal towns. We look forward to returning in the spring/summer!”

“We have just returned from our third visit (four nights) at Witherdens Hall and have booked to go again. It’s a very relaxed place with everything we need to unwind. Because of the current situation, we took our own breakfast and dinner and ate lunch out. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped with fridge, freezer, dishwasher and oven/microwave. The lounge area is comfortable too.
Wingham is a great location for that part of Kent as you can go to Folkestone, Deal, Sandwich, Margate, Broadstairs, Whitstable and Canterbury all very easily. Every day there are lovely choices of these very different seaside towns. Plus it's in the country so there are lots of country walks - and two farm shops nearby if your supplies need topping up.
Huge thanks to Louise, Claire, Marilyn, Gary and all the team for their hard work and lovely hospitality.”

“Really enjoyable, very welcoming. Lovely spot in the countryside to relax, peaceful and quiet yet really well placed to explore so much of what Kent has to offer”
