St. Dorothy's Retreat is a magical get away place. It has a warm and comfortable house with all modern facilities in a setting of timeless and unspoilt beauty.  Available to book the  whole house or part of it for your time to recharge and unwind. Special events, classes and workshops can be created for your  bespoke stay and enjoyment or you may hire the venue to host your own Holistic or creative  workshops subject to suitability. No enquiry will be dismissed without due consideration as, timing and availability will vary with the seasons, local demand for accommodation and the families needs. The owners of this very special place are looking to build relationships with people that are mutually beneficial and create positive energy and well- being. St Dorothy was the patron saint of Horticulture, Growers and Florists and this land was dedicated to her in the 60s. It is the families desire that they build on their parents wonderful legacy by creating and sharing  space for renewal and personal growth and development.


From river banks with  waterfalls, to greenhouses boasting lemon trees and huge bunches of grapes in the summer, St Dorothy's is a place that has a time capsule quality about it. It evokes feelings of nostalgia and a sense of ancestors and lost generations. It stimulates magical thinking and creative rushes.  It's sounds and smells and colours  reverberate on your senses and you cannot fail to  enjoy fresh inspiration and renewal.

Without leaving the property, you can take a stroll, read a book, write an epic novel, capture the moment with a camera or brush and be at one with nature.
