Monks Hatch

Self Guided Retreat Package

This listing is for a fully catered self-guided retreat package for up to 4 adults.  You're welcome to also include up to 2 children (<12 yrs) if you're happy for them to sleep on the (beautiful) sofa bed in one of the bedrooms.

Self-guided retreats are fully catered with wholesome food organically-grown & wild-foraged on this land, freshly prepared by our retreat chefs to nourish you from the inside out. They also include daily transformational experiences influenced and inspired by the divine wisdom of nature. Plus, thoughtful touches - art supplies, yoga mats, swim towels and meditation tracks birthed from this land. Our experienced retreat hosts will support you to create a schedule bespoke to you - whether you’re seeking transformational experiences or to simply rest and restore in nature.

Our 13th-century Hermitage has long been a sacred space. It’s been consciously restored using sustainable, locally sourced, natural materials and sympathetic methods, and is powered 100% by renewable energy. Inside you’ll find understated luxury and timeless simplicity. Real fires, natural light, soft touches and far-reaching views down to our 7-acre lake. The result is a cosy, nurturing sanctuary that offers peace, and calm.

Meals are served in the beautifully light dining room. Please feel free to join other guests at the long, living-edge table - designed to inspire conversation & connection. Or, to dine separately at either inside or on the lawn. If you are staying for more than 1 night, lunch will also be included - you are welcome to eat inside, or ask for a blanket and picnic in your favourite spot on the land. Unlimited tea and coffee are available 24/7 in the dining room.

You're welcome to use the spacious group room and cosy snug with real fires and expansive views across our regenerative estate and down to the lake.

Monk's Hatch

This beautifully-converted period property offers light, spacious living space on the ground floor and two ensuite, king bedrooms on the first floor. One of the bedrooms has a double sofa bed and you are welcome to bring up to 2 children (aged >12) within the self-guided retreat package.

The main living space is sociably open plan. It features a comfortable lounge area and kitchen with a large island and breakfast bar. All fixtures are high quality. Original features have been preserved and there are details throughout to surprise and delight.

Outside you'll find a private dining area, plus a private electric vehicle charger.

The building has far-reaching views over 42 Acres' regenerative estate, and you're welcome to explore our 173 acres of wild spaces, including ancient woodland, rewilded meadows, edible hedges, a lake suitable for wild swimming & an abundance of wildlife.
