Lisa runs the most amazing workshops to help women find their purpose and break free from the story that’s been holding them back! Lisa will be joining us all weekend and leading you through a intimate storytelling session followed by a vision board creative session outside on the Deck under the oak trees! (Ow yeah!)

Meet Emma

Emma is a gorgeous soul and incredible Holistic Therapist – I can’t wait for her to share her gifts with you all! Emma’s also a Kundalini Teacher and a dear, dear friend of mine. You will be treated to one of Emma’s famous holistic & intuitive facials over the weekend in our private zen den treatment room – think candles, crystals, and essential oils – I know, dreamy! Talk about luxury ladies!

Meet Hayley

Hayley is a breath-taking Sacred Sound Healer working with both the Gongs and Crystal Singing Bowls – it’s just out of this world! Hayley is also a Wim Hof Method Instructor (Super cool!) and Yoga Teacher – so you’ll find Hayley incorporates her healing and powerful breath-work into her sacred sound healing workshop – if you’ve never experienced crystal bowls, you’re in for a real divine treat!

[The venue]

Ahh, this venue in Cumbria will take your breath away from the moment you arrive. Set in 14 acres of woodland and blooming flowers, these newly renovated five star cottages combine exceptional quality and luxury with character and charm. Just wait until you wake up to the sound of the birds!


I have rented out the WHOLE premises (3 cottages, gardens and terrace) for us to enjoy completely – there will be no one in sight, but us gorgeous women sharing this divine experience together!


The cottages each have their own kitchen, relaxing spaces, outdoor spaces and incredible views of the countryside. You’ll feel relaxed and completely at home from the second you walk through the door – I just know you’ll be blown away!


As you scroll down this web page you’ll be able to find out more about your luxury en-suite accommodation.


For specific address details, please scroll down to the ‘Travel Details’ section. The venue is easy to find, with free parking and great transport links too!

✓ Luxury rooms


✓ Natural Day light with wonderful views (each room varies slightly)

✓Indoor fireplace (most likely we wont light the fires, but they give the place a gorgeous rustic, cosy feel!)

I’ve worked closely with my incredible Chef Paula to design a menu that will energise you, refresh you, but also fill you up!

[Saturday Night Sacred Cacao Ceremony followed by Vegan BBQ]

On Saturday evening I’ve planned a super special celebration for us all. We’ll meet on the Deck outside where you’ll be invited into our Sacred Cacao Ceremony led by myself (Alice.)

This is a divine Cacao Ceremony inspired by my time in Bali. Ceremonial cacao is known as ‘the food of the Gods’ and a natural heart opener. The divine chocolatey magic opens your heart and allows you to raise your vibration in a soft, gentle way – bringing you closer to your truth.

Expect singing, dancing and sacred time together around the fire as the sun sets over the hills. This will be a special evening of sisterhood and deep connection with self.

Following the ceremony we’ll enjoy a vegan BBQ  whilst overlooking luscious Cumbrian countryside listening to amazing music!

There will be a range of wonderful surprises throughout the weekend but I’ll keep some of the details a surprise!

[Intuitive Facial Treatment]

Ahhh, now it wouldn’t be a Retreat without a luxurious crystal treatment would it?!


Throughout the weekend you will have a private facial treatment with our incredible Holistic Therapist Emma.

This will be a mini facial treatment using intuitive touch and crystal energy. Including a deep cleanse, exfoliation to rid dead skin cells, healing deep tissue massage, working on pressure points on the face, neck and scalp and of course lymphatic draining techniques.


This will be a relaxing and magical experience reducing stress and the effects it has on the skin. (All treatments, workshops and classes are included in the price, no extra cost.)

[Sacred Sound Healing]

Over the weekend you will also enjoy a unique Sacred Sound Session with the crystal healing bowls outdoors surrounded by the trees – dreamy!

As you snuggle down on your mat the healing vibrations of the gong and crystal bowls will ripple through you, cleansing your aura, lifting your vibration and re-setting your nervous system – remember we can only handly in life what our nervous system can handle!


We’re excited for you to experience Hayley’s magic for this rare opportunity of outdoor sound healing!

[Work with the healing energy of herbs and create your own smudge wand]

For the first time at our retreats we will be working with the healing energy of plants and herbs. I’ve been working with plants in my own spiritual practise for years and their magic continues to surprise, heal and raise my vibration in ways I didn’t know possible. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about how to make your own sage wand using a selection of herbs and divine flowers.


This will be an opportunity for you connect deeper to Mother Earth, nature’s finest remedies and create something to take home with you as you carry on your healing journey. This will be a workshop led by myself and I can’t wait to get witchy with you!

What if I’m coming to the Retreat alone?

Great! I’ve been to many events like this – some alone and some with friends and what I find is that by the end of the event, I’ve met so many wonderful friends. Myself and the rest of the retreat team will be there to welcome you and introduce you to everyone – trust me, as soon as you’ll arrive you’ll feel right at home!


What if I can’t arrive until late Friday evening?

I know that some people wont be able to arrive until later in the evening due to work or family commitments. Take your time, we’ll be ready to welcome you with open arms when you arrive!

“I’ve been practicing mindful meditation for about a year, so was excited by the prospect of joining a friend for my first ever weekend retreat. I’d been following Alice on Instagram and had signed up for her weekly Love Mail. My friend had joined a one day workshop with Alice previously and highly recommended the retreat. However I wasn’t sure what to expect.

From the moment I arrived I felt so comfortable and welcome. I was surrounded by about 15 wonderful women, from all parts of the country and all on their own personal journey of growth.

The retreat was a glorious weekend of self discovery, with guided meditation sessions, beautiful gratitude sessions alongside a glorious vegan feast throughout the weekend and time to journal and capture your thoughts, chat with the inspirational women and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

I revelled in the opportunity to experience so many firsts – my first Reiki treatment, which was frankly unbelievable. It literally blew my mind and I loved having the chance to try it.

My first Kundalini yoga – unbelievable; my first ever sound bath with an amazing vibration gong – mind blowing. My first full moon circle! My first yoga Nindra and the list goes on.

I felt the retreat gave me the opportunity to seek out my personal truth, giving me the opportunity to forgive myself and others for fears and mistakes of the past. I felt the retreat cemented my desire for personal happiness and allowed me to step into my future with clarity and confidence.

I believe it was no coincidence that whilst I was at the retreat a work offer came in that surpassed all of my expectations, as I develop my consultancy business. I think the universe really worked to support me, thanks to the retreat.


“I feel so much more energised and in love with life again, thank you for helping me bring my authentic spark back again!! 🙏🏽✨

I cannot wait for more of your events and I do hope we can meet again, loved your energy, gorg warmth and fun vibes!! ☺️🙏🏽💞

It was lovely to meet Lisa, the teachers and other like minded people too 💛

You were so natural, in flow, confident and warm, because of that, there was such a gorgeous energy in the room and I felt immediately at home. The fact you knew who I was straight away and both you and Lisa greeted me with a hug, I was so grateful and felt so valued.

Thank you for a special day and creating such a warm, homely, authentic and loving space for us all to share.

I really do appreciate What you do and just wanted to pass on my positive feedback to you.”


“What Alice created on the Autumn retreat I attended in November was nothing short of modern alchemy, a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, and combination. Delicious vegan food, meditation sessions and sitting in circle to name just a few of the things on the menu for the weekend. Every aspect of the weekend was well planned and thoughtfully put together. The venue was very luxurious and Alice and her team had set it up to be the perfect zen den with candles, log fires and flowers for our arrival.
After two months I can reflect on some of the things I’ve taken away from the retreat. Here are the most notable ones,
⭐️ Getting clear on my dreams and taking steps towards them
⭐️ Letting go of some unhealthy habits and replacing them with loving choices.
⭐️ Enhancing my home environment to support my meditation practice
⭐️ Letting go of some limiting beliefs that were holding me back

Huge thanks to the special guest teachers who joined Alice as part of her Be Team,.”
