Retreat comes to a close
Depart feeling relaxed and inspired for the coming year!
The cost per person for our New Year Retreat is £395 per person. This price is based on 2 people sharing a twin room. As we have just 8 rooms, if you do want to have a room by yourself then there is a supplement of £75, though if you are happy to share with another one of our guests (of same sex) then there is no extra charge. Extend your stay for extra nights on B&B basis at £40 each. B&B is £50 per person per night ordinarily.
Optional treatments on Saturday afternoon are (mostly) £22.50 for half an hour and £45 for a full hour. These are booked during your stay.
Please advise of any special dietary requirements prior to your weekend.
Packed lunches and clearly printed walk guides from 3 to 12 miles are available.
Mobile phones do not currently work in Rosedale. There is a payphone in the entrance hall of The Tree.
All towels are supplied but bring a dressing gown for when you have your treatment. A swimming costume and flip flops are a good idea for when using the sauna / hot tub. Dressing gowns are available to hire at £5.
Don’t forget your wellies or walking boots if you fancy going out for a hike over the moors!
Final bills for treatments and wine are placed in the dining room after lunch on Sunday. Please note that we only accept cash and debit cards.
