We first crossed paths with the multi-talented Mitchell Wheeler from AO Holistics, when we were searching for a qualified Qigong Teacher to deliver a session during a Corporate Retreat. Mitchell has a wonderful nature about him and he instantly fell in love with Wootton Park Wellness and us with him! When Mitchell asked if he could host his own 48 hour Restorative Retreat here, we were very excited.
The Retreat took place over the first weekend of February and Mitchell put together a beautiful programme for his 10 guests.
This included a number of Yoga, Qigong, Meditation and Breathwork sessions at the Wellness Yurt, interspersed with time to relax in hot tubs, spend some time walking in nature or chatting around the firepit. Upon arrival, the Yurt was set up with mats, blankets and eyes masks ready for the first evening Meditation & Yoga sessions.
Mitchell requested a full vegetarian menu for the duration of the group’s stay and we made sure they were well looked after with unlimited hot and cold drinks, plenty of cakes/bakes along with three delicious homecooked meals a day.
The majority of the group stayed in the 450-year-old Tudor Farmhouse and adjoining Bakehouse, with a private ensuite bedroom each. A couple of guests opted to stay in a Glamping Pod.
The feedback from the group has been wonderful:
“What can I say?
A simply magical place
If any doubt, just need to try and experience yourself! You will not regret it! Honestly you do not want to miss out on this hidden gem.”
We’re feeling grateful to be welcoming Mitchell back to run two Day Retreats (at the end of April and May 2023) and then for another longer retreat in early 2024.
“Wootton Park Wellness is a wholesome homely space offering a 1st class service. I hosted my first retreat at Wootton Park this February with peace of mind thanks to the brilliant staff and facilities, allowing me and my clients to relax and soak in the wonderful views, quiet and beauty of the grounds” – Mitchell Wheeler
