About Us


The philosophy of The Retreat is quite simple!

To provide you with a warm, calm and relaxing environment in which you can unwind and leave the stresses and the strains of daily life behind for a while. We strongly believe that (to use a quote from Renee Peterson Trudeau, International Life Balance Coach) ‘nurturing yourself is not selfish. It’s essential to your survival and well-being’. To this end, we aim to provide the treatments which will leave you feeling rebalanced and refocused, ready to take on whatever life has to throw at you.

Our skincare brands are Eve Taylor and Sothys.  Eve Taylor was chosen for her long standing lead in the field of aromatherapy. Eve Taylor OBE established her Aromatherapy business in 1963 and her aromatic serum formulae have not changed since inception as they work so well!  Sothys is still a private family owned business, established over 70 years ago and is renowned in luxury spas worldwide.  Their focus is on achieving results with a luxurious feel to their treatments and products.

OPI are well known world wide as leaders in nail care and colours. Each collection is designed to represent the season’s fashion colours providing you with a quick and easy way to update a look. In addition, OPI are also constantly striving to achieve more from their range, looking for new and improved ways to care for your nails as well as making them look good! OPI products do not contain DPB (dibutyl phthalate)or toluene which can dry and damage nails.

Eve Taylor, Sothys and OPI do not carry out testing on animals.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
