Our Philosophy

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 brand is Eve Taylor, 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!

We are constantly looking to improve upon our services and know that we can not become experts in every field. For this reason, great care and research is carried out before allowing practitioners of any other beauty or wellbeing services into the Retreat.

We have extended a warm welcome to Annie Coles of SkinInspire Aesthetics. Having been approached several times each month by various practitioners over a 5 year period, Annie is the first person who met the high standards of care and competence wanted at The Retreat. A similar approach to research was taken by us before asking Sarah to carry out Semi-Permanent Makeup on site. Personal recommendation from clients was extremely important!

OPI nail care and lacquers 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 and OPI do not carry out testing on animals.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
