Re-Root Retreats

Just as Lime Wood is enveloped by and rooted in ancient forest, our weary souls and senses are (like it or not) rooted in nature. Humans are just not designed to function at full pelt, 24/7. Our minds and bodies pay the price.

Explore our series of re-rooting retreats, events and workshops that tap into the remedial powers of the English countryside, from expert oil painting sessions dotted around the grounds to delicious suppers using ingredients plucked from the forest floor.
