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.

We’ve listened to what our guests are looking for: lightly structured chill time and making the most of our calm, healing surroundings while, crucially, having some creative fun. So here’s a 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.

Re-Vibe: Summer Sessions 

We’ll be hosting a shindig or two, on our lawns, with plenty of sunshine, a glass or two of something chilled and some real talent worth slumping into a deckchair for. This summer, from 30th June to 8th September, we’ll be hosting various musical acts from 3.30-6.30pm as part of our Re-Vibe series. 

Swing by and join us on a Sunday afternoon or lean into the re-vibe after a lunch at HH&Co, or with dinner booked for the evening; or why not make a weekend of it with a stay at Lime Wood. Is a lazy, music-filled Sunday on the lawn not the perfect way to round off your weekend?
