What should I wear, and what should I bring with me?
What I should wear? Please dress comfortably, indoor shoes and good outdoor shoes, boots or wellingtons for walking. Warm clothes are advisable for the walk and an umbrella. You may want to change for dinner and bring a swimming costume if you wish to use the spa.
What should I bring with me? Remember to bring any food supplements or medication you regularly take – enough for the length of your stay.
Are there opportunities or space for other activities?
Sunday morning before 11am would be a great opportunity to visit the sauna and steam room and enjoy the grounds. Use of the sauna and steam room is free, however there is an additional charge for spa treatments. Please book directly with Down Hall hotel for treatments. An additional opportunity would be when the retreat finishes at 3.30pm on the Sunday.
