I am so delighted that you have chosen to find out about A Nest of Gentle Makers. We are a small team working to provide beautiful, restorative retreats. We hope you will be able to find out everything you need to know about the retreats we are running in 2019. They are ideally suited to adults old and young, those with skills already and those with lots to learn. We know how busy everyone’s lives are so we hope you can enjoy the time with us, whether you want to be busy making, busy relaxing and doing yoga, or busy finding a quiet place and reading a good book – you will be most welcome.

A Nest of Gentle Makers Retreats are ideal for those who want some rest and relaxation and maybe want to learn a new creative skill, complete an ongoing project or simply spend some time enjoying the peace and quiet. Come and absorb yourself in the beautiful surroundings and if you want to, share in the company of others. The focus is on gentle creativity in an unpressured and unhurried environment. And if you just fancy a well deserved lie-in that is fine too!

Our Next Retreat

The next retreat we are holding will take place from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th October. There is a lot more information on the pages for Autumn 2019. Booking is currently open for this retreat and we do have some spaces left.

We will be holding more retreats in May and October 2020. We have not yet opened bookings for these but if you are interested please do sign up for email updates via the contact page and you will be one of the first to hear about them!

Mentions in the Press and Social Media

We are delighted to have been featured in The Guardian in January 2019 as one of the best creative retreats in the UK and Europe in 2019.

“Among the Nest of Gentle Makers- I inhaled, exhaled, moved, rested, was still, was nourished and nurtured. I talked, listened, laughed, shared, cared, looked, discovered, created and returned to being me.”

Diversity and Inclusion

At A Nest of Gentle Makers it is important to us to welcome all adults of any age, ethnicity, cultural heritage and religious background, ability, sexual orientation and gender identity.

We encourage all of our attendees to see beyond any perceived ‘difference’ and to foster a spirit of kindness and inclusion.

Obviously this is, and will continue to be, a work in progress and we welcome any feedback you may wish to give us, to enable A Nest of Gentle Makers to become the diverse and inclusive family we all wish it to be.
