The Private Ayurvedic Retreat

Our Ayurvedic Retreat is situated in a small and cosy terraced town house in the quiet, historic village of Tutbury in Staffordshire, chosen for its easy access. As you’ll be our only guest at our Ayurvedic Retreat in Staffordshire, you’re guaranteed our individual care and attention at all times. The venue is exclusively yours for the duration of your stay, apart from scheduled visits by ourselves for treatments, health counselling and the cooking and serving of the simple and delicious vegetarian meals created to match your body type and goals.

The house is ideal for one guest.  There’s a bedroom, along with the bathroom and treatment room upstairs. Downstairs you’ll find the kitchen, sitting room and conservatory overlooking the pretty garden, which we've transformed into a quiet, meditative space, so it’s an oasis of calm.  On a clear night you can even indulge in some star-gazing.

One of the things our regular clients really value is having the house to themselves whilst knowing we’re nearby.  As we live next door we're able to be flexible with timings, never in a rush to get home and always available when you need us. If you wish to take time out for a little 'inner reflection' we'll leave you to sit and ponder and if you wish seek our knowledge and advice we're never far away.

“Here in the little house I find complete peace of mind, relaxation, and one to one care. Not only do I receive wonderful food for my body but also for my mind to digest and consider. I may arrive feeling a little frazzled and worn but always leave feeling wonderful, alive, fresh, renewed and ready to face the world again. Be kind to yourself, come and experience this amazing retreat with some of the loveliest people you will ever meet..”
— Joan Lewis, Nottingham

Tutbury Village and the surrounding area

Tutbury is conveniently situated on the borders of Staffordshire and Derbyshire, right in the heart of England.  The village is on the banks of the River Dove and the site has been inhabited for over 3,000 years.  There are Iron Age defensive ditches surrounding the main hill, on which the ruins of the Tutbury Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was once imprisoned, now stand.  Next to the castle is the impressive Norman church, St Mary’s, which dates from around 1160. The village itself is known for its craft and antique shops, which draw in collectors from around the country.

If you’re interested in exploring further afield, before or after your stay, there are excellent road links to the Peak District National Park with villages such as Ashbourne, Bakewell, Buxton and Matlock Bath, as well as numerous walking routes to view the stunning countryside.  Derbyshire is also known for its many stately homes and parks, such as Chatsworth House, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall.
