Rural Retreat Day
Take a day out of your busy life to relax and unwind spending a day with animals, nature and exploring your creativity. A new take on a spa day.
A fantastic treat for yourself or a gift for a busy friend or relative.
These rural retreat days run from 9.30am to 4.30pm on selected days throughout the year. There are a maximum of 8 participants on each day.
Each day includes:
A tour of the site
At least 2 hands-on practical animal sessions
A mindfulness nature walk
A create or explore session
Hot & cold beverages
A healthy lunch
Animal sessions may include handling, feeding or walking any of the animals we have on site. These include sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, turkeys, lizards, snakes, frogs, millipedes and cockroaches. We have many animals on site, if you have particular requests for animals to work with (or not) just get in touch. There is never any pressure to be close to or handle any animal, and you will still enjoy the time with us, you might even surprise yourself.
Create or explore sessions may include making beautiful paper flowers, flower arranging, painting and drawing, making animal enrichment, making bird or bat boxes, making insect houses, pond dipping, and many more activities.
