I was delighted with my Raynor Massage course which was provided by additional care from Oliver and Lucy, " The Retreat People". Their genuine care for each individual need of every person in the group was out of this world. The food and ambience made solely by them was something I did not expect to receive with such conviction. They make a room feel alive with love and care beyond your "norm" of a retreat and I believe this is only felt as they are truly genuine with their care they give.I hope to take another retreat with the company in the future.

I recently enjoyed the privilege of being on a retreat hosted by Oliver and Lucy. What an incredibly talented and dynamic team they are. Honestly, before I even gave a thought to what I needed they already had it sorted. It felt as though I was at a 5 star hotel with all my needs catered to. When I first heard our menu consisted of entirely vegetarian meals I was very concerned, being South African. Let’s just say they have changed my perceptions and outlook on life forever. The meals were out of this world! I would recommend The Retreat People to anyone looking to facilitate an event or a course. With their unique approach and warm friendly demeanour they will ensure your guests have the most unforgettable time.

I went on a massage course with The Retreat People in November 2016 at Natsley farm. Lucy made us all feel very welcome and looked after us brilliantly. Oliver cooked us some of the most nourishing and delicious veggie food I've had and I was introduced to all sorts of cool things like home baking, brewing Kombucha and making ferments. What a brilliant way to learn a new skill! I had and excellent time and felt super healthy afterwards - well worth it!

Wow! These guys are amazing. I signed up for an intensive Raynor Deep Tissue Massage Therapy course in North Devon but what I actually got was an experience of a lifetime. Greeted with a big hug from Lucy and shown to my lovely room, all I could think about was the beautiful aroma of food (but also how I would cope with a meat-Free diet!) Every day saw us all bonding over early morning Yoga (with the beautiful, regal Olivia), learning our new skills (Dave Taylor - teacher extraordinaire) and being presented with the most appetising and mouth watering of fare. It was so sad it had to end BUT new friends were made and I was leaving so much lighter in spirit and soul ... I know it won’t be long before I’m seeing these guys again.

I have completed two courses which were both hosted by The Retreat People. They make any space feel like home. Being vegan, they catered for me on an individual basis, with meals I'd expect from a 5 star restaurant. I was not only taken away by the beauty of the location, nor the beauty of the stay...but they are also beautiful inside and out! I look forward to my next venture where they are supporting my mental, spiritual and physical nutrition.
#DELICIOUS #NUTRITIOUS #LOVE!

You couldn't find yourself in better hands... Oliver and lucy nourish your soul and uplift your spirits. I would highly recommend booking in your next retreat with them. I have studied raynor massage and have never looked back. It is a wonderful career and I'm so happy that I decided to do it with The Retreat People.
It's the attention to detail and absolute love and passion they share, that truly sets them apart from any other retreat. Beautiful souls who sincerely care and nurture. Inspiring menus and heavenly healthy meals. I didn't want to leave!

Just had the most amazing break with these wonderful people. Can't recommend them enough. The food was original and tasty and we were all up for seconds. As hosts they were warm and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We felt at home immediately.
