Private Retreats


Based in the Forest of Dean, with stunning woodland at the end of the road, Cosmic Teapot is delighted to offer private retreats, away from it all, for a half or full day, 1, 2 or 3 nights – for solo travellers or for two people together.

Retreats are based in my Summerhouse, in the mindfulness garden behind my home. I offer a range of services that can be incorporated into the retreat package, including:

  • Intuitive massage
  • Couple’s massage
  • Reiki / energy healing
  • Forest walks
  • Mindfulness and  meditation
  • Personal, professional or relationship coaching

Retreats here are always exclusive, and can be booked for a single day only, up to 3 days and 3 nights, for one or two people.

* NEW FOR 2021 – Hot Tub now available on site for private and exclusive use *



If two people on retreat would like treatments at the same time, I can bring in other known and trusted local therapists – e.g. a second intuitive masseuse (male or female), a sports masseuse, reflexologist, bowen practitioner, hypnotherapist or nutritionist.

All retreats are tailored to your specific requirements. As such there are lots of options – including the option to have a fully silent / digital detox retreat. These can be an incredible way to press reset when we are at a point of overwhelm – if you can dare to turn your phone off!

Prices therefore vary – based on whether you come alone, or with a partner, friend or family member, and whether you include bodywork, healing, coaching, mindfulness and meditation sessions. As a guide though, day retreats cost from £95 and overnight retreats are from £125.

Contact me today with details of your budget, and what you’d like included on your perfect retreat, and together we’ll create something that’s just right for you based on whatever is going on for you at the moment.

I do also run a handful of group retreats throughout the year at other local venues.  For details on these, please see the group retreats page here.

Forever grateful ❤

Working with Cheryl has been life changing. I’ve been having life coaching sessions (over Zoom) for several months, which have been immensely helpful in getting me through an incredibly difficult time. She has helped me help myself. Cheryl really takes the time to invest in her clients, she is caring, empathetic, warm, insightful and has a real knack of making you feel comfortable, supporting your journey with zero judgement.
Cheryl put together a personalised programme for a retreat at Cosmic Teapot. From the moment I arrived I felt safe and cared for. The cabin is such a lovely place, it really felt like a little piece of heaven while I was there. The work we did together during the retreat, I will be forever grateful for. The 1-2-1 sessions, mindfulness, healing massage and super healthy food, was exactly what I needed to springboard me on to the next chapter of my journey. As you can probably tell…I HIGHLY recommend Cheryl for anyone thinking of coaching of any sort, retreats, massage and reiki. I have really loved working with her (I think she is secretly an angel).

What were your first impressions of the retreat venue?

Lovely, welcoming, homely. The Summerhouse is such a wonderful haven surrounded by the inviting mindfulness garden with lovely spots to sit – or swing in the hammock – and just ‘be’ with nature.

What were your favourite parts of the retreat?

The Reiki healing was a very personal and inspiring experience. The intuitive massage was awesome – so great for me as I had been suffering (not any more!) from neck and shoulder pain for quite some time. The mindfulness walk in the forest was beautiful. Learning meditation from such a lovely lady. The whole two days were perfect.

Please describe your overall retreat experience.

Cheryl is lovely, welcoming and extremely knowledgeable. I was made to feel at home straight away and my every need tended to. Cheryl is a perfect host and makes delicious meals – very nutritious too. I feel SO good after this retreat – it was peaceful, relaxing and inspiring.

What aspects could be improved?


How do you feel at the end of your retreat?

So relaxed, peaceful and really enthused to conquer meditation and all the other techniques I’ve learnt! I am very, very pleased to have chosen Cosmic Teapot for my retreat. Thank you.
