A group of 60 creative people attended our ‘Great Escape’ retreat last weekend at Dalesdown. Everyone had a brilliant time, with lots of feedback about the peaceful and friendly atmosphere, delicious food and fantastic activities. Here’s what some of the attendees had to say about the weekend:

“Words fail me, a refuge, an inspiration, peace, restoration, an outlet for creativity, I could go on… All the small touches were noted and appreciated. The food was incredible and all part of the rest we so loved and enjoyed… Thank you to the team for your sensitivity, your energy, your creativity and your vision.”

“Thank you! This was just what I needed, escaping from the stresses and strains of life and finding ‘space to be me’. It has been amazing, loved loved loved it. Thank you for your vision, the hard work and love of sharing. God has certainly been there this weekend, in friendships made, creativity and provision.”

“What a vision. What amazing wonderful ladies to see this through for us all. What an amazing team of cooks & folk to serve us. It has been an amazing weekend. Thank you so much. It has been such fun, peaceful, brilliant, lovely, perfect. Thank you all.”

“Thank you so much. The whole weekend has been truly wonderful from start to finish. I feel blessed to have been part of it.”

A huge thank you to Fliss Jay, Claire Jones and all the team who worked so hard to put it all together.
