“I really enjoyed being cut off from the world. No phone, no responsibility for anyone but myself. The calmness gradually enveloped me as the weekend progressed. A great venue, especially the food.”
Set in the beautiful village of Pershore in Worcestershire, Holland House is easily
accessible from nearby Worcester, Evesham, Birmingham, Cheltenham and Gloucester.
The house sits within four peaceful acres of grounds and gardens. With views of
the meandering Avon, its flood plains and ancient bluebell woodlands, Holland house
provides the perfect environment for your weekend of meditation and mindfulness
Holland House provides single rooms (a limited number of twin rooms are available on request), providing you with your own space away from the snoring roommates that you may find on other retreat programmes!
All of the meals at Holland House are home cooked with locally sourced ingredients. Food is freshly prepared and cooked on the premises, including all cakes and biscuits. Traditional meals such as fish pie and Sunday roasts are served while vegetarian and other dietary requirements are also catered for. The chefs work closely with the kitchen garden to maintain connection to seasonal variety while local grocers, butchers and farm shops are used wherever possible to support local growers and reduce food-footprint.

Holland House has an "in harmony with creation" ethos and is committed to working towards a sustainable and environmentally sound future. The Garden and grounds are worked organically and the large kitchen garden provides some of the vegetables, fruit and salads which are served at meal times. The house is only cleaned with natural or environmentally friendly products and they even bank with the Co-Operative Bank due to their ethical policy of investments.

I really liked the fact that the delivery was non-religious and that it wasn't so strict that you worried too much about whether you could do it right or not.”
