Spotlight on Retreat East

In the idyllic Suffolk countryside, Retreat East is a sustainable retreat where 'the Good Life' meets modern hospitality on a former dairy farm - here's what you need to know.

Country luxe accommodation

Made up of 26 eco-luxurious barns and converted from original 16th-century buildings, Retreat East is a unique and beautiful wellness destination. Peppered across the estate, each barn is a different size, making it the perfect destination for everyone, whether you're looking for a romantic break for two or a group getaway with friends in the larger four-bedroom barns.

Active enthusiasm

The retreat's countryside location in the heart of Suffolk means that tranquil scenery is part of the experience, and wellness encompasses a range of outdoor adventure opportunities as well as spa experiences. Spend time cycling in the surroundings or even trying your hand at axe throwing, archery, nordic walking and yoga.

Homegrown nutrition

Dinner is served in the retreat's award-winning restaurant, where ingredients from the organic kitchen garden take centre stage, supported by produce from their favourite local artisan suppliers. Delicious and nutritious menus are served at breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea, optimising the feel-good factor.

Scenic spa destination

Purpose-built within the grounds it the spa, where you can unwind in carefully curated facilities that take you on a journey through a sauna, steam room, an outdoor Jacuzzi, a cold plunge experience and rainforest showers. Preparing mind, body and soul, they are the perfect antidote to a busy life, and set you up perfectly for the spa therapies that are available.

Elemental wellbeing

The spa is themed around the five elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine, water, earth, metal, fire, and wood. This frames the treatment experience, using natural products that combine ancient botanicals with modern science from Elemental Herbology for face and body therapies, as well as The Gel Bottle for manicures and pedicures.
