Transition was renovated in 2006, apart from the outside walls everything is new, being built to incorporate new and old.
It was run as a B&B retreat by Shirley and Nigel for 5 years while they lived there. When they returned to the UK, it was let as a villa in the Summer months to tourist families.
This year 2018, Shirley is opening up the house as a retreat for groups of women to help them find their authentic self and true potential. More details are to be found on the WOMEN'S RETREATS and WORKSHOP page.
Is pictured above which leads to an open plan hallway and oak staircase, into the handmade Oak kitchen. There is a door to the utility and downstairs toilet.
There are 4 bedrooms, 2 doubles and 2 large doubles all have there own en-suite and separate WC.
2 standards will sleep two people
2 large will sleep three people.
Because it is an intimate gathering for 8-10 we find it difficult to accommodate single rooms, we are all women in this together and it is good to connect by sharing sleeping space. But if you really cannot share, we will be prepared to let just one single at an extra cost per night, see prices and it will depend on the workshop leader, as she may need the single space at the end of the day.
The house is surrounded by a large terrace where we can do our Yoga and Pilates as well as a Wisteria covered pergola another place for these activities and workshops.
On rainy or cooler days we will work inside or inside a Gazebo resurrected in the garden on the large open gravel area, next to the pergola.
The garden has 2 large lawns with tree coverage on one, lots of mature shrubs, flowers and fruit trees.
The pool is Egg shaped to represent REBIRTH to a higher consciousness. It has wide steps into a shallow end leading to a deeper part up to shoulder height, so is lovely for workshop activities with this theme, as well as for fun play and swimming of course! The pool is surrounded by a lovely natural stone terrace where we have sunbeds to lie and read inbetween any of the activities on offer which may be around the pool sometimes.
The small garden house is Shirley's studio apartment, giving participants the house to themselves.
