Plunging Into Spending Time Alone

You will experience a unique 7 nights alone, totally tech-free, at the cottage in the forest, in the Black Mountains in Monmouthshire.

“A simple yet luxuriously peaceful idyll. What a place to wake up.”

Our aim is to create a frictionless environment for you while you’re at the cottage, because we want you to fully absorb this unique experience of spending time alone.

“Research shows that it takes a minimum of 3 days for your brain to refresh and relax.”

Submerge yourself in the present moment and immerse yourself to whatever you are drawn to.

“Who new what a few days minus technology could do!”

Your solitude is punctuated by:

A Massage

Soon after your arrival, an experienced massage therapist will arrive to knead away knots of tension, reinforcing the message of a complete change of pace

Rich Conversations

These provide a stimulating counterpoint to spending time alone. You will be guided to sculpt the fragments of your insights into more than the sum of their parts. This is a process to enjoy and have fun with, and you can expect a refreshing, light-hearted and light touch approach
