A place to rest and recharge

Witherdens Hall offers an entirely bespoke, boutique style experience in a tranquil setting. Beautiful accommodation to stay in while visiting the historic area of East Kent, a place to rest and recharge your batteries or just ‘kick back’ with time for yourself. The magnet therapy bed in the downstairs bedroom of the Retreat Cottage offers one of the best nights sleep you will ever experience!  Bliss out in our Chillspace MiniSpa or relax and rejuvenate with a wonderful treatment with one of our highly recommended therapists.


The two double bedroom Retreat Cottage has a luxurious bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and relaxed dining/living area.The rooms are all bright and airy, giving a wonderful sense of space and tranquillity. 

Our newly converted Suite awaits with twin or super king bed, Egyptian cotton sheets and a lovely aspect onto our courtyard garden. It has a lovely bathroom, fully-equipped small kitchen and seating area and a myriad of interesting and diverse books and DVDs to entertain you.

The ChillSpace double bedroom can also have a kitchen / dining area and living room for your exclusive use.

All accommodation comes with the use of the Chillspace MiniSpa's far infra red sauna, steam cabinet and massage chair during your stay as well as use of the outdoor spa pool when the weather is warm.  (Use of the pool by arrangement with Louise and her family).

Good food is a vital component of a happy stay at The Retreat and East Kent truly is the garden of England, so most guests forage in the vegetable garden and at the local farm shops, cooking for themselves when the mood takes them during their stay.  Meals can also be booked in advance to be delivered to The Retreat by MyFood - their food is delicious. There is also delicious food available within walking distance from Gibson's Farm Shop Cafe 7 days a week and some lovely local pubs and restaurants as well.

Guests can book breakfast to be left in the kitchen to prepare at their leisure. Organic breakfast items include freshly ground coffee, a myriad of teas, milk, home-baked bread, butter, jams, marmite, honey, yoghurt, cereals, fruit, local organic apple juice and our eggs for £12.50 per head, per day.

The Retreat is the perfect place near Canterbury to soothe and nurture your mind, body and soul. Overnight stays, weekend breaks or longer stays can all be arranged.

For additional guests or groups using The Retreat Workspace further accommodation can be arranged with nearby B&Bs, self-catering cottages and hotels.
