The Freedom Retreat

A retreat is defined as:

withdrawal to a quiet or secluded place; a quiet or secluded place in which one can rest and relax.

And that’s what I’m creating ✨

A true retreat ✨

A place where you can rest, relax, ponder, consider, reflect, explore, inspire, share.

No requirements on you, no judgement, no checking in on what you hoped to achieve, no achieving required!

No wake up times, no 5 sessions a day, no learning here.

Just space. Time. Quiet. Freedom. Choice.

18 - 21 April 2023

Pitlochry, Scotland

Take time for you. To spend however you want to.

Want to bring 5 books and fall into them? YES FRIEND, DO IT.

Want to go for daily wanders in the countryside, finding inspiration outdoors? YOU GO PALLY.

Want to bounce ideas off of other self-employed pals? WE GOT YOU.

Want to explore what the next phase of your business could look and feel like? PLENTY OF SPACE FOR THAT.

Kinnaird Country House, Pitlochry

Your options

Your own room

We have four rooms you can have to yourself.

One is a single, two are large doubles. We also have another accessible double on the ground floor for pals who’s bodies prefer not to tackle stairs (please let me know when booking if you’d like this room).


A shared room

We have two shared rooms. 

Both are twins, it’s possible to add a third bed to one of the rooms.

If you and a friend would like to share, please let me know when you book, otherwise I’ll pair up pals.

All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, or bathrooms next to the room.

Everyone will get:

🐣 Fluffy robe and slippers.

✨ Access to the hot tub whenever you like!

🥰 A snack station in your room and all over the house.

🥐 Delicious continental breakfast buffet.

You will be able to tell me when you book if someone you know you would like to share with is coming, otherwise I’ll match you up.


I need to confirm our booking with Kinnaird House in October to guarantee our dates. Also 35 people have said they’re interested, so if you’d like a place, please let me know as soon as you can. Even if you would like a place, but would like to start your payment plan at the end of October for example, just let me know and I will do my best to save a space for you.

I will arrange taxi/minibus transfers from and to Pitlochry station for those pals who intend to arrive by train. I will ask people to get to Pitlochry station for 4pm on Tuesday for the minibus. The minibus will pick you up from the house at 10am on Friday. You can also drive if you live nearer – there is parking space for 5 cars.

Yes of course! All pals’ dietary requirements will be catered for. You’ll be able to tell me this when you book.

If you need to cancel part way through the payment plan, your payment plan will stop at that point. If I can find someone to replace you, I will issue you with a refund, minus £150. If I’m not able to fill your space, I’m afraid I won’t be able to offer you a refund.

No, Dave and I will be staying in a cabin in the grounds of the house, so while he will be in the kitchen at meal times, he won’t be taking part in the retreat.

We will have the entire house to ourselves.  The owners – Esther and Rene – live in a cottage at the rear of the house and Dave and I will stay in a cabin in the grounds of the house. We have the whole house and huge front garden to ourselves, as well as a private hot tub.

Pal, you and your beautiful brain are SO WELCOME. First of all, please know that any and all organised things (few as they are!) are 100% optional. Secondly, the living room will be a designated quiet zone during the day time, with the dining room as the chat zone, with quiet, relaxing music playing. If there is anything you are worried about, or would like me to consider, please just drop me an email or DM.

There will be some Prosecco, wine and beer in the fridge, along with Nosecco and Alcohol Free beers. There will also be lots of squash, juice, fizzy pop and other options.
