Treat yourself to a Well Being Break!

A Well Being Break at UTLT is ideal for anyone looking for a healthy, vital and friendly retreat from all things familiar. It would suit individuals, or couples or a couple of friends.

We all need to switch off from our usual routines from time to time. A short mindful break dedicated to establishing new ways of thinking and being are so important to our overall sense of wellness. They are a great chance to step back and see things from a wider perspective so that we can mend and heal the parts of ourselves that have been neglected or sabotaged with negative, judgemental thoughts and continual self-criticism.

Taking time-out paradoxically creates more time to get back in touch and listen to our natural intuitions. We relax deeply and become more aware of our need for personal space, more aware of those habits which serve us well and those which are no longer useful, we realise that we can take back control of our thoughts and actions and step towards making healthy, positive and intuitive choices.

Be kind to your Self and treat yourself as you would treat your best friend!

Nourish your mind and body with right-thinking, good food, good conversations and healthy habits! Adopt simple Qigong skills and mindful structures that will enable and empower you to be confident and compassionate in all situations. Move towards a non-judgemental self-acceptance that embraces all of your being and emerge refreshed, restored, revitalised and ready for anything!

A Well Being Break is a real treat and a rare opportunity to put yourself first for a change!

He is interested in the science of things and combines an evidence-based, informed approach to life in general with his personal experience. One of his many passions is digital photography, which he approaches mindfully to capture a feeling, create an atmosphere, tell a story ~ all of which require patience, dedication and understanding to freeze a moment in time.

“I stayed at UTLT for 8 days. I was looking for a week or so in a tranquil, rural location in France and Nikki and Sean provided all the peace and quiet I needed. This is an outstanding location and Nikki & Sean provide a relaxing atmosphere, with a balance of personal space and great hospitality”


Perfect Retreat! “I needed the perfect place to stay - it had to be tranquil but energising, healthy but indulgent, peaceful but stimulating. It was a tall order, but I got the lot: long rambles through beautiful countryside, nourishing but decadent-looking vegetarian feasts for the eyes and palate, wonderful massages, great conversations, books and stars and birds and moons and sunrises and a hot tub. Thank you, Nikki and Sean, for helping me. You should be available on prescription”


"A lovely property full of character with plenty of secluded spots to relax in the garden, meadows, river and woods. The food here is delicious, great value and eaten in the excellent company of the owners Nikki and Sean. They are super interesting hosts and I departed inspired by their passions and outlook"
