“We came across The Barn serendipitously and it just seemed to be the right place. And it was. My father and I had a long history of difficulty and we needed the time and space to face it and find a way forward. Sarah and Lucas were compassionate, engaged, generous hosts and witnesses to our process which was uncertain and mysterious until somehow it all clicked. There is a strange magic to what they are offering – an intention on their part to be both humble guides but also just simple human witnesses which is exceptionally powerful in opening up a neutral space for the release of old stories, the influx of fresh air and a new forgiving perspective. But that is what happened for us, and we are moving forward now with new seeds of confidence and trust planted at The Barn. Thank you!!!”

“Dear Sarah & Lucas, thank you so much for your kindness & support over the last 5 days. Coming here has afforded me the time to rest and the space & opportunity to talk through many issues that have never before been aired. I leave with a clarity & motivation that I haven’t experienced in a long time. You’re both so very skilled in what you do and I hope that many people to come will benefit from what you offer – it truly is unique.”

“I didn’t really know what I needed till I got to The Barn, just a bolt hole from my life, and that’s exactly what I got with so much more. Amazing support, wisdom and generosity from both Sarah and Lucas. Thanks for the good fun and sharing your beautiful home and garden too.”

“Sarah is an extraordinary counsellor with a uniquely caring and holistic approach to helping people in need. I can highly recommend her retreats which are tailored to suit individual needs, in beautiful surroundings. I will forever be in her debt for helping me out of the darkness of despair and onto the road to a new beginning.”

“The location is beautiful and exactly what we needed to get away from the stresses of everyday living. Sarah & Lucas’ warm homely nature made us feel super comfortable; they are totally inclusive and welcoming of anyone looking to make a change. (Sarah’s cooking is also super tasty and healthy.) Her broad knowledge and experience, and Lucas’ helpful tools, allowed me and my partner to leave the retreat feeling closer to one another and more hopeful for our future.”

“Thank you for treating me with such kindness and understanding at your unique retreat. It was excellent for me to retreat from ‘civilisation’ […]. It has been awakening, energising, restful, interesting and freeing…”

“I spent a delightful week on retreat with Sarah and Lucas, who made me extremely welcome and took good care of me throughout. The house itself has a calming atmosphere.”

“What makes the place special is Sarah’s empathic and open-heartedness to all who come. And her ability to know really well how a person feels […] and always I find a new insight.”

“It has been an adventure in self discovery and personal development. I’ve done lots of work yet felt no strain, only huge gain. I’m in awe of the whole experience. I keep catching myself thinking and exclaiming … Wow!”

“My deepest gratitude for holding space where I could be authentic, dig deep and find stillness and radiance.”

“A wonderful place and two lovely interesting people. I felt so well looked after, and safe enough to take some more steps in my journey!”

“I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be able to take refuge here.”

“Thank you so much. I have had a wonderful time here. I have enjoyed your company, wisdom and help. I feel relaxed and more me again and have learned some important stuff.”

“I travelled here, carrying a heavy stone of impenetrable darkness. Sarah and Lucas welcomed me off the train, an exhausted lost soul! They cared for me, laughed with me, let me cry, and guided me towards a new (yet old) light. They showed me how to love again.”

“I came to you with a heavy heart and deep sadness. I do feel so much lighter, thanks to your loving healings and massage, also for the lovely conversations.”

“It’s been a wonderful relaxing week. Each day the pressures of city life […] ebbed away. I feel spiritually restored & rejuvenated. Thank you.”

“Sarah is a great person, a friend, a counselor, a mother… and helps so many people who come here to find themselves. […] This is a place of gentle, natural transformations, a space away from the madness of everyday life where I find peace, inspiration, hope, love & most importantly a sense of who we are.”
