Welcome to New Hall Summerhouse Retreat! Here's a little about me if you're interested...
Over my 25 years working as a Registered Nurse in various roles within the NHS, I have had the privilege of working with people who have been touched by a vast range of issues, both mentally and physically. Alongside these skills and experiences, more recently I had been awakened to the world, drawn to natural healing and trained extensively in complimentary therapies. I even had a previous life many moons ago qualifying as a chef and working in hospitality for some years. But my great love is aromatherapy, healing and creating and to soothe my own soul, I am fortunate enough to be able to combine each of my favourite things.
I have also loved creating this healing holistic space, previously as a holistic therapy studio and now as an overnight retreat. I love that you can come and explore the local and wider areas or Yorkshire, spend time in nature or simply relax, meditate, chat or do whatever you feel like doing. We are ideally located as a central base for visiting, finding and discovering our beautiful Yorkshire. I will give you ideas for walks, hikes, wild swimming spots, eateries, drinks and more on the 'Things To Do' page. I hope you love it here!

Working across bar, restaurant, banqueting and kitchen in numerous hotels and catering establishments around Yorkshire, I qualified as a chef in 1987 from Thomas Danby College Leeds, with a City & Guilds diploma (706 1-2 General Catering).
