the people the place
theforge retreat is a health and wellbeing retreat that is discreetly tucked away in the heart of Meopham's tranquil countryside, offering full board residential stays throughout the year.
The secure gated retreat is set in two and a half acres of beautiful grounds, so take time to sit in the peaceful, secluded gardens and enjoy the surrounding wealth of nature. With our heated outdoor swimming pool, garden lodge and secret hideaways, you can easily find a space to relax and let go. As the retreat has no nearby street lighting, on a clear evening you can bask in the star-lit skies, visible from inside our glass conservatory, or outside, gathered around the fire-pit for cosy and entertaining evenings. In addition, the house boasts fresh, bright spaces such as a large open kitchen diner, bathrooms equipped with showers and whirlpool tubs, exquisite boudoir-style bedrooms and a quiet lounge - perfect for reading and relaxing.
Our retreat offers an experience that will help you feel calm and replenished. It is a superb opportunity to unwind and embrace your inner peace and tranquillity; a release from the stresses of the day-to-day world.
Our friendly, qualified team have a wealth of knowledge to help you make positive changes to your lifestyle. You can be assured you will receive the very best tuition, encouragement and support during your time with us, and leave feeling positive and inspired.
Food is a fundamental part of good health, so is an important part of your stay. We source most of our ingredients locally, using seasonal Kent produce. All dishes are freshly prepared in our kitchen and designed by our nutritionist to be full of flavour, healthy and nourishing, which will leave you feeling satisfied and with a new appreciation for food.
Our current retreat programmes include activities to improve mind, body and spirit, such as Tai Chi, Yoga, meditation, sound healing, informative and creative workshops and life coaching. There is also the option for additional 1-1 therapies during your free time.
