The Quaives Retreat is a hidden gem, surrounded by the peaceful countryside of East Kent, a real escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, which is in easy reach with the high speed rail from London to Canterbury West Station, just 15 minutes ride from us.
We run weekly yoga classes, corporate away days and a variety of retreats. We also offer fantastic packages for you to run your own wellbeing events and retreats, or celebrate your special day here be it a wedding or birthday.
Our cottages have become a popular holiday destination; with accommodation options perfect for a romantic weekend away or relaxing family holidays, with lots of options for fun days out on our doorstep, as well as great places to eat!
Our aim is to provide a real sense of retreat with a touch of the luxury. We have a range of accommodation options for holiday rentals and yoga retreats groups. We have a brand new beautiful yoga studio with high ceilings, and a communal diner-lounge with log burner and an on-site professional kitchen. There is a hot tub, tennis court, fire pit, and cedar wood pavilion for guest's use and beautiful formal gardens and grounds to explore, that open onto meadows and the lakes beyond.
We are a short distance from two stunning english villages of Ickham and Wickhambreaux; the latter of which you will drive through to get to us and is located along the pristine Little Stour river complete with an impressive five storey water mill, village green with many charming period properties. Canterbury is only a few minutes drive away, with its stunning cathedral, many museums, great shopping and wonderful cafes and restaurants scattered throughout the winding medieval streets. A choice of seaside towns and villages are also within easy reach.
