The Retreat at Witherdens Hall offers a bespoke boutique experience in a picturesque and tranquil setting. Bring your frazzled mind and weary body to be soothed and pampered in your own comfortable and spacious cottage. The cottage sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms. The Suite is also available to rent (sleeps 2, ensuite bathroom, kitchenette & living area) as is a further double bedroom, The ChillSpace.
Feed your soul from our great library of books and DVDs, indulge in some pampering holistic treatments, relax in the far infra-red sauna, massage chair or steam cabinet in the ChillSpace, take a bike to explore the local area, walk on a gorgeous local beach or simply curl up in a fluffy dressing-gown with an organic coffee and one of the latest magazines.
Witherdens Hall is situated in Wingham, close to Canterbury and to the ancient town of Sandwich. It is perfectly placed for exploring the Kentish coast and indulging in country pursuits and culture - you could even take a quick trip across the channel. For those wanting an active break, the area is surrounded by the natural Kent countryside, with walks and cycle rides starting right outside the grounds. In early spring the bluebell woods give a gorgeous display, and the salt marshes and sandy beaches nearby tempt guests for an afternoon of sea air. The nearby village of Wingham is full of beautiful Tudor buildings, shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants (it even has a wildlife park), places like Walmer Castle and Canterbury Cathedral are well worth a visit, and there are excellent golf courses at Royal Cinque Ports and Royal St Georges.
Satnavs and maps are woefully inadequate for finding us. Please always use the directions we send you and note that Popsal Lane is only accessible from Goodnestone Road (it's on the left if you are leaving the village, just as you get out into open countryside, and it's on the right if you are coming down the hill towards Wingham from Crockshard Hill). Popsal Lane is NOT accessible from Staple Road. Popsal Lane is a no-through road and there is no place to turn at the end of the lane. Please drive slowly down the lane as Witherdens Hall is the first entrance on the right in Popsal Lane and you don't want to miss it!

In the 2 bed Retreat Cottage there is a super king size magnet therapy bed and a twin/super king. The lovely bathroom, with Jacuzzi style bath, has Neal's Yard lotions and potions, and fluffy robes. The kitchen is fully equipped and the sitting room is light, airy and very comfortable. We have lots of magazines including Country Living and Harper’s Bazaar, and we have loads of really interesting books and some great classic DVDs too. In the Suite there is a super king or twin beds and the lovely bathroom also has Neal’s Yard lotions and potions and fluffy robes. The Suite is of course light, airy and very comfortable too and has an equipped kitchenette. In the lounge area there are also lots of magazines, books and DVDs. The light, airy and comfortable Chillspace is a double bedroom. The bathroom with steam shower cabinet, Neal’s Yard lotions and potions and fluffy robes is shared with the adjacent MiniSpa, which might be used by other Witherdens Hall guests. Guests are always very mindful of each other and you shouldn’t find it an imposition. The adjoining, large Workspace kitchen and lounge area can be exclusively used if you wish - this is a great room for self-catering and chilling out and there are also lots of magazines, books and DVDs. The specification and finish of the accommodation is luxurious, Egyptian cotton bed linen encourages deep sleep, and we have used eco-friendly and organic products wherever possible. Guests have full use of the Spa's infra-red sauna, steam cabinet and massage chair during their stay.
The grounds at Witherdens Hall are home to The Retreat Workspace, which is the perfect venue to host workshops, courses or meetings for up to 25 people. The space is designed for learning, exploring opportunities and developing your potential, and attention has been paid to even the smallest of details. This is the perfect base for discerning people who are tired of business-like surroundings that stifle, rather than stimulate, creativity. The Workspace is divided into 3 main areas – the workshop/course area, the sitting/dining area, and the mini-spa. It also has access to a private patio, exercise pool and garden area.
Guests can order breakfast to be left in the cottage for you to prepare at your leisure. Organic breakfast items include freshly ground coffee, a myriad of teas, milk, home-baked bread, butter, jams, marmite, honey, yoghurt, cereals, fruit, local organic apple juice and our eggs, all for
