What to Bring

As we all know, the British weather can be unpredictable and while October in the Cotswolds is usually beautiful, we’d recommend packing for all weathers. Layers for those chillier moments, walking shoes to discover the local area and, of course, your favourite workout kit, to ensure you’re ready for whatever the weekend throws at you. 

Plus, you’ll have access to the heated indoor pool with sweeping views of the countryside so make sure to pack your swimwear. 

We’ve brought together a kit list of essentials to help you start your retreat preparations without the stress.
