Questions

We understand that before deciding to book one of our wellbeing retreats, you will no doubt have many questions to ask. We’ve tried to cover the most commonly asked ones in our Frequently Asked Questions page but if there is anything that we’ve not covered then please feel free to contact us.

You can use our Contact Form or email us at support@rawhorizons.com – or if you prefer to call us, we are here from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, 7 days a week and we are always delighted to talk with you and answer any questions.

If you do prefer to call, our number is 0333 050 6987

Our 2 most frequently asked questions are ‘What should I bring’ and ‘What do you provide’ so here are our answers:

What should I bring?

  • Comfortable clothes for meditation and yoga.
  • Comfortable clothes (and shoes) for activities in the house.
  • Sturdy shoes for walking around the grounds/countryside. Plus a waterproof jacket would be advisable as you may wish to go for a refreshing walk even if it’s raining a little!
  • Swim suit for the hot tub and sauna (& slippers or flip flops)

What do you provide?

We provide: towels, toiletries, bathrobes, hair dryers, yoga mat & block. We have high speed WiFi throughout the venue plus there is a good mobile signal with all networks. We understand the desire for a ‘digital detox’ during your stay but also appreciate the need to be contactable. We like to say although we are ‘secluded’, we are not ‘isolated’.

Our Location

If you choose to travel by train, we are an easy and relaxing 2½ hour journey from either London Kings Cross or Edinburgh, just 2 hours from Manchester to our local stations (Thirsk or Northallerton). We offer free transfers to/from Thirsk or Northallerton station.

Should you prefer to drive, we will send you simple but detailed driving instructions. Click here to view our location map.

Booking

For your convenience and ease of use, we’ve provided you with the facility to book and pay online and you can choose to either pay a deposit to secure your place or pay for your retreat in full should you prefer.

Although our online transactions are completely safe and secure and all your data (credit card info etc) is encrypted using the latest technology we understand that not everyone is comfortable with using online payment systems.

So, if you’re at all nervous about this then please call us and we can arrange an alternative. We’re happy to accept payment by bank transfer or take your credit/debit card details over the phone. We can also accept payment by cheque if you prefer.
