delighted to be bringing yoga, meditation and mantra on this  2 1/2 day natural retreat for women in a secret exclusive camping venue set in a beautiful hidden 6 acre wood in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the North Downs.


An inspiring and nurturing experience connecting with gentle, warm and interesting women.  Nourish yourself and embrace a slower pace through creativity, fire and food. Tune into nature and switch off from your busy lifestyle, work and family.













What’s included:

  • Shared accommodation in 7 shepherdess huts and a bell tent (single occupancy available at additional cost).  All shepherdess huts have woodburning stoves

  • Daily morning yoga

  • 6 meals – all vegetarian and freshly made with healthy, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients

  • Space to explore new skills such as string-making, whittling, weaving, fire making, creating wild headdresses, table decorations and wild cocktail making

  • Wonderful walks on the beautiful North Downs in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

  • All bedding provided and comfy double or single beds with real mattresses– you only need to bring your towel, toothbrush, toiletries and a torch!

  • Double hot-water showers and 2 eco-loos in converted shepherdess huts.  One outdoor bucket shower for the brave-hearted

  • Large firepit area and woodfired bread / pizza oven, indoor and outdoor kitchens

  • Hammocks and a 40 metre zipwire hidden amongst the pine trees

  • Indoor space with woodburning stove and piano!



To maintain the remoteness and magic of the campsite, no vehicles are allowed on site so when you arrive your adventure will begin with a short walk across the fields to the woodland (Transport to the site can be arranged if needed)   

There are only 10 parking spaces on site so we would urge you to car share where possible and some spaces will be available in our minibus travelling from Brighton.  More details nearer the time.


The nearest train stations are Dorking or Ockley and we can provide details of taxi companies if required.

Who are we?

Gather is the creation of Sam Reece and Jo Wren born out of a shared passion for nature and the outdoors, camping, fire and food.  They have long held the wish to create an experience which gathers women together in nature to learn and share skills, stories and passions, create nourishing food and beautiful environments in which to relax, be inspired, and connect with others and themselves.  

Gather brings together their unique blend of skills and experiences into one beautiful nurturing package.


Sam Reece

Sam is an artist and has a background in design, particularly botanicals, colour and curating amazing collections of exquisite objects.  This coupled with her passion for nature, fire, food and friends enables her to create beautiful spaces for welcoming people and feeding them with love.

Jo Wren

With many years experience of setting up projects and events and working with people in various settings, Jo combines this with her love of the outdoors, fire making, whittling and all things nature related to provide a safe and inviting place for people to explore their passions and potentials



All questions are good questions.......and here are some that we’ve received already:


Are there toilets?

Yes – there are 2 compost loos on site and 2 showers with hot water both housed in beautiful shepherdess huts.  There is also an outdoor bucket shower


Will it be one of those hippy dippy things?

It can be as hippy dippy as you’d like it to be – or not!  We’re just going to spend some time together in beautiful surroundings and we invite you to join us in some yoga, whittling, fire making etc – we don’t see this as hippy dippy but everything is optional so if you feel uncomfortable with anything then please feel free to skip it and do your own thing.


Will there be alcohol?

We will provide a small amount of alcohol in the form of wild cocktails and some wine on Saturday night but if you’d like to bring your own please feel free.  The focus of the weekend is on good health and nurture so we’d ask you to respect that.


Do I need to bring my own bedding / towels etc?

All bedding will be provided.

You do however need to bring the 4 T’s – towel, toothbrush, torch and toiletries.  


Can I bring my dog / husband / children?

Sorry but no.  Our hope for the weekend is that you can leave all the distractions of everyday life behind and truly focus on yourself.
