A slice of heaven! We stayed in the well house for 3 wonderful nights. It's a total break from the madness of everyday. A beautiful spot where you can connect with nature, slow down and go off the grid. I had a fantastic healing massage from the lovely Rachel as well to round off our stay in Sancreed. I hope to be back!

We loved the homely house, peace, butterflies, stars, walks up the beacon to see the horses, delicious meals delivered to our door, and it was a great idea to have a Riverford veg box delivered too. Simply being in this beautiful place is a wonderful retreat in itself but the shamanic healing sessions were the highlight of our visit and the massages were very special too.

What a wonderful, relaxing, beautiful place The Living Well centre is. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wished we could have stayed longer. It was so peaceful. The Well house was lovely, our own hobbit home! Great having a wood burner too. Thank you so much.

The Well House is a special building in a special place. Rachel was a great host, and made sure we were aware of the nature of the venue (peaceful retreat centre, compost loos) before we completed the booking. On our first morning we awoke to the sight of the beautiful roundhouse ceiling, and emerged to hear a flute being played in the next field. Our young kids (3 and 7) felt safe to run and play in the pretty garden, and everyone we saw on site was very friendly. Due to the lush vegetation, though, we did feel like we had the place to ourselves a lot of the time, and we felt very far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We would definitely return for another stay.

The Well House truly was a magnificent find. We enjoyed everything about the place. Serene setting, friendly people. We loved getting back to nature, away from the strains of modern life. The log burner was lit every night, making the place so cosy in the evenings while we played scrabble. There are so many places close by to explore, enjoy and fall in love with. For sure, we'll be back again sometime in the future.

We stayed at the well house for a week, it is a beautiful and special place and we felt very welcome there. It is very peaceful and in a very quiet area, close to lots of beautiful beaches and there are also several lovely walks right on the doorstep. It is ideal if you want to get back to nature and have a relaxed holiday, our two little boys loved it!
