Your Escape

We love the city, but the pace of urban-living can be stressful and we believe (as with any relationship!) it’s healthy to have some time apart and breathing space.

Our weekend Escapes and day workshops take you to places of awesome natural beauty, nourish your body and mind, and deliver you back to the city feeling balanced, refreshed and energised.

We’re busy at Urban Witch HQ brewing up some exciting plans, so please come back soon for details of our upcoming events and activities.

Unplugged Weekend – May 2014

“Thank you Katie and Hayley for a brilliant weekend. It was such a tonic! I haven’t been to something like this before but it was great. I’ll certainly be replicating some of the recipes too.” Jennie

“I love Urban Witch. This was the second escape I’ve been to and both times it has really taken me out of myself and helped me achieve that ever elusive sense of balance. Thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a chance to recharge and restore.” Nat


Yoga & Creativity Escape – November 2013

“Amazing! I feel like a new person. I would recommend this to anyone (I actually think it should be mandatory!) The massage was the best I’ve ever had.” Lindsey

“Mad wicked awesome! Just what the doctor ordered.” Katherine

“I feel so inspired and re-energised to return home, I really can’t thank you enough. See you at the next one!” Sarah


Midsummer Escape – June 2013

“I’ve been completely rejuvenated and inspired on so many different levels. I feel creative and healthy through and through. Katie and Hayley have been the perfect hosts, I will for sure return.” Laura

“It’s been a joy from start to finish. I felt cherished throughout, stretched, relaxed and in very special company.” Lucy

“The weekend really was an escape, mentally and physically. Really educational, informative and fun.” Kate


Yoga & Writing Escape – November 2012

“Such a wonderful break away from the stresses of every day life. I feel like a new woman! It’s that weird sensation of having achieved but relaxed. Would happily recommend to friends and am definitely coming again.” Fran

Escape to the Hills – April 2012

“Thanks for a wonderful weekend! My massage with you was one of the most relaxing and effective ones that I have ever had!” Nicola
