Our Holiday Courses and Retreats

Holiday retreats need a lot of organising before we actually sit at the dinner table on the first night. We call it the family dinner.

Participants arrive in the afternoon and welcomed with freshly squeezed fruit juices and smoothies. They unpack and settle in their new home for the week. We walk down to the pond and visit the orchard to check the apples and plums.

Our families invest in sending their children to us as well as investing in themselves by taking time to rest, relax and recharge.

I remember one mum when collecting her daughter telling me -You have no idea how much this retreat helped me. I could sleep in, read and do whatever I wanted which I haven’t done for over 12 years.-

People are staying in the UK after the lockdown and we had many enquires from families looking for options for staying safe, get the best for their children during the long summer break and at the same time having a family holiday.

We extended our Summer Course to 3 weeks. https://juditszathmary.com/event/summer-course-2020?instance_id=55

During our retreats students/participants leave their familiar lives to instead spend time in an environment that doesn’t remind them of who they think they are.

In doing so they separate themselves from the automatic behaviours they demonstrate in their daily lives.

As they are introduced to new routines and management strategies, along with a variety of possible solutions, students are led to more independence, improved health and well-being they might never have thought possible.


They begin to change their inner state through the carefully designed dynamic programmes followed by adequate rest to fully integrate new experiences and solutions along with recreational activities and as much fun and laughter as they can take.


It has been my long-held dream to be able to offer Conductive Education in a residential retreat setting which became a reality 7 years ago.

We create possibilities for individuals and groups to access Conductive Education programmes within beautiful surroundings that lift people out of their ordinary lives, nourish their senses, and nurture their souls while providing the essential consistency which is the heart of the Conductive Education System.


It adds an extra dimension to the learning when implementing new skills in alignment with the rhythm of the day and the week while creating an improved level of standards, orthofunctional habits, and norms.


We search for places that are unique and provide our participants a holiday of a lifetime while strengthening their commitment to their health and wellbeing by being able to access and utilise the philosophy and practice of the Pető System.

We are all looking forward to having you with us on one of our retreats or on our holiday courses.
