Being In Nature
Research, and my own personal experience, has shown that being in nature provides many, endless physical, social, emotional and psychological benefits. With Sandhill House being based along the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way coastline of North West Donegal, there are glorious beaches, cliffs, forests, hills, mountains and ample opportunities to reconnect with nature:
All ready for the next challenge life throws at me!
Feeling reinvigorated and ready to face the world again!
The house has a magical energy to it of ease and calm, which is exactly what I needed.
Sandhill House is a fantastic venue for my retreats. As a fitness and pilates instructor, the spacious studio is a great space to deliver everything from invigorating morning workouts to twilight mindfulness sessions. The comfy living room and glass house, not to mention the hot tub, are great for casual conversations with guests. My guests can also relax in comfort in their ensuite bedrooms and open the curtains in the morning to the most spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean.
It's the perfect place to retreat, relax and recharge.
