Sandhill House is so beautiful and welcoming. Thankyou for making us so nourished, calm and cared for.


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.
