Forest Meadow Retreat Open Day

Updated: May 1, 2021

Updated: Date changed to May 22nd 2021

At last - we can have a day out!

Even though it's work-related and will be a long day, we can't wait to get away from home for a few hours. We'll be setting up our trusty Burford Deluxe hot tub at Sharon and John's eco-glamping retreat and I'm pretty sure it will attract a lot of attention. As Forest Meadow is a sustainable holiday destination our eco-friendly, wood-burning tub will be right at home there. Because the Open Day is centred on health and wellbeing, I'm also hoping that I might be able to sneak away from Tim and have a brief reflexology session. Or perhaps a relaxing shoulder massage or foot rub.

Where it's at

Forest Meadow Retreat is an adults-only eco-glamping site, surrounded by forests and wildlife, and close to the Haute Vienne and Dordogne borders. It's an area of natural beauty with lots of historical villages and towns, chateaux and lakes, so perfect if you want to go out for day trips. Although the site has been created for adult holidays, the tents can be block booked for up to 18 people, including children. So it would be ideal for cycling groups, a yoga retreat, intimate weddings or a long weekend for a family and friends reunion. Just imagine spending a few nights away in this wonderfully tranquil location.

Sustainable holiday destination

The retreat's 6 bell tents are fully furnished and equipped with a log-burner (for chilly evenings), a kitchen/dining area, solar-powered lighting, hot water and your very own private bathroom with compostable toilet! If you don't want to totally disconnect then there are also mobile phone and laptop charging points too.

There is also plenty of space for you to relax, meditate, read a book or socialise in the communal spaces if you want to. Take a walk through the forest to one of the neighbouring villages or go for a bike ride to one of the many lakes. All this is less than an hour from Limoges Airport, and only 30 minutes from Confolens.

TV Celebrities

We had Chateau Gioux on Escape to the Chateau DIY, Le Ranch Camping, and now Forest Meadow Retreat are TV celebs as well. Earlier this year they featured on 'A New Life In The Sun', and as Sharon explained "We're hoping that the Open Day will give people a chance to visit our retreat and see it for real, not just on TV". It's also an opportunity for professionals and artists to get together and provide a much-needed 'health & well-being' boost for people, after very challenging times during the COVID-19 restrictions.

Come and see us

So, if you are in the area and fancy a day out, come and see us on May 22nd at Forest Meadow. It is going to be a very well-organised, COVID-safe event too, with everything outdoors. All stall holders will be at least 10 metres apart, masks are obligatory, seating will be kept socially-distanced, and there will be several hand-sanitiser stations dotted about. People can book an appointment directly with the individual professionals and health advisers if that helps you feel even safer. Sharon will list all the stall-holders on their Facebook event page this week. It's free admission, and following the latest lockdown update from President Macron there is no restriction on travel, or attestation required as long as you are back home for 7pm.

Get in touch

Give us a call, or send us a message to book your personal appointment with Hot Tubs In France before the day. We can give you lots of advice and information if you are thinking of buying a tub. I think Sharon and John are also keen to find out more, because they are hoping to invest in one to compliment their eco-sweat lodge and plunge pool at the retreat. Well, we know from our other hot tub business owners just how much guests love the Burford Deluxe, so we might just get a sale.

We look forward to seeing you soon either at Forest Meadow Retreat or on one of our Summer 2021 Hot Tubs On Tour events. Dates will be released soon, so subscribe using the field below, or email us and ask to be added to our mailing list so you don't miss out. Happy Hot Tubbing!
