In more detail...


Everything you get on the Classic retreat and more: awesome Caroline Bragg will be your personal trainer for the week, helping you get back into exercise or upping your game, but with extra fitness for mums, more dad sessions and a more personalised experience.

As with the Classic retreat, Caroline tailors your exercise throughout the week to your abilities, fitness level and birth experience; classes are mix of cardio, strength training and toning classes as well as stretching and will be indoors and outdoors.

Silver Spoon mums and dads get two exercise sessions per day as well as two personal training sessions throughout the week.  For those booking for Exclusive Use, you'll have as many fitness sessions as you like, as a couple or on your own.  Either way, you’ll be sure of a dedicated personalised service, really getting to grips with elements important to your fitness.  You will also receive a Personal Training Plan to take home with you and a follow up telephone or in-person consultation with Caroline after you get back home.



The Silver Spoon retreat is also a Silver Spoon dining experience.  One of our set of trusted local and international chefs will prepare delicious fresh, modern French cuisine every day, whilst bearing in mind our healthy & yummy principles.

Our chefs' food will show you how you can eat healthy delicious food, and they'll be on hand to answer your questions or for an ad-hoc cooking demonstration.  As with the Classic retreat, we'll also arm you with with recipe ideas and shopping lists so you can hit the ground cooking when you get home.  

Wines are specially chosen to complement the cuisine; wine, spirits and soft drinks are included in your retreat.  Tea, coffee, and other soft drinks are available to help yourself at all times.



We provide you with all the feel-good support of the Classic retreat, including our Style Consultation and Identity Reading List, but we also include more treatments and childcare hours as well as the help of a full-time on-call, maternity nurse.  She'll transform your life!  For those coming on an Exclusive Use retreat, childcare and the services of our maternity nurse are unlimited.



Tap into our awesome style tips via our blog and receive retreat-only content once you are signed up to &Breathe. Clothing and beauty product pointers, our favourite shops, exclusive discounts and outfit suggestions are available as well as demo videos and more.  Celebrity Stylist, Emma Bigger, is our Style Consultant for lucky Silver Spoon retreaters.  She'll make spend time on the phone (or in-person for Exclusive Use) getting to know your preferences and lifestyle needs in order to put together the best wardrobe picks just for you.  She'll even help you buy them (Exclusive Use only)!



We're not going to lie: you can really lose sight of who you are when you have a baby.  Clio really struggled with it in her first year as a mum, and we know exactly which resources she found most helpful.  We arm you with a list of sites, advisors, blogs and forums that might just help ease your transition into this whole mum&dad thing.


Bliss out with two massage treatments (or daily for Exclusive Use) per adult during your retreat, with plenty more available, just schedule and pay when you’re here.  Agnes, our masseuse is also trained in reiki, reflexology and baby massage, so you can take your pick of treatments and even get little one involved!

Childcare is available throughout the week in blocks of up to 4 hours, so that you can pop out for trips, lunches or dinners to really reconnect with your partner.  Exclusive Use retreaters can indulge whenever they like!

Maternity nurse

We work with a selection of hugely experienced maternity nurses vetted by the very best agencies in the UK. For Silver Spoon retreats your nurse is on-call every day and overnight to help your baby into a great routine - babies sleep together in her room overnight (really, it works!) in order to give parents a proper rest.  Being able to predict your baby’s needs means you’re able to relax yourself and concentrate on getting fit and healthy.  In addition the nurse is there to answer all your newborn questions and guide you through the minefield of new parenthood.  All you have to do is keep up her good habits when you get home!

Lucky Exclusive Use retreaters get a maternity nurse all to themselves and their own little one(s).



The gorgeous Manoir La Croix de La Jugie is the venue for your revitalising re-boot.  As a rambling family home, it has everything you need for new babies and older children, as well as being the perfect setting for fitness and relaxation.  Read more
