September Peaceful Pregnancy Retreat

- June 28, 2018 -

Peaceful Pregnancy Retreat Craigbittern Friday 7th to Sunday 9th September – Peaceful Pregnancy Retreat


If you’re a mum to be, or know a mum to be who deserves a pre-baby pamper, join us for a Peaceful Pregnancy Retreat from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th September, at Craigbittern House, on the Solway Coast.

Yoga teacher Moira Forsyth and hypnobirthing practitioner Catherine Jackson from Dumfries and Galloway based Peaceful Pregnancy will guide you through a weekend of yoga and hypnobirthing while relaxing in the splendid coastal setting of Craigbittern. You don’t need any experience of either yoga or hypnobirthing, and Moira’s yoga is very gentle – designed for the changing shape of the pregnant body.

Happy Clients who have stayed with us

  • We were very fortunate to stay at Craigbittern with our friends while we had a weekend in Sandy Hills. It's a gorgeous, well appointed house with everything thought out. The kitchen is fully equipped, there's a game room, a den, a nice sitting room, a living room with a fire place, a full-dining etc. Really recommended for a big group of friends or family. Craigbittern is big enough for people to go about their own thing - go for a walk on the beach, read, watch movies, enjoy the fire in the living room, play pingpong, nap, etc. Can't wait to go back and enjoy a weekend away from the city!

  • The beautiful views of the Irish Sea from the house led me into a morning run to the beach to discover a stunning landscape of green hills, shallow waters and steep cliffs. Definitely made an exceptional start to my Saturday! The house is furnished to a very high standard and made us feel cost and warm. For those wanting to spend quality time with their friends, this is the perfect retreat (the house accommodates 13 people!).
    Manuel Fernandez Isabel- Craigbittern
  • We stayed in the winter and it was a warm, beautiful and we'll equipped base from which to explore - really luxurious!! We will be back
    Thom Groot- Craigbittern
  • Perfect is the only way to describe this property and it's surroundings. The house itself set in a stunning location, with each room furnished to a very high standard is so warming and welcoming. If you can pull yourself away from the property, you are never short of things to do, with the beach across the road and coastal walk to the beautiful coastal villages Rockliffe and Kippford. Such an amazing place, perfect for a family get together or group of friends, can't recommend enough. Will definitely be back in the near future.
    Kristofer Lorimer- Craigbittern
  • What a perfect place to celebrate with friends! The house is beautiful with real fires and huge sofas to relax on with a film, book or just enjoy the wonderful sea views - the beach is just across from the house. We had fun playing table tennis in the games room! The surrounding area is great for walking but I found it hard to leave the house and gardens as this is one of the most relaxing places I have ever stayed at!
    Ros Rowcroft- Craigbittern
