Welcome to


Welcome to Thorney How

A retreat venue in Grasmere, the Lake District

Blissfully tranquil, and nestled in the heart of the Lake District, Thorney How is designed to offer a nurturing space to support retreat leaders, creatives, coaches and entrepreneurs create their perfect experience.

Imagine a retreat that begins with a long slow deep breath while absorbing the surrounding woodland and mountain views; then an exhale where the cares of daily life are relinquished, time begins to slow down and the transformation begins.  It’s time to switch off and make connections within, with others and with nature to create a truly memorable experience.
