Healthy Minds Nourishing Retreats

Our Devon Wellness Retreats are for women who want something different

It’s easy to lose our sense of identity in the busy-ness of life


Coming to a retreat is a lovely way to create a pause in that busy-ness and re-discover who you are and what you want from your life.


Sally Potter is the founder of Healthy Minds Nourishing Retreats. She is a qualified and experienced expert in Solution Focused Therapy and Hypnotherapy.


A Healthy Minds Retreat is a place to rest with expert attention from Sally, to explore how our brains work to create stress and anxiety. Throughout the retreat, you’ll be guided to finding your own strategies for living a calm and confident life. A joyful life.


Set on the Southern tip of Dartmoor in South Devon, we have an incredible location for our transformational retreat. Pair this with luxury accommodation and delicious food prepared on site by chef Sandy, and it’s a recipe for magical transformation.

“Sally’s retreat was so relaxing and special. The atmosphere was warm and accepting and I felt safe to be myself completely. I had never been on a retreat before and would highly recommend this one. If you want to feel relaxed, rejuvenated and inspired, then go on Sally’s retreat. Thank you 🤩”

Local experts

We have a wealth of expertise to draw upon. From watercolour workshops to magical sound journeys, reflexology* and colour styling*, our wellness retreat can be as full or as quiet as you want it to be.

We put together the itinerary to include activities that relax, connect and nourish our whole selves. Free time to do nothing is an important part of that too!

Group workshops and relaxation sessions are all included in the price of the retreat.

*there’s an extra charge for one to one treatments, which can be booked at the same time as you reserve your room, or later, depending on availability.

“I enjoyed the whole experience, Sally's perfectly put together itinerary was flexible but so thoughtfully arranged, everyone and everything was a joy……

Just a wonderful enjoyable experience”.

Kathryn Anderson - January ‘23 retreat
