“Incredible food

- every meal was absolutely delicious and it was abundant which is the best thing” 

Paula, January ‘23 Retreat

The food at our retreats is always beautiful

Sandy, who owns Dartmoor Larder, is our retreat chef. She creates each menu to be nutritious, flavoursome and satisfying. We love to enjoy the seasonal produce that is so abundant here in Devon. That includes vegetables and fruit from our own gardens, bread from our local bakeries and preserves made at home.

Sandy can cater for any nutritional requirement or restriction at all. Don’t like aubergines? Need to eat dairy-free? No problem! We promise that there will be food that you will love.


This is Sandy. She and I have known one another for around eight years, and have been working together since 2019.

Together we created these retreats to be the beautiful, easy, safe spaces that they are.

Sandy prepares and cooks our meals at the retreats. She really loves chatting about the ingredients she’s using, so you can get involved if you want to. There’s always a little surprise as well - I love it when Sandy turns up with an amazing cake or something new to taste!

You’ll discover that Sandy is not only a fabulous chef, she’s also one of the kindest and most generous people I know.

We all loved Sandy because everything she made was with love which is the best ingredient of all !
