Join us for an inspiring day-retreat in the beautiful, peaceful surroundings of the Oxford countryside. Relax and enjoy our expert-led sessions on looking good and eating well for summer. We’ve included a delicious, healthy lunch and masses of easy tricks and tips to inspire you. There’s even a take-home goody bag to keep those new intentions going. We can’t wait to welcome you….!


Arrive in time to admire our beautiful venue and meet the team over coffee.

Our morning session will be led by Ashley Keen. Ashley is a trained chef who has cooked all over the world keeping the uber-rich well fed on their super yachts. She is also a qualified personal trainer with a special interest in free-from, fermentation and plant-based cooking. When not giving talks on fermentation at Soho Farmhouse or inspiring the Adidas team you may have spotted Ashley live on stage at CountryFile Live, last year. Or caught her on the BBC Sounds podcast talking about the Art of Fermentation.

After inspiring us with her talk and demonstration, Ashley will serve a delicious two course lunch with kombucha.

After lunch, we’ll meet Laura Mortimer. Professionally trained in mime, physical theatre and drama, Laura has also worked as an actress and voice artist. More recently, an interest in the transformative power of makeup and a passion for helping women to look and feel their best, inspired Laura to train as a makeup artist.

Today, Laura will demonstrate for us, a natural, summer look for daytime. Her easy style and expert advice will give you new confidence and skills with makeup to enhance your everyday look. We’ll look at basic colour theory, the psychology of makeup and a range of products and colours. Bring your makeup bag, a mirror and be ready to try something new…!

After both sessions there’ll be plenty of time to meet our experts and ask questions.


Ashley Keen and Laura Mortimer are professionally trained experts in their very different fields. Both are passionate about bringing you new ideas and easy techniques to transform your table and your summer looks.
