2021 My HR Club retreat photo collage.

Last week the My HR Club team headed to the beautiful Derbyshire peaks for our 3-day 2-night annual My HR Club Luxury Retreat.

While the word ‘retreat’ may bring up visions of nettle tea, compulsory yoga and a strict bedtime – our retreat was all about relaxation, good food, good company and time out from the chaos of everyday life.

After the past 18 months we’ve all been through, we knew our HR professional and business leaders were in desperate need of some time away to relax and recuperate. For our third annual retreat we headed to a new venue – the picturesque and spacious Oak Tree Farm.

Complete with a games room and bar, wood-fired hot tub, ensuite bedrooms and gorgeous views across the peaks, the venue was the perfect setting for some R&R for all our hard working guests.

Our flexible itinerary included relaxing walks across the peaks, massages and treatments by qualified practitioners using Weleda prodicts, workshops offering wellbeing advice from Weleda Wellbeing Advisors, locally sourced meals, vision board exercises, pumpkin carving and more.

While we had this itinerary in place, guests are encouraged to do whatever helps them relax and are free to spend their time how they want.

Highlights from the retreat include:

  • 3 days and 2 nights in a remote, luxurious house in the stunning Peak District
  • Delicious locally sourced meals served 3 times a day
  • On-site massages, facials and footbaths provided by qualified Weleda practitioners
  • Peaceful walks around the surrounding hills and villages of the peak district
  • Optional vision boarding and coaching card sessions
  • Scandinavian style wood fired hot tub

We hope that the retreat was everything our guests expected – and more. We loved every minute of the time we spent there and getting know each other. Some of the feedback we received includes:

“From the moment we arrived we have been very spoilt, all the team have been very kind, thoughtful and generous”
