We have had such a relaxing time. Ladderstile is the perfect place to escape to for some time out. As busy working parents we have so benefitted from slowing down in this beautiful setting.

Tim enjoyed the Reiki so much and he is starting to notice the difference, he said " it is like someone had pressed my reset button, I'm feeling like I'm back on track" So in a way I achieved even more than I was looking for. Certainly you will see me again!! Thank you so much!Natali

When my husband and I decided that I needed some time out to rest, read my bible, pray and plan, little did we dream that we`d find a place so idyllic as this for me to come! Beautiful, perfectly decorated suite of rooms, wonderful hospitality, gorgeous food time and again, and a lovely relaxing Aromatherapy massage! And my walk in the snowy fields made it seem a little piece of paradise. Thanks so much, Rose, for being a most warm and attentive hostess. I feel very rested, and very well pampered and I`m planning on bringing my hubby here next time so he can enjoy it too! What a find. Cathy
