Bella Vista Retreats

Restore your soul, replenish your body and revitalise your life.

A Bella Vista Retreat gives you space to let go of day to day concerns and nourish your body, mind, heart and soul. With its stunning backdrop of sea, sand and cliffs, Bella Vista provides the perfect location to inspire that sense of awe and wellbeing. 

Bella Vista Retreats are a combination of workshops on a holistic theme, times to ‘simply be’, meditation, times of silence, communion in nature, one to one coaching, a relaxing body therapy, heart and soul sharings with great people on the same wave-length - oh! and not forgetting delicious food!

Personal Retreats

A personal retreat is a ‘time for me’. You might be stepping away from a hectic life style, responsiblities at work, a difficult emotional situation, caring for children or loved ones.

Whatever your lndividual circumstance, a personal retreat will give you the indulgence of a time away from your set routines to re-source yourself and see with new perspective.

Bella Vista as a Retreat Venue

Let us enfold you as you as you bring your group to Bella Vista. We can surround you with care, prepare delicious wholesome food and let you do your deep work in the stunning setting of Bella Vista with its awe inspiring sea views.

Experienced in the field, we know how to provide that nurturing atmosphere that will enhance your retreat.
On the first floor we have five luxurious en-suite bedrooms which can either be booked as private rooms or to share, three with stunning sea views.

We can accommodate between five to fourteen people for that intimate and special retreat.

Bella Vista - History

Bella Vista is a deceptively large house with a picturesque garden, overlooking Swanage Bay. Built in 1900, it has had a variety of uses. 

From 1900 to 1934 it was known as The Bungalow and was let as apartments. In 1934 it was renamed Bella Vista and operated as a private hotel until 1940 when it was taken over by the army and used to billet troops including, from 1944, US Army soldiers. Bella Vista re-opened as a private hotel in 1954 and since then has been used for a variety of hospitality offerings including bed and breakfast, retreat centre, whole house summer lets and celebrations.

William and Naomi Duffield took over ownership in October 2017 and very much look forward to welcoming guests from January 2018
