Project description:

In brief

My Retreat has been invited to provide luxury spa therapies at The Grange on the stunning Blagdon Estate. We are raising funds in order to decorate, equip and stock the room in our distinctive style.

As a business that values and promotes a personal connection, we thought it would be a great idea to give our loyal clients and supporters the opportunity to get involved – and benefit from the results!

In detail

My Retreat was launched by Julia Murray less than three years ago and has since flourished. It was her passion to create a therapy business that would provide customers with the quality of treatments they may expect at a top hotel, but with a holistic approach and a personal touch.

Julia is an inspiring woman, having broken free from a 25-year teaching career, and with determination and commitment has created a very successful business with newly discovered skills and talents. Julia’s vision is driven by her high standards and attention to detail, something that her clients value too.

Our clients say:

We believe that we provide something quite different – luxury spa therapies with a personal approach, ensuring you feel comfortable, pampered and very special.  Products, amenities, colours, music, and aromas - all are carefully chosen to help you have the ultimate relaxation experience.  

A country hideaway to rival our coastal haven

The Grange is a Grade II listed building on the Blagdon Estate near Morpeth, Northumberland.  It has been lovingly restored by the owners to provide first class bed and breakfast accommodation, a wedding venue and a tearoom. There couldn’t be a more perfect location to open the second branch of My Retreat.

The therapy room is on the first floor – and currently is empty awaiting our magic touch. Original features remain, like the beautiful fireplace, window shutters and doors, which we will honour in our design for the room. We will also take into account the Georgian style of the home and reflect the beautiful décor already created in the rest of the house.


Why are we crowd funding?

My Retreat is a small, burgeoning, independent business that is ambitious too! We’ve only just returned from our first Retreat in Spain – and all of our capital has been spent on the setup costs over there. We had no idea a brilliant opportunity like this was around the corner - and we don’t want to let it pass us by.

The funds raised will be used to pay for the furniture and equipment in the room, the décor and the stock of products needed to create the perfect retreat. If we are lucky enough to go beyond our target we would invest in the marketing materials, more amenities such as robes and slippers … and potentially a hot tub!


In return for your pledges, we have some fabulous rewards – in reduced price therapies, exclusive deals and much more.

Thank you in advance. Your rewards will be in heaven…well, actually our therapy room – but it’s almost the same thing!
