Your Weekend Outline

Arrival time is between 15-17.30 where you’ll be greeted by a member of the team. Your Mentor will host a 1-hour session between 18:00-19:00 to welcome everyone, during which you’ll get to know your fellow guests and introduce yourselves.

The session will include an overview of what to expect from the weekend, and to start to think about what you’re hoping to achieve from the Retreat. This session will cater to the participants in attendance and so may include an introduction / a refresher on The Model, and the rules of the mind in preparation for your discussions.

Your breakfasts for the weekend will be delivered and can be stored in the shared kitchen fridge, or in the mini fridge located in your own private accommodation.

After breakfast, you’ll start the day by exploring your own agenda points with the group, identifying what you would like to achieve from the weekend, challenges you might be facing and how you can manage your mind. A working lunch of sandwiches and cakes will be provided.

During the afternoon, you’ll break for a few hours, offering time to explore the local towns, take in a walk or take advantage of some time to yourself to rest and reflect on the discussions so far.

You’ll return to the sessions for a further few hours of discussion, following which you’ll have free time in the evening for dinner. Previous guests have visited local pubs or restaurants together as a group or have used the onsite kitchen facilities to prepare dinner themselves.

For your final session on Sunday morning, this will be an opportunity to reflect on your discussions from the previous day, thinking about what resonated, your individual plans moving forward, look at what could derail you from actioning your plans following retreats, and have a plan in place for that. You will then say your farewells and depart from the Coach House by 12:00, when you can visit some of the local attractions or a walk in the Peak District before starting your onward journey. 

Group Bookings

If you would like to make a group booking to attend the retreat together as a group, or you are interested in arranging a retreat exclusively for your own party, please get in touch and we can book these in for you directly. We can offer Retreats for up to 8 people, lasting 1 day through to multiple nights, during the week or over weekends.

About The Coach House

Our venue is the 19th-century converted Coach House, located within the breathtaking Peak District National Park, and a short drive from the local towns of Buxton and Castleton. It nestles quietly behind Bennetston Hall which is currently being restored.

The Coach House has been designed to be used specifically for Retreats, as part of Prof Peters’ vision to offer a place where people can learn about the human mind and help them to understand themselves better.

The secluded dwelling hosts 8-ensuite bedrooms, and a large communal space for Retreats, with views overlooking the Peak District. The compact onsite kitchen is fully equipped with all the essential amenities.

Please note that the property can be challenging to reach on foot as there is no footpath on the main road outside.

Free on-site parking.

FAQ about your stay

Where is it?

Our Retreats take place at the Coach House at Bennetston Hall – The Coach House, Dove Holes, Buxton, Derbyshire, SK17 8EY

Facilities include eight en-suite bedrooms, a meeting room and a kitchen.

Is there catering?

Yes! We provide a locally sourced continental breakfast basket for each delegate as well as a working lunch on Saturday. The evenings are free for you to explore the local restaurants (we can guide you). If you wish to prepare your own meals, there is a small, fully-functioning kitchen available for all guests to use.

I’m fairly new to The Model, having recently read one of Prof Peters’ books; will this retreat be suitable for me?

The Mind Management Skills for Life: A follow up is suitable only for those who have previously attended a Mind Management Skills for Life 8-stage programme with a Chimp Management Mentor or have read A Path Through the Jungle. All other retreats can be catered to the participants level of knowledge, however, where possible and for your own benefit, we would recommend that all guests have some understanding of The Model prior to attending. The pace and discussions over the Retreat will be at the pace of the participants and guided by your Mentor.

Can I travel to the Coach House by train?

The nearest train stations are Dove Holes, and Buxton. Please note that we do not provide transport during the weekend and so you would need to make arrangements of your own to travel between the station and the Coach House.

Can I book an extra night's accommodation at The Coach house for before/after the Retreat?

Unfortunately, we are unable to permit guests to book accommodation for beyond the dates included, and so we would recommend that you book alternative accommodation for the additional dates that you require.

Will there be a member of staff staying on site?

Our staff generally don’t stay on site however, you will be provided with emergency contact numbers for members of staff who live nearby and will be on call for anything you may need during your stay.

Do you cater to dietary requirements?

Yes. When booking, we ask you to share any requirements with us so that we can cater appropriately to your needs.

How long does it last?

The Retreat begins on Friday evening when we greet you and have the first welcoming session. Saturday will have guided discussions and some time out to explore the local villages, such as Castleton and Buxton. The weekend closes at lunchtime on Sunday.

My significant other and I would like to attend together. Do we need to book separate rooms?

Yes. The cost of your booking includes a room for one person over 2 nights, breakfast for each morning, and lunch on the Saturday. If you wish to share a room, you would need to book individual places / rooms, including at least one double room.
