Debbi, Trev, Maxie Woof, Radley and Rosie, 3 westies, welcome you to Polhilsa House.

This beautiful Victorian Country House is in the parish of Stoke Climsland, near Callington in Cornwall.

We are the 4th family to have owned the house since it was built in late 1800’s. The house still retains many of its original features and has been sympathetically refurbished to create a tranquil haven to all who visit.

Polhilsa House, our dream home welcomes you and it really does feel as though you are being embraced in something gently magical when you walk through the door and gaze at the ornate grand staircase and original tiled hallway. The well established garden has all varieties of trees, bushes, shrubs and plants and nature’s art alchemy can be fully appreciated, to the fallen trees, a home for the micro animal world, to the far reaching views across Bodmin Moor.

The are many places to sit and listen to the birds chirping and the country sounds, watching the sunset. We have an olfactory sensory area and a sunken garden with a firepit, surrounded by scrubs and bushes, immersed in nature.


All inclusive of accommodation, meals, snacks and refreshments

From £255


Nestled in the small hamlet of Polhilsa, near the village of Stoke Climsland lays Polhilsa House Retreat, a 6 bedroomed Victorian Country Home built around 1890.

The Sound and Stillness Retreats are simplistic, heartled Home from Home Retreats for only 4 - 6 people at a time. The emphasis is on gentle Sound Healing, Meditation, Relaxation and being nurtured and looked after by Debbi, the owner and guardian of the land. .You will have lots of free time for yourself and freedom from the outside world. Once the gates are closed you really feel you are in another place, a feeling of a magic land. You will also be welcomed by 3 little Westies aged 12, 10 and 10 who will also shower you with unconditional love during your stay. They form a very lovely part of the retreat as they show us how to slow down life in the fast lane.

The emphasis on this Sound and Stillness Retreat is just that; Sound and Stillness. Using Sound to really become Still. No chatter in your mind or mindless chatter around you. A place to truly BE in your own zone.

The retreat offers 2 nights and almost 3 day of time just for you, nearly 60 hours of You Time. There will be a morning gathering of Sound Healing and Meditation which sets you up for the day and afternoons can be spent reading, journaling, creating, painting or sitting in the garden listening to the birds and natures sounds. Gentle Dru Yoga will be integrated into your stay. It is a time you can bring with you creative projects you wish to complete. You will be doing deep relaxation before you retire for the evening to ensure a good night sleep is enjoyed. It is a time of deep healing within and without. As soon as you come through the gates of Polhilsa House Retreat you feel yourself begin to unwind and relax.

Debbi will be at hand to gently guide you through the Sound and Stillness process during your stay. She will personally lovingly create your meals which are included. All Sound and Stillness Retreats are fully inclusive.

The bedrooms are cosy and tastefully decorated with very comfortable beds. It is very peaceful with no noise at night except the owls and no light pollution. There a very large bathroom which is shared.
