St. Monans Fife
Friday 28th-Sunday 30th April 2023
A restful nourishing weekend for women in the midst of menopause with personalised support from a highly experienced menopause coach and space to reflect on midlife and womanhood.
Are you over forty and not feeling like yourself or in the thick of it going through menopause?
Do you feel a bit lost, not yourself, or isolated and are unsure who to talk to?
Want to feel supported and better about navigating menopause, instead of looking back and wishing for the past?
This weekend retreat is the perfect opportunity to wind down, learn more about what is going on for you, and to spend time with women at a similar stage of life.
Join us to:
- Enjoy personalised support from a highly experienced menopause coach.
- Feel the support of women who understand what it’s like.
- Experience some fun and relaxation away from your usual commitments.
- Immerse yourself in the benefits of delicious organic food, extra sleep, a walk by the sea, a sauna, stories round the fire…
By the end of this weekend you will know that you are not on your own, and you will feel more rested, resourced and resilient going forward into the next stage of your life.
Each guest will have their own room with Fairtrade organic bedding and towels.
Our food is organic and from the garden where possible otherwise sourced locally.

How to find Stenton Farmhouse KY10 2DF https://w3w.co/retraced.decently.writings
From the West
Stenton Farm is 2.5 miles East of Colinsburgh on the B942. Turn right at the Stenton sign along a narrow farm lane. After 250 metres, do NOT follow the road left (to Stenton Farm Cottages) but proceed slowly forward. At the farm gateway, either proceed straight ahead to park in the yard (beside large piles of felled timber) or bear left towards Stenton Farmhouse (see detailed map).
From the East
Follow the B942 from Pittenweem in the direction of Colinsburgh. About half a mile after the turn to Abercrombie, look out for a ‘Tractors turning’ sign and then turn left along the Stenton farm lane. Thereafter, follow the instructions above.
There is car parking available by the house.
