I thought that I would miss the television, the radio and newspapers, but in all honesty I missed none of these. Shining tree is the most lovely retreat, in wonderful surroundings, hosted by the loveliest people- Kim and James, who made us feel good about ourselves, nothing was too much trouble. The treatments were very good, the retreat very peaceful, and what can I say about the food- absolutely wonderful. Many many thanks for a lovely time. Peggy.
