The Workhouse is a luxury health, wellness and fitness retreat set in the secluded rural grounds of Hemingford Park Hall in Cambridgeshire.
We focus on fun, activity and beautiful and nutritious food and we’ll set you up to kick-start a healthy lifestyle. From yoga and strength training to seminars on nutrition, this is a health and wellness retreat that works not only the body but also the mind. Our expert mentors help you to understand what the best exercises are for your body type and how this approach will support you to achieve your health and fitness goals.
We’re personal enough that we can spend the time to help you regardless of your level of fitness and we’re here for anyone between 18 and 80.
As part of your retreat, our on-site chef will prepare exquisite, nutritionally balanced meals, accounting for your particular dietary requirements.
During your time with us, you will stay in one of our secluded, historic luxury cottages, set in beautiful parkland, where you can put your feet up and relax after a day of exercise.
Our retreat is booked by the cottage; not by the room. Each of our cottages has two double bedrooms and so will sleep up to 4 people. You can book a cottage just for you, for you and your partner or for you and some friends.
So what are you waiting for? Retreat Yourself.

During your stay at the Workhouse fitness retreat, our specialist chef will prepare three nutritious meals for you each day. Every meal is prepared on-site with all fresh ingredients and served in the Coach House. You'll experience healthy fine-dining that's purposefully designed to complement your workout. Meals to delight the senses and help you reach your goals.
A core philosophy of the Workhouse fitness retreat is connecting mind and body. During your stay, you will experience the many benefits of yoga. With classes designed to move, stretch and strengthen your body in a range of different ways. Improving your flexibility, balance, posture, core strength and focus. Allowing you time for wellbeing and mindfulness, yoga is an essential part of our retreat and will provide you with a release from stress and tension, leaving you feeling replenished and calm.
The focus of the Workhouse fitness retreat is fun. Regular gyms aren't much fun but we've found that our small groups really enjoy using our outdoor equipment while they're actually stretching their abilities. The bootcamp will challenge you but we know you'll feel so much better at the end of your stay. Sessions are personalised to your ability and your goals so you can get the most out of being here.
During your fitness holiday, you will experience the Workhouse spin studio. If you're new to spinning, or slightly unsure, our mentors will give you all the education you need so you can spin with confidence. For well-practised spinners, we'll make sure we get those endorphins rushing. All of our classes include showing you the many benefits that spinning can provide to your fitness.
At the Workhouse, we are proud that we are one of the few UK fitness retreats with an onsite assault course. This fun, outdoor activity is truly a unique experience and gives you the opportunity to get outside to enjoy the fresh air and move your body in new ways. On this fitness retreat, you'll find that we love breaking the norm and helping you discover exercise styles that are fun, exhilarating and will make you embrace your inner warrior.
Included in your stay during the retreat is complete access to our comprehensive on-site gym, containing treadmills, free weights, and machine-assisted workouts. As our gym is exclusive to our guests, you can use this modern equipment to do a little extra training, or practice what you've learned during your stay. Use this luxury fitness suite to explore your future fitness routine so that you can build a healthier lifestyle when you get back to your daily life.
It's just not a luxury fitness holiday unless you're surrounded by tranquillity and pure relaxation. During your time at the Workhouse, you will enjoy one of our secluded luxury cottages, that sleep up to 4 people, set in the private grounds of Hemingford Park Hall, where you can relax and put your feet up after a day of activity and exercise.
