Rest & Reflect

Rest & Reflect – open Wednesday – 4.30 –  7.30pm & Saturday 1.30 – 4.30pm 

It is important that you look after yourself,  from getting enough sleep, keeping stress levels down, eating well and exercising outside.

  • We are open for free drop-ins, giving you time and space to “be” in a calm, safe environment, whilst relaxing in beautiful natural surroundings.
  • Regular exercise has been proven to fight fatigue and boost energy levels, so visit Lindengate, where you will be able to take time for yourself in our 5 acre therapeutic gardens and wildlife haven.
  • Why not reconnect with work colleagues, community groups, friends or family at Lindengate?  Bring refreshments or a picnic and catch up in our gardens.
  • Children are welcome to visit and take part in our nature trail quiz.
