Since its first steps, the home of Mamaheaven has been the beautiful and enchanting Penrhos Court, where we have grown with the wonderful support of Daphne Lambert, owner and chef.
Daphne Lambert runs a wonderful kitchen where fresh, organic ingredients are prepared so they offer the utmost in nutritional value. Bread is baked fresh every day and there is also a fine selection of organic wines. Penrhos Court was the first restaurant to be awarded the Soil Association organic symbol and Daphne Lambert is co-author of the Organic Baby and Toddler Cookbook.
The beautiful bedrooms, in the converted threshing barn, are named after birds found nearby. All are non-smoking and have en-suite bathrooms and organic linen.
ancient buildings renovated with love and care…
This is the oldest part of the manor house, dating from about 1280,
The first floor is constructed into squares of about six feet with the joists and then the floor boards in each square at 90 degrees to the adjacent square, giving a chequer board pattern.
The circle or Celtic cross design of the timber construction in the front gable end, seen from the outside, is called cusping and is just for decoration.
If you are a new Mum or a second or third time Mum, be kind to yourself and book a Mamaheaven retreat. The first time I went, I was so exhausted I was just grateful for the creche so that I could have some time to myself. Actually, I really enjoyed the yoga and came away so energised that I began to think that it wasn't just more sleep I needed but more yoga. I went on a second retreat because I wanted someone to look after me for the weekend. It is my idea of a perfect weekend: delicious and healthy food, an amazing massage, loving ladies to look after me and my baby and morning yoga to get me going, all in a beautiful countryside setting. I came away feeling very loved and nurtured as a mother. It certainly made me feel happier and more loving towards my family when I got home.
