the RECONNECT retreat
16TH-19TH APRIL 2024
A four-day retreat designed for strong women who feel the pull to reconnect with themselves. Come with me on this adventure and say yes to the unknown; step well out of your comfort zone and feel the magic of reconnection.
Life and business can be heavy. The constant juggle of keeping all the plates spinning can often mean we lose sight of what powerful women we are. Rather than a life of adventure and surprise, it can feel a little more like a fire fight.
I’m looking for women who want to reconnect with their inner adventure seeker. You’ll be a courageous soul just waiting for the right opportunity to say YES and step outside of your comfort zone.
How does this sound?
Climbing Mount Snowdon (Wales’ highest mountain)
Abseiling and learning to rope climb
with a highly experienced leader
introduction to Cold water therapy
Spending time with a new group of like-minded women
and building connections you’d otherwise not make
staying in a tucked away mountain hotel
with all of your meals fully catered and none of the washing up!

I’m Faye Cornhill and I’ll be your host for
the reconnect retreat
If we’ve not crossed paths before, then hello, it’s lovely to virtually meet you, and I look forward to meeting you in person very soon! I’m a Business & Mindset coach who helps creative entrepreneurs to build businesses that are sustaining as well as successful.
Courage and Adventure are two of my core values. I strongly believe that stepping out of your comfort zone and saying YES, in spite of the fear, is where the real magic happens.
I see so many wildly capable women craving an opportunity to say YES. Adventure sounds exciting but perhaps it doesn’t ever really feel accesible. Because life comes along and grabs your attention.
It might sound cheesy, but I know that so much of my success has come from me normalising the dis-comfort zone. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE cosy, it’s my speciality… but I’m fully aware that growth does not happen here. So come with me, outside of your comfort zone. I promise you’ll love it there.
ARE YOU THE WOMAN I’M LOOKING FOR?
mountain hotel retreat
Our home for the 3 nights will be this beautiful mountain hotel nestled at the bottom of Mount Snowdon. This historic climbers retreat is where the first ever team to summit Everest trained for their climb. It’s steeped in history and is set in the most idyllic spot.
mount snowdon hike with leader
We will be summitting Mount Snowdon together with our highly qualified mountain guide. It’s hard to explain the magic at the top of this mountain but expect tears, hugs and plentiful good vibes as together we summit Wales’ highest mountain.
abseiling and rock climbing
As if climbing a mountain wasn’t enough of an adventure, we will together abseil a beautiful crag deep in Snowdonia National Park. During the whole session we will focus on confidence building and team work in a relaxed, safe, natural environment.
cold water swimming
We will have access to our very own private lake for our time in Wales so I will be giving you the opportunity to join me in some cold water exposure. The extensive health benefits of cold water exposure are enormous and the power of saying I DID IT will stay with you a lifetime.
The hotel retreat will be fully catered including a hearty walkers breakfast, a delicious packed lunch (to keep us going on the mountain), and an amazing 3 course evening dinner. The food here is incredible. Plus not a dot of clearing up or washing up to do. Relax in the snug and enjoy a hot chocolate, a glass of bubbles or a pint of Snowdon ale!
a new sense of
You will leave this retreat feeling stronger, more determined, more confident than ever; you’ll have reminded yourself what you’re capable of. Stepping back into every day life and business you will bring with you a renewned sense of possibility. You will experiece the knock on effect of this retreat in your life and business. Plus you’ll have made a new band of sisters on the same journey.
Tues 16th April
You will arrive at our mountain retreat mid afternoon and you’ll have plenty of time to unpack, make yourself at home and have a wander around the grounds. Our first cold water therapy experience will take place early evening. At 7pm we’ll be treated to a 3 course dinner followed by a tipple in the snug and a briefing for the next mornings climb!
Wed 17th April
We’ll be up early and after a hearty breakfast we will start to climb Snowdon. Along the way we will take breaks to refresh, eat, take photos and connect with ourselves and the surroundings. Once we’ve all sumitted we’ll make our way back down to the hotel and I’ll be inviting you to join me in the lake for our second cold water experience (we can also hop in the sauna!) In the evening we will settle in for our 3 course celebration meal.
Thurs 18th April
Today we’ll head off to meet our mountain leader who will show us how to abseil in one of the most beautiful areas of the national park. We’ll then also learn how to rock climb. We’ll enjoy lunch in the beautiful mountains followed by a group swim in the lake. Again we’ll be treated to a yummy 3 course meal.
Fri 19th April
After a hearty breakfast we will spend a moment in our closing circle. This is an opportunity to share with the other women in the group exactly how far you’ve come and any intentions you’ll be taking back into your every day life. A group photo, hugs and goodbyes as everyone leaves our mountain retreat.
What dates will the retreat be on?
16th – 19th April. Arrival/check out time will be confirmed nearer the time.
Where is the retreat?
In the heart of Snowdonia National Park in Wales.
Who is the retreat for?
This retreat is designed for strong women who feel a pull to reconnect with themselves and nature. The ideal woman will be excited AND a little bit scared of coming on the retreat but she’ll know the magic that will unfold when she says yes.
Will we have an expert with us?
Absolutely! Even though we’d be free to climb the mountain unaided, I have hand picked a fabulous female mountain leader who is fully trained and experienced to support us. She will be with us on the mountain and will also be taking us abseiling.
How many people will be on the retreat?
To offer you all the most incredible experience I only have space for 19 attendees.
How fit do I need to be?
This is an active retreat. You will be hiking substantial hills and mountains. Expect uneven, boggy and rocky terrain with sustained ascents and descents. Paths can be less obvious or undefined. A good level of fitness and stamina is required.
Will I need to share a room with someone?
There is an option to upgrade to a private room but yes, most of you will be sharing with a fellow retreat member. Of course you’ll of course have your own bed. If you have friends attending, let me know and I will do my best to group you together. The rooms share bathrooms with other retreat guests but are plentiful (including a roll top bath room!)
Can you cater for my dietary requirements?
Absolutely! Just let me know and we will cater for any requirements you have.
Can I attend if I'm pregnant?
I wouldn’t recommend coming on this adventure if you are pregnant.
Can I cancel?
Due to the very limited number of spaces, all sales are final.
I'm scared - does this mean I'm not right?
Absolutely not – the perfect attendee is someone who is in equal measure excited and scared!
Are the activities optional?
Whilst everything is optional, it is expected that you will be attending all of the activities we have planned.
Do I need any special walking kit?
We will send a full kit list nearer the time but don’t panic – as long as you have some walking boots, you’ll be great!
How should i get to wales?
The easiest way to get to the hotel is by car and there is plenty of parking. If you don’t have a car you can head to Wales by train – Bangor being the nearest large station which is around 30 minutes away. We encourage car sharing where possible and in the run up to the trip we will create a whatsapp group for everyone to meet and arrange car shares.
