A little bit about your host Maggie Paterson

I have been a dance a teacher at Pineapple Dance Studios for over 40 years teaching ballet and jazz at all levels, for 25 years I have been the Principal and directed a very busy school Pineapple Performing Arts School also at the studios in Covent Garden.

After experiencing a minor breakdown several years ago, due to exhaustion, mental and physical burn-out, I was forced to look at my lifestyle and accepted that things had to change.

As a big fan of wellbeing retreats (I’ve been on many over the years) I was determined to set up my own retreats that would exploit my professional skills-set but most of all, cater for those people, like me, who need a private and enriching few days of self-nourishment.

I am proud to be working alongside my partner Graham and fellow professionals who make up the Sunsetbay Wellbeing family and can’t wait to welcome you at one of our retreats in the future.

"Maggie and her team are absolutely fabulous and the 5 days were perfectly put together and delivered to the highest standard. Accommodation and the food were also exceptional."


“The most amazing 5 days ever!! Fantastic Chapel, fantastic hosts, Maggie and Graham and the rest of their team! The most delicious and wholesome vegan food I’ve ever tasted.”


“Do as much or as little as you like it’s up to you but each time I’ve gone back it’s been a different experience but always an enjoyable one with great hosts Maggie and Graham and not forgetting Smudge .”


“I certainly recommend this retreat. It was an amazing experience and great activities: yoga, guided walks, sound healing, mindfulness & paddle boarding. But what made it warm & special was due to Maggie & Graham. Their kind, welcoming & attentive nature was something I haven’t experienced in other retreats. I will be definitely going back again. Thank you for a great experience 🙏.”
