Jackie Wynia reviewed: Craft Retreat at Wild Rose Escapes, Highlands, Scotland

"It is difficult to describe a perfect vacation which is exaxtly the experience at the Wild Rose Escape Craft Retreat... Perfect! Rosie and her family share their lifestyle selflessly. The fabulous food, crafts, new friendships, and Highland scenery, more than met my expectations. I left the retreat feeling accomplished in my creations and inspired to do more and hoping to return! I highly recommend Wild Rose Escapes!"

" Thank-you Jackie! It was a pleasure to have met you and I'm so glad you enjoyed your time with us. We'd love to have you back again, Many thanks! Yours Rosie"

Mary Barton reviewed: Craft Retreat at Wild Rose Escapes, Highlands, Scotland

"I have just had the most wonderful week, spent in the company of lovely people! Everything about the course was so well organised, even the weather was great! From first thing in the morning with Joanie doing yoga to a lovely leisurely breakfast and then the smashing walks and craft days to a lovely evening meal cooked by Rosie and assisted by Joanie! We really had a very memorable week! We even were visited by Rosie’s lovely children on Halloween who sang to us and told us jokes! Rosie and Joanie are the most delightful hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them, we were even provided with hot water bottles in case we were cold at night! The accommodation was lovely spacious, warm ( we had a lovely log fire each evening) and was set in beautiful grounds. I enjoyed myself so much I’ve already signed up for another course next year! Looking forward to it already!"

" Thank-you so much Mary! it will be so lovely to have you back again next year. Yours Rosie"

Hilary Butcher reviewed: Craft Retreat at Wild Rose Escapes, Highlands, Scotland

"I have just returned from wild rose craftcourse 26th October to 1st November 2019, it exceeded all expectations from Rosie's friendly welcome to her hugging me goodbye! Rosie is and excellent host and cook/chef. She catered for at least four different dietary requirements with ease serving imaginative meals which were healthly and delicious and there was plenty of homemade cakes, bread and fresh fruit everyday ! The accommodation was modern and spacious. Rosie is a fountain of knowledge and her ability and patience is boundless! She enabled everyone to achieve wonderful results when teaching craft skills to make an eco printed scarf, shabori, batik and wet and needle felting, sending them home with the results to show off to family and friends. Well done Rosie 5 STARS from me"

Sara Condron reviewed: Craft Retreat at Wild Rose Escapes, Highlands, Scotland

"From the ride from the station this week was an amazing experience. Alex gave us a great rundown of the local environment we were travelling into allowing for this Aussie to acclimatise. The Stables accommodation was very welcoming and comfortable and perfect for our group of 6. Rosie inspired us all to explore the wonders of Highland crafting with natural dyeing techniques, eco-printing and felting. To be able to use products collected from the local area and create wonderful colours and products was fabulous. Joanie's take on the world gave me food for thought and I have another way of thinking to explore and yoga to take up. The wonderful food cooked for us could be an issue if I'd stayed longer as it was too yummy to resist. Walking through the forests of Glen Affric and Loch Ness was an experience to remember as was the beautiful weather Scotland put on for us. A swim in the loch a bonus. Learning about Scottish crafting heritage and participating in waulking singing with Ele (don't need to be able to sing) was great fun along with an evening of spinning with Ali and visits to local craftspeople. Was very sad to leave and hope I will have an opportunity to go back in the future"

Wild Rose Escapes responded:

" Dear Sara, Thank-you for your lovely review- i'm so glad you enjoyed your break from travels with us, it was a pleasure to have met you..and i'm so glad you got a chance to have a dip in a Scottish loch! Hopefully see you again when you next visit the UK. Yours Rosie"
