Please arrive promptly on time for your appointment. If you are late the scheduled time cannot be extended and therefore your experience will be shorter.


Shoes cannot be worn inside the stable and slippers are provided for your comfort.


Please switch your phone to silent, you are here to relax!


If you arrive early Please note there is not a waiting room. On a sunny day you are very welcome to make use of the seating outside the stable and enjoy the views, otherwise if raining it may be best to take shelter in your car or visit the beautiful Barlavington Church.


To enhance your experience please allow an extra 20 minutes at the end of your treatment to enjoy an organic tea and slowly float back to reality. (This extra time is not required for Pilates sessions).
