There is no such thing as a standard Casting for Recovery retreat.

With retreats offered throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland each venue we use is unique, but the one thing they all have in common is that they have been hand-picked to provide women with an opportunity to experience their time in the peaceful surroundings of the countryside at beautiful venues. 

Retreat details

  • Retreats run from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon.
  • Up to 14 women participate in each retreat.
  • Each retreat is supported by a team of staff including healthcare volunteers , casting instructors and fishing guides.
