Respite from the modern world

Wilderness exploration.

Belisama’s Retreat is the brain child of British Army Veteran, J P Marriott:

“I got the idea from talking with a former colleague battling with PTSD after serving in Iraq. Escaping into the woods gave him respite from his symptoms and it was working for me too. So I thought: I have to share the woods with other Veterans and give them somewhere to escape to, set up a basha and get back to basics”.
