Joanne Jepson, Founder/Director at Bliss Retreats commented:

“Everyone needs to take a break now and then; life’s hectic demands can prevent us from paying attention to our body, mind, and soul. That’s why Bliss Retreats offer a secure sanctuary, providing an opportunity to re-establish a connection while enjoying some much-needed time off.

“The British Business Bank and its partner BizBritain have been a great help in getting this business idea fully realised. We have made great strides already and are looking forward to all the people our business is going to be able help.”
