Welcome to my office in Devon


Author & Journalist Caroline Sylger Jones Hello. I am a freelance journalist & author who has been writing features and reviews on spas, retreats and healthy holidays for international magazines, newspapers and websites since the late 1990s.

I am the founder and editor of healthy travel website Queen of Retreats, which the Telegraph’s Stella magazine recently named one of its Top 10 healthy & wellness websites, and I’m the author of two books on healthy holidays – Body & Soul Escapes and Body & Soul Escapes: Britain & Ireland (Footprint Books).

I also run The Retreat Consultancy, which offers expert advice and a copywriting service to help people set up or improve retreats.

I live in Devon with my husband and young daughter where I go for coastal walks, read a lot (usually in an epsom-salt bath), do daily yoga, take photos, write poetry and try not to overdose on green tea between trips.

My favourite things is to relax with my family at the end of the day, barefoot in pyjamas and preferably in the garden, with the evening sunshine slanting across our faces and a glass of something wonderful in our hands.

Feel free to have a nose around my site and get in touch.
