    About Us

    The doors are to open again....

    It is with a sense of great relief that we are able to re-open our doors from the 17th May.

    This all fits in with the Road-Map announced by the authorities previously. So what does it mean for you in respect to taking some time out?

    We are once again able to accommodate individuals and groups of up to 6 people for quiet days, overnight retreats, afternoon teas etc. There is still some social distancing guidelines that we have to adhere to but we don’t see these impacting negatively on your time here.

    Of course, the next big step in this incredible journey is the 21st June when we hope to be able to open up to the ‘new reality’ where many of the restrictions currently in place are relaxed. At the time the new guidelines are clear we will update accordingly.

    We are greatly encouraged by the number of bookings we are receiving for the rest of this year and would like to encourage you to consider taking some intentional time out to rest, relax and refresh.

    Keep safe, keep well and we look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

    Forthcoming Events

    What we offer

    Whether you want to come by yourself or as a group, for a few hours or a whole week, we offer a range of possibilities.

    2021 Programme of Retreats & Quiet Days

    It has been a challenge to decide what to do as far as events for the early part of this year. The couple we did look at have been postponed until there is some certainty around restrictions lifting.

    We are running 3 Quiet Days in Holy Week. These will be online and more details can be found on our Events page.

    Please click on the picture opposite for more details.

    Please contact the office to book on to one or more of these.

    • Quiet Days will cost £35 to also include lunch. Arrival is from 9:30am for a 10:00am start. The days will end around 3:30/4:00 with Tea/Coffee and cake.
    • 2 night Retreats will cost £185 on the basis of an ensuite room and all meals. Retreats will generally begin with Supper at 6:30 on the first evening finishing after lunch on the final day.

    Booking forms and further information can be obtained by contacting the office.

    This programme does not prevent parishes, staff teams, individuals etc from booking retreats and quiet days as previously.

    The success of the weekend was helped ... by the quality of the accommodation ... the generous provision of our food but perhaps most of all the staff
