A unique venue for retreats, seminars, celebrations and accommodation in a tranquil rural setting, within easy reach of London.
This historic house stands in 12 acres of grounds in an area of great scenic beauty and abundant wildlife.
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.
From 1st February Stewart McCredie is in post as director of St Katharine’s. Stewart joins us having run a busy retreat house in Essex, where he oversaw building improvements and extensions. Before applying for the post, Stewart visited St Katharine’s with Gill, his wife, so he could feel ‘dissuaded’ from applying. Instead he was surprised to feel overwhelmingly excited by the possibilities he could see for St Katharine’s and felt he had no choice but to apply. We look forward to what this new phase will bring.
If you would like to know more about St Katharine’s, the Sue Ryder Prayer Fellowship, any upcoming events or have any other enquiries, don’t hesitate to ask.
Thank you for a wonderful afternoon tea. ”
