    About Us

    Who would have known....

    Following our previous update, who would have known the journey we would still be traveling, individually as well as nationally!

    We’ve just heard of the plans for post 19th July and what that means to each of us. We have been so thrilled to be able to welcome small groups and individuals again over these last weeks and we see the 19th as a point where we can open the front doors even wider and welcome many of you back – or if you haven’t been before, for the first of many times.

    Please follow this link to read our latest update – including details of events coming up in the weeks and months ahead.

    We are currently looking to taken on an Assistant Cook. It may be that, following this last year or so, someone is looking for a change in life-style/direction and this may be of interest to them. ‘Living in’ is an option.

    Let us also remind you that we are here for;

    • Self-led Quiet Days/Retreats for individuals/groups or parishes (up to 36 people can be accommodated residentially).
    • Day events/meetings (up to 80 people can be catered for).
    • Afternoon Teas, Birthday/Anniversary Lunches for those in the local area.

    If you’d like more information around any of these, please contact us – office@srpf.org.uk or Tel: 01494 881037


    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 this year. However, as bookings have been coming in for groups and individuals, we have decided not to lay on many Retreats and Quiet Days for the rest of 2021.

    We are running 3 specific events around Advent and Christmas and more details can be found on our Events page. Please click on the picture opposite.

    • Advent Quiet Day will cost £35 to also include lunch. Arrival is from 9:30am for a 10:00am start. The day will end around 3:30/4:00 with Tea/Coffee and cake.
    • 2 night Advent Retreat will cost £186 on the basis of an ensuite room and all meals. The retreat will begin with Supper at 6:30pm on the Friday finishing after lunch on the Sunday.
    • Sing for Joy will cost £40 to also include a Christmas Dinner. Arrival is from 9:30am for a 10:00am start. The day will end around 3:30/4:00 with Tea/Coffee and mince pies!

    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
