A unique venue for retreats, seminars, celebrations and accommodation in a tranquil rural setting, within easy reach of London.
This historic house stands in 10 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.
Are you looking for somewhere to hold a Christmas Lunch?
We are offering a lovely variety of seasonal dishes and the wonderful atmosphere of St Katherine’s. Catering for up to 30 people, the meal will be served in the entrance hall in front of a lovely, open log fire.
Please contact Lucy for further details.
We have been working hard behind the scenes putting together a programme of retreats and quiet days for 2020.
At my previous house, and of course many retreat houses across the country, these are wonderfully uplifting events. We have attempted to get a good variety of topics for this first year. We pray that there is something there for everyone.
Please click here for the 2020 Programme Booklet. We hope that there are at least one or two events there that attract you. Please contact the office to book on to one or more of these.
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.
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. ”
