You may choose to welcome your guests with drinks in the Entrance Hall where in winter, a blazing log fire adds to the ambience.

Our Chapel (main hall) lends itself to training days, workshops and conferences. Up to 80 people can be seated in rows or at circular tables and our catering staff will be happy to cater for your event.

As well as the main hall, other rooms can be hired for meetings and your guests are welcome to stay overnight. We can tailor meals to suit your requirements and budget, and most dietary requirements can be met. Unlimited tea and coffee are included. We do not have a alcohol license but you are welcome to provide your own alcoholic drinks.

We have ample car parking on site. Guests coming by train can take a taxi from High Wycombe, Marlow or Henley-on-Thames. We are approximately 35 minutes drive from Heathrow Airport and taxis can be booked by prior arrangement.

Retreats & Quiet Days

For 2020 we have also put together a programme of led Retreats and Quiet Days.

If you follow this link, 2020 Retreats and Quiet Days, you will find a list of all our events for this year.

Open Day

It is hoped that in 2020, we will be holding an Open Day, in conjunction with the Lady Ryder Memorial Garden. Watch this space for more information when it is available.





Supper Talks

We host several supper talks throughout the year to which all are welcome.

In 2019, we held three very successful talks this year given by Timothy Walker, Jill Eyres and Carole Petipher.

We are currently looking at dates and speakers for this year and these will be publicised when available.

Christmas Lunch at St Katharine's

Through December 2019, we served 111 of our delightful Christmas Dinners. Mary & Julie put together a lovely menu, making use of a lot of produce that was grown in our very own Lady Ryder Memorial Garden.

We are so please to have received so much complimentary feedback and are already looking forward to being able to host groups in December 2020.

Please do bear us in mind next year. Lucy will be able to provide further details later in 2020.

As a ‘taster’ for anyone wondering what the menu choices might be for next year, the 2019 menu can be found by clicking on this link – 2019 Christmas Menu
