Make A Booking
We have now opened our doors for guests to enjoy relaxation, refreshment and begin their journey towards wholeness. We are offering a number of different Residential Retreats: Walking into your Healing, Personal and Silent-weekend Retreats, as well as a Retreat weekend for those in their 20s and 30s.
Please review our programme for 2021 HERE
The Centre will be closed to the public on Monday and Tuesday each week. Retreats are available from Tuesday afternoons (3pm) to after lunch on Sunday (2pm). Guests are asked to vacate their rooms by midday on the day of departure to allow us sufficient time to clean the rooms for new guests. A minimum of 2-night stay is required to secure a booking. We regret that at this time we are unable to provide transportation from and to the railway station or from local bus routes.
We have a limited bursary for front-line workers within the medical, social and spiritual care areas, who have been directly supporting Covid-19 patients and their families (within the hospital and the community setting).

COVID-19 Precautions while required
We are taking every precaution on-site, but you will need to understand that we are unable to guarantee a virus-free environment. Guest numbers will be limited each week and our small residential Team will be looking after guests to ensure we can maintain 2-metre social distancing at mealtimes and within communal rooms. Masks must be worn in accordance with the prevailing government regulations.
Please remember: HANDS - FACE - SPACE
NHS Test & Trace QR Codes are available on-site to register via the NHS Test & Trace App.
The Team will also ensure a regular cleaning regime of any communal spaces with particular attention to high-touch areas. Meal tables will be sanitised between mealtimes and the Butler’s Pantry where we would normally serve drinks and snacks will be closed for the duration of your retreat. Contactless payment is facilitated up to the prevailing limits per transaction.
During times of prayer ministry, we will need to maintain social distancing in a well-ventilated room or in an open space, weather permitting.
Our bookshop will be open, but we ask that you maintain social distancing and do not handle the books or merchandise until you have decided to purchase an item. Any items you have touched but decide not to buy must be put into the quarantine box. These items will be removed from sale for 72 hours.
