Booking a retreat

To book online, please select a retreat from our retreat calendar page and then use the book online button. You can choose to pay full or concessionary rate or, to book a provisional place on a retreat, just the £70 deposit, which is non-returnable and non-transferable. We can immediately confirm bookings when made online.

If you wish to book by post, please select a retreat from our retreat calendar page and then use the ‘book by post’ button to generate a printable booking form which you can then send together with full payment or a  £70 deposit, which is non-returnable and non-transferable.

A deposit will hold your place until six weeks before the retreat starts at which point you must pay the full balance (failure to do so may result in losing your place on the retreat). The balance can be paid through this website – select the retreat you have paid a deposit for, then the balance owing option. Other ways to pay, e.g. online bank transfer, are detailed in the information sheet that will be sent along with your booking confirmation.

If booking within the six-week period before the retreat, you will need to send the full amount.

If you know in advance you are unable to arrive on the day a retreat starts, or would need to leave before the final day, your booking is unlikely to be accepted. This is to protect retreat conditions for fellow retreatants. If you feel you have exceptional circumstances, please get in touch to discuss with the retreat leader.

Please note that we are unable to accept bookings from people under the age of 18. About half of our accommodation is in shared rooms. We have ten single rooms, which can only be reserved in the case of significant medical conditions. If you have particular needs, please contact us for clarification before booking. We ask that you do not request to share a room with your partner.

It is essential that we know whether you have mental or physical health issues or are on any serious medication.

Information about what to bring, travel, public transport and other useful info will be sent to you upon making a booking. If you would like this information before you book, please contact us (see below for links).
