Practical Information


Meditation room
We will provide cushions, as well as chairs which you can use for your meditation. However, if you need several cushions, please bring your own as we do not guarantee more than one cushion per seat.

In the session breaks
During the breaks, you will have plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful scenery that surrounds the house. There are many walks, short or long, and you can also relax in the conservatory. Also at break times each participant helps with small jobs to ensure the smooth running of the retreat.

Meals and use of the kitchen

All meals are either vegetarian or vegan. Please indicate in advance if you require a vegan diet. We are sorry but we are unable to provide any other special diets at the moment.

It may be possible for individuals to use a kitchen for private cooking or storing food. Let us know if you require this.

Accommodation and Facilities
There are different types of accommodation: single, twin, triple, quadruple and 5 bed rooms. Bed linens, pillows and towel are provided . Each room has en suite facilities.

There will be a small library of dharma books which you can borrow during the retreat.
