Our pleasure is to share with others the wisdom and richness of quiet contemplation and meditation.
We offer The Fold, a modern self-contained studio lodge for private restful retreat set in ten acres of hay and wildflower meadows, and newly planted orchard. With its own courtyard area, and within easy reach of the main farmhouse, guests enjoy relaxing in privacy with all the homely comforts. Every detail is carefully thought of for your physical and spiritual comfort, rest and refreshment, whether for one day or overnight longer stays.
Ideal for an individual or a couple sharing (double bed).
There are expansive views of the Black Mountains and Hay Bluff, so guests are often inspired to write, paint, or simply breathe deep and wander. Hence, a selection of creative and reflective books and materials are available for your use. A fully equipped kitchen, shower room, and plenty of outside seating, our guests are assured of a relaxing time away from it all.
Simple breakfast foods are included for overnight stays, whilst one-day stays include home-cooked cake and refreshments.
The Fold is centrally heated, so guests are welcomed at any time of the year, for either an exclusive retreat day, or a longer overnight stay.
The only other visitors sharing the space are: Red Kites, Skylarks, Linnets, Kestrels, and occasional Fallow Deer. We also keep a small family of pygmy goats and a handful of happy hens, providing daily eggs.
Tina leads an online and in-person Christian meditation group, and introductory courses in association with the World Community for Christian Mediation (WCCM), as well as leading reflective quiet days.
By arrangement, she can offer you or your group a led day, if you require.
We are pleased to say that through the Promoting Retreats Association (APR), we are able to offer small bursaries to those who would otherwise be unable to make a short retreat.
Please email for further information, or to make a booking.
With warm wishes,
Tina and Nick Jefferies
