Wide open skies, star-filled nights, mountain vistas and acres of meadow in which to wander...  


If you are looking for peaceful rest, focused refreshment, and warm hospitality, then Sanctum Retreats is the place for you.

Situated on our small non-working farm we offer space for comfortable private retreat and support for you to reset the balance.


Located in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside overlooking the Black Mountains hills and valleys at the edge of Wales and England, guests enjoy peace, simplicity, wildlife, and attention to the details of comfort. 

Since 2011, Tina and Nick Jefferies have welcomed dozens of people, whether of faith or non, to come aside for rest, restore energy and focus, and leave with a greater sense of whole body wellbeing.

Self-catering retreat accommodation is provided at The Fold, a comfortable wooden studio lodge in its own courtyard garden, a brief walk from the farmhouse. 

The Fold is resourced with books and reflective materials about contemplative practice, which Tina herself  awakened to during a particularly difficult time in her life some twenty-five years ago. She has since published articles and books about the value of contemplative retreat and guided thousands of people in the developmental value of time spent away from it all...

Attentiveness, stillness, simplicity, and silence are vital to restful retreat. As a practitioner and teacher of meditation, guests are invited to join Tina for a daily time of silent meditation (optional), whether you have meditated before or not.

As a widely experienced adult teacher and development mentor, qualified in cognitive behavioural therapy, Tina also offers one-to-one personal guidance sessions either in-person during your retreat, or online anytime (charges apply - please contact Tina for more information)
