About 

 

Since retiring from demanding careers, and family all grown, we have offered our home as a  place for peaceful retreat and restful reflection. Our pleasure is to share with others the wisdom of quiet contemplation.

 

At our small farmstead we offer The Fold, a modern self-contained studio lodge, for retreat. Nestled in its own garden courtyard, yet near enough to the farmhouse, our guests enjoy relaxing in homely comfort. Whether individual or couple sharing, you will find everything you need for physical and spiritual rest and refreshment whether on a short one day or longer stay. 

Set in 10-acres of beautiful hay meadows, new orchard and gardens, with expansive views of the Black Mountains, 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. All the usual comforts of home are provided along with plenty of outside space and seating, ensuring guests have a relaxed time away from it all.

For no extra charge, a simple breakfast is provided each day, and one day stays include home-cooked cake and refreshments.

The Fold is centrally heated, so guests are welcomed any time of the year, for either an exclusive quiet day, or longer overnight stays.

The only other regular visitors are: Red Kites, Skylarks, Linnets, Kestrels, and occasional Fallow Deer, and we keep a small family of Pygmy Goats and handful of happy hens, who provide our daily eggs.

Tina also leads both 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, we are able to offer small grants  to those who would otherwise be unable to make a short retreat. Email us for further information.

With warm wishes,

Tina and Nick Jefferies
