About 

After retiring from demanding careers, and the family all grown up, we have offered our home as a  place of peaceful retreat and restful reflection. We love to share with others the gift and wisdom of quiet contemplation and meditation.

 

People come from all backgrounds and for all kinds of reasons, sometimes pressured work situations themselves, to seek an occasional or regular retreat as a way to balance work life and wellbeing. Some want to be inspired to write or paint (we keep a selection of art materials for your use), or simply relax in a simplified space; others find retreat to be of significant spiritual nurture. Whatever the needs, The Fold retreat here at the farm provides ideal provision. 

Individuals or small groups (up to x7) are welcomed at all times of the year, for away day or retreat, exclusive to them. To share in the peace and inspiration of the surrounding countryside and garden with sole use of the comfortably resourced and heated lodge sitting in its own courtyard area and plenty of outside seating.

By arrangement, The Fold can also be booked for short overnight retreats, accommodating one individual or one couple sharing (double bed). 

We love sharing this beautiful part of the world with others. The views of Skirrid (Holy Mountain), the well-known Sugar Loaf in the Black Mountains, and the wonderful Golden Valley; walks from the farm gate in the rolling hills of Herefordshire, all add to a special kind of stillness and peace to the retreats. 

Regular wildlife visitors also add to the pleasure of any stay: Linnets, Skylarks, Red Kites, Kestrels, and occasional Fallow Deer, to name a few. We also keep a small family of Pygmy Goats and a handful of hens, who provide our daily eggs.

During spring and summer months we hold occasional led Gentle Retreat Days  in the garden and meadows. All are welcome for a day to breathe deep and learn the joy of quiet contemplation and meditation, against the backdrop of stunning views and peaceful countryside. 

Every stay, day or otherwise, includes fresh home-cooked bakes and refreshments

Tina leads both online and in-person meditation groups, introductory courses, and led quiet days throughout the year - some in association with the World Community for Christian Mediation (WCCM). By arrangement, she can offer you/your group a relaxing meditation or quiet reflection whilst you're here. 

 

We look forward to welcoming you.

Tina and Nick Jefferies
