Facilities for Guests
During the ongoing period of COVID restrictions many of these guest facilities are running differently to usual (e.g. we are unable to run a ‘help yourself’ service in the shop, bookshop and bar). Please check our Keeping You Safe information, check on-site signage, or ask staff for details.
We have a well-stocked shop in Reception offering seasonal and general gifts, cards and local produce. There is also a limited range of snacks and sweets available for purchase in the Gallery. Payments should be placed in the honesty boxes provided, and change is available from Reception during normal office hours for those wishing to buy items.
There is a bookstall in the Gallery offering a good range of Bibles and Christian books, many of which are written by our retreat leaders. Payments should be placed in the honesty box provided, and change is available from Reception during normal office hours for those wishing to buy books.
A well-stocked bar, located in the Gallery, is available to guests over the age of 18; the bar is open from midday until midnight. Payment for drinks can be made at Reception, or via the honesty box, or by using the credit notes in the bar to keep track of your purchases to be settled at the end of your visit.
We have a well-stocked Library situated next to the Sitting Room in the main house, and another smaller collection in the Stables alongside the main Conference Room. Guests are welcome to take books out of the Library to read during their visit. Unfortunately we are not a lending library so we do ask that you return any items you borrow at the end of your stay.
We also keep a selection of church newspapers and magazines in the Gallery, as well as small numbers of general interest books scattered around various rooms of the house and Stables.
