Solitary Retreat

The most beautiful learning and the greatest
is to know yourself

Clement of Alexandria (c.150–215)

A fully-serviced, beautifully designed retreat facility is available for solitary, self-guided retreat. It is situated in a peaceful spot overlooking open moorland. A wood stove provides heating and hot water for the washing area which is modelled on a Turkish hamam. There is also a small kitchen. All food is provided including a daily hot meal which is discreetly delivered to the retreat kitchen.

Use of the retreat is by arrangement and application, for anyone with experience in retreat practice.


£50 per night, which includes everything you will need – all food, bed linen and towels, wood for the stove and so on. For a one week retreat the cost is £300. For retreats longer than seven days extra days will be charged at £40. A concessionary rate of £35 per night is available to anyone who has taken part in a long winter course at Chisholme.
Concessions may also be applied for if you are a full-time student or on income support.
A deposit will be required when booking.
