Places of Retreat

Jun 21, 2013 | Assorted

We are often aware of people who are in search of places to be quiet, either to regroup after some difficulty or to further some creative purpose. We’ll suggest a few places for those wishing for a slightly more structured environment in the next edition; here we simply want to feature a couple of complete get away from everyone places.

Just outside Bromyard, a few miles from Malvern, Victoria Hawkin and her family have made their farmhouse available for this purpose. She can be contacted at 01885 482 409,
Warren Farms

We have previously mentioned The Shack, near Bewdley, Worcestershire (contact Linda Entwistle at where the Holy Spirit quite definitely ‘descends’ on people who stay there.

Here also are  three lovely places to go on retreat, which are served by wonderful communities.

We ourselves have been blessed so many times by either visiting or ministering at the House of the Open Door Community near Broadway in the Cotswolds. It was a great pleasure to host their leaders who came to us for a retreat a few weeks ago in our ‘Sanctuary Shed’.

Finally we would mention Stanton House near Oxford and then there is widely renowned Ffald y Brenin, where God has met with so many.
