Spiritual Retreat: Shepherds Dene, Northumberland

Mary Cooper Mary Cooper Richard Knott Richard Knott Alison Summerskill Alison Summerskill

This retreat offers you time and space to reflect and explore through the media of story, wondering, and silence. You will have opportunity to respond through a wide variety of creative resources and discover the grounds with its labyrinth, and the rolling countryside beyond.

The location of the retreat is Shepherds Dene, an outstanding example of the ‘arts and crafts’ style of architecture.  The house has been refurbished in the last few years, and provides all the home comforts you would expect of country house living and appetising home cooking.

Shepherds Dene is located 1 mile from Riding Mill station, 30 minutes from Newcastle Central Station. Taxis or lifts can be arranged from the station if you ask in advance.

Extra nights accommodation can be booked directly with Shepherds Dene.

The total cost of the retreat is £290. If booked before the end of February, this can be paid in two instalments of £155 and a final payment of £135 on 28 March. If you prefer this method, please contact Sheila Rogers
