Our retreats begin with supper at 6.30pm.   Please arrive any time after 4.30, to give yourself time to settle into your room, unpack and have a cup of tea. We are always grateful if people are able to come for 4pm to help chop vegetables for supper.  Please let the office know if you are able to do this.  If you are going to be late, please let us know.  Most weekend retreats finish at around 3pm. Longer retreats finish at around 11am. Please check your booking confirmation letter for the definite starting and finishing times of your retreat.
