Travel - By Car

Sat-Nav warning - please ignore it once you have reached Bettisfield - it will take you wrong! Taraloka is signposted with a wooden sign at the start of our track in between the canal bridge and the old railway track bridge.

From Whitchurch: Follow signs for A495 Oswestry. Turn left after about 9 miles, signposted Bettisfield. After about half a mile you will pass a church on your right and then go over an old railway bridge. About 200 yards after the bridge, turn left onto track signed Taraloka. At the end of the track is a carpark.  The retreat centre is the red brick building.

From Shrewsbury: Follow signs for the A49 Whitchurch until you go through the village of Preston Brockhurst (about 8 miles). Turn left at the sign to Wem (B5063). After 3 miles turn right under the railway bridge at the T-junction. At the next T-junction turn left (a church is on your left). After 5 miles you will reach the village of Northwood. You'll pass the Horse & Jockey pub on your left, go over a hump-backed bridge, and on the next sharp left bend, take the right turn, signed Bettisfield.

In Bettisfield, go over the hump-backed bridge over the canal and past the village hall (on your left). After 100 yards turn right down the track with the Taraloka sign.  At the end of the track is a carpark.  The retreat centre is the red brick building.

When do retreats start and finish?
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.
