Travel - By Train

The nearest train station is Whitchurch (Shrops or Salop). There are two other Whitchurch stations in the UK so make sure you get the right one! Our Whitchurch is about a 25 minute local train journey south from Crewe or north from Shrewsbury. It's about 30 minutes from here by road to the two nearest train stations. So please take these times into account if you're booking return train tickets.
You need to book a taxi in advance to get from Whitchurch station to Taraloka; arrange for it to meet your train. The drive from Whitchurch takes 20 minutes and costs about £15. 
The companies listed here are familiar with Taraloka and they may be bringing other retreatants, which will reduce your costs.

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 2.30pm, including our long weekend retreats. Longer retreats finish at around 10.15am. Please check your booking confirmation letter for the definite starting and finishing times of your retreat.
