Everything you need to know when planning your group's retreat at Walsingham House.
From September 2009 Walsingham House can accommodate 40 young people and 4 leaders in our first floor accommodation. In addition there is a ground floor single en-suite room which is suitable for young people or leaders who are wheelchair users or have difficulty climbing stairs. This room can also serve as a further twin room if there are no wheelchair users in the group.
For the retreat sessions we have a large central room, which we call “the Ark” and a number of smaller discussion rooms. We also have a chapel, two dining areas, a kitchen, and approximately two acres of garden, which are being developed to include quieter areas in addition to space for football and other outdoor play.
Do feel free to browse the photo galleries for pictures of the House and grounds.
Walsingham House is best equipped for fully catered residential retreats and we strongly encourage these for school and parish groups. We are able to offer day retreats at Walsingham House subject to the demand for residential retreats, and we are also able to offer day retreats at a venue suitable for the school/parish.
Experience suggests that this is best if it is not actually on the premises the young people are used to, but if there is a suitable local venue we are happy to travel within the Diocese to be nearer to you.
We have produced a short presentation showcasing the house's facilities. You can download this in PDF format using the link below. It is a big file so may take some time!
