New Members

Are you interested in becoming a member of our Community?

We are an independent Quaker Community living, working and worshipping together. We offer a diversity of shared and individual accommodation in  an historic stone building set in 10 acres of woodland.

Living and working with our Quaker testimonies we offer a programme of retreats, working weeks and individual stays to our guests.

Members of the community share their skills and offer service to provide hospitality, run our retreat programme and manage the maintenance of our buildings, gardens and woodland. All members pay rent and volunteer in the work of the community, some also have part time employment in the locality. Our twice daily worship is central to our commitment to living together in the spirit, as are our weekly house meetings. We aim to find a balance between service, work and personal time. We are supported by local Quaker Elders and Overseers. Members and regular attenders welcome.

If you would like to find out more please contact the community or come and visit us for a self-catering stay or retreat. In 2022 we are holding two ‘New Light’ weekends.

18th – 20th March and 29th April – 1st May – starting with arrivals from 4pm on Friday and finishing after lunch on Sunday. Please contact if you would like to attend.
