Join the Claridge House for Rest and Renewal community
Claridge House is a retreat and learning centre with 2 acres of tranquil gardens in Lingfield, Surrey; accessible by train and road.
We invite people of any or no faith to rest for a while in peace and stillness before returning to their everyday lives refreshed and renewed. The ethos of the house is to provide vegetarian food, locally sourced when possible, and to hold its peaceful atmosphere by avoiding stimulants including television.
Since our inception in 1954 we have offered nourishment for body, mind and soul in various ways. We now run courses, mostly at weekends, which focus on health, creativity, nonspecific spirituality, and also individual and group retreats. We also offer stays to groups or house hire to those who share our core values to provide rest and renewal.
Individuals needing tranquillity in which to write, reflect, rest or just be, are welcome during the week. Healing is offered, but we are not able to support anyone with complex medical or emotional needs. Spiritual direction can be provided with advance notice.
Currently closed for refurbishment, we reopen in the summer of 2016, with most of rooms being en-suite. Our ground floor rooms have disability including two en-suite wet rooms for wheelchair users. We intend to further improve accessibility as funds permit.
We are Quaker founded and led, and a Quaker Meeting for Worship takes place here every Sunday morning which anyone staying in the house or in the area is welcome to attend.
