Castlerigg Manor is only 10 minutes walk from Keswick town centre, where there are lovely shops, cafes and (of course) the lake.


Although we are not organising group travel, we are trying to organise car sharing. So if you don’t have transport, don’t worry.


Cost of the retreat, including all accommodation and meals, is £100. If you would like to come on the retreat but are not able to meet the costs, financial assistance may be possible.


The booking forms can be found here and must be returned, along with a £25pp deposit, by Friday 9th July.
