This is a 48-hour residential with full board & lodge. NBW Retreats are non-profit as NBW does not charge for the retreat but St Columba’s House does. The cost for the weekend is £172 per person. Some concessions available, please get in touch at

The accommodation is en-suite, basic, clean and comfortable. We are provided with three meals daily, vegetarian or on request vegan / gluten free. Hot drinks are available throughout the retreat (self-serve). There are silent meditation sessions (the longest being 60 minutes), walking and standing meditation, mettā bhavana practice, free time for contemplation in peaceful surroundings along with the gardens and two Dharma talks (by Geoff Hunt)
followed with discussion.

For these retreats the Centre does not accept bookings for a part of a retreat.
