Holycombe as a Retreat Centre
Holycombe is the most ideal venue to bring your guests for a retreat. It is a wonderful holding space, facilitators bringing their groups here for weekend workshops feel that very profound transformations happen. We have been running weekend retreats here for over 15 years.
Holycombe Holistic Retreat Centre works in 2 ways.
A) A facilitator who has (or intends to have) a group, books the House and or The Lodge
B) Someone searching for a retreat looks up on our events listings, chooses the retreat and contacts the facilitator direct and books
In conjunction with the The Lodge, Studio and glamping spaces there is room for 18 – 22 people, sleeping, depending on if there are couples.
We have had all sorts of retreats here including spiritual and personal development, yoga, meditation, dance, drumming, psychotherapy, drama, singing, writing, and other creative courses.
As well as the stunning and peaceful setting of Holycombe, we offer beautiful indoor space for workshops of all varieties. We just provide the space and ambience.
The workshops happen in The Angel Room, (25ft x 20ft) a lovely light room with wooden floors, (with the option for a big rug) French windows that open up onto a terraced garden and a fireplace. This room can comfortably hold 14 - 16 yoga students when lying down, but can hold more people, depending on the course that is running.
Adjoined to this room is the conservatory, a large communal eating room filled with plants and glorious views of the gardens can be seen. This has a large table and chairs and can seat 18 people, or 20 at a squeeze.
When booking a retreat, you also have use of a small, but very well equipped kitchen. It has a cooker, 2 small fridges, a dishwasher, a sink and all the kitchen equipment that you will need.
The owners live in the retreat centre, with separate facilities. There are 5 bedrooms in the main house. There are 3 double bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms upstairs. One of the twin bedrooms has an en-suite and there is the use of two other bathrooms for the other guests. We also have a beautiful healing room downstairs, with an en-suite bathroom which residents may also sleep in.
Three bedrooms are available in the Lodge. There are 2 twins and 1 double room, as well as 1 bathroom. There are 2 bedrooms in the Studio which you can also book. There is 1 double room and 1 single room as well as a kitchen and living area and a shower room.
