Price There is no charge for your stay at New Lands. However, the cost of employing our chef, buying high-quality food and sending bedding to laundry equates to £50 per person, per day. So, if you feel able to make a donation towards the cost of food and accommodation, we would very much appreciate this.


Payment You can make donations by debit/credit card or a cheque/postal order. Alternatively, you can make a bank transfer to sort code 16-00-38 account number 11371954. Please use 'RETREAT DONATION' as the reference.

If You Cancel If you wish to cancel, we would appreciate as much notice as possible so that we can give your space to someone else. 

If We Cancel If we find it necessary to cancel for any reason, we will give you as much notice as possible. We advise you to take out your own travel insurance in case of any last minute cancellations, particularly if you are coming from abroad, and booking flights and/or hotels.


Vegetarian Ethos All meals are vegetarian and prepared in our main kitchen. We use some organic produce and have a welfare based dairy and egg policy approved by Compassion in World Farming. We also have soya and oat and coconut milk available.

Food Allergies/Intolerances Please tell us of any food allergies or intolerances you may have. The Lodge is unable to accommodate alternative diet requests without prior agreement.

*Medically diagnosed food allergies Our kitchen is not allergen-free and we cannot exclude the possibility of cross-contamination during food preparation. Therefore if you have a medically diagnosed food allergy we may use bought-in specialist pre-prepared meals. In some circumstances you may wish to bring your own food, which you are welcome to store in our retreat kitchen, where there is a microwave and small fridge provided. There is no access to the main kitchen and please do not bring any meat or fish products.

*Food intolerances When requested, milk alternatives and gluten-free breads will be provided. If you have a food intolerance we will endeavour to provide meals omitting these ingredients. Due to the possibility of these ingredients being used elsewhere in the kitchen we cannot guarantee any dishes are completely ‘free-from’ specific ingredients.


Medical Conditions You are responsible for your own well-being. However, it would help us to be aware of any medical conditions you may have. Any information you do give us will be treated in confidence.


Next Of Kin We would appreciate a contact number for your next of kin/trusted friend in case there is an emergency while you are on retreat.


Rooms are single occupancy but if you bring a friend/relative and wish to share a room you will receive a 5% discount for both persons, if they are booked at the same time.

Access Bedrooms are on the first and second floors and accessed by two staircases.

Arrival And Departure Arrival time is between 2:00pm and 4:00pm. Departure time is by 10:00am. Please allow enough time for your journey to avoid any disruption for other retreatants. Thank you.


Your Data We only use your details for our purposes and will not share them with any third party.


Minimum Age Unless otherwise stated, our retreats are open to those aged eighteen or over.

Housekeepers We have a housekeeper to manage the practical matters of running a retreat and ensure your stay is a comfortable one. However, there will be times when you are expected to help yourself and contribute to light household tasks.

Our Right To Refuse We reserve the right to refuse admission, or ask someone to leave, if we believe their behaviour is having a negative impact on the retreat. No refund will be given under these circumstances.

Unreasonable Damages Deliberate damage to the property, its contents or the estate, must be paid for.

Personal Property Please look after your personal possessions as they remain your responsibility at all times. Should you leave anything behind, we will hold it for three months in our Lost Property Box.

Permission To Use Your Image Occasionally, the facilitator may take photographs in the retreat house or surrounding area. Please let him/her know if you do not wish to have your image used on our website, brochures, or books.

Taking Images During Your Stay You are welcome to take photographs in the retreat house and grounds but if they include fellow retreatants, please ask for their permission beforehand. Equally, if someone asks for your permission, please feel free to decline.
