Visiting

Retreats and getaways

Scargill House offers a safe place for you to enjoy a private, spiritual or creative retreat – sharing our home and entering into as much or as little of community life as you wish.

We invite you to come on retreat to Scargill, whether as guest on one of our particular programmes, a private visitor or as part of a private group.

“Real blessing from God – a good time in a ‘safe’ environment – especially for people alone.”

Spiritual direction

Our community includes a number of trained spiritual directors who would be willing to pray with you and offer some direction or pastoral care, if that’s what you’re looking for. Please mention at time of booking if this is something you would be interested in.

Space to relax and pray

The Chapel and Walled Garden are just two of the many places on site where you can relax and pray.

Seasonal and silent retreats

We normally schedule retreats in our programme especially around Lent and Advent. Some of these include extensive times of silence; others have a different flavour.

Creative Arts Retreat Movement

We also work in partnership with CARM (Creative Arts Retreat Movement). Please check our programme for more details.
