What do you mean by a community?

We hope to build a 'family' of regular visitors that feel they are part of the Sangha Retreat experience. Friends that visit regularly or friends that stay for extended periods.

Do I have to participate in Retreat activities?

Not at all. Some will stay to engage with others and to make new friends. Others will stay to have some 'quiet time' and be away from the normal daily routine.

Can I come and go as I please?   

Yes, this is your time. There's lots to do and see in the area, lakes, forests, hiking we can lend you bikes too.
If you wish to relax at home we have an acre and a half of gardens and paddock to sit quietly in.

I would like to come but wont it be expensive to get there?

No. It's about an hour and 15mins flying from 5 regional airports in the UK and prices start at about £40 return during the winter.

Your prices are very reasonable, why?

We would like to offer those on a limited budget the chance to visit. Our facilities rustic and comfortable.

What do you mean rustic?

We love  the traditional style of the buildings that we occupy and we are keeping them that way. Comfortable but basic.

650 million people don’t have access to safe water. Without this basic service, they have no choice but to drink dirty water that could kill them.


Can you imagine life without safe water to drink? For millions of people it's a daily reality.

Everyone, everywhere needs a safe and sustainable supply of water: for drinking, washing, cleaning, cooking and growing food. It’s a basic human right.

Governments around the world have not done enough to ensure safe water reaches the poorest and most marginalised people in society.

In many countries around the world, taps, wells and pipes simply don’t exist. Even where they do, they are often not affordable for the poorest people or are not designed to last.

Women and girls suffer the most. Wasting their time and energy to collect dirty water, often from far away, they miss out on an education, lack the opportunity to make a living, and have little chance to change things. They are also more likely to get sick with water-related diseases, which kill over 1,400 children a day.

We are working to improve our Website -

Peace of mind - "the absence of mental stress or anxiety"

All living beings have the same basic wish to be happy and avoid suffering, but very few people understand the real causes of happiness and suffering.

We generally believe that external conditions e.g. material posessions and money are the real causes of happiness, and as a result we devote time and energy to acquiring these.

Superficially it seems that these things can make us happy, but if we look more deeply we shall see that they also bring us suffering and problems.
