Welcome to our urban oasis

A quiet oasis of peace and stillness in the midst of urban life

Our house is a small retreat centre in South-East London between Lewisham and Blackheath, with Greenwich close by. It is a surprisingly quiet oasis of peace and stillness in the midst of urban life. We are pleased to welcome small groups of up to 25 day guests and accommodation for individuals or small groups looking for a place of retreat, silence and rest. While we are unable to provide meals for groups or individuals there are self-catering kitchen facilities available for guest use.

We also have an in-house programme consisting of a variety of different day/evening and residential events. Please note that many events need advance booking. Calendar.

Please take the time to explore the many different possibilities.

We look forward to welcoming you!
