Our first autumn retreat took place in October 2023 and offered a rich mix of personal development, crafting and physical exercise – all in the beautiful surroundings of the Priory, Aylesham.
We’re currently putting together a new programme for the 2024 event and will post details here soon. Watch this space!
A SPECIAL RETREAT VENUE: THE FRIARS, AYLESFORD PRIORY, KENT
Situated within 40 acres of historic buildings, beautiful grounds, woodlands, formal gardens and pasture, The Friars is framed by the natural environment. Enjoy a meditative walk in the Peace garden or explore Rosary Way or the Avenue. Watch the ducks at the pond and pick up “The Friars Heritage Trail” from the reception to help you navigate your way round the site.
You’ll be staying in the Priory guest house in either single or twin bedrooms (for single occupancy at no extra cost) which are furnished with simplicity and comfort in mind. The guest house features a communal lounge area where you can help yourself to teas and coffees around the clock.
Good food is an important part of any retreat
The retreat fee includes all meals, from supper on Friday night through to lunch on Sunday – as well as refreshments between formal mealtimes. Our meals are self-service, served in the 13th century Pilgrim’s Hall located in the Great Courtyard.
