Welcome to The Retreat House

The Retreat House is situated at the edge of a small, moated village in the heart of the Essex countryside and is a place steeped in prayer, with space for quiet reflection.

National Lockdown 5th November to 2nd December 2020

It is with regret that we have to temporally close the Retreat House once again to visitors and guests, due to the latest national lockdown. We have had to cancel all bookings until December.

However we are continuing to offer various online retreats – Please see Events for details. They are easy to book and very easy to follow, offering the traditional Pleshey hospitality and peace in a virtual environment.

We will re-open – government guidelines permitting

We have worked tirelessly to create a COVID safe environment, following all the latest Government Guidelines and building routines for staff and guest alike based around hands-face-space.

When we are allowed to reopen, we can offer quiet space to individuals and groups, subject to current restrictions issued by Government, from full-board residentials to day retreats. We can offer self-catered breaks in the Parsonage Cottage and the Gatehouse. We are also offering a number of online retreats for those who cannot travel or do not feel safe enough to do so.

All these events are bookable now – do not wait for lockdown to lift, get in touch now to give yourself something to look forward to.

Please see Events for details.

Please send an email or call 01245 237251 to enquire about availability.

The Retreat House is a place of prayer which holds a special significance for many. It will continue to be a place of prayer during this season even though we are unable to host as many visitors as we would like. We are posting prayers and reflections from our Chaplains on YouTube – the Pleshey Playlist – on a regular basis.
