Swarthmoor Hall

Swarthmoor Hall is a 16th century country house set in beautiful gardens. Visitors speak about its tranquillity.

A writer commented: “The fictional dramas of Downton Abbey seem relatively tame to the actual events in Swarthmoor Hall’s history. The birthplace of the Quaker movement has all the elements of a great screenplay: love, conflict, conviction and passion.”

There are six historic rooms to view with a fine selection of 17th century furniture. The new barn café continues the Hall’s centuries old reputation for hospitality, serving delicious sweet and savoury dishes sourced from talented local artisans and food producers such as the Fat Flour Bakery.


Oneness in our separate experiences
Friday 22 March – Sunday 24 March
A short course which incorporates meditation, yoga and dance.

Oneness is the spiritual essence of our lives. Can we experience Oneness? Or does Oneness experience through us? Is there a difference? Whatever way we look at it, we are – quite simply and wonderfully – Life happening. This retreat offers opportunities to come closer to yourself, to direct experiential engagement with what it means to be here and now- alive and living as Life Itself.
