"An inspiring few days away offering a healing and supportive environment. Very restful."
"The house has a wonderful peacefulness that was perfect for our get-away retreat this weekend." C.J.
"Claridge House is a unique Quaker Healing and Retreat centre. I could feel the special atmosphere on entering the building, with two public rooms on both sides, one a small but well stocked library with lots of alternative literature on spirituality, healing, arts and more.
It is a home from home with caring staff and quiet times during the day; very much a presence of stillness at times." Charlotte. S
"Come here for a break away from noise, hustle, deadlines etc. Claridge House is ideal for a retreat or quiet break." Peter
