Welcome to our beautiful 17th century Retreat Centre
We are on the edge of the quiet village of Childswickham, two miles from Broadway in the Vale of Evesham. For those who enjoy a good walk in beautiful scenery, we are surrounded by excellent walking country on the edge of the Cotswold Hills with an abundance of pretty ‘olde worlde’ villages. For more history and culture, and a bit of ‘retail therapy’, Worcester, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Stratford are within easy driving distance.
The Retreat House (Childswickham House), together with the Tithe Barn, Pottery Studio and other buildings encircle a peaceful courtyard, leading into two acres of gardens and 60 acres of our own farmland.
We welcome church groups and organisations from different Christian traditions. We also offer individuals the space for time out in a quiet corner, and families the opportunity to relax together. Day or overnight visits can be arranged for midweek or weekends.
Self-Catering Accommodation and Groups
Our group bookings will be for up to 15 people in the Retreat House and 9 people in the Cottage, overnight. We will continue to host day groups in the Tithe Barn.
We regret we are unable to offer the option of providing cooked lunches or evening meals. However, we will leave provisions for a simple breakfast in the kitchen for those staying overnight.

Your safety (2020)
We have introduced some important measures for your safety this year: please see Coronavirus (COVID-19) and your safety.
Come away and be refreshed
Although the vision for the retreat centre is now for self-catering and smaller groups, we hope that this will create new possibilities for you to meet with God in our beautiful home in a new way throughout the week – whether as church groups, or as Christian families or friends, coming apart for time with God.
We know that the blessing of space and time with God in beautiful surroundings will be much needed by many at this difficult time. We pray we may be able to be a channel of blessing to you in this way.
Come and be refreshed: we look forward to seeing you!
