In years gone by, the Dining Room was a working barn, and although it had been refurbished (into a games room) before we moved into Childswickham House, there was still a long concrete feeding trough down one wall, presumably for the animals. We did away with the trough early on, preferring the use of tables and chairs!
We again refurbished the Dining Room after we were flooded in 2007. We are able to seat up to 60 guests in one sitting.
All meals are normally served in the Dining Room, though it is possible for individuals and smaller groups to have some meals served in the Retreat House or Cottage by arrangement. Members of the Community also have their meals in the Dining Room.
