Our garden is a safe haven in the heart of the wild environment of Dalby Forest.
Known for its dark skies, the forest also has a visitor centre with a permanent exhibition and café, located half a mile away. It is a place for peace and solitude for walkers, who can marvel at the vast array of birds, insects, plants, trees and animals whilst the more energetic can cycle its marked trails.
Both a home and retreat space offering holidays and holydays. Refreshments, loo and the use of the garden room are available
Comprising over six acres, the garden offers great variety within its well-defined boundaries. It is possible to ‘lose’ oneself in its many distinct spaces or to sit and meditate on one of the many seats and benches scattered around.
Follow the meandering paths, crossing the bridges that span the lively stream which divides mature woodland from the grassed area and small lake and enjoy the variety of fauna and flora close at hand.
Closer to the house are well established herbaceous borders, patios and lawns.
Our garden continues to evolve and develop as we seek to create new and diverse experiences with a labyrinth and wild flower meadow due to be added shortly.
A booklet of mediations around the garden is available, as are prayer and liturgical resources.
Quiet days and spiritual direction are offered. Please see our website as you will need to book in advance
Individual and group days can be tailored to meet particular preference and need.
Please wear waterproof and sturdy footwear.
Volunteers helpers are always welcome!
We pray that all who visit the garden will be refreshed, restored, and reenergised in finding the blessings of God’s peace afforded by this unique environment.
