Holy Rood House

Time and space for you

Welcome to Holy Rood House …

a centre, a home and a community…

Thank you all for making my visit such a warm            friendly and deeply caring experience

This web-site will guide you across the threshold so you can see who we are and what we do.

Throughout the site we have included quotes from our guest books in the bedrooms.

Hospitality lies at the heart of all we are and do.

We are here for you, and for many at a time of need.

As well as professional, therapeutic support, or programmed events, our door is open for rest and relaxation, care for carers, spiritual retreat and accompaniment, training, study and sabbaticals or for a holiday. You are welcome to phone us and discuss your requirements, and we can talk you through some of the changes we’ve had to make in the light of COVID-19.

Holy Rood House is a charity with a gentle Christian ethos, providing safer space for those of us who are finding life unsafe. Since 1993 we have been pleased to welcome all kinds of people, of all ages, for all kinds of reasons from across Britain. We have found that once people know the right place for them – they are prepared to travel.

Space – for the possibility of seeing things              from a different perspective

Do come and visit us when it is possible to do so according to our present arrangements.

sends greetings for this Eastertide 2022

Mists of time

rolling over shadowed lands
