Solitary Retreats

For people who have participated in a Barn retreat, or a silent retreat elsewhere, and who are experienced meditators, we offer the opportunity for a solitary, silent, and self-sufficient retreat.

You will stay in a little hermitage, called the Kuti, in a quiet, secluded and relatively remote part of the Barn's woodland.  Kuti is the Thai word for meditation hut.

A place in which to meditate

In the words of our retreatants

  • As someone new to the practice of meditation and never having been on retreat before I was a little apprehensive about coming to the Barn. But my week here has been wonderful. The caring staff and the beautiful surroundings come together to create a safe and loving space for people to move forward with their practice and explore any issues that may be present in their lives. This has been a really special week for me. Thank you.
  • Anne (31), student liaison officer
