Solitary Chalet

Our solitary hut will be available in 2023

Happily, we are able to offer our solitary hut to visitors again in 2023.


Periods of solitude, meditation and reflection have always been a part of the Buddhist tradition. For this purpose Rivendell has a separate chalet in its own secluded part of the grounds with its own access. The chalet provides an ideal safe environment for a first solitary retreat.

The chalet sleeps one and comes equipped with heating, a gas cooker, silent fridge, flush toilet and electric shower. There is also a shrine, with meditation mats and cushions. Twice weekly we deliver food and supplies for you to prepare. Please note: The solitary retreat chalet does not have internet access or a mobile phone signal.

Lettings run from Friday to Friday.

Cost: £279 (£249 concs.) per week, including basic food. 

(All deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable in any circumstances. If you cancel and we can't replace you, you will be required to pay half the total cost of the retreat.)

Please Note: A solitary retreat can be a strong experience, so it’s important that you have attended other Triratna Buddhist Community retreats before booking the solitary chalet. Please talk to a member of the Rivendell team before booking, if you have not already undertaken a solitary retreat.
