Solitary Chalet

Unfortunately our solitary hut will not be available in 2022

As we need to retain the ability to be flexible with our available rooms during 2022, we have reluctantly decided not to take any bookings for our solitary hut at this time. However, this decision may change in the second part of the year.

Information

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: £235 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.
