The Secular Retreat has been designed around the landscape of its hill top setting. The rammed concrete walls give the building a mass and scale characteristic of timeless ecclesiastical architecture. The layout comprises two bedroom wings, radiating from a large central living space; flooded with light from full height glazing on all sides.

The Secular Retreat accommodates up to 10 people:

  • Five double bedrooms are all located on the ground floor
  • One bedroom can be made as a twin
  • All bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom, with WC and shower
