Retreat Centre Description

Rydal Hall is unique, with en-suite bedrooms, a campsite, cottages, bunkhouse and gardens set on 30 acres at the very heart of the English Lake District, a World Heritage Site – somewhere to experience the beauty of God’s creation.

We look forward to welcoming you to our outstanding venue to take a well-earned moment of rest and relaxation in which you can retreat from your daily routine to a place loved by the poet William Wordsworth for its awe-inspiring beauty. Recharge in a peaceful, natural and historic environment, and reconnect with yourself, with old and new friends, God and creation.
