Retreat Centre Description

The Cuddesdon Retreat and Conference Centre offers warm hospitality and a peaceful space in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside to take time apart from the routine and pressures of everyday life.


Located within a renowned theological college, there is also the opportunity in term-time to share in the life of the students, joining them for meals and worship, and if you wish, to use our educational resources for study.
