Retreat Centre Description

Poiema is a Christian Community offering a welcoming and hospitable environment within beautiful surroundings, holding space for visitors to encounter God, as they take time away from the demands of daily life to reflect and pray.  We are located in the village of Loweswater, in the heart of the Lake District World Heritage Site.

Accommodation on Offer

Our residential retreats are full-board accommodation and we have three guest bedrooms available, one single room and two with twin beds. All our rooms are available for single occupancy. Bed linen and towels are provided, and facilities for making tea and coffee are available in each room. There is shared use of a bathroom and shower room.

Guests have use of a comfortable lounge, dining room, chapel and garden.  Art resources and a small library of books are available. Lakes and mountains (or fells) are a short walk from the house for those who like to venture further afield, and guidance and a selection of resources are available for walks.

At the heart of the Community & Retreat House’s life is our daily rhythm of prayer, meeting three times a day in the Chapel. We warmly invite our guests to join with us for these times.
