I hope you are well, and enjoying the emerging signs of spring and lengthening days, as we are here at Chalice Well. The gardens are bursting to life, with a new delight to discover every day, and as ever held by the unique atmosphere of peace and beauty at this special place.
With the announcement of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown, we have been able to start planning how and when we can re-open Little St. Michael’s Retreat House and at last welcome you back to come and stay! This has been a challenging year, and you may well be looking forward to the rejuvenation and nourishment that a retreat can bring.
We are aware, as you will be, that these dates may change depending on the national statistics, however until further notice, this is what we can offer in line with the guidelines.
From 12th April to 16th May:
We have a unique opportunity to offer to you. Little St Michael’s is usually a shared house, for a number individual guests or a group. However we have a 5 week window between these dates where only self-contained accommodation can open, for one person, one household or a legally formed bubble. So we can offer the whole of Little St. Michael’s to book for anyone in these categories. The housekeepers would not come in during a stay of this nature in this period, so that the house remains self-contained.
Booking is at the group rate, due to the whole house being on offer, on a self-catering basis, at £440.00 per night, with a minimum stay of 2 nights. Contact Julie on email@example.com to book.
From 17th May:
We will be able to re-open to individual bookings from this date (if the dates are not delayed by the national statistics) with offering up to 3 en-suite bedrooms and a continental breakfast to order. We will not be able to open the kitchen yet at this point, but there are many local options for finding lunch and dinner.
Booking is for a minimum stay of 2 nights, at £70.00 per night, per person. Contact reception on firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
It would also be possible to book the whole of Little St. Michael’s at the group rate of £440.00 for a maximum of 6 people or up to 2 households between 17th May and 20th June, for a minimum of 3 nights. Contact Julie on email@example.com to book.
From 21st June:
If all goes to plan nationally, we should be able to open fully once again from this date.
We are currently full for groups in 2021, however I do have a waiting list for any spaces that become available – email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to this.
We can open back up to individuals from this date – all 6 bedrooms, with some shared bathrooms, shared use of the kitchen and on a self-catering basis. Minimum stay of 2 nights, at £50 per person, per night. Contact reception on email@example.com to book.
From 17 May, up to 6 people can meet indoors, then restrictions should lift from 21st June. However, since the ‘stay at home’ rule lifted from 29th March, we can offer our Meeting Room for hire to individuals – you may want an inspiring space for your personal practice, or if you are recording online material, this could be a lovely venue for you, with the huge windows providing a backdrop of some of the beautiful trees of the gardens.
£60 per half day or £120 per full day, with a 2 day minimum booking at weekends. Contact Julie on firstname.lastname@example.org to book, more details here.
See our website for more details on the facilities, and do get in touch with any questions.
We hope to welcome you soon!
With blessings from the Well,
