Meeting Room

This self-contained facility can be hired for talks, workshops, and classes of a quiet nature, as it is adjacent to the main Retreat House. It will seat up to 20 individuals in a circle or 30 in theatre style. As with all other areas of The Chalice Well, the Meeting Room is a smoke and mobile phone free environment and is also a ‘no shoe’ zone. Unfortunately this facility is not suitable for wheelchair access.


  • There is a small ‘kitchen’ area with sink for the preparation of hot drinks. A kettle and/or urn and crockery are provided.
  • The meeting room has its own toilet, situated up a small flight of stairs.
  • The floor is oak boarded with an under-floor heating system.
    • Rugs are available upon request. Please indicate on your booking form whether rugs will be required.

For the duration of the hire, group leaders/hirers are responsible for:

  • Passing on health and safety information to participants/delegates
  • Providing the teas/coffee, milk etc
  • The security of both Chalice Well Trust property and personal items within the Meeting Room. The hirer will be given the keys to the room and the digilock code

We reserve the right to change benefits without prior notice for any reason.

Online Companionship Applications

For online applications where you have supplied your email address, you will either receive an acknowledgement email confirming online payment or an email explaining that your online payment was not successful.

Where you receive an acknowledgement that your application has been received and processed, this does not yet mean that the contract between us is formed. A legally binding contract is formed on the date we send your Companionship pack.

We normally aim to send out your Companionship pack between one and two weeks of receipt of your online payment.UK mail is sent by second class postage, overseas mail by the lowest cost option by Royal Mail. Once processed and posted, we will assume that you have received your Companionship pack unless we hear from you.

Direct Debit payments, for UK bank or building society account holders only, are at a lower rate than payment by cash, credit or debit card. See our website for current charges for all methods of payment.

For Direct Debits set up online, your first Direct Debit payment for the current year’s Companionship is normally taken from your account 1-2 weeks from receipt of your application form. Subsequent years’ payments are taken on the date of expiry of your Companion card. When you make a Direct Debit agreement with us, we send you a letter or email each year, one month prior to the payment being taken, confirming the date and amount of your payment.

Refunds and Cancellations Policy

When you click to submit your application online by credit card payment, or you post, telephone or email us with details of your application, you are making an offer to subscribe to The Chalice Well Trust which, if accepted by us, will result in a legally binding contract.

At the point of renewal of your membership, your renewal payment is confirmation of the continued acceptance of this contract. You may not transfer your rights and obligations under these terms and conditions to another person.

Under the terms of the Direct Debit Guarantee, you may cancel your Direct Debit agreement with us at any time. If an error is made in the payment of your Direct Debit by Chalice Well Trust or your bank or building society, you are entitled to a full and immediate refund of the amount paid from your bank or building society. If you receive a refund you are not entitled to, you must pay it back when Chalice Well Trust asks you to.

Your Companionship, if paid by Direct Debit will automatically renew upon the expiry of your current Companionship card. You will receive a renewal notice normally one month in advance of the expiry of your current Companionship card. It will also contain information about your entitlement to cancel and about any changes to your Direct Debit payment. Any payment agreements that have been made by Direct Debit will automatically continue, unless you notify your bank or building society, and us, that you wish to cancel it.

Once renewal of your membership has occurred, it will still be possible to cancel your membership, but we are not obliged to offer a refund if notice has not been given and your Companionship pack has not been returned.

The refund policy complies with the EU Distance Selling Directive (2000) and is part of UK law under the Consumer Protection Regulations (2000) that relate to distance selling. The law came into force in the year 2000 and applies to all UK based transactions where the consumer does not meet the vendor. These regulations do not govern contracts between businesses. In accordance with this law, you have a 7-day cooling off period during which you have the right to cancel your purchase and receive a refund. If a welcome pack has been issued this must be returned to us. The cost of postage and packing applicable to the return of the welcome pack will be at your own expense and we will not be accountable for these costs.

If you do decide to cancel, please email or write to us and we will refund your payment within 30 days of receipt of your notice of cancellation and your returned Companion card(s) and welcome pack. If you paid by credit or debit card through our website, your refund will be made directly to your credit or debit card within 30 days of your cancellation and your returned Companion card and welcome pack. If you paid by other means then your refund will be made by cheque. This will be posted to you within 30 days of your cancellation.

No refunds will be given for Companionships cancelled part-way through the current period of Companionship.

We reserve the right not to fulfil, or to cancel, your application if we are unable to obtain payment authorisation from the issuer of your card or from your bank in the case of Direct Debit payments.

We will arrange to have delivered, issues of our Companions’ journal ‘The Chalice’ to the address you notified to us when you have made your Companionship application. You agree that Chalice Well Trust will not be responsible for failure to deliver the magazines if you have supplied us with an incorrect address or have failed to notify us of an address change. We reserve the right not to refund your membership if they are returned to us. Our liability to you in the event of magazines being lost in dispatch shall, at our discretion, be limited to replacement of the missing issues.

Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of The Chalice journal, however, neither we nor the authors can accept liability for errors and omissions within the magazines.

Your Companion card entitles you to free entry during normal opening hours. Chalice Well is normally open 365 days per year, but if for reasons of health and safety or abnormally severe weather conditions and the gardens were closed at the time of your visit, we reserve the right not to refund your membership.

If you are unable for any reason to use your membership at any stage during this time, refunds or extensions cannot be offered in any circumstances.
