Sanctuary is a place for healing, where you can reach out for support to resolve current life issues and develop skills to help you not only live life but to love life. Sanctuary is home to Heart of England  Healing Retreat Centre, lovingly created to provide a protective and nurturing space where you can safely let go of deeply held, painful events from the past, releasing you to move on in your life.

Situated on the banks of the River Severn in the heart of the beautiful Georgian Worcestershire Town of Bewdley, Sanctuary is a lovingly restored 16th Century house with a wealth of exposed beams and a delightful walled garden. Although an integral part of the main house, Sanctuary has its own private entrance and fully equipped apartment comprising: double bedroom, lounge with WiFi, TV/DVD/Video, Radio/Cassette, Bathroom with bath & shower and fully equipped kitchen.

The beautiful walled garden at the rear offers complete privacy and a place for quiet reflection with waterfalls and fountains arranged as a peace garden and spiritual garden. Retreats are very popular and can be available at short notice including weekdays and weekends.


What is a Retreat?

There are different kinds of Retreat, but all have a common thread – the need for something to change! At Sanctuary, we understand that and our mission is to offer the right kind of Retreat to bring about the change you are seeking.
