"Just to be here is so healing."
Claridge House is a Quaker centre for healing, rest and renewal, associated with the Friends Fellowship of Healing. It is situated in the small Surrey village of Dormansland, and stands in about two acres of beautiful gardens with many fine trees. The house is over 150 years old and was bought by the Fellowship in 1953, but is now run as a separate charity.
"An Oasis of Inner Peace"
Claridge House is a sanctuary available to anyone who is seeking healing, rest and renewal for just a few days. The emphasis is on spirituality rather than religion, so whatever your faith - or even if you have none - you are welcome to share in the peaceful life of the house in an atmosphere of understanding and love.
Stay with us for a relaxing break, join one of our courses associated with healing, including activities such as music, painting, crafts, yoga, and circle dancing, or join a led day retreat or arrange your own, and enjoy our delicious vegetarian or vegan food.
Claridge House is available for Group Stays over a weekend or midweek. As a Quaker centre, we especially welcome Local or Area Meetings. The House is sometimes available for hire by a group for exclusive use - telephone us on 01342 832150 for further details or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Claridge House is now well into its second half-century. We need your support to ensure we can continue our valuable work.
