Welcome, kindness and generosity of the Claridge House teamâ€¦ They were wonderful and the meals were EXCEPTIONALLY good! We were incredibly well looked after.
We would not hesitate to return... everyone has fallen in love with this place - it is truly a healing environment
Returning to Claridge House after the pandemic pause, everything inside has changed.
And yet ... paradoxically, nothing has changed.
The House`s natural rhythm of life remains as steadfast as ever. Providing warmth, loving understanding and care, central one`s health and wellbeing! KB Oct 2022
Just a little note of thanks for a wonderful time this past week on a personal retreat. Your kindness helped me to ease back into `real life` after the past two years of isolation. I hope to see you all again soon. JC Mar 2022
