Our beneficiaries are anyone seeking a retreat (spiritual rather than specifically religious) i.e. the opportunity to withdraw from their everyday life. Since 1953 Claridge House has provided a space for people under stress or strain, or in any condition, to rest and recuperate in order that they can return to their everyday life with renewed strength and focus. Claridge House is a Victorian house set within its' own grounds which offers a space for individuals and groups to experience a retreat. Retreats include personal day retreats, led day retreats, four night mid-week retreats, and courses with a healing/health and well-being focus. Positive feedback is regularly received from those who have visited/stayed at Claridge House regarding the personal benefits gained from the peace and quiet of the house.


The small team of staff work towards maintaining the upkeep of the house and grounds while providing a place of retreat (including accommodation for up to 16 guests). Breakfast, mid-morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are provided. All food is cooked on site and is vegetarian. No alcohol is provided and the house does not have a television; this enables guests to find other ways to relax i.e. through reading, listening to music, talking, meditating, etc. Claridge House is equidistant between the villages of Lingfield & Dormansland and is ideally located for a number of pleasant walks.
