Please expand any of the sections below to find out more information on any of our frequently asked questions.

How do we find you?

You can find our location and travel details at the base of our Contacts page.

Do you offer B&B?

Poiema doesn't offer B&B for non-retreatants, our focus is our programme of retreats and quiet days. See our calendar page for information and booking details.

Do you have facilities for those with additional needs?

Unfortunately, the age and nature of the building means that we are not easily accessed by people using a wheelchair.

Can we bring our pet/pets on retreat?

Sadly, we are unable to accommodate pets on the premises.


We believe that Poiema Community & Retreat House should be a place where all people feel welcomed, safe and valued.
