Individual Retreats – Gomde Retreat Huts
Individual Solitary Retreat
The Dharma encourages us to take time in solitude to better get to know our mind without outer distraction. The huts at Gomde are perfect for this but as they are secluded, off the grid and situated in woodland they are for more seasoned practitioners.

If you are interested in retreat, please contact: paulette@gomde.uk
The Woodland Retreat Hut
If you cannot stabilise shamatha at Gomde’s retreat hut you will not be able to stabilise it anywhere. – Gehse Graham, 2016

The retreat hut is located within a secluded woodland setting chosen by Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche. The design is simple and well insulated with basic amenities. It has a large window overlooking the woodland with screened porch area for outside meditation, a small wood burning stove, a kitchenette (with small gas hob) and a compostable toilet.

The hut is ‘off the grid’ and has no electricity; solar lights are supplied.
Food Supplies can be ordered and delivered through Gomde once a week, and weekly washing is possible. There is no shower at the hut but it is possible to use the camping showers.

£175 for 1 week
£280 for 2 weeks
£480 for 1 month

Pear Shack Retreat Hut
‘Gomde is lush for retreat. It’s as if the practice simply comes to you.’ – SB, 2020

The pear shack is located a little distance from the main buildings and sits within the pear orchard with views over the woodland and fields from 2 large windows. It is a beautiful construction, larger than the woodland retreat hut, with two stories having a bedroom in the upper gallery room. It has a woodburning stove and is double glazed, insulated and off the grid, with small kitchenette area, practice space and comfortable reading area. It has a composting toilet and water is fetched from a designated area in the centre. It has no separate bathroom but it is possible to take showers in the camping area at the hall. Food Supplies can be ordered and delivered through Gomde once a week, and weekly laundry washing is available.
