Gomde UK, Lindholme Hall offers a wonderful environment for serious practitioners to practice. Whether for short or long-term full retreat, or as a base to enable one to focus on practice in the longer term, it is a place to put Dharma at the heart of all one does.
Therefore in these lovely gleaming woods,
With joy that’s marred by few concerns,
Where mental wandering will cease,
I will remain in blissful solitude.

— Shantideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva
Individual retreat in the cabins
The retreat cabins are located within a secluded woodland setting chosen by Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche.
We now have two off-the-grid retreat cabins, located on beautiful parts of the estate within our orchard and woodland. The cabins are newly constructed, fully insulated and self-contained and are ideal for practitioners who wish for complete seclusion.

Individual retreat in the hall
We have different rooms for retreat, all extremely comfortable and with far-reaching views, with facilities and prices to suit different budgets. Retreat is supported by the community and meals are served in the retreatant’s room, the Hall’s private dining room or in the community dining room in the coach house, whichever suits the practitioner.

The Lindholme Estate has 180 acres of land and is surrounded by the Hatfield Moor: 3,500 acres of wilderness. The Moor is perfect for walking and quiet reflection; it is rare to see another human being but wildlife is plentiful!
Monastic Support
We have been fortunate in recent years to have a considerable monastic presence with Lama Öser as our resident Lama to help guide beginners and inspire us all. We have also been graced by visits from Lama Tenzin and a two-month residency of the accomplished Khen Rinpoche. We hope with Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche’s blessing the conditions continue for these most fortunate circumstances to prevail. If requested, our monastic sangha is always willing to offer guidance to resident practitioners.

The Hall has a reasonable library of English-language Dharma books and some rare Tibetan texts brought here by Lama Öser.
