Christian Retreat / Small Conference


Christian Retreat or Small Conferences
It has always been on our mind that Lochhouse Farm should be a Christian Retreat Centre along with the being a holiday retreat to for people who need ‘time out and space apart‘ from their busy working lives.
For this reason we are developing Lochhouse Farm to be able to accommodate Christian Retreats and small conferences along with our B&B and self catering accommodation
We are able to accommodate groups of up to 15 people in the cottages or the main house. The Stables is a great place where groups can meet for a whole range of different purposes. We have already provided a residential centre for church away-days and weekends as well as a venue for groups to do team building events, family gatherings, walking holidays, reunions etc.
There is Galleried space with library and the potential for arts & craft work and themed weekends. The downstairs area has kitchenette & toilet with enough open space for accommodating a small conference. Internet Access is available free of charge. Video projector and home movie equipment is available for hire.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss your thoughts of ideas.
