additional information


We will be staying in a luxury cottage farm retreat in Longnor. Longnor is a beautiful little Peak District village in the Staffordshire countryside, situated on a high ridge between Buxton and Hartington. 15 Parking spaces are available but we encourage you to car-share.


You are responsible for arranging your own transport to and from the location. We encourage people to car share wherever possible.

Please see https://peakvenues.co.uk/venues/4/lapwing-barns/#locationfor directions.


The cost of the retreat is £390 each for shared occupancy of up to 4 in an en-suite room. This includes food, accommodation, classes, a guided walk, a workshop, and course materials.

Alternatively, 3 monthly payments of £140 can be made that must be set up immediately via standing order.

No discounts will be given, we are a non-profit collective, intending to provide affordable regular quality retreats, so all of our retreats are priced at a loss.


The majority of rooms are double rooms.

We shall eat together, pray, and have our classes in the main communal areas.

We have a dedicated team of catering staff to cook for us with vegan options.

There will be plenty of indoor and outdoor space to have some quiet time and plenty of space to seclude from any crowds.

There are 2 x 7kw smart electric vehicle charging points one is near the Annexe steps and the other is near the gable end of the main house.


The retreat is open to adults only. We are not able to cater for any children this time.


In the unlikely event that we have to cancel the retreat for any reason, you will receive a full refund or a transfer to another retreat. We are not able to cover additional travel expenses nor are we responsible for any consequential expenses incurred as a result of any cancellation. If you cancel for any reason, we cannot guarantee a refund. We encourage you to try and find someone else to take your space. If we have a waiting list, we will most certainly try and offer your space to others.


Heritage (non-convert) Muslim spouses can come as we believe that partners will equally benefit from the experience and the learning together.
