How long can I stay?

We offer short-term bookings for one or two weeks. We can offer slightly longer stays if availability allows, but you will need to contact us for details.

How much will it cost?

A generous endowment from our founder, Sir Henry Harben, and a number of other legacies pay half of all our running costs. Thanks to this, we can offer top quality care and recuperation in warm and comfortable surroundings at an affordable price.

The cost is likely to be £725 or £900 a week. You would need to pay extra for services such as physiotherapy, chiropody, beauty treatments and hairdressing.
