The Quiet View invites you to experience peace of heart in the Garden of Kent

A Centre for Contemplative Spirituality, the Quiet View is rooted in Christianity but welcomes people of all faiths or none. In an area of outstanding natural beauty, the garden is approximately 2 acres in east Kent, surrounded by rolling countryside.
It has been designed to provide secluded quiet ‘rooms’ for stillness and reflection and people in need of spiritual refreshment are invited to book a retreat individually or as a group. There is a variety of indoor spaces too, including a large yurt that boasts a log-burning stove that provides warmth and cosiness on cold or wet days.
Book a space to follow your own programme or join in our Programme of Events.
