Our Spaces

Around the garden you will find hidden ‘rooms’ created from the natural environment where you can simply sit peacefully, reflect, pray or sleep. We hope to mirror the all-embracing hospitality of the Divine.


Buddha Garden

The Buddha Garden is a secluded, peaceful place with a rustic bench carved from the old ash tree. A beautiful Indian Bean tree marks the entrance. 

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.” 
― Dalai Lama 

The Trinity Garden

The Trinity Garden was designed by Revd Ylva Blid-Mackenzie, Landscape Architect Madrona Nursery.

Watch out for our video on the making and meaning of this garden! The Trinity has meaning in many faiths.

The Apple Glade

The Apple Glade was only created in Summer 2020 during Lockdown. It’s a fun shady place under an ancient apple tree with its own special atmosphere.

Porters Lodge

The Porter’s Lodge looks out over the labyrinth and is a charming little summer house that can be heated in winter.

The Tabernacle

The Tabernacle is a very atmospheric Prayer Tent – it’s full of icons and eastern drapes and whilst Christian in tone, people of non-christian persuasion find comfort here. 

‘O God, your voice never strains nor shouts. You do not force us to hear you. You ask only that we open our hearts to you, and in tranquillity your love enters our souls.’ – after Aelred of Rievaulx

The Angel Garden 

The Angel Garden is small and colourful with a little sculpture that reminds us that we are surrounded by angels at every moment.
