If you are looking for space to reflect or to meet with others, then why not try Shepherds Dene?

Shepherds Dene is an excellent venue for a conference, away day, meeting or seminar. Alternatively, if you are simply in need of a day or a few days just to get away from it all, then come and feel the tension evaporate in the calmness of the house and grounds.

The house is an Edwardian country house, built in the Arts and Crafts style, and set in 26 acres of grounds. The estate was given to the Church of England in 1945 to be used as a retreat house and is within easy of reach of Newcastle, Durham and Carlisle.  It is a spiritual place for peace and quiet and sometimes for fun and celebration as well. 

Shepherds Dene serves the Dioceses of Durham and Newcastle as diocesan retreat house.  It provides a space to think, a chance to grow and to walk more closely with God.  We welcome guests of all denominations and faiths - and those without a faith.
