General Guide to staying at Treargel
Welcome to Treargel, we hope you have a wonderfully relaxing stay.
Our hope is that you will have the time and space to:
Breathe deeply, rest quietly and think clearly
We live in the Barn across the courtyard, feel free to contact us or pop in if you have any questions. Naomi - 07931 356 656, Martyn 07903 020 483
You are very welcome to explore the grounds of Treargel (see the map). Including the courtyard by the Barn, the garden and the woods. Accessed through the big double gates by the Piggery marked ‘Treargel Garden’. Through here you will find; the Grove, the Yurt, the Shepherd’s Hut, Waterlooe, the Labyrinth, the woods, fields and the Hermitage. The other buildings and spaces at Hendersick Farm are owned by our very friendly neighbours. Please respect their privacy, parking and space, but do stop for a chat. If you are interested in some meditative gardening during your stay, we always welcome help. Have a chat with Naomi and she will show you around and supply you with tools and gloves. Perhaps you will be like Brother Laurence with his pots and pans, getting closer to God.
Our cottages were converted from real farm buildings that used material suitable for animals not humans, so may be a little damp and drafty. Please use the heaters to remain warm and dry during your stay, this is not charged separately. You can keep the electric heaters on low or on the timers to conserve energy (as prices of electricity are high). Please bring warm jumpers, thick socks and slippers. Extra blankets and hot water bottles are provided. Let us know if you need anything more.
Basics such as tea, coffee and sugar will be available. As well as a complimentary homemade loaf of bread and glass pint of semi-skimmed milk in your Welcome pack. (Unless you let us know you don't want this.)
Towels and bed linen are also provided.

Stillness and Silence (Monday Meditation)
Anyone is welcome to join us (Naomi and Carolyn from The Stables) for half an hour of collective silence, this is our only collective rhythm of the week. We generally have a short reading/poem/prayer and then 30 minutes silence. Ask for details of where and when.
I also put the prompts up on Facebook or send by email, so that anyone can join in.
