Last rays of summer
I hope, like us, that you have had a busy yet fun summer.
We enjoyed several big BBQs with friends and neighbours. Including one for Martyn's 50th and another in honour of Treargel founders Clare and Artie. In the Yurt we had a couple of parties for local young people and a workshop for the brilliant Women's Centre Cornwall.
Unfortunately, not everyone had such a good time. My dad, who mends everything, said pointedly, this bench is just too rotten to save! He did a lot of jobs for me around the grounds this summer, so fair enough.
Autumn at Treargel
We are putting on a couple of Quiet Days for those who want to take some time to retreat, reflect and reconnect. Come just for one day, or stay over for a few.
‘No less magnificent’
Using Therese of Lisieux’s quote ‘We are no more important, but no less magnificent than others’ we will be delving into who we are and our place in this world.
Friday 21st October 2022
(Like this butterfly, who knows what effect we have on the universe).
Rediscovering the joy of breathing.
Allowing you to inhale and exhale
in a quiet, beautiful, and uncluttered place.
Thursday 24th November 2022
Details for both Quiet Days
10-4pm, refreshments and simple hot lunch included. Booking necessary.
Welcome. Those on a reflective journey; of all faiths (or none), genders and sexualities.
Programme. 3 sessions, starting with short prompts together. Guests then reflect on their own, around the grounds, Barn, Shepherd’s Hut, Hermitage, Yurt or Coastal Path.
Neo, our dog, is very fluffy and an enthusiastic welcomer.
Cost. We don’t charge for our events, but offer on a pay-as-you-feel basis. We’re not a charity or supported financially by any organisations. Donations are welcome so we can put on more events. Bring a packed lunch to pay less.
Due to the cost and time of running these events, they will be postponed unless a minimum of 5 people have booked 2 weeks in advance. So, book early, we have room for 12.
Residential. To stay during an event, we have 2 cottages, a Shepherd’s Hut (with no heating) and the Hermitage in the woods.

Our prolific brambles can’t wait to meet you.
We would love to see you down in (mostly) sunny Cornwall.
So book now for 2022 prices, they will sadly be going up soon.
I leave you with this blessing, a mashed up ending of a poem by Nicola Slee.
May you be wholly you
Everything you've ever been
And all you shall yet be.
