Quiet Waters is a small charitable trust totally dependent on income from our guests to cover all costs. We live by faith and have an unusual and unbusiness-like approach to our charges!  

For individual guests we have a suggested donation amount dependent on meals provided. However, we recognise that some guests may struggle to meet these costs yet still have a calling to be here. We are also aware that for other guests they are able to afford a much higher amount and are generous enough to cover the costs of those who cannot. For those guests who cannot afford the full donation amount we simply ask you give what you are able. And we are immensely grateful to those generous guests who contribute more than the suggested donation as this generous giving enables people with limited means to come and seek God here at Quiet Waters.  


Sorry, we are not able to welcome children. We love them but they can sometimes be a bit too noisy for our other guests!

Pets / Animals

Assistance dogs are very welcome, but we cannot accommodate any other animals.

Group Charges

For groups we charge the suggested donation rate for the booking as a fee. We also have a booking/cancellation policy whereby we request a £10 non-returnable deposit per person per night at the time of booking (up to maximum of £300 per group). We also require the full payment (non-returnable) a month before the booked dates.

(Groups may like to consider arranging their own cancellation insurance).
