…Walk humbly with your God…

Micah 6:8

Dear Friends - after 7 wonderful years of running Pilgrim Paths Ltd I have decided to award myself some Sabbatical Leave… a time of prayer, reflection and discernment for the future…

Our emails and sales section are closed until further notice. Feel free to download all the lovely free resources.                 Every blessing… Barbara

open to the public - they are, however, very special places to stay for a few days…all are welcome

St Beuno's Ignatian Spirituality Centre

St Beuno’s Ignatian Spirituality Centre extends a welcome to all who seek a                           

time of reflection, prayer and peace.
The beautiful hillside setting, with its views of the mountains of Snowdonia and the North Wales coast, has long provided people with the space to reflect on the presence of God in their lives and in the world.

The Centre is well known for its warm welcome and quiet atmosphere. Retreats and Programmes are inspired by Ignatian spirituality - a Christian approach to prayer, sorting out priorities and seeking the will of God.

St Asaph, Denbighshire, LL17 0AS  Wales


Shepherds Dene provides the space to think, the chance to grow and walk more closely with God. It is an Edwardian country estate given to the Diocese of Newcastle in 1945  within easy of reach of Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and County Durham.  It is a spiritual place for peace and quiet and sometimes for fun and celebration as well.

We welcome guests of all denominations and faiths - and those without a faith - who share our purpose of seeking and discovering before they take action.

The Chartres style labyrinth is open to visitors at any reasonable time

St. Augustine's Priory - Conwy

The House of Prayer is a place of spiritual renewal, where those who come can find God in an atmosphere of love, prayer, healing and peace. We offer space for a break from the busy-ness of life, a time to rest and ‘let go’ of the burdens of everyday life.

We welcome groups and individuals from England, Scotland, and Ireland as well as other parts of Wales. We hope that anyone who comes to the ‘House of Prayer’ will feel at home and enjoy being with us in this delightful place. We offer space where you can be more present to God and to yourself, where you can pray, rest or walk - whatever helps you to unwind and to ‘BE’ with God and more present to yourself.

Cliff Road, Old Colwyn, CONWY, LL29 9RW, N. Wales.


The Portiuncula - Derbyshire

Welcome to our hermitages. We have tried to preserve Saint Francis' spirit of contemplative prayer, littleness, loving service, Gospel simplicity and warm fraternity as the hallmarks of our hermitage experience.

We have five hermitages under one roof, set in rural Derbyshire.

The hermitage experience offers the invitation and challenge to  journey into the depths of one's own heart and into the Heart of God.  

Our Peace Garden  captures something very dear to the heart of Saint Francis: his love of creation and his mission of peace. Towards the centre of the Peace Garden we have a labyrinth; for many people the Christian labyrinth walk is a healing experience leading to deep inner peace.

St Mary’s Parish Church - Co. Durham

This Church of England parish is in the Auckland Archdeaconry of the Diocese of Durham and serves both the market town of Barnard Castle and the picturesque village of Whorlton along with their surrounding areas.

The labyrinth was laid as part of the re-ordering in 2011 when the organ was moved from the south transept to the west end of the church.  

We enjoy welcoming visitors.

Our website has details of our services and events.

The nave at Wakefield Cathedral has been restored and transformed.

The Society of Mary and Martha at Sheldon is a retreat house run by a lay Christian Community on the edge of Dartmoor.

The Bield is a retreat and small conference centre and our vision of wholeness and healing flows from our commitment to Christ. Bield is a resonant old Scottish word, which means ‘shelter’ or ‘refuge’.  It also has the connotation of ‘nurture’ and ‘encouragement’, all qualities we hope guests will experience during their time with us. 

A labyrinth has been created in the orchard offering opportunity for walking, meditation and prayer – following the ancient way of walking sacred paths. Our Labyrinth is cut into the grass with 7 paths on an equal-armed cross shape.  The inclusion of the trees resonate with the organic nature of The Bield. There is a willow arch entrance and a willow arbor with a wooden boulder sculpture at the centre.

Seeds of Hope Children’s Garden

Opened in 2008, the Seeds of Hope Children's Garden is a unique garden designed to help children and young people explore feelings of loss of all kinds with the support of their families, teachers, and carers.
