Our facilities are available to people of all spiritual paths and we hold the belief that God is Love, in whatever form people choose to experience the Divine.
Healing Waters Sanctuary offers a high level of accommodation both for spiritual retreats of individuals and groups. Why not come and enjoy our healing retreat for a peaceful break whilst benefitting from our range of alternative and complimentary therapies. You could book a pamper break or a longer retreat, or come for a spiritual or meditation course.

We have twice been nominated awards for being the best retreat centre.

The Facilities at Healing Waters
Healing Waters provides a deeply relaxing and comfortable environment. We provide all essential facilities for you to be fully self sufficient and to feel at home in our house.
We have a fully equipped kitchen with a range of stainless steel saucepans and kitchen implements, including a soup ‘whizzer’ and food blender as well as a juicer. There is also a selection of herbs, spices and oil available. Please be mindful of other guests whilst using the kitchen. We also ask that you don’t bring meat products or alcohol into our house.
We have a dinning table that can seat about eight people in the space at the back of the house and another table in the kitchen. The french windows looking out over the deck and the moors let in a lovely light throughout the day. There are also eating areas outside on the deck
Behind the house we have a beautiful wooden deck with picnic tables and recliner chairs. Wonderful for sunbathing and relaxing. This vantage point gives you a lovely view across the somerset levels and of Glastonbury Tor. If you come in spring or summer you will get a chance to see our flower garden that surrounds this area as well as up through the front garden.
There is a room available for meditation, yoga or tai chi. Many of our guests have remarked upon the special energy of this room. It may be because of it’s position on the Ley Line. Enjoy the space, it is very beautiful.
The meditation room is also used for therapies, so if the door is closed and the curtain across, please do not enter, or sit in the hall or outside the window. It will soon be free to use again after the session
We have three bathrooms. One on the upper floor and the other on the lower. Bathrooms are NOT en-suite but shared. There are showers in all of them. The downstairs one has a luxury, Jacuzzi, colour therapy bath. There is also a bathroom with shower outside the house, especially available for guests in the yurt but open for all.
