Enjoy some time out to relax and reflect in the beautiful surroundings at Laskill. During our one day retreat you will be able to connect and get new perspectives on life’s changes and learn how to quieten the mind and body to find balance. Laskill is truly a special venue, built on the grounds of an 11C Cistercian settlement and later a Quaker site. Just being here will soothe your soul as well as giving you practical guidance and tips to take away.

The theme of the day centres around mindfulness and living a life truly awake with a quieter mind. The hospitality aims to give nurture, exploration care and fun before leaving refreshed with a new sense of purpose.

It’s all going Self Catering and Exclusive Use

2020 and 2021!?

Well, they have certainly been a couple of years for the books…

We were opening and closing faster than you can say hoke cokey!

However, we ARE open now, and loving being back in business and seeing so many people coming through Laskill once again.

Can you believe we have been operating, in one form or another, for nearly 50 years!! My mum started it all off initially; with just one bed and breakfast room in the farmhouse, which was also our family home, we even shared the bathroom, lord help THAT poor guest!

However, we have grown considerably in the years since. Moving from that one room – to overhauling and converting 7 old farm buildings into our lovely to self-catering cottages, and later adding Laskill House with its 5 B&B rooms to the list, a lovely event space and of course and a wedding license.

With all the ups and downs 2020 and 2021 have brought, we feel, more than ever, that being in one place with your nearest and dearest is one of, if not THE, biggest joys that life has to offer. So, it is with that in mind, we have decided that we will be redefining Laskill in 2022 and changing to an entirely self-catering model and waving goodbye to all B&B stays.

Of course, we will still be offering our little magic Laskill touches by way of add-on bespoke options such as:

Meals prepared by a private chef

Guided Walks

Food Foraging

Mindfulness and Meditation Retreats


Star Gazing events

…and more

We are just creating more special spaces for you to share together to make your own.

It’s not too much change, and I am certainly not going anywhere….we are just evolving and are really excited for this next step and hope you are too!

I can’t wait to see you soon!

warm regards
