Let our friendly, hospitable staff and excellent catering team take care of your guests so that you have time and space to enjoy being on retreat. Step aside from your daily life into the peace and tranquillity of Epiphany House, as you encourage your guests to take some time out to meet with God and be refreshed and renewed in his presence.

Epiphany House is an historic, comfortable and peaceful house set in lovely gardens. Our 12 guest bedrooms can accommodate up to 18 guests, and our meeting rooms allow space for up to 90 day guests.

Meeting spaces

We have meeting rooms to suit different sizes of group and activities. The Godrevy room is large with a wooden floor and a PA system and is ideal for larger conferences or for craft activities that need plenty of space.

The Trevose room, pictured to above, is light and comfortable and makes a great place to meet for prayer and  conversation. Alternatively, set up more formally with chairs as shown, or with chairs and tables, it can be used for teaching, meetings, workshops or as a break-out space for  larger events.

The Pendeen room, smaller again and connected to Godrevy, can be used on it’s own for small groups as a meeting place, break-out room or to serve food for larger events happening in Godrevy.

Overnight accommodation

We currently have 12 guest bedrooms which can host up to 18 guests in single, double or twin-bedded rooms. Three of these rooms are on the ground floor. We are moving to ensuite rooms in the future but at present each bedroom has a hand basin and has access to shared bathroom facilities. All bed linen, towels and bathrobes are provided.

As a retreat house we have some bedrooms without wi-fi access to encourage our guests to take a break from their daily life. There is free wi-fi in some bedrooms and throughout the downstairs meeting rooms, so there’s always a place that you can go when you need to connect online.

Prayer and worship

The chapel and prayer room, both on the first floor, can be made available throughout your retreat for worship and prayer. The Chapel seats up to 60 people for services but can be made into a more intimate space for smaller groups with a circle of chairs. The prayer room (named after the Cornish saint, St Piran) is ideal for individual prayer and for small groups.

Epiphany House is an ecumenical Christian foundation and your guests are welcome to join in with our regular services throughout the week. We hold a short service of morning prayer at 10am, Monday to Friday, and a eucharist service at 12 noon on Tuesdays.

Excellent food

Our catering team have a well-deserved reputation for delicious, home-cooked meals. Choose either a hot breakfast or a self-service continental style breakfast, add a packed lunch or a two-course hot meal, and finish off the day with a delicious two or three course dinner.

We cater for vegetarians and will do our best to cater for medically essential dietary requirements such as nut, dairy, wheat and gluten allergies. Hot drinks are always available throughout the day; add pastries or delicious home-made cakes if you want to really treat your guests!

We do not offer self-catering for group retreat bookings and you won’t need to help serve or wash up dishes after your meal – we enjoy looking after you and giving you space and time to make the most of your stay with us.
