Our new ensuite bedrooms are now available to book (without catering) as they have external access and are therefore ‘self-contained.’ For more information about our new rooms please visit our Accommodation page.
We are also able to host ‘essential’ and permitted meetings and have full precautions and measures in place. You will find more information about the rooms available on our Conference Facilities page.
We are looking forward to being able to open more fully, all being well, on May 17th, when we will be able to welcome people back into the House and offer some refreshment. This means we can begin to take bookings for personal retreats and quiet days and we are beginning to plan some organised retreats and quiet days.

Welcome to Epiphany House
Epiphany House on the outskirts of Truro, is a haven of peace in the heart of Cornwall.
Our beautiful historic house sits within spacious, well-kept gardens which look out from Kenwyn over the edge of the cathedral city to the fields near Idless Woods. The house combines comfort with elegance and has a wonderful, peaceful atmosphere.
Formerly the Bishop’s Palace and the home of the Sisters of the Community of the Epiphany, the house is now run by a charitable Trust as a conference and retreat centre. We look forward to providing our excellent hospitality for conferences, meetings, weddings and other celebrations as soon as government Covid guidelines allow them to resume.
Our house programme of retreats and quiet days will be open to all. We will also welcome those seeking space for rest and reflection outside of our retreat programme.We are opening slowly and have limited opening but please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your requirements. If you are interested in our retreat programme or visiting, please sign up to our newsletter below to find out when we are able to re-open and in what capacity.

Spacious, flexible meeting room hire for conferences, business meetings, AGMs, training courses and away-days. A choice of refreshments may be served throughout the day if so required. We are ideally located for meetings on the outskirts of Truro with plenty of free parking on site.
Step aside from a busy life and spend time with God. We offer a programme of Christian retreats and quiet days and also welcome those seeking space for individual reflection on a personal retreat or wanting spiritual direction.
