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 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.

The house is a short (15 minute) walk from the centre of Truro, a 5 minute taxi ride from the railway station and easy access to the A30 if driving.
