What a lovely little haven away from the cares and distractions of the world! The food was exceptional. It is so nice to go away and have proper home cooked, locally sourced food....The crumble was lovely- God bless you all! -


Penhurst is a small, friendly Christian Retreat Centre where a warm welcome is offered to all. We also specialise in support for mission partners, cross cultural workers and full-time Christian workers from the UK and overseas.

Situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is just 10 miles from the coast in the Sussex High Weald. The beauty, peace and comfort of this place create an ideal setting in which to draw closer to God and experience his love.

Comfortable full-board accommodation is available for up to 16 guests sharing 8 bedrooms including 2 ground floor en-suite rooms, one of which is fully adapted.
