Planning a retreat or need a break?


SELF-CATERING accommodation for those who feel they might benefit from a short stay (usually no more than a week) in a Christian environment. The chapel is situated in the heart of the Lake District on the B5285, 1 mile from Hawkshead, and near to Tarn Hows.
Kath Dodd, joint minister of Hawkshead Hill Baptist Church, says: "We offer budget accommodation for 2 people for the purposes of rest and retreat. The Upper Room is self-catering accommodation which includes upstairs room with double bed, desk, and easy chairs. Downstairs are located the shower, toilet and kitchen. We suggest a minimum donation of £20 pppn. We have operated for 12 years, and many people have valued this opportunity to stay in this beautiful and popular location at an affordable price."
