A place of Rest, Renewal and Spiritual Refreshment

QuietWatersLogo200Quiet Waters is a Norfolk/Suffolk Christian retreat house providing a friendly guest house experience for tired and weary Christians seeking a time of spiritual refreshment, those seeking God's direction or those simply wanting to spend time in His presence.

We provide an opportunity for Christians to seek God in a quiet, peaceful and safe environment that allows freedom and space to experience God's love.

Located on the Norfolk/Suffolk border on the edge of Bungay, Quiet Waters is a large Georgian house offering comfortable accommodation for up to 16 guests in 9 bedrooms with two spacious living rooms, dining room (serving delicious home-cooked meals) and our very own Chapel.

The house has a daily rhythm of prayer, reflection and worship to which guests are warmly welcome. We also have two ground floor bedrooms (with newly-fitted shared wet room) providing easy access. The mature gardens are a guest favourite; set in two acres with walled garden, woodland walk and backing onto the River Waveney there is ample space to find peace and simply be.

QuietWatersRiver21x750Our guests cherish the fellowship of chatting over a delicious meal and the QW kitchen enjoys a five star food hygiene rating. From full-board to day visitor our guests are well fed with generous continental breakfasts, delicious home-cooked lunches and picnic suppers.

The house is run by a team who live on site and are available to support guests through prayer, worship or simply by listening. As well as offering peace and quiet for the individual we are also ideal for day groups of up to 20 people; perfect for those in church leadership seeking His direction.

Our freshly renovated Garden Apartment is now available for self-catering breaks. Located at the rear of the main building and overlooking the walled garden the accommodation is bright and spacious with a large twin bedroom with en-suite shower room, spacious living room and well equipped kitchen. The Garden Apartment is an exciting new direction for Quiet Waters and is aimed at those seeking a longer retreat.

We are still very aware of our Covid responsibilities and the systems we put in place last summer will still be running to ensure guest safety.

Come, find peace and simply be.

"Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest." Mark 6 v31
