We are an International Kadampa Buddhist Retreat Centre. We are a registered charity (Registered Charity No. 517949) and based in a Victorian mansion built in the 1850s. Located in rural Derbyshire we are close to the Dales and Peak District. We have around 35 residents spread across the main building, apartments and houses. We are mixed community of ordained and lay people and families. We host around 5 - 15 workaways. Our extensive grounds have 38 acres of gardens and parkland, with a small river and woodland walk. The environment is very beautiful, tranquil and restful and is perfect for meditation and reflection.
The help required varies from cooking for volunteers/residents, gardening, painting and decorating, maintenance and household. We also have various projects that you could get involved in at particular times.
If you have particular skills we would love to know. Although the help is not always strenuous you will need to be reasonably fit and active to come on a volunteering visit.
In your free time, as a volunteer, you are welcome to join the drop-in meditation classes, courses and retreats.
There are many local walks, a nature reserve and cycle paths. You can also access the Dales and Peak District National Park for days out. The city of Derby is just 8 miles away. Birmingham, Nottingham and Leicester are all within one hour travel.
