Our Centre

We extend a warm welcome to you. The Marist Retreat Centre is a homely and caring place where you can relax, slow down and enter into quiet moments for reflection and peace. You can reconnect with God, with others and with yourself.

Tucked away amongst the Cotswolds, Nympsfield is a quiet little village, at around 800 feet above sea level, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and situated not far from the cities of Bath and Bristol, Cheltenham and Gloucester and close to the towns of Nailsworth, Stroud and Tetbury.

Nympsfield is a village of great antiquity and historic interest with charming Cotswold stone cottages. There are several ancient burial grounds in and around Nympsfield, all forming part of our heritage.

The Marist Sisters came to Nympsfield in 1929 offering a warm welcome to all.

Set in lovely grounds this is an ideal venue for all individuals or groups; religious, parish, youth & school, artists and families alike.
In the Centre, Sisters minister to all, who come for spiritual renewal or to simply relax and restore energies.
Sisters are available as speakers for a group or to accompany an individual. 

Come to rekindle the spark in your live through prayer, reflection, relaxation and spiritual guidance while exploring and enjoying culture and history in an informal setting.
