Maitreya House is a beautiful retreat centre located in a remote part of Herefordshire.

The centre comprises a converted cottage and several wooden cabins on a four acre site, overlooking wonderful views to the Golden Valley and Hay Bluff, an unspoilt rural setting - see photos.

The property is available to rent and is ideal for small, intimate groups but can accommodate 15 people or more if camping, or for private retreats. It has a wonderful energy and was created to build on the teachings of the late Namgyal Rinpoche.

This spring, 2024, Jonathan, a meditation teacher and our current Chair is taking up residence in the new Shepherds hut on the western boundary. There hasn’t been a resident teacher for some time and so there maybe someone on site and there is availability for supported private retreats.  If you are coming as a group with your own leader, thats fine too.  Or you may like to join one of the courses or retreats we run, with central themes of Buddha Dharma, mindfulness and spiritual unfolding.

Membership is open to all to support the work of the charity and maintain the centre. More info here.
