Our Retreats


Coast retreat 2

We have two stunning retreats in the South West of England; our Coastal Retreat in Tywardreath (near Par), Cornwall and Moorland Retreat in Brentor, Devon.

Both retreats are set within their own large grounds with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and lots of space to run around!
The large lounges have board games, puzzles and books and each retreat’s dining room doubles up as art and craft areas where we do clay modeling, face painting and other fun (and messy!) things.

We also provide the children with excellent home-cooked evening meals. We try to use fresh ingredients wherever possible, and there is always a good choice of different foods available. We will never force a child to eat anything they do not wish to eat, but we may try to tempt them into trying some of our home grown fruit and vegetables! It is important for everybody on camp to make sure they eat something at every meal time – at CHICKS we are very active during the day and it is important to eat to keep up energy levels!

Both retreats have play barns with pool tables, air hockey, table tennis, giant Jenga, chess and Connect 4. And we even have sunken trampolines, which are loved by children, staff and volunteers alike!

At our Moorland Retreat we even have a swimming pool and an amazing disco room.

The boys have two bedrooms with four beds in each; the girls share a larger bedroom with eight beds and each room is decorated with fun cartoons.

In addition to our fully trained staff, we also take a maximum of eight volunteers on each camp. There are separate male and female volunteer rooms, both with comfortable bunk beds and en-suite facilities.

If you would like a tour of either retreat, one of our team would be happy to help. Please contact Head Office on 01822 811020 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
