Accommodation Options

We are offering a range of optons, to suit different budgets. Prices include all meals.

This is a single occupancy bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. It may have a single or a double bed. For married couples there is an option to add another occupant for a further £275.

Twin Room (Shared) Ensuite £339
A bed in a shared room with an ensuite bathroom. You can specify when booking if there is another delegate you would prefer to share with.

Dorm Room (Shared) £279
Basic accommodation in a shared single-sex dormitory, with access to a separate shower room that is shared with campers.

Camping/Campervan £260
A plot on a shared field, with hookups. There is limited campervan access to the field depending on the width of the your vehicle, but we have another smaller field that will have room for larger vans (no hook up). Shower rooms are shared with the Dorm Room users. (Please note, the price is per person, not per plot)

Non-Residential £260
If you would prefer to find a local B&B, or even commute from wherever you live, then you can book a ticket that includes all meals and sessions but no accommodation provision.

Optional Branded Travelmug £13.50
We try to minimise mess and waste, and this year we are encouraging people to bring their own travel mugs for refreshments. If you think that a Resound Worship / Worship Songwriting Retreat branded travel mug would be both useful and a nice memento, you can add it to to your ticket!

There is a bursary fund available for those for whom the cost would be prohibitive. If you are, or you know of, a songwriter who would benefit from this, please contact us directly. We really want to use the bursary and we'd love to hear from you!

Booking conditions: Full payment is required at the time of booking. For cancellations before and including 24 April 2024 a full refund will be given. For cancellations between and including 25 April and 4 June a refund of 50% will be given. No refunds can be given for cancellations after 4 June. We recommend you take out travel insurance to cover your booking in case you should need to make a late cancellation.
