rookhow IS OPEN!     

In line with governmental guidelines, we're opening the bunkbarn for long weekend bookings from 4th July for groups made up of people from 1 or 2 households. Sole use so you'll have the place to yourselves, including 12 acres of ancient, oak woodland.

Total cost: £600 for 2 nights (Fri-Sun)

£750 for 3 nights (Fri-Mon)

The Quaker Meeting House is closed at the moment for renovation work.

We're making sure Rookhow has at least 72 hours between bookings and our cleaner will thoroughly clean before you arrive. We've carried out a risk assessment with additional measures which we'll send you in advance of your stay. Phone Sue if you'd like to discuss this: 07557 919879.

reduced rates

Rookhow is a registered charity. By staying here you will help to support our charitable work.

Rookhow offers a reduced rate for some groups. Our current priorities are young people's groups, support groups for people with mental health problems and refugees.

There is also a reduction for Quaker groups and families, especially mid-week and at short notice. 

Contact us if you fall into one of these categories and if a reduced price would enable you to access Rookhow.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, with smaller groups from 2 households, we will consider a reduced rate if the full rate would be prohibitive.
