Located in Northumberland National Park, Land of Joy is a peaceful, residential retreat centre, operating in harmony with its natural surroundings. We aim to continue to provide a peaceful and supportive environment where anyone can come to attend our buddhist or non-buddhist events.

The board and team reviewed the current situation at the end of August and decided Land of Joy will remain closed to group retreats until the end of this year. We would love to have you all back again, but with the situation so unpredictable, and our facilities so shared, remaining closed is the most sensible and safest option.

As Northumberland has been placed in the highest tier from 3rd December, we can no longer offer personal retreats at the moment. We are hopeful that this will change at the beginning of the year, so please keep checking. We look forward to welcoming you all again before too long! In the meantime, we are very grateful for your supportive messages and kind wishes and we hold you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Stay well and safe, Jenny and Land of Joy team
