We have had to organise things a bit differently from normal, but you will still receive a warm welcome and we are doing everything we can to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable stay.

Land of Joy is a residential community with most of the team living on-site. It is very important, therefore, that we take precautions to avoid an outbreak and the possibility of having to close the centre.

The team and board have thought long and hard about how to safely re-open the centre for group retreats. In order to keep the whole community safe, yourselves included, we are asking all guests joining retreats in the main house to be fully vaccinated and take lateral flow tests before and during the retreat. All team members also follow these protocols. These guidelines will be kept under review, but for now we appreciate your co-operation in keeping us all safe. If you have any queries, please email director@landofjoy.co.uk

We look forward to welcoming you all again!

Stay well and safe,
Jenny and the Land of Joy team
