– Is it time to treat yourself?
– Want country air, home cooked food, comfort and meaningful conversations?

Our Summer Retreat may be the gift you need to give yourself!

Join another 30 amazing gay men for the experience of the year!

Set in acres of woodland, gardens and rolling countryside, the Dunford House Estate in West Sussex will be our very own home for this long weekend escape.

Retreat 3There is room for 34 gay men to join this wonderfully relaxing and connecting experience. The venue has disability access, however do let us know if you have any special access needs.

New for 2014

  • More time! We now arrive Friday lunchtime
  • More space! Time in-between activities to relax and explore in your own time
  • More pampering! A special ‘pamper session’ with complimentary face pack
  • More fun! We will repeat the stuff you loved last year and drop the stuff you didn’t.
  • More singing! We will be making most of the grand piano.
  • More of all the things enjoyed last year! Night time forest walk, morning meditations, walking and jogging through country villages, Saturday evening fun, silent auction…..

The weekend is open to all – you can come alone, safe in the knowledge that the group will be a warm and friendly bunch of guys or you can come with friends and partners who want to experience a bit of The Quest for themselves.

The theme for the 2014 Countryside Escape will be ‘Reconnection’. We will explore in typical ‘Quest style’, where we find ourselves in our life – the trials and triumphs, the breakthroughs and breakdowns within the peace and tranquility of this wonderful countryside estate.

The weekend will offer relaxing country walks, home cooked food, intimate conversations, invigorating group discussions, social activities, peace and quiet, fun and laughter. Check out our online album featuring some moments from the 2013 Retreat.
