Pilgrims Retreat

Pilgrims Retreat


Discover the captivating essence of the Garden of England winding along lanes past lavender fields, orchards, vineyards and oast houses.

Be enriched by England’s oldest county, alive with its exciting past: visiting Canterbury with Chaucer’s pilgrims and Rochester with Dickens, following the maritime adventures that have shaped Kent from Roman invasion to World War II. Quintessential England. But also bang up to date with leading-edge galleries and theatre, Michelin-starred dining and entertaining nightlife.


Are you feeling like it’s time for a break? Do you feel like it’s time to get away from the busy hustle of your current lifestyle and embark on a new start somewhere quiet and peaceful?

Well here at Pilgrims Retreat we can offer both Residential and Leisure Homes to cater for those who want a consistently peaceful lifestyle or simply a break from the norm every once in a while. You can relax in your very own hot tub, swim in our Indoor Heated Pool, work out in our Community Gymnasium or meet your neighbours in our Club House and Coffee Shop; all open 365 days a year!

For all you nature lovers out there we have a centralised lake as well as multiple nature walks and trails within the vast woodlands that encompass the retreat. This wouldn’t just be great for you, it would also be great for your pets. So bring them along, they’re welcome too!

We offer 30 acres of beautiful scenery, luxurious lodges of all shapes and sizes, and like-minded people with the desire for peaceful living, why would you want to be anywhere else?

For those of you who crave a slice of adventure from outside of the area, you’ll be glad to know that the retreat is situated within a beautiful countryside with many great sites from castles to park lands. In fact the stunning Leeds Castle is only a 10 minute drive away!
