Following fifteen years as a Baptist minister in Hertfordshire, Rev. Dawn Brown and her husband Graham moved to Burnham-on-Sea to explore a retreat house ministry.  The vision was for their home, Tillington House, to become a place of grace and joy, and a sanctuary where ‘the poor in heart can sing’. 


Since moving, they have welcomed many individuals and groups on residential retreat and for quiet days.  Guests who visit Tillington House are invited to join the rhythm of Northumbria Community prayer each day.  


Dawn has trained as a Spiritual Director through Sarum College.  Her life and previous church pastoral experience has prepared her for the opportunities she now encounters to listen to God with others.


We welcome bookings for day or residential retreats, individual or small group retreats, guided retreats or simply space to be with God. We can be flexible and our house is well equipped to meet your requirements.


If you are interested in booking time on retreat at Tillington House, or to receive spiritual direction, please contact us for more details.
