Download a more detailed history (.pdf).

Llangasty Retreat House was originally built as a large Victorian Rectory,


When it became redundant it was acquired by Miss Dorothy Raikes, who re-opened the building as a retreat house in 1954.


From 1972 to 1996, under the care of The Sisters of Charity, the House continued to flourish,


From 1996, the House has been managed by a charitable trust formed to carry forward the vision of Miss Raikes and the Sisters of Charity.
