A Tailored Christian Retreat

Sanctuary at Chartley Manor is a Christian Retreat located inside a beautiful historic Tudor house set in the peaceful hamlet of Chartley, Staffordshire. It sits in beautiful gardens, with spaces for prayer and meditation.

Each Retreat is personalised for guests and retreatants have daily access to Spiritual Accompaniment.

Whether you choose to stay for a number of days or to visit for a quiet day, you will certainly leave Sanctuary encouraged and refreshed.

Jesus drew near to them and said to them, “Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples; baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-20
Christian Retreat


Nicola has 16 years experience of Christian Pastoral Care, which has equipped her well for ministry at Chartley Manor. She has been an Art Teacher for 20 Years and a Christian minister for 16 years. She started a Christian charity, Arkministries, which worked with homeless people and those in need, running for 7 years.

Some will remember Nicola from Sanctuary at Colton House. She opened Sanctuary at Chartley Manor in March 2022. She offers Spiritual Accompaniment to her guests, as they journey with God beside them. Nicola provides daily worship and can give guidance on a number of Christian issues. She is always on hand if you would like guidance in the Art Room. Nicola provides a wonderful standard of food and hospitality, along with lots of love and laughter.

Remember that I have commanded you to be determined and confident! Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for I, the Lord your God, am with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9


It Is VERY Good
The Lord has graced us with the abundance of His blessing during our stay here. We have been touched in our mind, body and spirit with the provision of this place… and we have seen that it is VERY good!

An Enriching Time
Stayed recently for a four night retreat – Nicola was the perfect host. What wonderful support and hospitality. Was relaxed the moment I walked though the door and it was an enriching time. Thank you, a truly Spirit filled establishment.
