Stay at Sanctuary


Our four residences offer a harmonious blend of natural beauty & spiritual enrichment.

Within the Sanctuary grounds, we offer Stay with Breakfast at Kilfane House and Self-Catering in the Caretakers Cottage.
Both offer refined and inviting accommodation. In our adjoining 10-acre property, we have self-catering options at The Lodge and The Rose Cottage. Both The Lodge and The Rose Cottage offer well-appointed rooms and facilities and everything you need for a joyful stay in the country.

Your stay also contributes to fulfill Lorna’s mission to create Sanctuary so thank you.
