On the brow of Seaford Head, Sussex, sits Florence House; rock solid in the sea air and surrounding wild landscape. In many ways its situation is a metaphor for its life’s purpose – a haven for the spirit however the wind blows. It’s a much loved venue for life enhancing workshops, retreats, weddings and conferences. In essence, it lovingly embraces divine inspiration, the sacredness and potential of each individual and the healing power of the landscape in which it sits.
The beautiful interior of the house itself, the abundant gardens, the proximity to the sea and the wildness of the Downs, make Florence House ideal for retreats and workshops involving personal development and transformation. You have the potential to create your own mood and atmosphere as we offer exclusive occupancy. Because Florence house stands within its own grounds there is no one to disturb. We are renowned for our delicious and creative home cooking produced by our own chefs. Produce is locally sourced where possible or from our own kitchen garden.
There are magical places within the gardens and we encourage our clients and guests to take advantage of these areas for activities and ceremonies. Our aim is to create a unique, nurturing environment. The house is set in 6 acres within an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of the South Downs National Park and has views of Seaford Head and Seaford Head Golf Course. The beach is a 2 minute walk away. Mairin and Steve invite you to share and enjoy this very special place; whether you are looking for a private retreat or wish to use the space for a group event or visit for a few days peace and quiet. Their vision is to be recognised as the best retreat and conference venue for hire in the South East!
