You can download a PDF file with details of all retreats at the Open Gate for 2020 here, but note the statement below!

Coronavirus Update - We are OPEN!

The Open Gate is delighted to let the public know that we are again open and taking bookings.

We have made some changes in how we do things in order to keep both you and us safe, but one thing we can guarantee is the same warmth and hospitality that we have always worked hard to provide. Please be advised that we are unfortunately no longer able to take one-night stays.

If you would like further information about the measures we have put in place, please do not hesitate to contact us, and we will be happy to provide you with this.

We look forward to welcoming you once more.

The retreats below will be at the Open Gate, Holy Island, Berwick-upon-Tweed TD15 2SD

Telephone: 01289 389222

Please note that the Open Gate is a listed building with limited access, different levels and no bedrooms on the ground floor in the main house. If you have mobility or disability needs, please contact us before booking so that we can do our best to accommodate you. If you would still like to take part in retreats, you may need to book elsewhere on the island.

The retreat costs shown below exclude accommodation. To calculate total costs please take the B&B and room cost from the table, multiply it by the number of nights of your stay and then add the retreat cost listed below. The total cost will include all other meals.

Cancellation Policy

We understand that sometimes your plans may change for several reasons, but if you cancel, we still incur costs so the following rules apply depending on the timing of your cancellation relative to the date of your expected arrival:

  • Your deposit is generally non-refundable*.
  • 1 month - 25% of total fees are due
  • 2 weeks - 50% of total fees are due
  • 1 week - full payment of fees is due.

Total Fees means accommodation charges plus, if applicable, retreat fees.

*Please note that if you (or we) need to go into lockdown relating to COVID-19, then we will issue full refunds/not enforce the cancellation policy.

Because of this, it may be wise to take out travel insurance.
