History and Location
St Cuthbert's is a Cor et Lumen Christi Community and retreat centre on the edge of the Lake District National Park, in Wigton, Cumbria. The 150-year-old convent was the first building in the old county of Cumberland built for a religious community following the dissolution at the reformation and retains much of its historic character. Around half an hour's drive to Keswick, St Cuthbert's is an ideal location for retreat and relaxation. It is within easy reach of the Skiddaw fells, with many beautiful and quiet places for walking nearby. Only fifteen minutes from the sea; there is plenty for families to do.

Our conference room is an attractive venue, offering the latest technology, with exposed red sandstone walls and wood burning stoves. Our garden room is a comfortable, bright room with sofas and a kitchenette. Both rooms are used by the Community to host our groups and events. They are also used regularly by a number of groups from the local community.

We have a chapel where the Most Blessed Sacrament is reserved, providing a sanctuary for private prayer. We currently have accommodation for up to 40 people residentially.

Members of the Community and Mission Fellowship receive ongoing formation and we have a committed group of people who are growing in relationship with God and each other.
