Retreat Features and Activities
Carbon Retreat is located 27 miles North-East of London, in Old Harlow, Essex. It is a short 1.5 hour drive from Central London.
Churchgate Hotel, a Jacobean Chantry House once owned by Queen Elizabeth I, is the new home of Carbon Retreat.
The building is timber frames and plastered, with fine doorways and original features.
Originally belonging to the local church of St. Mary and St. Hugh, it was founded in 1324 by John de Stainton, the rector of Harlow, but was suspended during the reign of Edward VI.
Chantry House eventually passed into the ownership of Elizabeth I and remained a royal property until disposed of by James I in 1607.
The present house was built sometime between 1615-1652 but then altered extensively in the 20th Century.
The outdoor space includes scenic seating areas and fire pit within the gated grounds. There are plenty of parking spaces and CCTV cameras provide security and peace of mind.
There is a total of five elegant and modern residential suites with en suite bathrooms. The suites can accommodate up to twenty guests as shared accommodation or can be used as five single/double occupancy rooms.
This is dependent on how you would like to use the venue and the number of guests.

It features a large screen and a wall-mounted LCD TV, perfect for presentations and training events.
