How to find us

Inner Guidance is conveniently located 90 minutes from London by train or car:
Hill Farm
Brent Eleigh Road
CO10 9PB


From London take the M11 coming off at the A120 at Bishops Stortford/Stansted. Follow to Braintree and then take the A131 through Halstead to Sudbury, then follow the B1115 into Lavenham.

From the North of England take the A14, coming off at Bury St Edmunds East/Sudbury. Follow the A134 for around 5 miles, turning left at the A1141 and following the signs to ‘Historic Lavenham’.

On arrival into Lavenham you will see The Swan Restaurant and Hotel on the corner of Water Street. Turn into Water Street and continue down until the road bears sharply to the right. This road then becomes Brent Eleigh Road and you will drive along it for around 1 mile. You will pass a layby on the left and our drive is immediately on the right –you will see our sign and prayer flags hanging on the gates. Drive all the way up to the top of the hill, and the retreat centre is on the left.

You can park opposite the house -ON YOUR RIGHT AT THE TOP OF THE HILL, in the courtyard next to the collapsing barn.
(Please do not park inside the gates of the house as staff need constant access, thank you)


The nearest train station is Sudbury. From London you will take a train from Liverpool Street and change at Marks Tey. On your way to us, you will not need to walk over the bridge, but simply walk across to the other platform where the connecting Sudbury train is usually waiting.

At Sudbury we use the Sudbury Cab Company. Their phone number is 01787 373222 and we have an agreed price of £13 (each way) with them.

For groups travelling together, it may be easier for you to get the train from Liverpool Street to Colchester station. The train is quicker and direct, but the taxi fare is around £35 each way which is no problem if there is a few of you but not such a good option if travelling alone! We don’t currently have a recommended taxi company at Colchester station.


Stansted Airport is very closely located less than 40 miles from the retreat centre. The Sudbury Cab Company have very competitive rates and can be booked to collect groups from the arrival hall.
