(please discourage phone calls during your weekend - it may disrupt your ability to concentrate on each other and thereby gain the best from it.)

Saint Columba’s House is a Christian Retreat and Conference Centre built in 1965. It is set in its own grounds and located in a pleasant residential district of Woking. It is within easy reach of London and much of the South East of England.

It offers comfortable accommodation in single en-suite rooms.  Two rooms are adapted for visitors who have limited mobility. These rooms have a wet-room shower and alarm. The public areas are easily accessible via ramps.

Getting There

Public Transport

The nearest railway station is Woking, which is served by frequent trains from London Waterloo and from stations in Hampshire.  There is also a regular bus service to and from London Heathrow Airport Bus Station.  It is a one mile walk from the station to Saint Columba’s. Taxis are available at the station.


Woking lies about 3 miles west of the M25 between Junctions 10 and 11.

If travelling north, exit at Junction 10 onto the A3 Portsmouth Road. After 0.8 of a mile, exit onto B2215 heading for Ripley. After about 1 mile, turn right in Ripley into Newark Lane (B367). Continue for almost 3 miles (the road becomes Pyrford Common Road) until you reach the tee junction with Old Woking Road (B382). Turn left into this road and continue for 0.8 of a mile until you reach Maybury Hill, which is a sharp right turn. Saint Columba’s is about 600 yards on the right.

If travelling south, exit at Junction 11. Take the third exit onto A317 heading for Woking. Just less than a mile take the first exit at the roundabout onto the A320. Continue on the A320 for about 2.8 miles through two roundabouts. At the third roundabout take the second exit onto B382 (Old Woking - height restriction). After just over half a mile there is a double mini-roundabout. Take first exit on the first and second exit on the second. This is Maybury Hill and St Columba’s is about 600yards on the left.
