    Thie dy Vea Retreat house

    Welcome to our 'House of Life'.

    We are a Christian retreat house in the ancient cathedral city of Peel on the Isle of Man.

    We are surrounded by sea, rolling hills, and clear night skies, and held within the spiritual heritage of the Island.

    We invite you to come and be refreshed .... find peace ... and discover more of your purpose for living.

  • Helpful little videos

    Here are a few helpful little videos that explain a little more about who we are, what we're doing, why we're doing it, and how you can get involved too.

    What is Thie Dy Vea?

    A 2 minute video introducing who we are and what we do.

    Why the Isle of Man?

    Four minutes looking at the Isle of Man as a retreat location, including beautiful footage of the Island, especially places near and around Peel (our home).

    Why go on a retreat?

    Four minutes exploring the idea of retreat, and how retreats are so, so good for body, soul and spirit.
