We have a small resident community at Gomde and try our best to make everyone welcome.

Day Visitors

Visitors are very welcome. Please telephone beforehand to make an appointment and check someone will be available to show you around and explain our activities.  Call 01302 842 503 or email national@gomde.org.uk
The extensive grounds of Lindholme Hall help to establish a tranquil and secluded atmosphere to aid meditation and quiet reflection, we therefore do not have an open access policy on the land.

Train Travel Tips:
To get the cheapest train fares it is necessary to book tickets 2-3 weeks in advance.

If you plan to come by train from Stansted Airport you will have to change trains at Peterborough - it is sometimes cheaper to book 2 separate tickets Stansted to Peterborough and then Peterborough to Doncaster rather than one ticket from Stansted to Doncaster.
Sounds odd, but the UK train system is not always logical!

Nearest village is Hatfield Woodhouse which is on the A614.

Directions from M18/M180 Junction:

Leave the M18 at Junction 5 and take the M180. Leave the M180 at the first exit, Junction 1, onto the A614 and follow the signs for Hatfield Woodhouse. Once in Hatfield Woodhouse take the first turn left into Remple Lane opposite the primary school. At the Y junction bear left into Hollingbridge Road. After ~400 metres (~1/4 mile), the paved road takes a 90 degree right-hand bend and after another 200 metres (220 yards) the road takes a 90 degree left-hand bend. After this bend  turn right and cross the metal bridge onto  Turf Moor Road. Follow the road until eventually, after ~1.5 km (~1 mile), the road makes a left-hand turn into Lindholme Bank Road (you will see the Nature England car park and picnic spots here). Follow this road for ~1.5 km (~1 mile) and you will reach two semi-detached cottages on your left. (Satnav systems may think you have arrived by now!) Pass the cottages and continue down the road for ~400 metres (~1/4 mile) until you come to Lindholme Hall.
