Hazelwood House is owned by Dawliffe Hall Educational Foundation (DHEF), an educational charity which has a Christian ethos and promotes respect for the individual, personal freedom, self-confidence and responsible attitudes in professional, private and public life. It is supported by many who share the same ideals of service to society.
Hazelwood House comprises a Conference Centre and a Cultural Centre.
The Conference Centre hosts workshops and residential retreats where people of all backgrounds and ages find a warm welcome and are encouraged to live their Christian calling in very practical ways, at work, in family life, in social relationships and in all the little things that make up their ordinary life.
The Cultural Centre organises a variety of activities for women of all ages.
These activities include:
- Workshops on topics such as the home and family development,
relationships, communication, fashion.
- A club for schoolgirls aged 9 to 13
- SMART Academy and other activities for girls aged 14 to 17.
- Concerts and Fun Days.
A Christian outlook
All spiritual and doctrinal activities offered at Hazelwood House are entrusted to
Opus Dei, a Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church.
Hazelwood House is a 19th century building which was bought in 2003 by
DHEF – Scotland (SCO SC039512). It was refurbished in 2010. Despite DHEF's
continued support in its on-going fundraising, we still rely heavily on the support
of many generous donors.
The heritage of the building goes a long way back and is very interesting. If you
