About Us

The Cliffs is hosted by Artie and Clare Shearman who live on-site.

Artie and Clare moved to back to Australia from running a retreat house in Looe, Cornwall, England  in 2020.  Their vision is to continue what Brian and the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart started and provide a place of retreat for anyone who is looking for some space and time out for spiritual reflection.  It will suit individuals, or small groups. 


"We welcome people of all faiths and none.  We feel particularly called to support those in full or part time ministry, and more generally those who care for others, with little time or resource to take time out for themselves."

Clare is a Spiritual Director.  She can provide individual guided retreats and spiritual direction for guests and locals.  

Artie enjoys hospitality, is a great cook and is IC garden and grounds.  

Bursaries are available to ensure that everyone can go on retreat, whatever their financial circumstances.
