Ashram accommodation

Due to people booking and not turning up, overnight accommodation at Skanda Vale is now only available to devotees who wish to stay for extended stays of four nights or longer and participate fully in our work and worship. If you would like a shorter stay, please check for availability at our new guesthouse, Skanda Hafan.
