‘All guest who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ’
[ The Rule of St Benedict 53.1 ]

The monastery has a small guest house, consisting of a double bedded self-contained flat; 1 two-bedded self-contained flats; 1 self-contained studio flat & facilities for day guests and groups. Since the monastic community is an expression of the mystery of the Church, the Body of Christ, where nothing is to be preferred to the praise of the Fathers glory, we are happy to share our Liturgy with everyone who comes to visit us. If you have not visited us before then we ask that you initially write to the Guest Mistress, to introduce yourself. If you have stayed with us before then please phone or email. We suggest a donation of £20 - £30 per night.

Monasteries are places of prayer and welcome.

We have three flats for guest to stay up to a week, to share in the life and the place.
