  • Wonderfully quiet place to get away from it all. The monks serve with such excellency and they truly welcome you to participate in as much or as little of their monastic rhythm as you’d like. They serve good quality food, whilst still maintaining the salubrious simplicity of the Abbey.
  • Friendly conference centre. The staff are nice and the bedroom was clean and comfortable. I love the emphasis they place on the monastic community and it’s history. My room was quite cold but they provided a portable heater for me. The food was exceptional. Some parts of the centre felt a little dated.
