Our ministry is one of hospitality and welcome, providing a quiet place for prayer, reflection and renewal for our guests. The beautiful setting and relaxed atmosphere is a place to find balance in our busy lives, to "come away for a while" and find peace and rest with God.
There are extensive grounds in which to wander. The semi-rural aspect to the beautiful landscape provides a country refuge away from the city.
come and stay
If you are seeking a place for renewal and refreshment, you are welcome to stay for a time in our Guest Wing or the Hermitage House. A Sister is available to spend time with guests if requested.
We offer simple, comfortable accommodation for those wishing to make a retreat and share in the peacefulness and prayer of our Community. All food and linen are provided. There is no set charge: we ask for a donation towards costs.
Guests join us for all main meals in the Refectory. Provisions are supplied in the Guest Kitchen for breakfast. Guests are also welcome to join us for the Eucharist and daily Offices (chapel services).
