‘Every monastery is to continue the tradition of welcoming guests and the needy as Christ according to local circumstances. Let those whom the providence of God has led to the monastery be received by the brothers with reverence and kindness but without allowing this service to impair monastic quiet.’
The Guest House accommodation is for relatives and friends of the monks, retreatants, and those interested in our life. The Abbey is a religious house and is unable to accommodate bed and breakfast, half-board, or tourist guests.
This varies from one or two nights up to five days which is the normal allocation in any one year. Special arrangements are possible, upon request, from the Guestmaster.
The Abbey does not charge guests for their stay, but we are grateful for offerings made to help defray the cost of running the Guest House.
