As a spiritual retreat centre, we offer our guests a uniquely peaceful place for retreat and rejuvenation. Housed within a beautiful, thriving example of an English medieval Manor, we welcome guests from all faiths and none, to experience our warm and inclusive hospitality. Our magnificent timbered Great Hall, dating from the 13th century is a glorious space for group activities including lectures, concerts, yoga classes and creative workshops.Located 10 miles south of Oxford and 60 miles from Central London, our international appeal attracts groups from all over the globe who return time and again to experience our inspiring atmosphere. Founded and maintained within the Christian tradition, The Abbey is a place dedicated to spiritual enquiry, prayer, mindfulness and the discovery of how to live a contemplative life. The Abbey offers a warm welcome, comfortable facilities, peaceful environment and nurturing food. We invite guests to share this supportive environment, encouraging you to create your very own home from home.

I use the Abbey, with colleagues, for academic writing retreats and cannot rate it highly enough. The food is fantastic, the community who run the Abbey are incredibly helpful, and the peace and tranquility is wonderful. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. It is a wonderful place to think, work and relax all at once.

The Abbey has a warm, welcoming community, gorgeous grounds to roam, beautiful and historic houses to stay, and wonderful food all made from scratch for the guests. The walled garden serves as a great place to relax, and the property hosts a perfect environment for meditation and reflection.

Expensive for the size of the dishes. Too long wait. Non very professional staff. Cozy pub.
