Our Vision Statement

A spiritual retreat centre housed in a small beautiful medieval building and grounds. We offer a unique space for restoration and inspiration. Here, as an individual or a group you can find support in your inner enquiry into how you can contribute towards building a better world for all.

A Hidden Gem

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.
