Our prices include all your meals from supper on the day of arrival to lunch on the day of departure. The main meal is supper. A cooked or continental breakfast provides a good start to the day and packed lunches provide flexibility for visits to the Shrine or other local places of interest. On Sundays we offer a roast dinner at lunchtime. On Mondays the Sisters can provide tea and cakes in the afternoon.
Sisters can also offer some input for groups or you are welcome to bring your own speaker.
All the above, as well as use of the beautiful facilities of the house – conference room, meeting rooms, Adoration chapel and grounds – are included in our rates.
