One of the Guesthouse Rooms
Guests normally eat in the Guest Refectory, although some guests may be asked to join the monastic community for meals. There is also a separate guest courtyard where meals may be taken in the warmer months, weather permitting. Outside meal times, the courtyard is a pleasant area to read or meditate.
While a number of groups wish to take their meals in silence, others benefit from being able to talk. Where the two different types of group coincide, they are usually seated at separate tables and are asked to be mindful of each other’s needs. The community tries to ensure complete silence in the monastery, but there may be times when some noise is unavoidable.
The kitchen is modern and well-equipped. Our small, dedicated staff produces food of high quality and can cater for a number of special dietary needs as listed on the booking form. We cannot guarantee that the ingredients supplied to us were prepared in a nut-free environment. Guests with very particular dietary needs are advised to bring their own food. If in doubt, the Guestmaster can advise you.
