We strive to keep the buildings used by The Open Cloister well-run and comfortable - and above all, a peaceful and spiritual place - for event participants and organisers. The quality of rooms, equipment and catering has frequently been praised by retreatants. 


"The Hospitality and facilities were excellent and we really felt welcome. Thank you."


All events take place amid the beautiful surroundings of Worth Abbey, with its magnificent modern Church and ancient woodlands. Visitors are welcome to join the monks for prayer, explore the 500 acre grounds, and pause in our 100-year-old Quiet Garden.

Residential accommodation is in St Bruno’s House, a building close to the Abbey Church, which can accommodate up to 36 people.

During the summer, larger parties can stay in the accommodation normally used by Worth School, see the Lettings page.
