We are a community of Bernardine Cistercian nuns who live according to the Rule of St Benedict, seeking God as a monastic community in prayer, work and a spirit of simplicity and silence. We welcome both individuals and groups for residential or day retreats and quiet days, either with their own leader or guided by a sister. You are welcome to join us for the daily celebrations of Mass and sung Divine Office and to enjoy the peace and beauty of the Cotswolds.
