Group Retreats

Many of our retreats are designed as group experiences where input from facilitators, group work, and private time in silence weave together to create an enriching experience.

Tips & Ideas for a Successful Retreat

  • Plan well in advance
  • Create an interesting and attractive programme
  • Publicise your retreat well in advance to your parish (and neighbouring parishes?)
  • Balance the programme to give some free time, some silence - how much depends on the style of your retreat, and some time for people to be able to mix.
  • First time? - Ask us for help.

What to Bring?

Abbey House is situated in the centre of town but within minutes of good country walks and the Tor.

  • Walking gear
  • Dressing gown
  • Slippers
  • Camera (we get some spectacular sunsets over the Abbey ruins!)
