Closure of Abbey Retreat House

CLOSURE OF ABBEY HOUSE

It is with deep regret that I have to announce on behalf of the Trustees of Abbey House that we will cease trading on 27 December this year. Our Landlord - Glastonbury Abbey Ltd - has decided to serve us with Notice to Quit with effect from this date as they require the House for their own purposes. Retreats already booked in 2017 and our own Abbey House programme will continue until the end of the year.

I know the closure of the House will be a deep loss to many people who have visited Abbey House during the last 85 years and have come to value the peace and quiet and also the spiritual aura the House conveys. We understand that the House will be available for hire on a daily basis but there will not be any residential accommodation. Those interested in using the House in 2018 for day events should contact Glastonbury Abbey on 01458 836119.

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Trustees to thank our staff, past and present, for their dedication in maintaining the high standards of hospitality that we have come to expect.

The Reverend Prebendary Peter Martin

Chairman of the Trustees of Abbey House
