Visitor Information

You Are Welcome!

An Orthodox monastery is apart from the world, so it can help the world through prayer and repentance, but also by offering hospitality. The sacred and holy space of our monastery is open to all.

Please feel free to COME AND SEE.

Ours is a very small monastery, and as such we are only able to offer overnight accommodation to a very small number of people at the moment. If you want to stay with us, it is important to contact us first to ensure we have space for you.

We are open most days to day-visitors . Our front gate opens at about 8am, after the morning services, and closes after Vespers at about 7pm.
