The working monastery with a beautiful rose garden, orchard and walled grounds made for a different sort of stay, but just what the doctor ordered. It's a place of peace and tranquility, so may not be best suited to younger families. The rooms were clean and recently painted, but possibly lacked a bit of character, with basic furnishings. Breakfast was included and in addition to toast and cereal you could have boiled eggs, fresh fruit & yoghurts - a help yourself arrangement. Although not visited the local pub is a 3 minute walk down the road. I'd recommend the hotel to foreign travellers who want to have a different/traditional experience of England.

Please note that we are unable to accept guests for check in between 17.30 and 18.45 as as the brethren are in worship. Latest check in time is 21.00 Mirfield Monastery welcomes visitors using the monastery as either a retreat house or a conference centre. It is open for groups or individuals and has a full programme of activities throughout the year.

RETREAT HOUSE GUESTS: if you are wanting to book a place in the retreat house alongside the community please email or call us. The bed and breakfast is NOT the booking site for guests wanting to book into the retreat house. The Bed and Breakfast is on a split level site with beautiful grounds. We aim to meet the needs of all our guests but would like to highlight that there are some features which might make access difficult for people with limited mobility: There are steps into the Bed and Breakfast; the bedrooms are all on the first and second floors and unfortunately no lift is available. ... more less
