The Centre is closed for the present. Please check back here occasionally.
The Avila Carmelite Centre is an oasis of peace and tranquillity. While close to main roads it is nestled away in an area that offers quiet and green spaces. The modern building, filled with light and surrounded by an extensive garden, offers an ideal space for quiet and reflection. The beautiful chapel is a place of welcome and prayer.
Avila welcomes guests of all faiths and none. It offers a variety of retreats and courses on aspects of spirituality. For those who wish to “get away from it all” and have quiet time we have eight en-suite guest rooms and two hermitages.
