Retreats and Quiet Days
Overlooking Morecambe Bay, Abbot Hall is set in extensive grounds which include a 15 metre heated indoor swimming pool and five self-catering pine lodges, accomodating up to 22 guests.
Situated on the edge of the hamlet of Kents Bank, near to the Victorian resort of Grange-over-Sands, Abbot Hall is readily accessible by road or rail. It is an ideal centre for exploring the beautiful Lake District, and is only 20 minutes drive from Newby Bridge at the foot of Lake Windermere.
Abbot Hall can accommodate up to 100 people in single, twin, double and family rooms, many of which have en-suite facilities.
Conference facilities include a main hall, with stage area, that can comfortably seat over 100 people, as well as smaller rooms that can be used as syndicate rooms.
The Retreat Association is a national Christian organisation set up to help people find ways of exploring and deepening their journey with God through spirituality and prayer. We are an ecumenical organisation supporting those from both inside and outside the Church.
The Beamsley Project is an independent charity that provides specialist holiday accommodation for people with disabilities and their carers. Set in the beautiful Wharfedale valley, the Project converted the former Methodist chapel, at Beamsley, into a centre for self-catering groups to enjoy the many attractions of North Yorkshire. Our regular visitors tend to come during the spring and summer and this means that the Project could be used more from October to March. During that period we invite church and community groups to use the facilities for mid-week (Mondays to Fridays) and weekend gatherings (Fridays to Sundays/Mondays).
