Facilities at Missenden Abbey

What people have to say:

'I don't get breakfasts like this at home.'

'There is plenty of space to set up your work station and a comfortable arm chair. Who needs more?'

BreakfastThe Abbey building has a bar, garden room for tea and coffee and the dining room.  Outside there are 7 acres of grounds with tables and chairs for you sit and relax in whilst you have your tea or coffee.  Daily papers are available in the garden room, though many people prefer to forget the outside world.

There is a large dining room and from the moment you walk through the door you have the option to be a saint or sinner when it comes to your food choices.  There are homemade cookies, desserts and afternoon cakes on offer, or a selection of fresh fruit, salads and yoghurts.

The 'teaching' rooms are the same as those used for meetings and conferences, so they are well appointed, comfortable, well lit and most are air conditioned.  There are hearing loops but no lift to get to the first floor, so if this would be difficult for you, please let the Abbey know.

Dining at Missenden Abbey

Many course participants stay and there are 57 comfortable en-suite bedrooms on two floors of a purpose-built block.  If you live near enough and would prefer not to stay at the Abbey, that's no problem. Non-resident students are always very welcome.

There is free Wi Fi throughout the venue and accommodation.  For details of this, ask at reception for the appropriate password and instructions.

If 7 acres of peaceful surroundings are not enough for you, a short walk out of the grounds is the main street of Great Missenden with local shops, a tea room and the Roald Dahl Museum.
