Turvey Monastery

Turvey Monastery is a beautiful and simple venue just north west of Bedford in the village of Turvey, surrounded by accessible countryside. There are grounds to stroll in, or a choice of local walks.

It is a small Benedictine foundation with a hospitality house. The monks welcome Crossroads to run their retreats in this self-contained environment, and we do not participate in their rhythms of prayer. 

Turvey is really easy to get to as it's close to Bedford (1 hour from London, St Pancreas station) and Milton Keynes for train travellers from the south and north and in the middle of the country.  

This was the first retreat venue Crossroads used, and we have been returning here for several years now.
