A stunning retreat house in the heart of England

Set in beautiful parkland of 450 acres on the borders of Leicestershire and Rutland, the Abbey has 39 en-suite bedrooms which can accommodate up to 78 people; full conference facilities; comprehensive dining facilities; extensive cultivated gardens and a wonderful twelfth century Chapel (part of the original Augustinian priory).

Launde Abbey was the perfect place for us to hold our wedding reception and spending time with friends and family in such a special place made it all the more unforgettable.

I cannot fault any of what I have found here, simply that the warmth of welcome, kindness and example of service that everyone gives at Launde is amazing – the rhythm of prayer is just wonderful.
