Our new Convent and Retreat House at Gerrards Cross is now open to Guests – offering space in which to rest and re-charge the spirit.  (St. Michael's Convent, Ham Common is now closed.)

Pleasantly situated near the East Common in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, with many woodland walks nearby, we hope you will find this an ideal location for retreat and reflection.

Our guest area is integral to our Convent home, creating an atmosphere which is relaxed, quiet and comfortable.
