Retreat to Iona

Bishop’s House is open from March until November for full board guests and can be booked for small groups or exclusive use groups (who then have the whole house to themselves). A number of open weeks are also on offer. These are an opportunity for individuals to find peace in the house with other modern-day pilgrims. Bishop’s House does not often offer led retreat programs per se, but it does arrange for a regular rhythm of services and meals that help to structure the day. The library is a treat for guests to dip into and find nourishment for the mind and heart.
