We really look forward to welcoming you to Lee Abbey Devon for your Christian holiday or Christian retreat. We are delighted to be out of lockdown and very much in action! We are following Government guidelines around Covid, so mask wearing is not mandatory anywhere in the House for guests or Community, although you may, of course, wear a mask if you wish. There are many sanitizers provided around the House for everyone to use. There is a full and varied programme for the year for guests and, if you’ve been before, be prepared for things to look and work a little differently as there has been quite a lot of ‘decluttering’ of the programme since Covid.
