How to Book

Please carefully read the points below before making a booking:

  • Booking requests can only be made up to three months in advance.

  • The minimum stay for all guests is three nights.

  • The maximum stay for new guests from the UK is one week. If coming from outside the UK up to two weeks may be requested.

  • Previous guests may request to stay longer based on how their prior visits have worked out.

  • From January 1st to April 1st we hold our winter retreat. At this time: there are no overnight guest stays, the booking form is disabled, and email access to the guest monk or nun is unavailable until March 25. 

Cancellation Policy
 

If a confirmed guest cancels their stay less than two weeks before their arrival date or doesn't show up, it is possible they will be asked to forgo staying at Chithurst for up to six months.

 

This policy deals with non-emergency and non-health related reasons for cancelling. In cases of emergencies or illness, please contact us as soon as possible to let us know of your need to cancel or your reasons to have not shown up for a reservation.

We have this policy in place due to the high number of overnight guest requests, our very limited accommodations, and a history of last-minute cancellations and no-shows. Thus, we ask that reservations not be made until one can firmly commit to one’s requested dates, so that other interested guests do not lose the chance to stay here.

Please note, on some rare occasions guests have come to stay at Cittaviveka Monastery whose conduct has not been in harmony with our community standards. We reserve the right to ask such guests to leave when we feel it is appropriate.

Using the Booking Form

 

Please be sure to mindfully read each of the pages below prior to making a booking request:

To make a reservation, please use the male and female booking form buttons below (available to book from 25 March 2020 onward) Once we have received the booking form, we will confirm the booking by email. 

The men's and women's accommodations are located separately in the monastery, so bookings are also made separately. Please note that we are unable to guarantee single rooms for any guests.

If you have any questions for the Guest Monk or Women’s Guest Assistant not related to a reservation request please email:
