I have stayed at Launde Abbey three times now and am booked in for another rest in June 2015 with a group of friends and once by myself. I find the meals are good . They do their best to cater for special diets but it is best to inform them when you book or soon after. The same if... More

Off the beaten track, but worth finding. Lovely tea room, good coffee and amazing scenery. Set in an open valley, large grounds, great views. Also a small garden plants shop. Good prices. Worth a visit.

I have been to Launde Abbey several times for lunch, afternoon tea and Christmas dinner. Every visit has impressed me with the friendliness and professional approach of all involved there. I do not subscribe to any belief or faith system but always feel a warmth and acceptance when there. It really is the most lovely of places to visit, to... More

Calling in on the off chance on the way back home from Oakham, we enjoyed tea, wonderful cakes and a chance to unwind as we wandered around the serene grounds enjoying the seclusion and also the peace of the chapel which gave an opportunity for spiritual reflection. It is too close to home to stay overnight but that might be... More

Thank you for your wonderful review. Our afternoon teas are great, especially when the sun is out over the lawns. When you are here next time, pop into the office and pick up a leaflet for our pudding or steak nights - They are superb. And watch out for our Christmas & New Year's programme God Bless Ian Andrews More

Launde Abbey is not your average hotel, it's something better - a retreat house. Set within a beautiful bowl of green valley, grazed by sheep, it offers peace and tranquility. Tastefully restored and updated, it offers a bite to eat or a drink to passers by in the courtyard restaurant, as well as somewhere to stay for those who want... More

We stopped at Launde for lunch on our way home today and had a lovely time. We chose the buffet lunch which was superb quality - plentiful, tasty and excellent value for money. It included dessert - my husband chose a fresh and healthy fruit salad and I went for the coffee cake. I'm a bit of an expert on... More

We were not sure what to expect but had we given it more thought we probably would not have been close. The Abbey is a long way from civilisation, midway along a long, windy and hilly road that had room for 1 car so good luck to anyone meeting traffic coming the other way. The reception was empty on our... More

Thank you for your review. We are in a remote spot which makes us ideal for a peaceful retreat and time to reflect on God without the distractions of everyday life. The road to us is a single lane but there are many passing places and this adds to the tranquillity of the Abbey. Thank you Ian Andrews More
