Whalley Abbey retreats


May and Oct each year.

  • Watercolour
  • 2 B&B and two evening meals, plus 1 afternoon tea included
  • No single supplement - ( an extra afternoon is also included )
  • James and Claire have been holding art classes at Whalley Abbey at least twice a year for the last ten years.
    This beauiful Abbey has been fully refurbished without loosing any of its original charm and all rooms are en suite. Lots of history and atmosphere surround the Abbey and Whalley village itself is well worth a visit.We have dinner in the old refectory where the monks used to eat in days gone by. The course is available to beginners as well as the more experienced and we have lots of fun. If you wish to bring a partner who does not paint there is a £25 reduction in cost.  We would love to have you with us.



  • Brochures of all classes, workshops & holidays are available on request.
  • Please telephone: Claire L Gray on 01704 569971 or 07876 706952 for further details
