Making a Reservation

It is always best to make a booking by contacting us as early as possible to ensure we have space available. We will contact you once we have received your email (see below). When you
have been accepted, we do ask you to confirm your plans to come once more. If you are joining us for the entire term, please do note that the dates given above are INCLUSIVE. We cannot accommodate people arriving before and/or wanting to stay on after the dates published.


Our space is limited so if your schedule changes or you have to cancel for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible.  We have tried to keep the cost down. Although our resources are limited, feel free to enter into a discussion with us about finances.

For short-term visitors, fees are to be paid upon your arrival. For long-term visitors, fees can be paid monthly in advance and the first month is due when you arrive. Fees include 3 meals per day, a bed (with sheets, blankets, and pillow), towels, laundry, etc.

If you are coming as a family with children it is important to book early. It is worth bringing your children's books and toys. While one parent is having personal time for half a day the other is looking after the children. The family flats have their own cooking facilities and, again depending on your children's ages, you will be expected to have some meals on your own, as little children especially cannot handle the discussion lunches. 



Important Note to Non EU Visitors—If you are coming from a non E.U. country, it is essential that you describe yourself as a visitor rather than as a student since we are not a formal educational institution in the eyes of the government.

Further you should have a paper copy of our introductory letter and UK Border Agency letter (please request these from us by emailing, copies of any email correspondence with us, plus a return ticket and proof that you can pay for your stay (i.e., a bank statement).


To request a reservation, please send us an email with the following information: Name, Gender, nationality, Dates of Attendance, Email Address, Phone Number, Medically Diagnosed Food Allergies (see the note "Regarding mealtimes at English L'Abri" on the About Your Stay page for more information), and a Brief Biography.
