Minsteracres Monastery


Minsteracres was a large county house built for the Silvertop family in 1758, now a monastery / retreat centre. The building has been extended a number of times, including the addition of a 2nd floor in 1811, and the North Block in 1865. Minsteracres is a Grade II listed building. The old stable block (separately Grade II listed) was converted into residential accommodation for the retreat house, which opened in 1967. Minsteracres is set in an estate of acres, woth a resident community of the Roman Catholic Passionist tradition.
