Living on a prayer..
A monastery is offering Airbnb-style stays for holidaymakers who really want a quiet and peaceful break.
St Augustine's Abbey in Chilworth, Surrey, has opened the doors of its 'modest and basic' guesthouse for visitors looking to escape the stresses of modern life.
But the four single bedrooms are in such demand that bookings are limited to a total of two weeks a year per person.
Guests get three meals a day and can join the monks in prayer and help with jobs around the monastery during their stay.
