This place is well worth a visit. It stands in beautiful countryside and there are walks a plenty. If you just want a stroll by the river that's there to. The ruins are very interesting and a phtographers delight From the Tea Rooms(do visit) the view to the Abbey is lovely with the hills beyond as a nice backdrop.

Lots of landscape photo opportunities, Cavendish Pavilion handy for refreshments. Pay at one car park covers the other one close by, unless your staying at the Hotel then it's free during your stay.

Picked the hottest day of the year to go! However plenty of shade available on the walks by the river and was very peaceful even though it was quiet busy. There is not a lot left of the Abbey so don't expect a NT property! The cost of parking has been mentioned by others but £8 for all day and... More

fantastic , beautiful old abbey ruins set in beautiful countryside and a river flowing nearby. Great for a picnic!!! Stepping stones across the river. Lots of little cafes in the area if you don't fancy a picnic.

Would recommend a visit to everyone. Even if you don't usually like this type of thing it's well worth a visit. There's plenty of benches at the abbey to sit and have a picnic and watch people crossing the stepping stones. There is a charge to park. £8 if I remember correctly and I think this is very reasonable, there... More

A very family and dog friendly parkland to walk in, well worth a visit. Stepping stones are a well worth while experience as long as it's safe, some stones wobble but due to the age/nature it's to be expected.

A lovely place to spend a relaxing day! Easy parking, good food facilities, stroll through the woods or by the stream or across the fields. Ideal for picnics.
