I visited Delapre Abbey for the first time on Saturday. I was most impressed by the lovely gardens and their setting at the rear of the Abbey within high walls. A beautiful, tranquil spot with drinks and refreshments made available from a small marquee. From there we set off to the lake which was only about five minutes walk.

Nice little cafe with everything you need for a quick snack after a walk through the grounds. Nothing pretentious just a nice selection of food to keep you going back.

If you want a place to walk the dog, stroll with relatives then visit the grounds of Delapre Abbey. Around the lake takes just under an hour if you do it at a sedate pace and stop off to admire the surroundings. So you can see the formal gardens, lake and birds and wooded area at the side of the...

Always enjoyed sitting in the gardens with a cup of tea and a toasted bun. Small tea room staffed by Friends of Delapre Abbey, friendly welcoming people. Council in its wisdom decided to do away with them while renovations were going on and use outside caterers. Went there today, no Latte, toasted Tea cakes burnt, no jam. Couple on next... More

Lovely quiet walk when the snow drops were out! Great place to take your dog. Wish you could go into the ghouse and have a look around when it has been done up

Access for disabled users is very poor. If you want to visit in the summer evenings bear in mind that the gates to the walled garden are locked at 5pm. There is no access through the farm as the 5 bar gate is locked at all times. There are no suitable access paths and pushing a wheelchair over the rough... More

Easy to park, nice scenery, and quaint little coffee shop. Only misgiving was noise from A45 quite loud through trees.
