After a long walk from Ryde on a Sunday it was great to be able to drop into Quarr Abbey's cafe and sample some of the good food on offer. Even though it was fairly busy its kitchen - visible from the service counter and looking very clean - we got our hot food quickly and just right. As it... More

Went at the end of an afternoon, enjoyed the exhibition which explains a monks life, duties and history of the abbey. There were some lovely crafts on display through a door in the courtyard too. Looked inside, and if you walk to the back there is a little lovely chapel too, might be easy to miss - door was open... More

Quarry Abbey not a place you would think to visit. But what a place self sufficient for the monks,lovely garden with the vets and chickens. They have their own pigs as well.The grounds are nice to walk through even a wooded walk. Nice cafe where you can sit with a nice cup per and reflect on life.

Having visited the island many time we had never visited Quarr Abbey, so pleased we did, though weather grim thus walking around the gardens and walking to the mediaeval abbey remains made us a bit damp. Beautiful building built with Belgian bricks and lovely inside and out.

We came across this while walking the Coastal Path. Set in stunning grounds, all respectful visitors are welcome. We arrived on a Sunday morning and were honored to witness a service, which was amazing. The coffee shop has beautiful grounds where you can sit and relax against the backdrop of the monastery. Well worth the stop, highlight of our day... More

We almost drove right past this place on our way to East Cowes from Ryde. It was a beautiful day and as we saw the entrance sign decided on a whim to pull over and explore. So glad we did as it was a lovely place. Free parking and entry to the site. We had a peak inside the abbey,... More

Having been to the IoW several times we had never been to Quarr before - we were so glad we found it and will go back to the Abbey again. It is so peaceful - a wonderful place to just sit and relax and think. Also if you walk towards the medieval ruins there is a fab view across to... More
