Really enjoyed our visit here and extended it by walking to the beach past the ruins. A lovely afternoon tea; as usual a little spoilt by other visitors allowing their children to run around, and a beautiful garden. Would like to return to join in a service. Very interesting gift shop and am looking forward to reading the books I... More

Made a quick visit here on our way to the Ferry. From what we saw it was very impressive, set in lovely gardens. Made a nice morning. Shall certainly go back to spend a bit more time having a good look around.

Mixed reviews about this place. The gardens are lovely and the shop and tea shop are nice. The building is fascinating, made of brick, but you can only visit some places there.

On a small quiet road is the tell-tell sign of the Quarr Monastery. An working Benedictine Monastery that opens up the grounds and Church for visitors to look around. You can even arrange to stay there as well. In the grounds you will also find a shop selling all kinds of books and art about the Monastery, the history and... More

Beautiful grounds. I have a strong Christian faith so the place made quite a bit of sense to me. Although I found watching the pigs as contemplative as the chapels. Very good lunch!

An actual Benedictine monastery. We visited on a wet day, and were able to go inside the Abbey during a service. We had a cream tea in a lovely farm shop, and there was an art exhibition and a book shop as well.

we spoke to Dave , one of the gardeners, his passion for the isle of Wight, and the gardens really showed through. If you can find him he will be happy to give you lots of ideas to improve your Island stay, as well as discuss all the plants .
