A group of us from a Wildlife Trust spent 4 nights based at Whalley Abbey. Everyone in the Abbey contributed to making our stay such a good and memorable one. Without exception, members of the group commented on the wonderful place that Whalley Abbey is and the special atmosphere both in and around it. Both the food and the accommodation... More

An amazing place to stay and absorb the atmosphere. Set in the grounds of a medieval abbey, with remains still to be seen. Part of the abbey was rebuilt as a house - itself steeped in history and complete with its own park and river. Situated in the beautiful village of Whalley, with the countryside of the Ribble valley and... More

Whalley Abbey is a charming place to stay. It is in a beautiful setting with splendid grounds. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is good. The staff are helpful and charming. Whalley has plenty of places to eat and is a 5 minute walk. Worth a visit.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we first saw the Abbey; it looks very grand and is in a beautiful setting. This contrasts starkly with the room we were given, which was very small, cheaply furnished with very tired decor. I had to ask for a bedside lamp as there was only one in the room, and there was no... More

I visited Whalley Abbey with colleagues on a work funded retreat and was immediately charmed by the drive up to the venue. Once through the gateway I was impressed by the beauty of the architecture and the splendour of the grounds. The location was most impressive and the interior of the building was equally stunning, the team on Reception were... More
