We had our wedding RECEPTION here. You can't have a wedding CEREMONY here, or at least you couldn't in April 2013 it may have changed, we got married at St Mary and All Saints literally just round the corner. Having visited a number of wedding venues in the area we noticed they all seemed to look the same and offer... More

We stayed in this very special b&b while visiting Whalley and loved it. Lovely friendly reception, pretty well-equipped room. Guesthouse is set in the quite grounds of ruined Whalley Abbey. Tranquil & atmospheric but right in the centre of the village. Good breakfast in old refectory. We'll return!

The Abbey ruins at Whalley belong to the local diocese and a walk round the grounds costs only £2 per adult; this is well worth it as a surprising amount of this Cistercian Abbey is still standing. You're given a simple guide to the ruins when you pay, which is adequate for interpretation of the site - a guide book... More

We spent three nights in The Abbey and enjoyed the experience very much. The room and bath were large and well appointed. It was extremely quiet and the grounds were superb. We spent one morning exploring and taking photos of extraordinary ruins and gardens.

Although I only live 25 miles away I paid my first visit to the Abbey ruins a couple of weeks ago. Why did I wait so long? The site has a beautiful location by the river and the gardens were full of colour as it was summer. We wandered through the ruins following the map and guide and were impressed... More

I have lunched at the Whalley Abbey coffee shop a few times with a friend who is quite keen on the location - I haven't always been totally satisfied with my food but haven't liked to complain. However, having found soil in my salad yet again today I felt obliged to say something - unfortunately our waitress wasn't that concerned,... More

Visited the old Abbey ruins with friends. What beautiful gardens! Nice small museum area with a bit of history of the Abbey. Wonderful place to take photographs! Toured the church and churchyard. Friendly staff.

I have stayed here on retreat and much appreciate the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere. If feels like a sacred place. The food is always good and home cooked and the staff helpful. Ideally placed for walking and shopping and good pubs in the town

As the bride and groom, we naturally had the best room in the Abbey. The bridal suite was light and spacious and has lovely views of the gardens. It has a beautiful old country charm. This is a magical place to have a wedding set in the ruins of the Tudor monastry. The bedrooms are geared towards those on a... More
