The well preserved ruins of Whalley Abbey are not to be missed when visiting this area of Lancashire. The history of the abbey is fascinating and the grounds are beautifully tended. Lovely gardens and riverside walk. The cafe is quite attractive and the toilets clean. When we visited, no one was on duty at the kiosk so entry was free... More

First of all, let me apologise to the management of Whalley Abbey for the late review of the Abbey and its grounds as I sought the views from my daughter and her newly married husband. Our daughter Rosanne and her fiancée were married at Whalley golf club on Sunday 2nd of August, just a stones throw from the abbey early... More

My family stayed at Whalley Abbey in August 2015 and we cannot speak highly enough of the quality of hospitality, surroundings and accommodation at the Abbey. Their customer service is excellent and the staff team are generous and friendly. The breakfast is locally sourced food for the full English and a nice selection of continental choices. The Abbey grounds are... More

The preserved remains of Whalley Abbey are worth visiting. The history of the abbey is fascinating and the grounds are beautiful. Lovely gardens and river walk. A new cafe should also be opening soon, so I'll be going back to see what it's like. Only £2 to go in and no parking costs. Good value.

We were attending a wedding in Mitton Hall nearby to Whalley. We had travelled up from South of England the morning of the wedding. The staff at the Abbey arranged for us to check into our rooms at 11.30 to freshen up before going to the wedding. The Abbey is set in beautiful grounds. The staff were friendly and helpful....

Fantastic place to relax and forget about the world outside. I took advantage of three nights for the price of two including full English breakfast. The food was freshly cooked and the service fantastic. The Rooms are well furnished and the beds comfortable. Fresh towels every morning. Cannot wait to return

I'm lucky to say I live in Whalley and have such a beautiful venue on my doorstep. I was first introduced to Whalley Abbey as a venue in 2002 at my cousin's wedding and the service we received then was enough for my wife and I took book the venue for our wedding in April 2013. The personal assistance in... More

The room was clean, bright and had all the facilities I could have expected and far exceeded my expectations based upon the fact that the room rate... More
