“Peaceful, attractive, historically interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We attended a Communion Service and found it uplifting. Interesting to look round even if you do not want to attend worship.

“Peaceful spot in a beautiful village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

The information guide was most helpful and worth reading. It is a lovely old building with an amazing history. So lucky it is still there for people to enjoy. Even if you just visit for a short time you will not be sorry.

“Impressive, peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We were surprised to find sheep grazing around the grounds, the Priory has plenty of information, and keepsakes, I lit a candle for loved ones departed.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This is a remarkable place to visit. You are given a small information guide on entering that is very informative.It is free entry but most people leave a donation. Well worth a visit.

“Charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Well worth a visit. I offered to pay an entrance fee but was told it was free. But we did spend a considerable amount in the gift shop. Some very moving modern sculptures by Josefina de Vasconcellos.
