“Guided Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We went around the Priory with a guide who was very informative. He explained the different ages of the Priory when each wing was added.
It was all very fascinating.
The shop also had a good variety of books, cards, ceramics.
Well worth a visit.

“A-mazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

This is a gorgeous building, breathtaking and interesting. I easily spent an hour and a half there and I still want to go back - hopefully sooner rather than later :)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

all very scenic but with workmen there was a bit dusty and smelly. The sunshine was out so this did help the overall visit.

“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.
