We stumbled upon this place by chance and enjoyed lunch in the tearoom. Excellent value, they do sarnies, ploughmans, and various hot dishes and it is good value. We visited the abbey itself, and although we have no interest in religion, it was still interesting, historical, and had a very calming feeling. Quarr abbey is home to the monks and... More

Everything about this place seems to exude peace and calm. The abbey is a really interesting building, and it's worth looking at the museum exhibition to see how it was developed. The gardens are really a working area with pigsties and orchards. Good tea shop and you can buy local products such as their own ale.

What a super place a spend a relaxing morning or afternoon. Lovely walks, so peaceful. The Abbey is a lovely place to sit quietly and contemplate. The cafe provides a lovely coffee and cake. Plenty of seating in the garden where chickens roam freely hoping for a few crumbs to be thrown down to them.

Joined the Tuesday touring got to hear some of the more interesting history including anecdotes from the tour guide. Time after the tour to just sit in peace and tranquillity and reflect, irrespective of personal religious leanings. Tour guide mentioned several times the cafe served excellent coffee and he was right.

This was our last stop before boarding the ferry after wifey and I spent the day visiting various places around the island. It has a large free car park. Before the abbey, there are some walks available (see the farm animals). The small visitor centre includes a room which shows a 10 minute video of the abbeys history which is... More

We visited today with our three dogs and enjoyed every moment as the monastery was just beautiful the gardens were serene and tranquil and the woodland walks the boys just loved. stopped for lunch in the tea rooms and had the ploughman's and it was one of the best we have ever had and very reasonable in price.
