Stunning Abbey ruin in a beautiful setting! Absolutely loved seeing this abbey. The shop and staff were excellent and informative. The Hot Chocolate was also amazing!

The Abbey is awesome. We spent a good 2 to 3 hours exploring. The architecture is amazing and is nestled in a beautiful area. No trouble parking and the soup and cakes from the cafe were really tasty. Plenty of tables outside to sit and eat....if the weather is good enough. We were lucky it wasn't raining.

An absolutely stunning gem of a place, well run, lovely staff and absolutely spotless facilities. We have come back from having the loveliest 2 hours here. So impressed we have joined English Heritage. Staff engaged with our 4 year old and made a fuss of her; the Christmas tree letter hunt was a great idea and she loved exploring and finding all the clues. This really is a special place and very atmospheric. We’ll definitely be back in the summer for another visit. Also loved the gift shop which was not overpriced and had loads of special offers on, our daughter is thrilled with the little mice she bought for 5p each as am I with the Top Trumps for £1.50. Honestly cannot fault the place.
