We visited The abbey about 3 years ago. It is a fabulous place, made memorable by the wonderful singing and tranquil atmosphere. The adjacent village is very pretty, lovely galleries and restaurants and a great antique shop about 400 metres up the hill from the abbey. Definitely worth spending time. We are heading back this year.
