“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

You don't expect such a large place of worship in a little village like this so it comes as a surprise when you enter the Priory. It was decorated fr Xmas and there was a wonderful festive, peaceful atmosphere. It's huge, with many displays of interest.

“Pop in for peace a quiet”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

So you want to switch off and relax on your short break. It's easy to find peace and quiet and recharge the spirit in the Priory. If you think you're spiritual then you cannot help but be recharged, if you are religious then all the better as this place is majestic. Enjoy

“Worth the visit”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We got there just before the volunteers were closing up for the day but a lovely lady told us everything you could need to know and pointed us in the direction of the highlights. I loved the priory, wish I could have spent longer there. Packed full of history and in very good condition. There were exhibits dotted around which were interesting. The volunteer was the main highlight, she was eager to make sure we knew what we were looking at and considering she probably gives her time for free there, I thought it was touching that she had that much enthusiasm.
