My wife and I certainly were impressed with both the hospitality of the staff at the Abbey and the ruins themselves. Beautiful setting along the River Calder and a short walk into town. Several good choices for food and drink and we ventured around the coutryside to find a "Tolkien walk" nearby. The area near Stonyhurst College was a place that J.R.R.Tolkien visited and did some writing of his wonderful tales there. His son, John, was in residence there for a time. We walked the grounds and hiked the surrounding area.
The room at the Abbey was large and nicely kept, quite new in design and with an easy access to our car. Breakfast was outstanding in the "English" tradition.
