We visited on the coldest March day for 30 years when wind chill was around -10C. Inside the building was delightfully warm as was the welcome from the knowledgeable volunteer staff. At £1 for a cup of real coffee we were certainly not paying extra for the beautiful environment of the interior. Well worth a visit.

The Abbey was very much worth visiting and those working there are extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. Definitely worth making the journey to see.

Although it was a chilly day, my friend and I received a warm welcome from the volunteers inside the Abbey. There was an interesting display up the windy staircase and a peaceful atmosphere permeated the whole building. The grounds were pleasant to walk around too although we needed an hot chocolate to thaw out afterwards.

Full of character and quite impressive. We went there after the Sunday service when it was full of people enjoying a cup of coffee and a chat. Had a lovely atmosphere and people there were very friendly.

A very uplifting and welcoming visit to the Abbey, which has a huge presence in the town. We went in to find out about its history which it has a wealth of. We were also pleasantly surprised to find that it has a lovely coffee shop with comfy sofas. We had a tasty toasted sandwich and panini, and a couple of hot drinks. After a day's walking (there is a lovely riverside walk around Malmsbury) it was a tranquil end to our visit to the town.
