We saw a lot of Abby ruins in England, but while this seems to be lesser known, it is equally impressive in scope, history, and grandeur!

Nice outdoor area surrounded by the trees & immaculate gardens. Great to just sit and enjoy. Or have a stroll around the grounds.

Hard to get our heads round what the scale of this place was. Steward was very informative and happy to share her knowledge. The Guide Book was quite useful in finding our way around.

This Abbey is truly beautiful. Certainly gets your imagination going, imagining how it was all those years ago. The lady on reception was very knowledgeable and happy to help and share stories. Even our boys enjoyed it there, aged 13 and 14.
