  • Beautiful place to visit on a nice day. Well kept and very peaceful
  • This place is so lovely has a siecial place in my heart. If you have not been you will not be disappointed.
  • Came across Furness Abbey by chance and I’m so glad we stopped! Even though the weather wasn’t brilliant it was so peaceful which allowed you to really take in the full extent of these beautiful ruins. The museum was also really interesting and gave you a real understanding of how the Abbey would’ve functioned. Would definitely recommend a visit to anyone who is in the area!
  • Unique ruins of an abbey that was glorious in its day, a great place to go and walk round in peace on a beautiful day. Very photogenic and under exploited as a historical piece.
  • Best place in the world! I go here when I'm upset, happy, sunshine, rain... Lovely place to have a walk and enjoy nature at its best and even a look round the Abbey with a chance to sit outside with a cuppa tea and a tea cake 😘
