  • Beautiful building and surroundings. This is a fully functional monastery so lots of areas are understandably off limits to the public. Considering this place has so much history, the amount the public can enjoy is limited. The shop is small but stocked with goods made in the abbey and from the local fields and when not attended works on a trust system.
  • Serene and absorbing place. I expected to see monks in a mediaeval existence but crowdfunding to hit their goals and robot lawn mowers tell me that the monks are not only devout but have a clear understanding of how best to use their time. Given prayers and tending with chores thrown in its unlikely that they have more than thirty minutes to themselves each day. Amazing to think what they have achieved here.
  • Although I'm not a believer myself I attended a Sunday Mas and found it a really beautiful and tranquil experience. The whole ceremony of the monks is something to marvel at!
  • Very peaceful quiet beautiful
  • A real abbey! Wonderful experience. Brother Finborough is a good friend to have
