  • Very pretty place...Loads of history...Great place for a picnic on a sunny day...Check the old yew tree out...very old....
  • The first Cistercian monastery to be built in Britain. Lovely setting but it is just a Ruin. The stones used over the years by the locals for their own needs.
  • Beautiful that is all!!!!

  • Only a 5 minute walk along a reasonable path from roadside parking, the ruins of this 12th century abbey are well worth a visit if you're ever in the area. On a summers day, there's plenty of space for a picnic and some sunbathing too!
