  • It is still possible to find the tranquil corners and miss the crowds. In the grounds I watched kingfishers dart up and down the stream, relished the Orchard to myself - and a charming cat for company- marvelled at the majestic trees. Oh and the Abbey was worth a look! The Botanic gardens and delightful Artist in Residence was a treat.
  • Gorgeous. 16th C (?) cloisters and satellite rooms lend themselves to beautiful, easy, photos. The walk through the house is linear and good enough: you can feel the ages. Relatively small but pretty gardens. Once the courtyard cafe, new toilet and 2nd hand bookshop area finish being renovated I'm sure it will become a really popular NT. Of course you also have the lovely old village to wander round too, but I wouldn't bother with the tea rooms in all honesty. Bit of a lazy 'captive market' affair selling tea in cardboard cups.
  • Love coming here, its another beautifully kept national trust property. Some parts of Harry Potter were filmed here and its fun trying to recognise bits
  • Very nice place. Lots to see. Start at the museum and go through to the Abbey. Very informative guides in every room. Need any information about the room, just ask a room guide. The village is full of charm. Lots to see and plenty of little shops to look at. Nice amount of eateries. By the stables restaurant there are the public toilets. Behind the restaurant is a large picnic area. Ideal for those bringing packed lunches. Small walk from pay and display car park. Usually manned. This is a very nice place to visit. You could easily spend a lot of time here as there is so much to see.
  • Lovely place, so much to see in the Abbey. Very informative and friendly room guides. Make sure you visit the fox Talbot museum and the village too while in the area so allow several hours for your visit.
