  • Particular Abbey nestling in the Welsh hills. A little hard to find but worth going to. Positive note: we arrived in 5 minutes from closing time but the staff gave us 15 minutes to visit at no charge. Downside: surrounded by campsites.

  • My wife and I visited august and we were pleasantly surprised at how much of the Abbey was still standing. The history of the Abbey was really interesting. Although there is a main road and a caravan park so close its so quiet. You can easily walk around the Abbey and get lost in your thoughts. I was equally impressed with the amount of swallows flying about inside. What a lovely place to spend a couple of hours in deep contemplation. Free parking and only £4 entry. Fantastic.
  • Valle Crucis is a wonderful ruin of a cistercian abbey. If you go in the off-season, there are certain parts of the abbey that you can't get into, however it's still worth the visit. Be sure to check out the Pilar of Eliseg just north of the abbey property along the main road.
  • Gorgeous place and lovely staff. Very dog friendly which is great. Only marred by the caravan park next door but that's not English Heritage's fault!
  • Lovely place to eat a picnic and relax and imagine what it must have been like long ago. Shame it so close to a campsite.
  • Nice spot to pass a few minutes - you can go in even when it's closed.
