  • Beautiful place, the Priory is so peaceful and a real hidden gem, the stained glass windows are wonderful. The manor house is nice to look round, it's such a shame so many of these buildings were left to rot but thankfully the English Heritage are looking after it, definitely worth a visit.
  • Beautiful setting down in a wooded valley. The Victorian's saved this Benedictine gem. The adjoining Manor House, though in quite a ruined state, is equally fascinating even though only the ground floor and basement are accessible.
  • What a wonderful setting and so peaceful. The lady at the kiosk was very informative. Unspoilt buildings though car park a steep walk away
  • A nice quaint, picturesque and peaceful priory with beautiful surroundings.
  • Nice tucked away little place , car park about 10 mins walk away , beautifully restored chapel and a Manor house that appear to be in the stages of restoration .... would recommend this place
