  • Very quiet with a stream running through. Would be ideal for a picnic in nice weather. The entrance road is very rough cobble stone and will rattle your car even at 5 mph.
  • A small adventure so give yourself an hour or two to see everything. Nice entrance and small gift shop. Plenty of room to run around for the little ones and clear areas of grass for a picnic. Beware of the large flies that are around since you are close to a river. Parking lot is small but I wouldn't expect this place to be crowded. The lane getting to the entrance is small and rough (cobble stones) and is tough for cars to pass each other. Still, not bad.
  • A small set of ruins set in a peaceful valley. There is a stream which cuts through it but poses bo risk to children if supervised properly. Around the Abbey are a few trails which are popular with dog walkers. Well worth a visit.
  • A very quiet and calm place to visit. The history is interesting and from viewing the ruins that remain, you can only begin to guess at what am amazing place to visit it would have been in its hayday. Small coffee shop there as well.
  • Interesting historical monument/buildings, well worth a visit entrance price not too steep.
