  • We visited on the spur of the moment and were glad we did. Although the gardens are probably more impressive in Spring, the quince trees were fully laden! The priory museum itself was the star of the show, and we spent much longer there than anticipated. The building is modern and airy, and the exhibits well chosen and interesting.
  • It's a while since I visited and I enjoyed seeing the new museum building. It's especially good for children, as demonstrated by the school party that was there. Cafe was O.K., not amazing. Grounds and remains ineresting. Sadly no time to visit the walled garden. That's for the next visit.
  • We went here for the Easter activities day. My family and I really enjoyed it and the staff couldn't help enough. A great day had by all.
  • I have never been here unfortunately yet, but would love to visit it. I am fascinated by its history. I know I would love the place, when I do get round to going.
  • Absolutely loved it - a hidden gem!!!
