  • Very nice abbey, all made with red bricks. Snug place where pray and take the mass. Outside there are many other things to see and beautiful walking. Parking is free and close by. Worth the visit.
  • One of my favourite places on the Island. Grounds beautiful, cafe food delicious. If you are stressed about something, come here and relax.
  • Very peaceful and relaxing place. Really nice cafe outdoor seating area, we were joined by a family of thrushes who shared our cake
  • I love it here. Lovely walk with the dogs and family down to fishbourne, sat in the cafe garden in the beautiful sunshine, then fed the pigs, what more could u ask for.
  • Nice small church. Walk around it cause the surrounding are more interesting.
