  • free parking on road right outside and free entry, open 7 days but i think the hours are 8am to 6pm, great place to visit although most of the abby is just at its foundation you get to see the scale size of what the place would look like, lots of grassed areas for the kids to run about, and great for a picnic with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
  • Wonderful atmospheric location, free to explore ruins and information board's that explain the function of the various buildings. Fascinating and totally worth visiting.
  • An excellent place to visit.
  • Wonderful spot in a very pretty village. In mid week this place is almost empty.
