  • This is truly "a poem in stone." I have been going here for decades with total approval and enjoyment! 
  • Unfortunately, I think some of your jelly jams also did not find totally clean feet. I wish to stay over a few nights as I heard you can. Have gone there several times in my life to pray or watch monks pray starting with my mom and aunt taking me there as a youth. Beautiful store and rolling hills of peacefulness. One of my friends was scared sleeping over there. Nice store they fundraise with. One of the ways to worship God and his creation.

  • Although I'm not of the Catholic religion, I used to frequent the Abbey. If you drive up to the chapel, it is a very peaceful place to get some thinking in.
  • Would like to visit ...
