We had a long walk through the grounds whilst staying locally. Everything looked wonderful on a warm sunny day.

It’s getting silly. There’s now a flat fee of 10 pounds to park. It’s 10 pounds whether you’re there for 10 minutes or 10 hours. This is way too much and for us it spoiled the experience.

£10 per car and not per person is in my opinion great value. There is so much to see and do but be prepared to do lots of walking if you want to go on the trails. There is a great river with a few...More

The grounds and Abbey ruins are beautiful but the system for coach parking is ridiculous. £1.50 per person on board the coach....so if you are a tour organiser with a full coach you would have to pay £75 plus even for a 2 hour visit....More

Nice walk around the river, nothing special. Will cost you £10 to park regardless of how long you stay and if you fancy something to eat bring a wedge as its £8 a sandwich and £4.50 an ice cream!
