The Abbey must have been huge when it was whole as indicated by information at the site. What remains is a stunning gatehouse surrounded by trees. A lovely place to potter about for two quid. Change not given... Honesty box system.

A short walk from the New Inn where I was staying. The grounds were so beautiful as is the Abbey. Take time to do the grounds and the cemetery. So much history to take inl

I wish I could have spent more time in this beautiful village, however, the short time I was here I thoroughly enjoyed wandering the streets that were full of historical buildings and tales of yore. A perfect country getaway. Don't forget to visit the Giant!!

I don't know the property you mean, but I can recommend The Old Gaol Cottage, if your family are looking for something special.
