We spent a short while here on a recent visit. It is so peaceful and the scenery is lovely, I'd recommend a visit. Unfortunately we didn't see the shore walk so missed out on stretching our visit a little longer there.

Lovely spot, signposted from the Abbey mill. Just follow the path down to the shore, the well is at the waters edge. There is a silver cup attached for you to taste the spring water. So peaceful.

A lovely spot not far from the cave, etc. Take the small path and enjoy the beautiful little devotionals and gorgeous lake with swans.
