Were amazed at the wonderful building - it is spectacular. The video presentation is excellent and explains the history. Lovely walks and very restful. The pigs were very entertaining and wallowing in the mud..

Great place to visit. Free entry. It’s dog friendly and they have a woodland route that you can walk. Stunning buildings. Quaint tea room and farm shop.

Quarr Abbey was such a beautiful peaceful place, the weather was beautiful for the end of October. We were greeted from the car park (which is free) by the lovely little pigs! We ate at the café, I think the shop usually has a lot...More
