Since the building was cleaned two years ago, it really shines. An amazing achievement for untrained monks to build something so beautiful and modern. The gardens are also well-maintained and peaceful. Helpful staff and good COVID systems.

The Abbey is in a beautiful setting and we were surprised how recently it was built. Being built by the monks and finished in 1938. It has s beautiful window. Sadly it was wet when we arrived so we only managed the Abbey which is a lovely building. There Covid walk round was very well done and we had to sign in on the ap on arrival. Maybe one day we will go back on a dry day and perhaps try the restaurant.

We visited here for the umpteenth time and enjoyed walking around the grounds and the abbey with both a teenager and small child. There's always something to see and it's such a beautiful and tranquil place, plus the new CV-19 mitigation doesn't ruin the experience. No complaints here!

Visited here and although parts of the Abbey are closed, it was still lovely to walk around the gardens. The church is beautiful inside and the stained glass window, created by the monks, is stunning. The restaurant is open and is covid safe. Serving lunches, snacks and teas at good prices. Free entry to the gardens allows a peaceful wander around even if it is raining....
