Came here with friends as a birthday treat. Although we have lived in the area for years, we have never visited before, but most definitely will be back.
The abbey and surrounding area is absolutely stunning. The abbey, itself, is very plain, but has an aura of such spirituality and calm, that brings peace to all. This is one of the reasons why I would go back.
The other reason is a bit more down to earth!! The cafe serves the most amazing food, extremely good value and delicious. The cream tea is wonderful. Delicious fresh, well filled sandwiches; scone, cream and jam and then lovely cakes all served with lots of lovely tea. (or coffee if you prefer)
The shop has some lovely gifts, as well as religious items. the staff in both the cafe and shop are very pleasant and helpful.
