Free admission , you can just wander around at your leisure, a great place to have a short break from touring around - only about 10 other people here too, so was nice and quiet - recommended

Whilst staying in the area we decided to go and see this abbey and we were very glad we did. Set back from the road it stands proud and is a very popular spot for tourists. The building is very well kept with a maze...More
