An exceptional place to visit. Worth sitting there quietly & soaking up the 800/900 years of history & atmosphere.

Steeped in history, the Franciscan Friars have been here for 750 years. The restored abbey is beautiful in its simplicity. The gardens are wonderful and tranquil. Well worth a visit

We walked through the grounds of this lovely place one evening. The Stations of the Cross in the woods was lovely as was the entire grounds. It had a lovely peaceful feeling for everyone
