The location of this abbey is beautiful slightly up a hill from the lake that surrounds it on two sides. The inside is lovely and well worth a visit. We walked around the lake and got to see it from many locations.

The architecture is just amazing. I'm not normally a great fan of churches but this one has such beautiful old woodwork and stonework,it's well worth a visit - and a walk around the beautiful lake to a 'secret' grotto is highly recommended.
