They have online prayer requests, and visit is very calm and joyful experience because its in a country side and not so crowded.

If you are in the area, make a point of visiting this place. It might not be everyone's cup of tea but give it a chance. There is a small car park uphill from the square, reasonably priced by the hour or day. Reception is...More

Parking is difficult unless you have a disabled badge. Have you considered staying over? Nortons is situated in the grounds and offers food and accommodation, or there are B&B facilities locally.
