We spent about an hour going around these lovely ruins. It is a free attraction and doesn't appear to be staffed. There are plenty of information boards around the site which are very helpful in helping you to imagine what it must have looked like....More

We stopped here for a walk around the very atmospheric ruins, all the more of interest to me because my recent genealogical researches revealed that several of my distant ancestors were buried here. We were even able to enjoy a cup of tea before resuming...More

It is a beautiful ruined castle, with information about the different areas and how they were used. It took about 20 minutes to look round, and then we went for a walk in some of the beautiful surrounding countryside. Better on a sunny day!

There's more here than meets the eye. From the outsode it looks like just another ruin, and in some ways it is, but they are extensive, and offer an insight into the life of an abbey 500 plus years ago
