A real gem
Everything about our visit to the abbey was interesting and fascinating. Steeped in history and well preserved artefacts. Gives a real feel for the spartan life of monks in that era

Cleese Abbey is a lovely place to visit. There is a large car park across the road from the entrance but once you have parked, there is no indication as to ho w to find the abbey. Fortunately we saw another family making their way across the road, so hoping they knew where they were going, we followed them. Throughout the site there are good information boards, starting at the substantial gatehouse. The domestic buildings of the abbey were used as a farm after the dissolution and then converted into three cottages, but have been put back as far as possible to their medieval incarnation, following the trend in the 1960s to remove all non medieval remains from sites like this.
We were able to see the dormitory, chapter house, refectory, parlour, the abbot’s bedroom, library and guest accommodation, showing what a substantial concern this was in its heyday. The abbey had close links with various aristocratic and gentry families, and their coats of arms are represented in the famous tiles with which much of the building was floored. A modern shelter has been erected to protect a particularly complete area of tiling. Sadly, Henry VIII’s men demolished the abbey church, but its footings have been exposed, so we could imagine the monks coming down the night stairs to sing the night offices. There are some wall paintings preserved, but also evidence of others that have been lost, notably the crucifixion scene once visible on the wall of the refectory. I was interested that Bishop Hooper of Gloucester, who was burnt at the stake during Mary I reign, began his ecclesiastical career as a monk of Cleeve, before encountering the reformed religion on the continent. I felt that if you had a vocation for the Cistercian way of life, Cleeve would have been a beautiful setting in which to fulfil it. There is a small shop with a coffee machine, and toilets. The site is all well maintained and a credit to English Heritage.

We visited Cleeve Abbey because we were looking for something to do and we are so glad we did. The staff were fantastic and extremely helpful and friendly. We didn’t expect it to be so complete and well preserved, we are members of English Heritage and as we enjoy visiting places like the Abbey we think the cost is well worth it.

Check cost of tickets first.

We didn’t realise you needed tickets so we were approached but the cost of tickets was extortionate. We luckily saw most of the outside before we left! It is quite special but at £12 per adult plus kids, it is not good value for a family with 12 yo and 4 yo.

Over priced
I seldom leave bad reviews, but quite frankly we found the prices charged here by English Heritage were far too high, for a family experience, so much so, that we arrived at the main entrance and totalled our parties entrance fees and decided not to go in, which was a shame, but such are times, English Heritage really need to think about inclusivity a little more. Great grounds/gardens for the little we did see!

Quieter than it deserves to be.
Surprisingly quiet, given how impressive the buildings are. Perhaps the lack of any refreshments doesn't help, or people just assume that it will be a pile of stones like most other ruined abbeys whereas it's a largely complete set of buildings with only the church completely gone. Beautiful surroundings and a really interesting place.

Recommend for a picnic in green Somerset
Great, Green and Beautiful. We stayed in a cottage in Washford, very close to the abbey. Definitively recommend; not only the abbey but the surroundings. Parking nearby, dogs' friendly. Perfect for an afternoon out with plenty of space for picnics.

unique cistercian abbey
Well preserved abbey with some unique features which makes it worth a visit. Huge preserved floor from chapter house for example.

Not as busy as nearby Dunster Castle

In a quiet rural location, the Abbey seemed very serene, especially as there were very few visitors, and for much of the time we were on our own. There are very fine restored parts of the Abbey - in particular the old dormitory building. Where did all the stones from the Abbey Church go to though?

Nice place, a little pricey
2021年6月 • 家庭
Visited with the family, takes about 30 to 60 minutes to get round. Some interesting facts and old original tiles. However based upon how much is still standing, it’s a little pricey
