A Must See

Cliff J, London, United Kingdom
Parking is a little way from the Priory; disabled parking is available next to the English Heritage shop by the Priory. The walk down to the Priory above the River Coquet is lovely, with the dappled sunlight..... - probably not so good when its raining! We were given a brief history of the site by the English Heritage person manning the shop before we went around the site. There is virtually nothing inside the priory but the architecture and stain glass windows are lovely. The acoustics are excellent and we were encouraged to have a sing! Concerts are performed during the summer months; check out the web-site for more information on these. The Manor House next door is built on the site of the old Priory and it is possible to see some of the old walls down in the basement of the House. Due to the condition of the House only the ground floor and basement are open to the public at this time. The grounds are nice and very peaceful with only the sound of the River Coquet running alongside.

Should not be missed

This priory is one of many memorable places in Northumberland and is worth the modest entry fee English Heritage charge. It is free to members by the way. The car park is a couple of hundred yards from the priory and the walk is gently sloping. The lady taking the admission fee or scanning membership cards was lovely and I do urge people to make the effort to visit.

The Priory is a Grade 1 listed building and deservedly so. The adjoining Manor House is a shell but interesting nevertheless. The grounds and setting are beautiful. The lady and gentleman on reception were extremely helpful and friendly. Well worth a visit.

Good English Heritage site

The car park is off the main road but is still 400 metres from the site. The priory church was ruined after the dissolution of the monasteries and the priory church was used as a parish church for some time. It was renovated in the 19th century and the results today are very impressive. The adjacent manor house as well as the church is empty but well worth a look round. The location of this site near a river is idyllic and worth visiting for its setting alone

Sight seeing

The priory is set in a beautiful valley about 400 yards downhill from its car park. There is disabled parking nearer the site however for those in need. The priory is wonderful and very atmospheric with stained glass windows and beautiful architecture. The manor house is very much a shell of what it once was but still very interesting in its own way. The staff member who served us at the entrance was Juliet. Very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. A lovely visit thank you.
